Hillary Clinton received terrible news last week on two fronts regarding her email scandal.
In one case, the House Oversight Committee ordered Reddit to preserve posts that show Hillary’s IT guy asking for help deleting her emails.
In a bombshell report broken by the Political Insider earlier this week, Paul Combetta, the IT specialist who helped Hillary Clinton wipe her server clean of evidence requested from federal authorities, took to Reddit seeking advice on how to commit the crime.
Now, the Republican House Oversight Committee is investigating …
Via the Daily Caller:
The House Oversight Committee has ordered the website Reddit to preserve copies of posts purportedly published by the computer technician who appears to have asked for advice for how to strip Hillary Clinton’s email address from her emails.
Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz, the chairman of the Oversight Committee, told The Hill that the order “has the weight of law, you can’t destroy things and hope things magically get erased.”
The posts in question appear to have been made by Paul Combetta, a technician at Platte River Networks, a Denver-based computer firm that Clinton hired in 2013 to manage her private server. They were deleted on Monday, just after Internet sleuths discovered them and circulated them across the Web.
Video of Combetta actually deleting his messages in real time can be seen here.
In one posting, Combetta can be seen telling others “I need to strip out a VIP’s (VERY VIP) email address from a bunch of archived emails,” an action which one colleague warned “could result in major legal issues.”
If the media in America weren’t so corrupt, this story would be front page news for weeks. Instead, it’s gone largely unnoticed.
In another major news story today, a federal judge has ordered the State Department to turn over documents involving required security training by Clinton and her top aides, and he’s demanded they do so within five days.
Via the Daily Caller:
A frustrated federal judge ordered the State Department to begin producing within five days hundreds of documents on whether required or recommended security training, briefings or courses were completed by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her top aides.
Judge Richard Leon ruled Tuesday in favor of The Daily Caller News Foundation by rejecting the State Department’s motion to dismiss TheDCNF’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit concerning production of the documents originally sought under the Freedom of Information Act.
Thus far, the State Department has been unable and unwilling to produce the security training documents from Clinton and her aides, which show they were aware of the proper methods for handling classified materials and the proper methods for conducting secure communications.
Clearly the judge is frustrated with the administration-wide coordinated effort to protect Clinton from investigation for her actions.
