Can #Facebook legally delete relevant documents and emails while under FTC investigation? #DeleteFacebook

Saw this quote in the NY Times article:

Many [Facebook employees] are also concerned over what might leak next and are deleting old comments or messages that might come across as controversial or newsworthy, they said.

Is that legal? I have worked at a company that was under investigation for a time and we had strict document and email retention policies in effect for many months. These actions by employees could be a further black eye on SpyBook.
