Colorado Company Visited as Part of FBI Investigation into Hillary Clinton emails
FBI investigation into Democratic presidential front-runner expands its reach
Tasked with digging into the security of Hillary’s home brewed email server, the FBI investigation into presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is expanding it’s reach.
A local CBS News affiliate reports the Denver based Platte River Networks received a visit from the FBI last week regarding former Secretary Clinton’s email.
Platte River Networks handled the Clinton’s email accounts though there’s been no public explanation as to what that entailed.
It’s been confirmed by both the intelligence community and the office of the Inspector General that classified information was transmitted through Hillary Clinton’s private email account. Also true is that Hillary Clinton deleted thousands of emails prior to turning some over to the State Department for record keeping.
Platte River Networks may have copies of emails Hillary Clinton deleted.
According to CBS News Denver:
Sources related to that visit told CBS4 Investigator Rick Sallinger the company has been asked to preserve any information related to the emails involving Bill and Hillary Clinton.
The company’s website lists awards including for being among the best Colorado businesses and places to work. But Metro State University Assistant Professor of Computer Information Systems Dr. Edgar Maldonado says there are questions about what security protocols were in place.
“I would say it’s not the best choice,” Maldonado said.
The FBI would not comment on its contact with the Denver company.
Platte River Networks is not under investigation and the FBI is only in the information gathering stage of their inquest into presidential hopeful, Hillary Clinton.

Did the FBI delay the start of their investigation long enough to allow sHrillary to scorch earth the evidence trail?
Regardless of how dark our opinion of people working for the Federal government (with some justification) is, there are still some fine, professional, and dedicated people working for us.
I hope they’re on this.
Look out, Rags, they’ll be saying you are part of the conspiracy now.
Shuuush. You wanna get my computer loaded with kiddy porn…??? If they think I’ve been made, I’m toast…
FBI: Famous But Incompetent
If Platte River does have backup copies of Clitler’s SoS emails there is very little chance she could weasel out of a perjury conviction. This could send Hillary to the Big House instead of the White House!
Maybe I can be corrected on this (an engineer, not a lawyer) but can’t a prosecutor use the fact that someone destroyed evidence as evidence of guilt during a trial? I.e. direct to the jury that it is okay to believe that the destruction of evidence by the defendant can be seen as evidence of guilt.
Is that right?
I believe they can bring up the fact evidence was destroyed after the proceedings started and let the jury draw its own conclusions. Only in certain circumstances is it criminal – but those laws were updated after Ollie North had most of his records shredded (legal at the time) to require preservation of federal records.
Depends (BIG surprise! It’s about law…!)
In most jurisdictions, it would be considered a sanction, which is very much within the discretionary purview of the judge.
If it is pretty egregious, the sanction can be “the death penalty”, meaning the offending party has its pleadings stricken from the record, including an answer to the suit (this is in civil law). They just get rolled.
It can be limited to money, as in an order to pay all the attorney fees and costs for both sides.
It can also take the form of an instruction from the judge to the jury that they are to presume the missing evidence was before them and what it means to the case.
Judges, pissed off sufficiently, can get pretty creative.
This company and its employees have top secret security clearances to have had this kind of access to Secy State’s emails?
Ah so now we know……..
It takes a national political party to raise a __________ (fill in the blank).
OF COURSE there is incriminating information on the server. Why do you think Hillary decided to use it in the first place?
Surely no one buys the lame excuses she gave, right? It was obvious from the moment the news first broke that she did it to maintain control so she could purge any incriminating evidence.
Getting rid of the evidence is who she is, and what she does.
I love it when a plan comes together.
Ace of Spades has put up the flaming skull:
FBI “takes possession” of hillary’s server, lawyer’s thumb drive.
“Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley says two of the emails, which traversed Clinton’s insecure home email server, were deemed “Top Secret, Sensitive Compartmented Information.” That’s one of the government’s highest classifications.”
That means that not even Bradley Manning, or Wikileaks, or the New York Times, had access to it.
They might be deemed Top Secret by the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community because they referenced some electronic or satellite intelligence.
Even if it’s true that no material passed from or to Hillary while classified, because she knew (or should have known), that her correspondence could be classified at a later date, she knowingly, and in violation of the law, maintained possession of classified material after leaving office. Additionally, she knowingly stored that material on an unsecured server during and after her tenure as SoS.
Any way you slice it, Hillary has either violated federal law, shown utter disregard for national security (and thereby demonstrated her complete lack of fitness for any office of public trust), or both.
