Unbeknownst to Clinton, IT firm had emails stored on cloud; now in FBI’s hand

WASHINGTON – A Connecticut company, which backed up Hillary Clinton‘s emails at the request of a Colorado firm, apparently surprised her aides by storing the emails on a “cloud” storage system designed to optimize data recovery.

The firm, Datto Inc., said Wednesday that it turned over the contents of its storage to the FBI on Tuesday.

A Republican Senate committee chairman, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, also has asked the firm to provide the committee copies of any data from Clinton’s account still in its possession.

    I can recommend a top of the line criminal defense lawyer to Hillary if she wants one.

    I thought it was iffy at best that Hilary would face any serious legal issues because of this or anything else so far but now? If this is her private servers contents in its entirety then there will be proof of high treason in there.

    I worked in this field for 22 years, serious lapses in communications security are not forgiven, she will be charged and, if found guilty, going to prison.

      You have more faith in our government than I do. I hope you are correct.

      • Blacksmith

        I am with you on this. I pray we are wrong.

        Think “what would Obama do”. There’s a serious hate on between the Obamas and the Clintons.

  • I knew there was a copy somewhere.

    May this lying bitch squirm like a worm on a hook.

    Dogeater say, “You drop out and we drop the case.” Go Biden!

    That’s sarc, people. Actually, Biden terrifies me because as a politician who has been in office since ’73 he’s beholden to every big money and special interest group there is.

    • Blacksmith

      I do believe Biden would not win even if he got the nomination.

  • Wow, that is very good news. Let’s hope the FBI uses the info and does not smother it. HC should be prosecuted and sent to jail.

    • Blacksmith

      “HC should be prosecuted and sent to jail.”

      Then tried for her other many crimes and shot!

  • Blacksmith

    Why the F$%k has it taken months for this to happen? Most of us knew this right after this scandal broke. Govt is so efficient, lets let them take charge of more of our lives

  • Gary

    But she meant well.

      Prison is for federal offenses, but yes.

    I guess Bill and Hilary’s experience of getting away with everything has suddenly come to a screeching halt. They’ve never been exposed to the “your sins will find you out” concept. Now she’s finding out that truth.
