One of Hillary Clinton's Laptops Got 'Lost' in The Mail

New revelations from a Friday FBI document dump show a Clinton Foundation laptop containing Hillary Clinton's personal email server archive was "lost" in the mail after a staffer sent it to the former Secretary of State and current Democrat presidential nominee. The laptop was requested to be turned over by the FBI as part of the criminal investigation into Clinton's use of multiple private email servers to store and transmit top secret, classified information.

A personal laptop computer used to archive Hillary Clinton’s e-mails when she was secretary of state went missing after being put in the mail, according to the FBI’s report on its investigation into her use of a private e-mail system.

E-mails that Clinton sent and received through her private server during her tenure were archived on the laptop in 2013 by a person who was an assistant to former President Bill Clinton, the FBI said in its heavily redacted investigative report released Friday.

Someone whose name was redacted in the FBI report told the agency that he later deleted the e-mails from the laptop but didn’t wipe its hard drive. A computer technician can often recover such e-mails that have been deleted but not permanently erased from a laptop’s memory.

The FBI sought the laptop as part of its investigation, but it’s whereabouts remain unknown, the bureau said: The last time the laptop was seen was when it was put in the mail.

In March 2015 Clinton claimed she turned over all material that could "possibly be work related" after the New York Times busted her for using a private server. Based on the information we now have about the FBI investigation, that is completely false.

On top of a missing laptop containing Clinton's personal email archive, we also know she used 13 devices for email, not one as she claimed for "convenience." Out of the 13 devices used, five of them were iPads. Two of those iPads are still missing a long with a number of Blackberries used by Clinton. Blackberries that weren't lost were destroyed by a staffer with a hammer. 

In total, more than 2100 pieces of classified information were found on Clinton's private server. That information, stored on the "missing" devices," is still vulnerable.
