Uh-Oh! Looks Like Those ‘Missing’ 33,000 Emails Aren’t Lost Afterall
Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, may be counting on the technical lingo of servers, clouds, Bleachbit and email transfer vehicles numbing the voters into simply tuning out the content – at least for the next two weeks until Hillary can be elected and make the entire email mess disappear.
But even after FBI Director James Comey came out and, essentially exonerated Hillary for operating a private email server out of her home to conduct the nation’s diplomatic business alongside her family foundation “pay-to-play” set up, it may be that loyal, lifetime FBI agents won’t let the truth be hidden forever.
Clinton has maintained that she turned over all her emails dealing with official business after deleting 33,000 that she claimed had to do only with personal matters, such as her mother’s funeral plans, daughter Chelsea’s wedding… and “yoga poses.”
And while Comey acquiesced in her claim that the disputed emails were unavailable, having been permanently deleted or “shredded,” FBI notes from the investigation indicate that, like the truth… they may still be “out there.”
No one – apparently not even Director Comey – wants to find them.
Clinton retained Platte River Networks (PRN), a Denver-based company that maintained her secret server, to “disappear” the emails subpoenaed by Congress, but PRN exec Paul Combetta told the FBI that not all of the emails were destroyed via the “bleachbit” technique that shreds digital material.
Combetta revealed that he “created a ‘vehicle’ to transfer email files from the live mailboxes of [Clinton Executive Services Corp.] email accounts [and] then later used BleachBit software to shred the ‘vehicle,’ but the email content still existed in the live email accounts.”
If the email content still exists even after the transfer – where is it and why didn’t Comey find it.
In fact, only the emails transferred from the server to Clinton aides for sorting in compliance with the Congressional subpoena were shredded.
In short – Clinton’s archived mailboxes are probably still in the PRN system.
PRN has been under an order by the FBI to preserve not only all Clinton emails, but “any other evidence” that may be relevant.
The FBI notes also reveal that Combetta transferred “all of the Clinton email content to a personal Google email address he created,” which means they may still be available on a Google server.
But the FBI didn’t subpoena Google, just like it didn’t follow the other leads.
Maybe Comey really didn’t want to find out where those leads ended up.
