"The State Department has lost all archived copies of the emails sent to and from the man believed to have set up and maintained Hillary Clinton’s private email server during the four years she served as secretary, it said on Monday.
However, the department has recovered some of IT specialist Bryan Pagliano’s messages, according to spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau, in apparent contradiction of a Republican National Committee (RNC) court filing earlier in the day.
“The department has searched for Mr. Pagliano’s email pst file and has not located one that covers the time period of Secretary Clinton’s tenure,” Trudeau said in a statement early on Monday evening. A pst file is a format for preserving email messages.
“The absence of this email file, however, does not indicate that the department has no emails sent or received by him,” she added. “In fact, we have previously produced through [the Freedom of Information Act] and to Congress emails sent and received by Mr. Pagliano during Secretary Clinton’s tenure.”
The State Department had previously told Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) that it could not find any backups of Pagliano’s email as part of a congressional probe in December, but its acknowledgment of the missing files on Monday nonetheless inflamed criticism of the agency’s recordkeeping practices.
Trudeau declined to comment on how or whether Pagliano stored his emails, or whether he might have decided to delete them after a certain period of time." The Hill
"The dog ate my homework?" Really? Well, why not?
It seems that complete cooperation with the courts and FOIA requests is not occurring. Are we expected to believe that the State Department AND the FBI cannot find this man's pst file in any of their computers to include HC's home server AND the back up contract servers that were in Denver? Really? We are expected to believe that?
Obama wants HC for a successor. He thinks that he can keep her in line and proceeding with his "revolution." Bibi and company also think she is "pushable." Why would they not? Her statement that the BDS movement is anti-Semitic must be music to many ears in Israel. It would be easy to believe that the word has gone forth from the Obama/Rhodes apparat with a message indicating that a certain "restraint" would be appropriate in investigating Mailgate. The press of course is compliant but, as the NY Times magazine hit piece on Rhodes teaches us they are basically an extension of Obama/Rhodes memetics operations. As some here have mentioned the author of that piece is an ardent Zionist so the motivation for writing the piece should be questioned. Was this literary effort payback for the effectiveness of Rhodes in promoting the Iran nuclear deal?
Interesting times indeed!
Obama is going to visit Hiroshima. IMO he will long to apologize for the US nuclear attack on the city. He knows he must not. To do so would be political folly. We will see what he does. pl
