Their arrogance knows no bounds.
Attorneys representing Cheryl Mills, who served as Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff while Clinton was secretary of state, have told the State Department they’ve instructed their client to delete her email correspondence.
Clinton, top aide Human Abedin, and Mills were ordered on July 31 by federal Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, to confirm, under penalty of perjury, that they’ve produced all government records in their possession, Judicial Watch reports.
They also were instructed to return any other government records immediately, and to explain their use of Clinton’s private email server to conduct government business.
But it appears that Mills intends to delete emails that she was ordered to turn over.
“Ms. Mills does not believe that she has paper copies of potential records in her possession,” her attorneys wrote. “Following our production on August 10, 2015 [of the defense counsel’s version of the electronic records], we have instructed her to delete any and all electronic records in her possession.”
No one is cooperating with Sullivan’s request, and the State Department is not being very helpful, according to New York Observer reporter Sydney Powell.
“It has not produced its correspondence with Mrs. Clinton, and it is now clear that Mrs. Clinton, Ms. Abedin and Ms. Mills plan to thumb their noses at the Judge and the State Department,” Powell wrote.
As for deleting the emails, it remains to be seen whether the court will intervene in time.
“Judicial Watch has made an emergency filing in Judge Sullivan’s court to stop the further destruction of evidence of what may very well be assorted criminal conduct and violations of numerous federal laws,” Powell said.
