The FBI latest document dump shows:
- The FBI acquired TWO separate email servers and mobile devices that Hillary used.
- The FBI determined 81 email chains containing classified information, ranging from CONFIDENTIAL to TOP SECRET/SPECIAL ACCESS PROGRAM were transmitted on Clinton’s TWO UNCLASSIFIED email server systems. Of those 81 emails chains, 68 remain classified.
- The FBI did not find evidence that Clinton’s server had been compromised. However, the FBI was unable to acquire all of the computer components and mobile devices used by Clinton, so they couldn’t conclusively determine whether the classified information on her system was compromised.
- On page 4, the FBI notes that Pagliano, whom Clinton had set up the second email server in home, reported that he only transferred clintonemail.com email accounts for Huma Abedin and BLANK from the old system to the new system. (The old system Bill Clinton had set up for his foundation work).
Okay, that’s four pages reviewed in this post. So, the FBI could did not find evidence her server was hacked. The FBI does NOT have all her mobile devices and some computer components to analyze. Sophisticated hackers can penetrate systems and leave NO evidence. Evidence of penetration conclusively confirms penetration of a system, absence of evidence does NOT prove conclusively the system was NOT penetrated. From an intelligence perspective, once the intelligence is put in insecure environments, you operate from the assumption it is compromised. From a legal perspective you must prove that the intelligence was compromised. Two different metrics and as President, the FIRST one holds true – she showed she is UNFIT to be trusted with highly sensitive information, because she knowingly put highly sensitive information at risk.
Bill and Hillary have used the “over-use of classifying information” canard, as if the classified emails on her server are just a clerical error, to downplay the seriousness of the classified information on Hillary’s server. Yet, 68 out of 81 emails chains STILL remain classified.
The first server was set-up by Bill Clinton’s aide, Justin Cooper around 2007. Once Hillary was using that server for her State Dept email, there were problems. Around January 2009 the decision was made to upgrade the server. Huma Abedin recommended they hire Bryan Pagliano to set up a new server. Abedin contacted Cooper and Pagliano acquired equipment from Hillary’s presidential campaign to build the new server system.
Pagliano stated that he transferred email from the old system to the new system and there shouldn’t be ANY email content left on the old server. Pagliano stated to the FBI that he ONLY transferred clintonemail.com email accounts for Huma Abedin and BLANK and that he was unaware of and did not transfer any email account for Hillary. So, who is BLANK. Since Pagliano ONLY transferred clintonemail.com email accounts for Huma Abedin and BLANK and this was Bill Clinton’s PERSONAL email server for foundation business, who could BLANK be….. Now, Clinton’s IT guy, Justin Cooper, recalls the one email account as being Hillary’s email account, not Huma’s, which again brings us back to whose email account was the only other email account on Bill Clinton’s personal server…
My guess is BLANK is Bill Clinton, who had this email server set up in his home to do his foundation work. His aides and mouthpieces keep saying Bill Clinton does not use email. I am sure Bill Clinton’s aides conducted foundation business via email too and likely used other public email server systems. They could have set that server up ANYWHERE, like in the NYC Clinton office, but Bill Clinton wanted it in his home, because he wanted his own private server, for his own use. I suspect he felt it was physically safer in his home, protected by Secret Service 24/7. Hillary has used that line too about the server being protected by Secret Service. Both Clintons seem to be clueless on cyber-security though…
