Number Of Hillary Classified Emails Found Rises to 60, Plus A Backup Drive Exists?

Hillary Clinton is losing control of her narrative.

"I did not have relations with that server" is the next line coming....
“I did not have relations with that server” is the next line coming….
After saying publicly that she never knowingly sent classified information while using her unsecured homebrew server (which begs the question, how exactly was she doing her job as Secretary of State?), we now know that at least two of the emails on that server were marked “Top Secret.” This forced Hillary to cough up the server, along with thumb drives held by her lawyer, David Kendall, to the FBI. There is now speculation that those emails may have had their “Top Secret” designation deliberately removed. Then we learned that the server had “migrated” to New Jersey, wiped “blank” by Platte River Networks, who then stored the server (why store it if there is nothing on it?). Now, the Washington Times is reporting that the number of classified emails on that server has risen to at least 60, not counting the two “Top Secret” ones.

Among the first 60 flagged emails, nearly all contained classified secrets at the lowest level of “confidential” and one contained information at the intermediate level of “secret,” officials told the Times.

Those 60 emails do not include two emails identified in recent days by Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III as containing “top-secret” information possibly derived from Pentagon satellites, drones or intercepts, which is some of the nation’s most sensitive secrets.

And, adding to the turmoil, officials are at loggerheads as everyone is trying to protect their own interests in the email matter.

The disagreements are part of a complex, and at times tense, process in which career lawyers and career FOIA officials, along with a dozen intelligence review analysts from different agencies, are trying to identify and protect intelligence information contained in Mrs. Clinton’s personal email account. State and FOIA lawyers normally work together on such requests, but this case has heightened tensions given Mrs. Clinton’s status as the Democratic presidential front-runner.

Amid the tensions, some career State employees have now alerted the intelligence community to irregularities that they fear may hide from the public the true extent of classified information that passed through her personal account, people familiar with the matter told The Times.

Their concerns include that one or more State Department attorneys involved in the production of the former secretary of state’s emails to Congress and a federal court have ties to Mrs. Clinton’s private attorney’s firm, creating at least the perception internally of a conflict of interest, sources told The Times, speaking only on the condition of anonymity.

“At present, [the career officials] have not formally sought whistleblower status, but their disclosures are likely legally protected from retaliation since they involve matters affecting Congress, the courts and national security,” one of the sources directly familiar with the matter told The Times.

If those officials seek whistleblower status, Hillary could be mired in scandal up to the neck, all while she would be trying to run in primaries across the country.

But wait, there’s more! Now, ABC is reporting that Platte River Networks, who had possession of the server after Hillary banished it from Chappaqua, may have created a backup of its data.


And if they made a backup, then all those deleted emails may still be recoverable.

Platte River Networks, which is already being sued for illegally accessing a master database of U.S. phone numbers and taking 390 phone lines from a number of government entities – including the White House military support desks – is promising that it is cooperating fully with the Justice Department regarding the potential backup drive. Think they may be considering all of their legal leverage at the moment?

So, now it’s a race – who will do the most damage to Hillary and when? The potential whistleblowers at the State Department, or the Platte River Networks suddenly coughing up a backup of Hillary’s entire server?

Either way, the Clinton machine has sprung several leaks. Only time will tell if one of them proves to be enough to stop this train in its tracks.
