The Hollywood Reporter doubled-down on its full-throated defense of twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton this week, falsely claiming the former Secretary of State never intentionally hid her emails from federal investigators.
In its anti-Trump hit piece titled, “Sean Hannity Can’t Stop Repeating One of Trump’s Biggest Lies,” the industry newspaper suggests conservative assertions that Clinton “acid-washed” her emails has been totally “disproven.”
One problem for the Hollywood Reporter; it’s been proven countless times.
“Speaking to the FBI on May 3, 2016, ‘“[redacted] indicated he believed he had an ‘oh s***’ moment and sometime between March 25-31, 2015 deleted the Clinton archive mailbox from the PRN server and used BleachBit to delete the exported .PST files he had created on the server system containing Clinton’s e-mails,” wrote Politico’s “juiciest bits” from the FBI’s Clinton probe.
The Inspector General’s report -released just days ago- slammed Clinton’s intentional use of the software to conceal her emails from investigators, saying her team “used BleachBit to permanently remove Clinton’s emails from her server. These included emails that had been transferred from a prior server. According to FBI documents, former Secretary Clinton’s attorneys advised Combetta about the congressional preservation order before he made the deletions.”
Sean Hannity spoke with Andrew Ziem -the founder of BleachBit- regarding Hillary’s email scandal, saying she took a “two-pronged approach” to conceal the correspondence.
“Her aides smashed her mobile devices with a hammer because there’s a copy of the emails on the mobile device, then the IT guys ran BleachBit on the server,” said Ziem.

'NOT HELPFUL': Secret Email Shows Strzok ‘WORRIED’ About Hillary Probe
Recently released emails show anti-Trump DOJ official Peter Strzok worried that former President Barack Obama’s public comments would impact the public’s perception of the ongoing Hillary email investigation.
According to Fox News, the communications show Strzok was highly concerned that the President’s statement was “not helpful” and warned the White House “there is a line they need to hold.”
“Below not helpful,” Strzok wrote to top FBI counterintelligence official. “Certainly the WH is going to do whatever it wants, but there is a line they need to hold with regard to the appearance of non-interference.”
The emails echo similar comments made in James Comey’s new tell-all book, where the former FBI chief claims Obama “jeopardized” the Hillary probe by making comments that caused many to question the administration’s role in the investigation.
“Contributing to this problem, regrettably, was President Obama. He had jeopardized the Department of Justice’s credibility in the investigation,” writes Comey.
BIAS ALERT: FBI Agents ‘PRESSURED’ to END Hillary Probe After Trump Nomination
Officials at the Department of Justice forked over hundreds of pages of previously unseen text messages to Congressional investigators over the weekend; revealing new details on how FBI agents were “pressured” to exonerate Hillary Clinton’s private email scandal after Donald Trump secured the GOP nomination in 2016.
New text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and bureau lawyer Lisa Page shed new light on the level of anti-Trump bias and corruption throughout the agency in the run-up to the US presidential election; suggesting the bureau was hoping to conclude Clinton’s probe within minutes of Donald Trump’s victory over GOP opponent Senator Ted Cruz.
“Holy s*** Cruz just dropped out of the race. It’s going to be a Clinton Trump race. Unbelievable,” wrote Page in May of 2016.
“I saw Trump won, figured it would be a bit,” responded Strzok. “Now the pressure really starts to finish MYE.”
The reference to “MYE” refers to ‘Mid-Year Exam,’ the FBI code name for the ongoing investigation of Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information and use of a private email server.
According to CBS News, the conversation was included in Sen. Ron Johnson’s scathing letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, where the Homeland Security Chairman demanded answers over anti-Trump bias at the agency ahead of the 2016 election.
