While speculation is running wild and logic has given way to lunacy on the part of the press and the #Never Trump minions I feel I can afford to indulge in some of my own wild speculation.
John Hinderaker at Powerline blog did an insightful calculation:
Time out. Weiner’s laptop contains 650,000 emails? If he sent or received 200 emails a day, 365 days a year–a considerable number!–it would take 3,250 days, or just about nine years, to accumulate 650,000 on the laptop’s hard drive. It is not clear–to me, anyway–what would cause such a large number of emails to reside on the laptop, absent some sort of bulk downloads.
Hinderaker makes the point that people in the Abedin-Weiner income strata do not share the same laptop. I'll give him that. Even the ultra plebeian Hoosierman domicile can boast of 7 WIFI devices, two PC's, two phones, two Kindles and a Samsung tablet. In general we do not use one another's devices simply because the settings are customized to our personal preferences.
Hillary served as Secretary of State from the beginning of the Obama administration in early 2009 until February of 2013 or roughly 4 years. So 650,000 / (365 x 4) equals 445 emails per day, still a prodigious number for clintonemail.com and more than the ever changing number that was supposedly turned over to the State Department sans the 33,000 personal missives germane to weddings and yoga.
One problem that no one in the media has addressed is how Hillary and her cronies kept up with correspondence when it arrived through both clintonmail.com and the State Department's secure server. Surely there were times when the team wanted to compare opinion and data from legitimate diplomatic sources to the rantings of the prolific Sydney Blumenthal. I have no idea of how many emails pass through State's secure server and that number is probably classified but were at least some of the State Department secure emails auto synced to the Chappaqua server? That would take some smarts and a security clearance but Bryan Pagliano had both. Also it's possible that Dame Hillary could access State's email server from home and she may have had a legitimate email account if for no other reason than appearance. Try this. Set up a Richard Windsor account and State's FOIA compliance detail can find no emails to Hillary on any given subject.
So when it came time to shut down the Chappaqua server were there no emails worth keeping? Well yes, So load them on a thumb drive and move them to the last place the feds would ever look. Hide them on the laptop of the unsuspecting Weiner perv in a folder labeled Life Insurance just down from the folder labeled Dick Pics. Who would ever look there?
