ABC News reporting that Hillary Clinton ordered a book showing how to permanently delete emails

The last batch of Hillary Clinton emails released by the State Department included one from Clinton asking to borrow a book called “Send: Why People Email So Badly and How to Do It Better,” by David Shipley and Will Schwalbe. 
Clinton has not said why she requested the book, but it includes some advice that is particularly interesting in light of the controversy over her unconventional email arrangement at the State Department and her decision to delete tens of thousands of emails she deemed to be purely personal. 
The copy that ABC downloaded for $9.99 had some interesting revelations.
Take, for example, Chapter Six: “The Email That Can Land You In Jail.” The chapter includes a section entitled “How to Delete Something So It Stays Deleted.”
“Some people are hoarders, some are checkers,” the authors write. “The main thing to consider is that once you do decide to delete, it’s like taking the garbage from your kitchen and putting it in your hallway. It’s still there. 
The chapter advised that to truly delete emails may require a special rewriting program “to make sure that it’s not just elsewhere on the drive but has in fact been written over sixteen or twenty times and rendered undefinable.” 
But Shipley and Schwalbe warn that deleting emails could lead to future legal troubles.
On page 215, the authors list “Stupid (and Real) Email Phrases That Wound Up in Court.” Number one on the list? “DELETE THIS EMAIL!’ Later, on page 226, the writers warn, “If you’re issued a subpoena, your deletion binge will only make you look guilty.”
I bolded the next from ABC, but wow.

Beyond the Email Book, does Mrs. Clinton also like Mark Steyn's new book?  We should ask her!

Instapundit: Lanny Davis saying all is well with Team Hillary (he might as well be chain smoking like those parodies of people getting grilled by Sixty Minutes) and most want a criminal probe of Hillary Clinton, Tan, Rested, Ready, the Iceman Cometh, Denial is not just a river in Egypt
As for Smitty's concerns: Drip, Drip, Drip..
Rush Limbaugh: Hillary might be in real trouble, panic city for the democrats, and Hillary threatens Obama's legacy
Hot Air: Hillary ordered book on how to delete emails, NBC News is not buying Hillary's email story, and Team Hillary Lawyers Up
RRG: Even MSNBC is not too happy about Hillary
AoSHQ: The emails found on Hillary's server were a very big deal and this sort of breach would typically result in severe sanctions and criminal liability for anyone else and Hillary and her staff may have illegally stripped classified markers from emails
Legal Insurrection: Hillary intentionally threw people off the email trail?  
Huma in the Cross Hairs (orange is the new black, and I am sure she can pull off that look)

Huma rude to Secret Service too?  "Do you know who I am?"

Rule 5 and FMJRA

Lem's Levity: Hillary Book Club
Hot Air: Biden or Gore?

  1. You would have to do a DOD wipe on it and, even then, packets will still be floating around cyberspace.

    She's screwed.

    And she didn't even get a kiss.
