Dear FBI, This Is Intent: Hillary's "Oh Shit" Guy Sought Reddit Advice On How To "Strip VIP's Emails"

Tyler Durden's picture

At this point, our readers should be intimately familiar with the timeline leading up to the "Oh Shit" moment when the Platte River Networks employee, Paul Combetta, deleted Hillary's emails despite later admitting to the FBI that 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" (if not, see "The "Oh Shit" Moment: Hillary Wiped Her Server With BleachBit Despite Subpoena").  Once Combetta was summoned to testify in front of Congress, we also learned that the FBI had granted Combetta an immunity deal (see "The "Oh Shit" Guy That Wiped Hillary's Server With BleachBit Was Just Granted Immunity"). 

Well, the plot just continues to thicken around the "Oh Shit" guy as a political researcher just posted the following tweet that exposes a Reddit thread from July 2014 in which Combetta sought tech advice on how to "strip out a VIP's (VERY VIP) email address from a bunch of archived emails."


The full thread initiated by Combetta can be viewed here, but below are a couple of the key exchanges. 

Combetta started the thread on July 24, 2014 with the following question seeking technical advice on how to "strip out a VIP's (VERY VIP) email address from a bunch of archived email[s]."  "Ironically," the day before the Reddit thread appeared, the Benghazi Committee reached an agreement with the State Department on the production of email and other records related to their investigation.



Combetta was quickly admonished by a user named "borismkv" that "you can't change them" because it was illegal and "could result in major legal issues."  That, however, didn't seem to deter the ambitious Combetta who continued to press "borismkv" for ways around the legal issues.



The whole exchange may have been overlooked but for the following discovery from "Katica" linking Paul Combetta to the "stonetear" user name.  In the post below, this administrator notes that he's "extremely grateful to Paul Combetta" who can be reached at "" 




So, now we have evidence of the Hillary campaign and Platte River Networks conspiring in July 2014 (the  day after the Benghazi Committee reached an agreement with the State Department on the production of email records and a full 5 months before Hillary finally delivered all of her emails) to "strip out emails" in an obvious attempt to thwart efforts to collect federal records.  

Could someone within the FBI please explain how this does not constitute "intent"?

He is not only stupid, he is incompetent.    That sort of redaction is trivial for anybody with any programming skills at all.....

What difference – at this point, what difference does it make


btw - there is additional information pointing at this being legit. for one, he was talking about his car on reddit, and some sleuth located that exact car being parked outside his address. he also spoke of a dog, which was likewise identified.


jcaz's picture

Let's give him immunity, so he can take the 5th......

Oh shit, we tried that already.

Oh well, at least we tried... Or at least look like we tried....

Hey good news- I just got my GS-15.....

Good question, but there's no denying she is. But this guy isn't. Maybe he will be the fall guy, she can claim innocence, the press will point to it and say "look, the justice system works, that guy did it all without hillarys knowledge, and now he is in jail" and declare the whole episode to be closed. Then, he will hang himself in his cell in a couple months after no one is paying attention. End of story.

What's truly incredible about all of this is the irony and hypocrisy of the witch who was part of the assault on Richard Nixon for a simple break-in of Democrat headquarters at the Watergate Hotel.  Compare THAT insignificant event, which brought down a sitting president, to the treason of sharing state secrets as bribes for the Clinton Foundation!  It's also interesting to note how the MSM was totally behind the former attack, yet today defends with all its collective might the traitorous HRC.  If this doesn't illustrate to even the dimmest bulbs how skewed our vaunted "democrazy" is, nothing will.  Utterly unbelievable times we live in.

Obama/Comey/Lynch are NOT going to send Hillary or any of her accomplices to jail.  They have made up their minds and Hell nor High Water are going to change this decision.

It's up to the voter to take Hillary down and keep all of these Jackass Criminals out of the government and the White House.

thanks again stainless.

hillary may have immunity under the obama administration, lynch's justice department, and comey's fbi, but she has never been tried for any of her crimes and they are so many. 

should someone other than she advance to the presidency and others take control of justice and the fbi . . . .

no double jeopardy here.  just jeopardy.

for her.

fleur de lis's picture

That is one more reason why so many Republicans in DC want Hellcat to get in.

She will keep the status quo, Trump will fire a lot of them.


Oldwood's picture

Besides the protection the Clinton cartel provides, these assholes are not going to go down the road of holding anyone accountable as they would ALL likely end up in jail. That's what makes corruption so hard to defeat as to open the door to prosecution would take them all down.

I'v been to some political rallys recently. At the opportune time I have yelled out TREASON!!! at the top of my lungs. Even the so called "good" opposition gets nervous at that word, you can sense that they hope it does not catch on.

Treason would bring a whole lot of them down.

I thank you for your service to our country.

Ya like voting will change anything.

jeff montanye's picture

oh come on.  what's it cost?  a little trip and a little wait.

downside/upside: you're either proven right or pleasantly surprised.

trump would be the first person without prior government or military (distinction without a difference, imo) experience to be president.

the likud zionists and the banksters are all against him.  he won't take sheldon adelson's $100 million.

he wants to work with putin.  he likes single payer health.  he doesn't support the wars in ukraine, libya or syria.

hillary started them.

fleur de lis's picture

Hellcat is really unhealthy, so the strain of office will take its toll.

That means she will have to work very fast.

She will conpound the damage early on and if/when she becomes incapacitated, Kaine will step in.

A vote for Hellcat is really a vote for Kaine.

At the root, it's a vote for the deep state.  The rest is irrelevant.

Remember they tried the '' its not worth voting, the fix is in '' with Brexit. Please, Please vote , what do you lose?

Comey should not have comprimised himself legally ... who is going to accept more excuses, hence it will keep coming back to haunt him ... time for a new identity and life elsewhere I do believe.

In this though try and create a scenario that Comey stays alive and out of jail ... gets more difficult all the time.

"... time for a new identity and life elsewhere I do believe"

Hey ZHs travel a lot , everywhere, so one of us should spot him and alert Donald's raiders to come stuff  him in a sack and throw him on the next unmarked aircraft to Gitmo.  And no one will know and no one will hear the screams. 

True Blue's picture

Are you intentionally putting those three words in the wrong order? (Lynch Comey and Clinton, that is.)

Uncle Sugar's picture

Include Lois Lerner and Bergdahl.  Where is that fucker anyway?

jeff montanye's picture

try them for their crimes.  the great mass of the unaware must see why they must be punished.

Ain't No Sunshine's picture

There can be no Statute of Limitations on Hillary's crimes because she has committed an unlimited number of crimes.

It is Trumps duty to bring her ass down. Pull!

SoDamnMad's picture

Oh but look at the FBI scurry around NYC and NJ hunting this murderous bomber who blows up DUMPSTERS.  You can smell the fish , Yes?

Crazy manifesto. What not drop a backpack (too obvious) or box of trash in Rockefellrr Center day before Christmas Eve or Times Square on say the day before New Years Eve to really get some attention.

Crooked Comey should resign.



Al Gophilia's picture

No, he should be manacled and forcibly removed, to a holding cell.

espirit's picture

No, Treason is punishable by death so says our law.

jeff montanye's picture

maybe so maybe not.  there have been treason convictions since ww2 but no executions for it since then.

dead men tell no tales but the convicted and jailed have sometimes revealed items of interest.

(dead men)

Are they men if reproductive organs removed?

In today's climate politics trumps all.

I see what you did there.

Some call me Richard Parker's picture

It would be orse for him if he was forced to have Hillary sit on his face.

JSB, how do you feel about 'Air on  G String' accompanying Hillary's epic meltdown late election eve?  Any of your works more suitable?

J S Bach's picture

Well, being that Hillary has probably blown a lot of air (and saliva) on G-strings, I suppose it would be apropos.

wombats's picture

That is just too disgusting to contemplate.  Ick!

I wouldn't doubt that bitch hasn't gotten laid since her honeymoon.  I'd imagine that Chelsea was the product of artificial insemination once Hillary found out Slick Willy had come down with a little touch of the AIDS.

jeff montanye's picture

2016-36=1980.  and balling webb hubbell had ancillary benefits for hillary at the rose law firm where they both worked as partners.  after all he was about to be elected mayor of little rock and hillary believes it helps to know influential people in government.

Bank_sters's picture

The FBI had how many agents on this case?    At this point, Comey may want to take out a life insurance policy.

The_Dude's picture

Seriously...let's fire 3/4th of the FBI and just crowdsource this shit and we'll get a more factual outcome.

Poundsand's picture

It won't be prosecuted because some of that information went to the grand poobah himself or worse yet, came from him.  Obama would then be guilty of sending classified info to a none classified e-mail.

What a flippin mess.

29.5's picture

Exactly. To indict Hillary would mean the majority of government is indicted.

fleur de lis's picture

The majority of government don't work for us anyway.

They won't be missed.

And they won't get indicted either.
