(1) CLAIM: After the existence of the “home brew” email server was revealed, Hillary turned over all work-related emails to the State Department from her private server, deleting only personal emails — including missives about “yoga routines,” “family vacations,” and “planning Chelsea’s wedding.”
REALITY: Records prove that among the 30,000-plus emails deleted by Hillary’s team were notes regarding Benghazi and other Libya-related policies. Congressional investigators have no idea what else may have been unilaterally erased without independent supervision. What we know for certain is that some number of official emails were permanently deleted, not handed over to State, as claimed. (Bonus lie: Team Hillary initially claimed that emails were automatically flagged for deletion using a keyword search mechanism. They later changed their story, averring that they’d reviewed every individual email — which means they necessarily eliminated emails they actively knew were not personal in nature).
(2) CLAIM: Hillary set up a secret email server in her home as a means to simplify her life; she needed this arrangement to streamline all of her emails onto one mobile device.
