Hillary’s 33,000 emails might not be ‘missing’ after all

For months now, we’ve been told that Hillary Clinton’s 33,000 missing emails were permanently erased and destroyed beyond recovery. But newly released FBI notes strongly suggest they still exist in several locations — and they could be recovered, if only someone would impanel a grand jury and seize them.

In a May interview with FBI agents, an executive with the Denver contractor that maintained Clinton’s private server revealed that an underling didn’t bleach-clean all her subpoenaed emails, just ones he stored in a data file he used to transfer the emails from the server to Clinton’s aides, who in turn sorted them for delivery to Congress.

The Platte River Networks executive, whose name was redacted from the interview report, said PRN tech Paul Combetta “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.”

Unless one of Clinton’s aides had the capability to log in to the PRN server as an administrator and remove a mailbox, her archived mailboxes more than likely still reside somewhere in that system. And they may also materialize on an internal “shared drive” that PRN created to control access to the Clinton email accounts among PRN employees. PRN has been under FBI order to preserve all emails and other evidence since the start of its investigation last year.

Clinton’s missing “personal” emails may also be captured on a Google server. According to FBI notes, Combetta “transferred all of the Clinton email content to a personal Google email address he created.” Only the FBI never subpoenaed Google to find out.

The FBI documents also reveal that Hillary’s server was mirrored on a cloud server in Pennsylvania maintained by Datto Inc., a tech firm that performs cloud-to-cloud data protection.

When PRN contracted with Datto, it requested that Hillary’s server be backed up locally and privately. But the techs forgot to order the private node, and they sent the server backup data “remotely to Datto’s secure cloud and not to a local private node.” The FBI never subpoenaed Datto’s server, either.

Then there’s the laptop Combetta loaded with the Clinton email archive and allegedly shipped back to a Clinton aide in Washington, who claims it got “lost” in the mail. Not so fast: The latest FBI document dump includes a series of interviews with an unidentified former “special assistant” to Clinton at the State Department who said the elusive Apple MacBook laptop was actually “shipped to the Clinton Foundation in New York City.”

But in a June follow-up interview, FBI agents inexplicably left it up to this critical witness to “inquire about the shipment” with the foundation’s mailroom manager, who works in Rockefeller Center. The FBI still does not have the laptop in its possession.

It turns out that investigators also know the whereabouts of the original Apple server Clinton used in her first two months in office. Recovering that equipment is critical because it contains a mass of unseen emails from Jan. 21, 2009, to March 18, 2009 — a critical period in Clinton’s tenure at State. Witnesses say the equipment was not discarded, as first believed, but “repurposed” as a “work station” used by staff in Clinton’s Chappaqua residence.

Yet the FBI says it “was unable to obtain the original Apple server for a forensic review.” Instead of seizing it, the agency has taken Clinton’s aides’ and lawyers’ word that the server’s bereft of relevant emails. In fact, the agency confesses on Page 27 of its 47-page investigative case summary that it failed to recover other equipment and data as well: “The FBI’s inability to recover all server equipment and the lack of complete server log data for the relevant time period limited the FBI’s forensic analysis of the server systems. As a result, FBI cyber analysis relied, in large part, on witness statements.”

Congressional investigators say FBI Director James Comey in his year-long “investigation” didn’t even bother to send agents to search Clinton’s homes in Chappaqua or Washington, DC. Nor did he dispatch them to the offices of the Clinton Foundation or Clinton Executive Services Corp. in New York City.

“The Clinton residences and other locations should have been treated like any other criminal investigation — with federal grand jury subpoenas or search warrants issued by judges and served in the middle of the night,” said veteran FBI special agent Michael M. Biasello, who worked criminal cases out of New York and other field offices for 27 years.

“Never — I repeat, never — in my career have I or any FBI agent known to me investigated a criminal case without the use of a federal grand jury, grand jury subpoenas or search warrants,” he said. “It’s disgraceful they weren’t used in this case.”

The most damning evidence against Clinton may never have been actually destroyed. It was simply left untouched by the FBI.

Honestly, I was skeptical of the facts in Mr. Sperry’s article so I did a little research on him. His career includes being an investigative journalist and I read a couple of other (earlier) articles on this Comey/email issue and now I believe him. He still may be wrong and I may be wrong in trusting his facts, but if the facts presented in this article are true, the people “investigating” Hillary’s emails sound more like the Keystone Kops (for you youngsters, they were silent-era incompetent policemen) than the vaunted Federal Bureau of Investigation. In fact, the word “incompetence” doesn’t do their activities justice, perhaps “dumbass” might describe their “investigation” better.

There is no doubt that the “fix” was in and that the competent agents at the FBI were stymied at every turn by orders from “above.” It’s pretty obvious that Hillary was insulated from any real jeopardy by Loretta Lynch and/or Barack Obama and Comey accepted that and went along.

When it finally hits the fan, the cover-up is always much more serious than the initial crime. It is beginning to look like the cover-up is beginning to unravel. It’s about time, it couldn’t happen to a more deserving shrew.

  1. >>”FBI cyber analysis relied, in large part, on witness statements.”

    You mean the liars in the Clinton circle and their paid accomplices? Gee that’s comforting.

    Even if they were to go after the emails, which I seriously doubt they have the appetite to do, they’ve already let her off the hook for lying, for deleting evidence and for having classified info on an unsecured device. Not sure how this would change anything.


    • If President Trump doesn’t lower the boom on Hillary, that will be his first mistake. I really hope that he does support full criminal prosecution for her and her cronies – he would find a lot of support for that.


  2. So Platte, Google, Datto and a number of others all have copies of her emails, but the FBI doesn’t. There was never a search warrant, a subpoena or a grand jury. On top of that, the FBI took their word for it that everything had been turned over to them – that’s the big kicker for me. With her history of lying, why would anyone take her at her word?? The stupidity of that is stratospheric as our old friend Grouchy used to say.

    This just showcases the special treatment given her. Had this been any of us just John Q Citizens, they would have ripped our houses apart digging for evidence and left the mess & destruction for us to clean up.


    • That witch has been getting this kind of favorable, look-the-other-way, treatment for decades, the Karma is long since overdue for her and it’s time that she be made to pay for her deeds. She really does belong in prison.


  3. Perhaps we’ll finally, eventually, find out just WHAT she was covering up with her destruction of the emails. THAT is the big question in my mind.
    But I have my doubts we will ever know.
    Lead investigator at the FBI on the latest emails on Huma’s device is Pedesto’s old friend.


    • That’s one of the benefits that I hope will stem from Trump’s election. Can you imagine if the public were finally made aware of all of the democrats and the Clinton Crime Family’s illegal acts? It would taint the democrats and the Clintons for years to come and force the dems to clean up their act – at least a little.
