VIDEO: Hillary Clinton’s emails and computer data erased before handed to FBI

Hillary Clinton’s personal lawyer has told the Senate Committee that emails and all other data stored on the Democratic Presidential hopefuls private server were erased before it was turned over to the U.S. government authorities.

In a letter sent last week to Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate homeland security committee, attorney David Kendall said the server was transferred to the FBI on August 12th by Platte River Networks.

In exchanges with reporters earlier this week, Clinton said that she did not know whether the data on her computer had been erased.
