From day one we have been saying “get the server.” On March 11, 2015, after Hillary’s infamous UN press conference regarding the server, I wrote, Hillary’s consciousness of guilt:
Why volunteer that she deleted personal emails, and drag the red herring across the trail to lead the discussion towards Chelsea, her mother and yoga?
Remember, Hillary said she would not turn over the server because it had personal emails on it, but then inconsistently said the personal emails were not on the server because she chose “not to keep” them.
Hillary gave away the game at that point to me.
Hillary showed a consciousness of guilt and deliberate misdirection.
Get the server.
Now the Feds will.
Hillary Clinton will turn over her private email server and a backup thumb drive to the Justice Department, her spokesman confirmed Tuesday.
The news comes just hours after the Intelligence Community Inspector General told Congress that her email server contained emails that have now been classified “top secret.”
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) released two pages of the memo sent to a handful of members of Congress that confirmed the finding.
“This information revealed by the inspector general makes it even more important that the FBI and the State Department secure these documents,” he said.
“To date, the two agencies most critical to securing this information have failed to assure the American people that they are taking the necessary steps to protect America’s national security interests.”
The server has been wiped clean, according to Hillary’s lawyers. But that may not be the last word on it. The feds are extremely good at overcoming all but the most sophisticated wipes. The inspection also may reveal the timeline when the document destruction took place.
The records that were subpoenaed were electronic. That Clinton’s legal team printed them out does not remove the fact that the electronic records were still subject to the subpoena. Those electronic records would have had metadata, routing, server and other electronic information not visible once printed.
There needs to be a full and serious criminal investigation as to whether Hillary Clinton obstructed justice or committed some other crime when she not only deleted the emails, but wiped the server hard drive clean to prevent recovery of the emails.
Hillary is hiding something. We need to know what.
We need to know if a potential president is a crook.
Get the server, even if she claims it’s wiped clean. It is now evidence of a potential crime.
I ask you, who among us hasn't wiped a server clean after its contents were requested by subpoena? http://t.co/n1zhk1s1Jr

But that’s not all. There apparently was Top Secret information in the emails:
