Reince Priebus responds to news that Hillary Clinton wiped her private home server clean and permanently deleted all emails, barring investigators from learning if she withheld official correspondence from emails House Republicans seek.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus blasted Hillary Clinton on Saturday for wiping her server and permanently deleting all emails.
"Even Nixon didn't destroy the tapes," Priebus said in a statement.
Clinton's lawyer informed the House Select Committee investigating Benghazi on Friday that Clinton no longer had copies of any emails from her four-year tenure as secretary of State, ending in 2013.
Rep. Trey Gowdy, the chairman of the committee, said in a statement Friday that "Clinton unilaterally decided to wipe her server clean and permanently delete all emails from her personal server."
Gowdy, whose committee had subpoenaed the server earlier this month, charged that Clinton apparently decided to delete her emails after Oct. 28, 2014, when the State Department first asked her to turn over public records.
Clinton has turned over roughly 55,000 pages of documents to the State Dept, though Republicans have have seized her admission this month that her aides deleted more than 30,000 "personal" emails.
Clinton's lawyer, David Kendall, reportedly told House investigators that after aides determined which emails were private and which were government-related, an account setting was changed to only save emails sent in the past 60 days
