Hillary Clinton’s former IT firm, Platte River Networks, have revealed that the presidential candidate chose to store the email server, which we now know contained hundreds and possibly thousands of top secret emails, in a bathroom in her private home.
The Daily Mail managed to track down ex-employees of the IT firm in Denvor, Colorado, who told the British newspaper that the firm had strong links to the Democratic party, and said they were shocked that Hillary Clinton chose them to manage such a sensitive job.
One, Tera Dadiotis, called it ‘a mom and pop shop’ which was an excellent place to work, but hardly seemed likely to be used to secure state secrets. And Tom Welch, who helped found the company, confirmed the servers were in a bathroom closet.
The employees who worked directly with the presidential candidate were told to keep quiet on the work they were instructed to perform on the email server.
An important question needs to be asked following these revelations: how much top secret information were the non-government contractors exposed to when working for Clinton?
The ex-employees also revealed to The Daily Mail that the security on the email server was severely lacking:
‘At the time I worked for them they wouldn’t have been equipped to work for Hilary Clinton because I don’t think they had the resources, they were based out of a loft, so [it was] not very high security, we didn’t even have an alarm.
‘I don’t know how they run their operation now, but we literally had our server racks in the bathroom. I mean knowing how small Platte River Networks… I don’t see how that would be secure [enough for Clinton].’
The FBI recently took the server in a raid, and are conducting an analysis of to find how much top secret government information was illegally stored on them. It is anticipated that potentially 1,500 classified emails may have been stored on the machine.
