Remember when Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton assured us, back when this whole email controversy first erupted, that her server was kept in a “secure facility”? Turns out, not surprisingly I guess, the veracity of this assurance depends on your definition of “secure.”
If by “secure” Mrs. Clinton meant her email server was stored behind a door polite people knock before entering — a room in which the “business done” is typically kept private — then I suppose there was some truth to Clinton’s previous claims.
Yep, turns out the “secure facility” where our former Secretary of State’s email server was stored was none other than an apartment bathroom. Seriously, you just can’t make this stuff up.As Breitbart reports:
Yesterday we learned Hillary Clinton’s computer company, tiny Platte River Networks of Denver, Colorado, was not authorized to handle the classified and Top Secret material contained on her illicit email server.Today we learn just how far from an authorized Top Secret shop it really was, courtesy of the UK Daily Mail, which talked to a few former employees of the company:
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 employee who talked with the Daily Mail left Platte River Networks in 2010, and conceded that they probably beefed up their facilities a bit before they took on the Secretary of State’s secret email server in 2013. However, the Daily Mail reports the company didn’t move out of that loft apartment until recently, “when they moved to a much bigger 12,000 square foot space,” celebrating the move with an open house party on June 18.
Describing it as ‘a great place to work, but kind of like a mom and pop shop’, Tera reacted with disbelief that her former company was hired to manage the email system of Democrat juggernaut Hilary Clinton.
Speaking to Daily Mail Online at her home in Castle Rock, Colorado, Tera said: ‘I think it’s really bizarre, I don’t know how that relationship evolved.
‘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 Daily Mail also goes a long way toward solving the mystery of how Hillary Clinton, who lives on a vast estate in Chappaqua, New York, chose this loft apartment company in Denver to handle her email server: the company has solid Democrat Party connections, did some work for Democrat Governor John Hickenlooper, and might have come to the attention of the Clinton organization during the 2008 Democratic convention.
Of course. Now it all makes sense. Why would the former Secretary of State entrust her private personal business — not to mention, our nation’s TOP SECRET information — with anyone other than trusted
friends political operatives?
Naturally, the news of Mrs. Clinton’s server being stored in a bathroom offers plenty of fodder for jokes. Sadly, the joke our former Secretary of State made of our national security is no laughing matter.
