Hillary Clinton’s latest shenanigan involves whether or not Clinton has given all the e-mails which were a part of her correspondence as Secretary of State to the government for permanent archiving. The issue has arisen because Clinton elected to use her own private computer or server to transmit and receive her e-mails.
Clinton has turned over about 55,000 pages of documents to the government. She retained or destroyed 30,000 e-mails which she claimed to be personal in nature. She has stated that the information contained on her computer or server will remain private. Some pundits have suggested that trying to determine whether or not she has actually given the government all relevant documents may be a question that can never be answered.
However, there may be a simple solution which bypasses Clinton’s efforts to control the disclosure of this information.
The National Security Agency records all e-mail traffic. All of Clinton’s NSA-recorded entries which do not involve U.S. governmental entities can be flagged for further inquiry. As to the governmental entries, all previously archived entries involving Clinton’s e-mail address can be recovered within the archived materials compiled from governmental sources who sent or received Clinton’s e-mails.
Clinton has been outmaneuvered because her correspondence can be reconstructed from other sources by electronically scanning for her e-mail address.
