Techs Were Asked to Doctor Hillary Emails

Blog Post - Techs Were Asked to Doctor Hillary Emails

It's the bombshell that the media has barely acknowledged this week. Evidence has emerged that the day after Hilary Clinton was ordered to turn over work-related emails from her personal server to congress, an attempt was made to alter the emails by hiding or changing the information in them. On 7/24/14, the IT specialist who eventually wiped Hillary's server posted the following in an online help forum:

Hello all- I may be facing a very interesting situation where I need to strip out a VIP's (VERY VIP) email address from a bunch of archived email that I have both in a live Exchange mailbox, as well as a PST file. Basically, they don't want the VIP's email address exposed to anyone, and want to be able to either strip out or replace the email address in the to/from fields in all of the emails we want to send out.

As a PST file or exported MSG files, this could be done though, yes? The issue is that these emails involve the private email address of someone you'd recognize, and we're trying to replace it with a placeholder address as to not expose it...

I have these emails available in a PST file. Can I rewrite them in the PST? I could also export to MSG and do some sort of batch find/replace. Anyone know of tools that might help with this?

 

The Reddit user making these requests is “Stonetear”, which is the account name of Paul Combetta, the tech specialist with Platte River Networks who ultimately deleted Clinton’s emails. After the Reddit messages were discovered this week, Combetta attempted to erase his Reddit history. However screenshots were cached in several locations, including archive.com.

This newly discovered information is now being investigated by several House committees, including one led by Lamar Smith (R-TN), who released the following statement:

 

If true, these details raise new questions as to whether Platte River Networks purposefully defied legal document retention requirements. Further, it is unclear if the Federal Bureau of Investigation was aware of these facts at the time of their investigation,” Smith wrote in a letter sent Wednesday.

Additionally, I am concerned that Mr. Combetta may have made an attempt to delete relevant posts, including the post mentioned above, from his Reddit.com username just hours after reports initially surfaced on September 19, 2016, about his request for assistance on deleting email addresses from archived emails,” Smith wrote.

This raises significant concerns that materials directly related to the Committee’s investigation and responsive to its outstanding requests are being actively destroyed in an attempt to conceal relevant information from coming to light.

 

 

Astonishingly, the Justice Department gave Paul Combetta immunity from prosecution. Despite this, Combetta pleaded the Fifth during his prior appearance before the House Oversight Committee. The fact that he was immune from prosecution but still refused to answer questions suggests he's covering for someone else. Representative Smith has demanded Combetta come before his committee and answer questions, although he would likely end up taking the Fifth again.

Which means, thanks to stonewalling, a less than thorough investigation, the destruction of evidence, and very questionable granting of immunity to key witnesses, we will likely never know the truth behind what now appears to be a very real scandal and coverup. Yet voters can judge for themselves come election day.
