The "Oh Shit" Moment: Hillary Wiped Her Server With BleachBit Despite Subpoena

Tyler Durden's picture

The story of how Hillary's "personal" emails came to be deleted using, the now infamous, BleachBit is quite the tale.  Below we attempt to piece together how the story unfolded per the recent FBI disclosures.

Here is a quick summary of the timeline of events:

  • February 2013 – Hillary resigns from State Department
  • Spring 2013 – Hillary aide Monica Hanley backs up Pagliano Server to Apple MacBook and a thumb drive
  • February 2014 – Monica Hanley attempts to upload Hillary email archives to new Platte River Networks (PRN) server but encounters technical issues
  • Early 2014 – Monica Hanley mails Apple MacBook to Undisclosed PRN Staff Member to upload Hillary email archives to new PRN server.  Undisclosed PRN Staff Member then uploads Hillary’s emails to a gmail account and then transfers them over to the new PRN server.  The Undisclosed PRN Staff Member deletes most of the emails from gmail but indvertently leaves 940.
  • Early 2014Monica Hanley advises Undisclosed PRN Staff Member to wipe the Apple MacBook clean after uploading Hillary’s emails to the new PRN server but he forgets to do it
  • Early 2014 - Undisclosed PRN Staff Member mails Apple MacBook back to Clinton and it is promptly lost
  • December 2014 – Hillary delivers 55,000 emails to State Department
  • December 2014 / January 2015Heather Samuelson and Cheryl Mills request emails be deleted from their computer using BleachBit
  • December 2014 / January 2015“Unknown Clinton staff member” instructs PRN to remove archives of Clinton emails from PRN server
  • March 2, 2015 - NYT releases an article showing that Hillary used a personal email server in violation of State Department rules
  • March 4, 2015Hillary receives subpoena from House Select Committee on Benghazi instructing her to preserve and deliver all emails from her personal servers
  • March 25, 2015 – Undisclosed PRN Staff Member has a conference call with “President Clinton’s Staff”
  • March 25 – 31, 2015 – Undisclosed PRN Staff Member has “oh shit” moment and realizes he forgot to wipe Hillary’s email archive from the PRN server back in Decemberwhich he promptly does using BleachBit despite later admitting he "was aware of the existence of the preservation request and the fact that it meant he should not disturb Clinton's e-mail data on the PRN server."
  • June 2016 – FBI discovers that Undisclosed PRN Staff Member forgot to erase 940 emails from the gmail account he created to help with the PRN server upload

And now the details...

Hillary resigned from the State Department in February 2013.  Shortly thereafter, in "spring 2013", Hillary's close aide, Monica Hanley, worked with Bill Clinton's aide, Justin Cooper, to archive all of Hillary's emails from the "Pagliano Server" that Clinton used to house her State Department emails while serving as Secretary of State.  With Cooper's assistance, Hanley was successful transferring all of Hillary's emails from the "Pagliano Server" to an Apple MacBook with a duplicate copy saved to a "Thumb Drive".

At that point, Hanley "forgot" to provide the archived emails to Clinton's staff.  So apparently the Apple MacBook and Thumb Drive just stayed around Hanley's house for a year.  

Then in February 2014, Hanley decided it wasn't the best idea to leave the email records of the former U.S. Secretary of State in her sock drawer forever.  As such, she decided it was time to backup the archived emails to Clinton's new server hosted by Platte River Networks (PRN) in Denver, Colorado.  Unfortunately, she was not successful with the remote backup and mailed the computer to an Undisclosed PRN Staff Member to help with the task.

Apparently, the Undisclosed PRN Staff Member also had difficulty uploading the emails to the new PRN server because the "Apple MacMail" format was incompatible with Microsoft Exchange.  So, he/she came up with a workaround that involved transferring all of Clinton's emails to a new gmail account and then exporting them to the PRN server.

Gmail is pretty safe, right?

Monica Hanley then advised the Undisclosed PRN Staff Member to "wipe the Archive Laptop" after the emails had been transferred to the new PRN server.  But apparently he forgot to "wipe" and laptop and instead just deleted the old emails.  But wouldn't you know it..."Neither Hanely nor [Undisclosed PRN Staff Member] could identify the current whereabouts of the Archive Laptop or thumb drive containing the archive, and the FBI does not have either item in its possession."

So the two pieces of physical hardware that could provide all the missing links in the Hillary email investigation have mysteriously gone missing.  Anyone else find that odd?

Unfortunately, the "Undisclosed PRN Staff Member" was apparently not an "attention to detail" kind of guy as the FBI later discovered that he/she had left 940 of Clinton's emails on gmail.  Of the 940 emails, 56 were classified as confidential and 302 were not included in the 55,000 page data dump to the State Department in December 2014.

Now this brings us all the way up to December 2014 when Clinton sent the 55,000 pages to the State Department.  Recall, as Politico previously reported, Hillary brought in a former campaign staffer, Heather Samuelson (34 years old), to help determine which emails were "work related" and which "yoga related."

Shortly after providing that data dump to the State Department, in "December 2014 or January 2015," both Heather Samuelson and Cheryl Mills requested that all emails be removed from their computers using "a program called BleachBit to delete the e-mail-related files so they could not be recovered."

For her part, "Clinton stated she never deleted, nor did she instruct anyone to delete, her e-mails to avoid complying with FOIA, State or FBI requests for information."

Of course not.  Hillary knew it would be a little too obvious to specifically instruct her staff to permanently delete the emails but she also knew it might be "inconvenient" to have them around.    So, she simply "decided she no longer needed access to any of her e-mails older than 60 days."

See?  She never specifically said to delete anything she just made a simple administrative decision on document retention policies.

Then, on March 4, 2015, Hillary received a subpoena from the House for all of her emails on her personal servers.

Which brings us to the "Oh Shit" moment.

On March 25, 2015, the Undisclosed PRN Staff Member had a "conference call with President Clinton's staff."  Apparently, in the days following that call, the Undisclosed PRN Staff Member had an "'oh shit' moment" when he realized he had forgotten to wipe the PRN server clean as he had been instructed to do back in December by Cheryl Mills. 

Therefore, sometime within the 6 days after a call with "President Clinton's Staff," that PRN server was wiped clean using BleachBit despite the subpoena from the House Select Committee on Benghazi received weeks earlier on March 4, 2016. 

And, of course, the Undisclosed PRN Staff Member is the only person responsible for the deletion as Mills, Hillary, President Clinton's Office were all blissfully unaware of the actions of their rogue IT guy of Platte River Networks in Denver, Colorado.

Ironically, the rogue IT guy from PRN even admits to deleting the emails even though he "was aware of the existence of the preservation request and the fact that it meant he should not disturb Clinton's e-mail data on the PRN server."

Something tells us this "Undisclosed PRN Staff Member" is not going to make out as well as Hillary when all the dust settles, which of course she can 'wipe' with a cloth:

but just so we all can rest easy, the department of homeland security headed by jeh johnson will be monitoring the elections.

(from wiki) "In 1998, Johnson was appointed General Counsel of the Air Force by President Bill Clinton after confirmation by the U.S. Senate. As General Counsel, Johnson was the senior legal official in the Air Force and Governor of Wake Island, in the Pacific Ocean.[16] His tenure coincided with Operation Allied Force in 1999 (nato bombing of yugoslavia and the chinese embassy, my insert). He was awarded the Decoration for Exceptional Civilian Service for his efforts.[3]"

and check out how ol' jeh handled bernie sanders recently:

he should be even handed.  i feel so much better now.

There are two overlapping agencies, FBI and Homeland Security.

FBI seems to be in trouble now with the public after Clinton wiped clean.

Not only is Clinton incompetent and unqualified to be President but her aids are incompetent and unqualified to assist her and the the FBI is incompetent and unqualified to be in the investigative business.  100 agents working on this for a year and they come up with the results we got?

There is no way the FBI could possibly have foreseen this.

No way.

This is sexist. She's innocent. Trust me.

They all are not "incompetent"

This is organized crime to include the FBI as enabler with Comey as the conduit

We are witnessing in full public view shortly before the most consequential election in US history that representative democracy and the law have been suspended

Who believes the criminals known as Clinton will not steal the election as well???

Your wallet / bank Acct / property - is next - just takes more steps

I have not looked at any of the docs (.docx?)... but if they were stupid enough to hand them over in native file format , maybe that would be like Obama's fake birth certificate in .pdf that was posted then subsequently the layers were desconstructed by the rabble and fraud revealed until Obama's White House said oops! and replaced it with a raster scan.

Hillary will have to step down, and.... We will just have to give Obama, I mean King Obama, a third term.

  You might have a point.  Hillary is becoming a liability to TPTB.  Only the media and a handful of special interst folks consider her electable.  I can't help but wonder if the health issues became public too early.  Too late though for another democrat leader convention. 

  If she was disqualified or deceased before the election,  do you really think they would call on Bernie to step up to the plate?  Someone posted a link here to the size of crowds showing up at Trump and Clinton rallies.  If the media polls aren't bullshit then they are almost unique as far as "news" goes.

  I can't help but think that some end game is unfolding that will leave us all with less freedom and wealth.  This is so surreal.

I'm pretty sure a play has been initiated. For months the Daily Telegraph has printed nada about Hillery's troubles and gone batshit about Trump the racist bigotted philanderer. Then today she hit the headlines, which coming from a newspaper owned lock and stock by the Establishment was a complete 180. Methinks she may becoming a massive liability - especially if the Benghazi emails are incriminating, given there is no way to put a lid on them if they make it to the public domain via Assange. Being a bit fucked in the head isn't going to help her cause, either - Trump will butt-fuck her royally in the head-to-head debates. I'm wondering if she will even turn up for the first one.

Time for Biden to make his move now Bernie has fallen by the wayside?

The polling could indicate that even with Massive Voter Fraud people won't vote for her.

I sense the MSM sensing that the public is turning against them.  Even the Dems laugh at how bought and sold the MSM is.  The news media has rapidly lost credibility:  every nightly program ending with a cutsie little feel-good item...  The anchors offer nothing but info-tainment now.  None of them can look the public in the eye and say, "And that's the way it was."

The Bitch could use a machine gun to mow down democrats and they'd still vote for her.  And they will.

So, CLEARLY NO INTENT THEN, ehhh Comey?...

(f) Whoever, being entrusted with or having lawful possession or control of any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch, photograph, photographic negative, blueprint, plan, map, model, instrument, appliance, note, or information, relating to the national defense,
(1) through gross negligence permits the same to be removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of his trust, or to be lost, stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, (Edit: that would be BleachBit & deleting emails with her personal attorneys who ARE ALSO NOT CLEARED TO VIEW CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS)


(2) having knowledge that the same has been illegally removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of its trust, or lost, or stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, and fails to make prompt report of such loss, theft, abstraction, or destruction to his superior officer—(Edit: In her case that would be Obama)...


Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.
(g) If two or more persons conspire to violate any of the foregoing provisions of this section, and one or more of such persons do any act to effect the object of the conspiracy, (Edit: That would be anyone on her staff) each of the parties to such conspiracy shall be subject to the punishment provided for the offense which is the object of such conspiracy.

And the kicker...Obama signed Executive Order 13526 to back it up in 2009.

But of course, we are no longer "a nation of laws" are we Mr.Comey? Pay close attention to (c) & (d).

Oh by the way, go fuck yourself.

They will have to give her the body count treatment that she has doled out so many times. Before that, they will need to neutralize her "emergency release" protocol for the "in the event of untimely death" scenario. The only reason she is around is b/c she has all the dirt.

She is at leage with the devil however, and the devil cares not for any bargain.
