Second IT company to turn over Hillary Clinton email data, employees were worried about cover up

October 7, 2015

  According to this story it turns out that Hillary Clinton hired another IT firm, Datto Inc., to back up her emails on the “cloud,” and this company has agreed to turn over the data they still have. Here is more: 

Hillary Clinton hired a Connecticut company to back up her emails on a “cloud” storage system, and her lawyers have agreed to turn whatever it contains over to the FBI, a personal familiar with the situation said Tuesday.

Datto Inc., based in Norwalk, Conn., became the second data storage firm to become entangled in the inquiry into Clinton’s unusual email arrangement, which has sparked a furor that has dogged her campaign. In August, Clinton and the firm that had managed her server since June 2013, Colorado-based Platte River Networks, agreed to surrender it for examination by the FBI.

On Friday, Clinton’s attorney, David Kendall, and Platte River agreed to allow Datto to turn over the data from the backup server to the FBI, said the person familiar with Datto’s storage, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.

Datto said in a statement that “with the consent of our client and their end user, and consistent with our policies regarding data privacy, Datto is working with the FBI to provide data in conjunction with its investigation.”

  Why did it take so long for Datto to turn this information over to the FBI?

The above-linked article goes on to say that it is unclear if any new emails will be found on this backup server and it looks as if something a little fishy was going on–to the point where one Datto employee started working to protect the firm from some “shady shit.”

The source said, however, that Platte River had set up a 60-day retention policy for the backup server, meaning that any emails to which incremental changes were made at least 60 days prior would be deleted and “gone forever.” While the server wouldn’t have been “wiped clean,” the source said, any underlying data likely would have been written over and would be difficult to recover.

His letter also cited internal emails recounting requests in late 2014 and early 2015 from Clinton representatives for Colorado-based Platte River Networks, the firm managing Clinton’s primary server, to direct Datto to reduce the amount of her emails it was backing up. These communications led a Platte River employee to air suspicions that “this whole thing really is covering up some shaddy (sic) shit,” according to an excerpt of an email cited by Johnson.
  What would that be? Here are more of the details:

Several weeks ago, Platte River employees discovered that her private server was syncing with an offsite Datto server, he said.

When Datto acknowledged that was the case, a Platte River employee replied in an email: “This is a problem.”

Johnson said that “Datto apparently possessed a backup of the server’s contents since June 2013.”

Upon that discovery, Platte River “directed Datto to not delete the saved data and worked with Datto to find a way to move the saved information . . . back to Secretary Clinton’s private server.”

The letter also noted that Platte River employees were directed to reduce the amount of email data being stored with each backup. Late this summer, Johnson wrote, a Platte River employee took note of this change and inquired whether the company could search its archives for an email from Clinton Executive Service Corp. directing such a reduction in October or November 2014 and then again around February, advising Platte River to save only emails sent during the most recent 30 days.

Those reductions would have occurred after the State Department requested that Clinton turn over her emails.

  Reduce the amount of saved emails and move some of the information BACK to Hillary Clinton’s homebrew server? That sounds fishy indeed and one employee went so far as to try to protect Datto when he became concerned about what he was seeing:

It was here that a Platte River employee voiced suspicions about a cover-up and sought to protect the company. “If we have it in writing that they told us to cut the backups,” the employee wrote, “and that we can go public with our statement saying we have had backups since day one, then we were told to trim to 30 days, it would make us look a WHOLE LOT better,” according to the email cited by Johnson.

Move along, nothing to see here…Hillary Clinton has been totally forthcoming, just ask her.

    Big grin here! I think I am going a bit off the reservation but I am watching MSNBC in the morning and it is a hoot as they try and roll with all of this. Great post of putting together the action.

      It is getting fun watching them try to defend her, isn’t it?! And thanks for the compliment.

    This is getting “complicated”, isn’t it? I wonder how she/they can explain all of it away? At some point she is going to blow up, I only hope I see it happen!

    Just read this…

    The Denver-based IT company hired by Hillary Clinton to manage her private email network is turning over a second device to the FBI this week, a company spokesman tells The Daily Caller.

    Platte River Networks has already given the FBI the server Clinton maintained as secretary of state. Now, the small IT firm will hand over a separate device manufactured by a Connecticut-based company called Datto Inc.

    “The data device is a simple device that sat next to the server,” Platte River spokesman Andy Boian told TheDC in a phone interview.

    Platte River, which was contracted to work on Clinton’s email account in May 2013 and hired Datto shortly after, used a Datto SIRIS S2000 to provide a cloud-based virtual backup of Clinton’s physical server, which it housed in a New Jersey data center.

      P.S. Forgot to put in the point of my comment, lol. Which is…

      I guess the Daily Caller’s ‘exclusive’ wasn’t really ‘exclusive.’ Hahahahahahaha. 🙂

        It must be wonderful to be someone that nothing can be done to, you know? What the hell will it take to bust this woman? Does money buy this kind of silence? Doesn’t it make you wonder how she can sleep at night with all the lies and evil she done in her life?

        Lou, maybe the fact that she has had immunity in the press for so long it will be her undoing because she felt she could get away with anything and pushed it too far…at least that is what I am hoping for.

      I have to admit that I did first read this story at the Daily Caller but traced it back to its original source so they did beat me to it.

        The Daily Caller article is dated today, the date on your source story was yesterday. I was being critical of the Daily Caller for claiming an ‘exclusive’ when someone else wrote about this yesterday. 🙂

        Ah, I thought you were trying to give me credit for beating The Daily Caller’s “exclusive” when I actually read it there first. I didn’t realize the original source was a day earlier. Apparently The Daily Caller was click baiting with the title, and it would not be the first time.

        LOL! I have been burned by The Daily Caller before so I always seek their original source instead of linking directly to that “me too-er.”

    Why does this keep coming up? She will never be held accountable for anything ever, so why must we keep having this ram rodded down our throats?

      You are probably right but until she is elected President I will do whatever I can to bring her down, even if it is futile!

    OT, but interesting facts you might not know:
    Very Important to Know!

    Just thought you’d like to know.
    As a brief reminder for those who forgot or for many that didn’t know,
    here is what happened, quietly, on January 1, 2015:
    · Medicare tax went from 1.45% to 2.35%
    · Top Income Tax bracket went from 35% to 39.6%
    · Top Income Payroll tax went from 37.4% to 52.2%
    · Capital Gains tax went from 15% to 28%
    · Dividend tax went from 15% to 39.6%
    · Estate tax went from 0% to 55%
    · A 3.5% Real Estate transaction tax was added.

    Remember these facts:

    · These taxes were all passed solely with Democrat votes.
    · Not a single Republican voted for these new taxes.
    · These taxes were all passed in the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare.
    · If you think that it is important that everyone in the U.S. should know this,
    · and there are millions who do not, then pass it on.
