Hillary Clinton IT Specialist Deletes Incriminating Web Forum Posts Hours After True Pundit Story Published
True Pundit broke a news story earlier today detailing how Hillary Clinton and her aides directed Platte River Networks to systematically alter, fabricate and forge emails to protect her communications from being “exposed to anyone.”
Hours after the story was published an analysis by True Pundit determined Platte River Network computer specialist Paul Combetta had deleted a number of messages from his “stonetear” reddit.com account, including the smoking-gun correspondences detailed in the original expose. True Pundit, however, warehoused many of the posts in case they were deleted from the web site.
That story detailed how the Clinton request was so unusual and complex that Denver-based Platte River IT executives, who maintained Clinton’s private email server, had to turn to other IT gurus on the clandestine chat forum for a solution to try to satisfy their “VIP” client, as executives dubbed Clinton. Combetta turned to a web forum on computer coding to solicit help with Clinton’s directive to forge her emails, according to documents. Writing under the seemingly-stealth screen name “stonetear,” Combetta asked reddit.com forum users in July 2014:
“Hello all- I may be facing a very interesting situation where I need to strip out a VIP’s (VERY VIP) email address from a bunch of archived email that I have both in a live Exchange mailbox, as well as a PST file. Basically, they don’t want the VIP’s email address exposed to anyone, and want to be able to either strip out or replace the email address in the to/from fields in all of the emails we want to send out.
I am not sure if something like this is possible with PowerShell, or exporting all of the emails to MSG and doing find/replaces with a batch processing program of some sort.
Does anyone have experience with something like this, and/or suggestions on how this might be accomplished?”
Complying with such request would violate a host of federal criminal statutes, which were detailed in the original expose.
Combetta received an immunity agreement from the Justice Department to cooperate with the FBI’s now defunct criminal investigation into Clinton’s handling of classified email while secretary of state. Combetta is also accused of deleting an untold number Clinton’s emails despite orders from Congress to preserve them. Perhaps he should have deleted his reddit.com messages at that time as well.
We know one thing now that we didn’t know hours ago: Combetta is a True Pundit reader.
Combetta deleted the below exchange in addition to all of his others posts.
