So, Hillary turns over an empty email server. What a shock, right? That, alone, should be obstruction of justice, which carries a sentence of 20 years. In fact, she should receive the same charge, conviction, and sentence for each and every email that is known to be missing, somewhere north of 30,000. That would be 600,000 years behind bars for Hitlery, but since she has been such a wonderful person and model citizen her entire life, let’s be exceedingly generous and reduce her sentence by 99%, which would give her only 6,000 years in jail. With good behavior, she could be back on the street by the time she is 3,000. And people say Americans aren’t generous!
For those worrying about no charges for Hillary yet, there are a couple of reasons why, chief among them that Congress has no prosecutorial power. Gowdy would have to refer any charges to DOJ. Right! Loretta Lynch, an Obama sycophant, is going to prosecute Hillary.
The other reason this is dragging on so long, and this is my opinion, is that Gowdy is trying to drag out the investigation. If he refers charges against Hillary now, DOJ will let her go or Obama will pardon her. If Trey can make the investigation drag on, not referring charges until after Obama has left office, and (hopefully) a Republican administration is in place, which could include Attorney General Trey Gowdy, then Hillary Clinton’s goose is cooked! There will be no one around who can pardon her or protect her.

“Whoever knowingly alters, destroys, mutilates, conceals, covers up, falsifies, or makes a false entry in any record, document, or tangible object with the intent to impede, obstruct, or influence the investigation or proper administration of any matter within the jurisdiction of any department or agency of the United States or any case filed under title 11, or in relation to or contemplation of any such matter or case, shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.”

WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton has complied with the Justice Department requests for her server — by turning over a hunk of junk.
The much-sought-after server “was blank,” said Barbara Wells, a lawyer representing the Denver-based computer firm Platte River Networks, who managed the server for Clinton.
“The information had been migrated over to a different server for purposes of transition,” Wells told the Washington Post. “To my knowledge the data on the old server is not available now on any servers or devices in Platte River Network’s control.”
The statement jibes with what outside computer experts told The Post — that by deleting content, Clinton has likely thwarted investigators who are trying to recover her records.
“We now know that we didn’t get all the relevant documents from that server and the American people are entitled to them,” said Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.), a member of the House Benghazi committee.
The Justice Department is investigating whether classified information passed through the server or was improperly stored.
Clinton says no emails were marked classified at the time, but some may have been upgraded since.
She turned over 55,000 pages of emails to the State Department she printed from the server and announced earlier this year that the rest had been erased.
Missing emails have been identified by the House Benghazi committee and now an independent inspector general says at least two of those emails were “top-secret.”
