One of the recently exposed emails from the Hillary Clinton email scandal has raised some pretty damaging questions for the Clinton campaign. One of the 189 pages of FBI documents that were dumped this past Friday had an interesting line from an employee at Platte River Networks (the company that managed Hillary’s illicit server). In inter-office emails the employees at the company referred to something that they called the “Hillary Coverup Operation.” These emails came in the days AFTER the Clinton team told them to start wiping her emails from the server (even though they had been subpeoned by the government). Watch as Clinton’s chief spokesperson, Robby Mook, fails to answer Jake Tapper’s questions:
Jake Tapper: There was a document dump on Friday where we learned from the FBI that an I.T. contractor managing Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server made reference to the “Hillary coverup operation” in a work ticket.
He used that after an aide asked him to automatically delete emails after 60 days. This I.T. worker thought he was covering something up, no?
Robby Mook: I’m glad you asked this question. A lot of this stuff is swirling around out the ether. It’s important to pull back and look at the facts.
The FBI did a comprehensive and deep investigation into this and at the conclusion of that, FBI Director Comey came out and said to the world that there was no case here. That they did not have evidence of wrongdoing on Hillary’s part.
Jake Tapper: So what’s the “Hillary cover-up operation” that the I.T. worker was referring to?
Robby Mook: This is the perfect example of what’s going on here. The Republicans in the House are selectively leaking documents for the purpose of making Hillary look bad. We asked FBI to release all information they shared with the Republicans so we can get the full picture.
Again I would trust the career professionals at the FBI and Justice Department who looked into this matter, concluded there was no case [more] than I would Republicans who are selectively leaking information.
