Cover-Up Smoking Guns on Clinton Emails
Cover-Up Smoking Guns on Clinton Emails from Judicial Watch
Judicial Watch Uncovers ‘Cover-Up’ Discussions in Clinton Email Documents
Judicial Watch’s hard-fought litigation again struck pay dirt with new smoking gun evidence of a literal “cover-up” tied to the illicit Hillary Clinton email system.
This week, we made public 422 pages of FBI documents showing evidence of “cover-up” discussions related to the Clinton email system within Platte River Networks, one of the vendors who managed the infamous Clinton email system.
The documents also show Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) Charles McCullough forwarding “concerns” about classified information in Clinton’s emails. These documents also contain Clinton’s 2009 classified information Non-Disclosure Agreement bearing her signature.
Our October 2016 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:16-cv-02046)) forced the release of the new FBI documents. We sued after the Justice Department failed to comply with our July 7, 2016, FOIA request for a key group of FBI investigative files on the Clinton email issue.
Here is a sampling of what we have discovered.
FBI notes of an interview with an unidentified Platte River Networks official in February 2016 (almost a year after the Clinton email network was first revealed) show that Platte River “gave someone access to live HRC archive mailbox at some point.” The same notes show that an email from December 11, 2014, exists that reads “Hillary cover up operation work ticket archive cleanup.” The interviewee said that the “cover up operation” email “probably related to change to 60 day [sic] email retention policy/backup.” The subject indicated that he didn’t “recall the prior policy.” The notes also indicated, “[Redacted] advised [redacted] not to answer questions related to conv [conversation] w/DK [David Kendall] document 49 – based on 5th amendment.”
The subject said that “everyone @ PRN has access to client portal.”
A December 11, 2014, Platte River Networks email between redacted parties says: “Its [sic] all part of the Hillary coverup operation <smile> I’ll have to tell you about it at the party”
