FBI Probe Of Clinton’s Server Could Show Other Email Accounts, Security Levels & Even HACKER Intrusions
Now that federal investigators have Hillary Rodham Clinton’s homebrew email server, they could examine files on her machine that would be more revelatory than the emails themselves.
Clinton last week handed over to the FBI her private server, which she used to send, receive and store emails during her four years while secretary of state.
The bureau is holding the machine in protective custody after the intelligence community’s inspector general raised concerns that classified information had traversed the system.
Questions about her use of the server have shadowed her campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Clinton again this weekend repeated a carefully constructed defense of her actions, in that she did not send or receive emails marked classified at the time.
But her emails show some messages she wrote were censored by the State Department for national security reasons before they were publicly released.
The government blacked out those messages under a provision of the Freedom of Information Act intended to protect material that had been deemed and properly classified for purposes of national defense or foreign policy.
What hasn’t been released: data that could show how secure her system was, whether someone tried to break in, and who else had accounts on her system.
A lawyer for Platte River Networks, a Colorado-based technology services company that began managing the Clinton server in 2013, said the server was provided to the FBI last week.
Indeed, many physical details of the server remain unknown, such as whether its data was backed up. In March, The Associated Press discovered that her server traced back to an Internet connection at her home in Chappaqua, New York. More
