In a moment of incalculable stupidity and recklessness, Hillary Clinton’s computer expert appeared to have publicly solicited advice on how to make her emails disappear.
An army of reddit users believes it has found evidence that former Hillary Clinton computer specialist Paul Combetta solicited free advice regarding Clinton’s private email server from users of the popular web forum. A collaborative investigation showed a reddit user with the username stonetear requested help in relation to retaining and purging email messages after 60 days, and requested advice on how to remove a “VERY VIP” individual’s email address from archived content.
The requests match neatly with publicly known dates related to Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state. Stonetear has deleted the posts, but before doing so, the pages were archived by other individuals. “ARCHIVE EVERYTHING YOU CAN!!!!” a person wrote on a popular thread on the Donald Trump-supporting subreddit r/The_Donald, as the entries disappeared.
There are several reasons to believe the reddit user is indeed Combetta, who was granted immunity by the Justice Department during its investigation of Clinton’s private server after he deleted a large number of emails. The evidence connecting Combetta to the account is circumstantial, but also voluminous. The inactive website combetta.com is registered to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org, a search of domain registration information using the service whois.com indicates. An account for a person named Paul Combetta on the web bazaar Etsy also has the username stonetear.
The rest of this article is a must-read, because it matches the dates of the Reddit posts to major milestones throughout the Hillary Clinton email scandal. Given this evidence, there is no doubt in my mind about 3 things:
- Paul Combetta intentionally deleted Hillary’s emails
- It was premeditated
- The orders came from somebody in the Hillary Clinton camp
With this single discovery, Reddit users have already accomplished more than the FBI’s entire investigation. One by one, the lies surrounding Hillary’s email scandal are falling apart. The question is, will this change anything? Will the FBI reopen its investigation and dig deeper?
