On 60 Minutes last night, President Obama said the worries over Hillary’s email server had been “ginned up.”
But for now at least, the FBI seems to have a slightly less cavalier attitude about the whole affair:
Platte River Networks has already given the FBI the server Clinton maintained as secretary of state. Now, the small IT firm will hand over a separate device manufactured by a Connecticut-based company called Datto Inc.
“The data device is a simple device that sat next to the server,” Platte River spokesman Andy Boian told TheDC in a phone interview.
Platte River, which was contracted to work on Clinton’s email account in May 2013 and hired Datto shortly after, used a Datto SIRIS S2000 to provide a cloud-based virtual backup of Clinton’s physical server, which it housed in a New Jersey data center.
In all fairness to the former Secretary of State, who seems to be ignorant about tech issues, deleting stuff from the cloud is hard.
