As the ongoing saga of Hillary’s email scandal trudges along, Trey Gowdy, House Oversight Committee member, claims Hillary used a special tool to wipe clean her home-brewed email server.

No, it wasn’t a very special cloth. (I know, I figured that’s what she used, too).

According to Gowdy, Hillary used BleachBit, a program that deep cleans files, cookies, and servers. From the BleachBit website:

BleachBit quickly frees disk space and tirelessly guards your privacy. Free cache, delete cookies, clear Internet history, shred temporary files, delete logs, and discard junk you didn’t know was there. Designed for Linux and Windows systems, it wipes clean a thousand applications including Firefox, Internet Explorer, Adobe Flash, Google Chrome, Opera, Safari,and more. Beyond simply deleting files, BleachBit includes advanced features such as shredding files to prevent recovery, wiping free disk space to hide traces of files deleted by other applications, and vacuuming Firefox to make it faster. Better than free, BleachBit is open source.

In an interview with Fox New Thursday morning, Gowdy said, “If she considered them to be personal, then she and her lawyers had those emails deleted. They didn’t just push the delete button, they had them deleted so even God couldn’t read them. They were using something called BleachBit. You don’t use BleachBit for yoga emails or bridemaids emails. When you’re using BleachBit, it is something you really do not want the world to see.”

“That’s the interesting thing about credibility and believability, you can’t just keep it in one compartment,” said Gowdy discussing Clinton’s email press conference. “When you are a habitual, serial liar, in this facet of life, it tends to make people not believe you in other facets of life.”

With the Clinton Foundation receiving renewed attention thanks to an Associated Press report, one very crucial question remains unanswered: in Hillary’s email delete-fest, did she consider Foundation emails to be person in nature? After all, she claims that half of all emails sent during her tenure as Secretary of State were personal.
