A newly obtained internal message from the Denver-based Platte River Networks firm that serviced the personal email system used by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for official diplomatic business referenced a “Hillary cover up operation work ticket archive cleanup,” the non-profit government watchdog Judicial Watch said Monday.
The email with the cover-up reference is contained in FBI notes on a February 2016 interview of an unidentified Platte River Networks official.
Judicial Watch obtained the notes as part of more than 400 previously unreleased FBI documents a federal district court ordered turned over to the non-profit as a result of its Freedom of Information Act suit.
In the Dec. 11, 2014, email, an unidentified Platte River Network official told another that “I’m kind of freaking about Gresham. Thoughts on what to do with [name redacted].”
The official responded that “Its all part of the Hillary coverup operation. I’ll have to tell you about it at the party.” A smiling emoji was inserted by the responder between the two sentences.
The “Gresham” reference appears to be to the Chicago-based Gresham Partners LLC. It’s not clear what if any connection there is between that firm, which describes itself as “an independent investment and wealth management firm that has been serving select families, family offices and endowments since 1997,” and the “Hillary coverup operation.”
In another of the newly released documents, an unidentified individual working with an Intelligence Community Inspector (ICIG) General inspector told a Department of State official in a June 27, 2015, email that “I have personally reviewed hundreds of documents in the HRC collection. I can now say, without reservation, that there are literally hundreds of classified emails in this collection; maybe more.”
It is not known from the documents how many emails were contained in the reviewed collection in which the classified emails were found by the unidentified individual.
Clinton has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing with the private email system, which included a server located in a bathroom in the New York mansion she shares with former President Bill Clinton.
She turned over to the State Department a year after leaving office an estimated 30,000 emails that her attorney David Kendall and members of her State Department staff claimed dealt with official business.
She claimed another 32,000 emails were personal and were destroyed using a product known as BleachBit, with no independent prior government review.
Former FBI Director James Comey recommended in a controversial nationally televised statement against prosecution of Clinton in July 2016, but that did not prevent crowds of supporters of then-Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump from chanting “Lock Her Up, Lock Her Up” during rallies before and after his election victory.
The Epoch Times reported Feb. 25, 2019, the Justice Department told Comey Clinton had to have intended to compromise classified documents. The law requires only a showing of “gross negligence.”
Judicial Watch said in a news release Monday that the new documents it obtained include several that “show Platte River Networks’ use of BleachBit on the Clinton server. The BleachBit program was downloaded from a vendor called SourceForge at 11:42am on March 31, 2015, according to a computer event log, and over the next half hour, was used to delete the files on Hillary’s server.”
If any of the destroyed emails concerned official U.S. diplomatic business or any other aspect of Clinton’s actions as secretary of state, each of them would represent a potential violation of federal laws and regulations concerning preservation of official documents.
