Years ago, I fired a secretary and refused to allow her to remove her personal information/e-mails from my company computer. She threatened to sue me.  Really? Anything that is on a company computer belongs to the company.

Hilliary decided to pay $160K to set up her own server, not just a personal e-mail, so that her crooked life could remain a secret.  When it was subpoenaed, she decided to use bleach bit and make it all disappear...and some are worried about Trumps ego?

I should think there would be ramifications... this situation with Hilary only points out how there are two sets of laws in this country.

The precedent has already been set --- you simply wipe everything clean, and when asked why, you say "I can't recall..."

 

Authorities will say "ya know, you shouldn't have done that, but you don't really deserve any punishment".  I'm sure that's how it would work for all of us.

IF that request was for "ALL" then it's time to call my attorney. No fishing allowed.

Everything you do leading up to a subpoena is important & everything you do after is equally as well. Burning or shredding docs makes you guilty of only that. Turning over everything gives access to the smoking gun. The fifth amendment, which gives you a right to not incriminate yourself is relevant but suspect if you are running for the President of the Unite States
