FBI Docs: Hillary IT ‘Joked’ About ‘Cover-Up Operation’

A member of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s IT team talked about taking part in a “Hilary [sic] coverup [sic] operation,” new FBI documents reveal.

The documents, released en masse Friday afternoon, include numerous notes the FBI made of interviews with members of Clinton’s staff and Platte River Networks, the private company that handled her private email server.

In one of them, an unnamed employee of Platte River Networks is shown an email from 2014 in which he refers to a “coverup operation” with Clinton’s emails.

“After reviewing an email dated December 11, 2014 with the subject line ‘RE: 2 items for IT support,’ and a December 12, 2014 work ticket referencing email retention changes and archive/email cleanup, [redacted] stated his reference in the email to ‘…the Hilary [sic] coverup [sic] operation…’ was probably due to the requested change to a 60 day email retention policy and the comment was a joke,” the FBI’s notes say.

The joke, if it was one, was made a few days after Clinton turned over more than 30,000 emails to the Department of State.
