Good news, America. The woman who wants to be the President of the United States hired an email server company to host her own personal server, on which she sent and received top secret classified information, out of a bathroom closet. You just can't make this stuff up. Daily Mail has the exclusive:
The IT company Hilary Clinton chose to maintain her private email account was run from a loft apartment and its servers were housed in the bathroom closet, Daily Mail Online can reveal.
Daily Mail Online tracked down ex-employees of Platte River Networks in Denver, Colorado, who revealed the outfit's strong links to the Democrat party but expressed shock that the 2016 presidential candidate chose the small private company for 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.
It can also be disclosed that the small number of employees who were aware of the Clinton contract were told to keep it secret.
The way in which Clinton came to contract a company described as a 'mom and pop' operation remains unclear.
However Daily Mail Online has established a series of connections between the firm and the Democrat party.
So, not only was Clinton more interested in avoiding public scrutiny than protecting national security through use a of a private server, she was likely also interested in helping out friends of the Democrat party by using a tiny, incapable firm.
Keep in mind Clinton claimed in March that her server was set up for her husband, Bill Clinton, during his time as President and said it was guarded by the Secret Service. That narrative, like the rest of her story, seems to be quickly falling apart.
Intelligence analysts have been saying for months that there's no doubt Clinton's system was hacked by foreign governments like China and Russia. Now we know she made it extra easy for them to do so. We're still waiting to find out just how bad the hacking was and what specific information was exposed.
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.
