Delete-gate update: Hillary turns over what’s left of her email server to the FBI

Hillary Clinton last month: “I am confident that I never sent nor received any information that was classified at the time it was sent and received”

It depends on what your definition of “confident” is:

The inspector general for the Intelligence Community notified senior members of Congress that two of four classified emails discovered on the server Clinton maintained at her New York home contained material deemed to be in one of the highest security classifications – more sensitive than previously known.

The network newscasts might not be super interested in that tidbit (they’ve got Trump stuff to talk about), but it did pique the interest of the FBI. So in response to that, Team Hillary, in the interest of being totally transparent in their efforts to dodge indictments, has graciously turned over her server to investigators:

Hillary Rodham Clinton relented Tuesday to months of demands she relinquish the personal email server she used while secretary of state, directing the device be given to the Justice Department.

The decision advances the investigation into the Democratic presidential front-runner’s use of a private email account as the nation’s top diplomat, and whether classified information was improperly sent via and stored on the home-brew email server she ran from her house in suburban New York City.

Clinton campaign spokesman Nick Merrill said she has “pledged to cooperate with the government’s security inquiry, and if there are more questions, we will continue to address them.”

It’s not clear if the device will yield any information — Clinton’s attorney said in March that no emails from the main personal address she used while secretary of state still “reside on the server or on back-up systems associated with the server.”

Hillary also reportedly turned over a thumb drive containing what they claim are copies of all the emails. It’s always refreshing to see U.S. justice employ the honor system for select individuals.

The FBI is apparently tracking the trail of bread crumbs left by the homebrew server — a task that could take them from the top of the highest mountain to the depths of the deepest oceans. Up to now though, they’ve been to Colorado:

A Colorado company is now a part of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email system. The FBI is looking into the security of the server she used while she was secretary of state.

A Denver company called Platte River Networks was handling the email of the secretary of state of the U.S., but it wasn’t a government account. It was a private account and it’s raising questions about security.

Last week FBI agents visited Platte River Networks which was involved in handling the Clinton email accounts. Sources related to that visit told CBS4 Investigator Rick Sallinger the company has been asked to preserve any information related to the emails involving Bill and Hillary Clinton.

The RNC seems a bit overconfident:

“All this means is that Hillary Clinton, in the face of FBI scrutiny, has decided she has run out of options,” Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus in a statement. “She knows she did something wrong and has run out of ways to cover it up.”

The Clintons never run out of ways to cover something up.

But who knows, we might end up finding out Hillary’s private server was more secure than the State Department’s system:
