Clinton Server Contractors Discuss 'Hillary Cover-Up Operation,' New Emails Show
Newly uncovered internal message from the Denver-based Platte River Networks firm
A newly uncovered internal email thread, from the firm that serviced Hillary Clinton's personal server, shows a conversation between two contractors in which they discussed a "Hillary coverup operation."
The internal message from the Denver-based Platte River Networks firm was obtained by the political watchdog group Judicial Watch and shows the unidentified contractors discussing an "archive cleanup."
The email that makes reference to the "cover-up" is included in FBI notes from a February 2016 interview of an unidentified Platte River Networks official.
Tom Fitton's Judicial Watch obtained the notes following a lawsuit in which the organization managed to retrieve more than 400 previously unreleased FBI documents.
The group filed a Freedom of Information Act suit, which resulted in a federal district court ordering the files to be turned over to the non-profit.
In the email dated Dec. 11, 2014, one unidentified Platte River Network official revealed to another that “I’m kind of freaking about Gresham. Thoughts on what to do with [name redacted].”
The official replied saying 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 between the two sentencesby the responder.
According to the Epoch Times, 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.
A year after leaving office, she turned over to the State Department 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 the 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 Mueller Witch Hunt is a total disgrace. They are looking at supposedly stolen Crooked Hillary Clinton Emails (even though they don’t want to look at the DNC Server), but have no interest in the Emails that Hillary DELETED & acid washed AFTER getting a Congressional Subpoena!— Donald J.

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 11:42 am 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 the preservation of official documents.
Bryan Pagliano, a Clinton political appointee, had responsibility for maintaining the private Clinton email system and was paid more than $40,000 by the private Clinton Executive Service Corporation, according to the documents obtained by Judicial Watch.
Pagliano is also found in the newly released documents telling a senior Clinton aide on multiple occasions that he is having to deal with a host of problems with the email system, including “virus investigation and cleanup;” “clean up virus from bb [BlackBerry] profile;” and multiple “brute force attacks” against Hillary Clinton’s server, requiring him to “reset password.”
If Roger Stone was indicted for lying to Congress, what about the lying done by Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Lisa Page & lover, Baker and soooo many others? What about Hillary to FBI and her 33,000 deleted Emails? What about Lisa & Peter’s deleted texts & Wiener’s laptop? Much more!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 26, 2019
Critics have long claimed that Clinton’s private email system was vulnerable to being compromised by foreign governments, especially those of Russia and China, which operate extremely large and sophisticated digital hacking operations that target the U.S. government agencies and officials, prominent individuals in the political campaign world, and big corporations.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told The Epoch Times late April 8 he wonders “how many smoking guns is it going to take” before a credible and comprehensive investigation is completed.
“When is the Justice Department going to get its act together and seriously evaluate the evidence against Hillary Clinton,” Fitton said.
“The evidence is sitting there, the question is whether the Justice Department is ever going to act.”
