“By July 1993, the Clintons and their associates had established
a pattern of concealment with respect to the Clintons’ involvement
with Whitewater and the Madison S&L. Because of the complexity
of the allegations of misdeeds involving these institutions, documents
and files are critical to any inquiries into the matter. Yet,
at every important turn, crucial files and documents ‘‘disappeared’’
or were withheld from scrutiny whenever questions were raised.…Senate Whitewater report June 13, 1996

More damning evidence against Hillary Clinton to be found?
From the NY Times August 20, 2015.
“A federal judge on Thursday said that Hillary Rodham Clinton did not comply with government policies in her exclusive use of a personal email account while she was secretary of state, challenging her longstanding position that she abided by the rules.
At a hearing for a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the State Department, the judge, Emmet G. Sullivan of Federal District Court for the District of Columbia, said that “we wouldn’t be here today if the employee had followed government policy.”
Judge Sullivan also opened the door for the F.B.I., which is investigating whether there was classified information on Mrs. Clinton’s account, to expand its inquiry to pursue emails that she may have deleted. The judge ordered the State Department to ask the F.B.I. to give it any emails recovered from Mrs. Clinton’s private server that were not already in the State Department’s possession or that may be related to the lawsuit.
The Justice Department, which oversees the F.B.I., has argued that Freedom of Information Act searches do not typically involve a government employee’s personal email account.
Mrs. Clinton has said she gave the State Department more than 30,000 emails related to her work in office. She deleted about the same number of emails that she said were personal. Her lawyer has said the server was then wiped clean. Mrs. Clinton has also said that she had no classified information on her account.
In a statement, a spokesman for Mrs. Clinton defended her use of the account. “Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email account was consistent with the practice of other secretaries of state, and permissible under the department’s policy at the time,” said the spokesman, Brian Fallon.
When Mrs. Clinton became secretary in February 2009, the State Department’s general policy was “that normal day-to-day operations be conducted on an authorized” government computer. Nine months later, federal regulations were toughened to say that government agencies that allow employees to use nongovernment email accounts must “ensure that federal records sent or received on such systems are preserved in the appropriate agency record-keeping system.””
