Discrepancies regarding when emails were erased from Hillary Clinton’s private server have raised questions of whether the former secretary of state had a device other than the one that was recently obtained by the FBI.
“There’s pretty definite time stamps when you move information from one computer to another,” Marcus Rogers, head of computer information technology at Purdue University, told The Washington Examiner on Saturday. “Somebody knows exactly when this happened because those time stamps are there.”
Platte River Networks, the Denver-based company that managed Clinton’s email network after she left the State Department in 2013, told the Examiner earlier this month that it had transferred the data from Clinton’s original private server later that year.
A Platte River attorney said then that “no useful data” likely remained on the server.
However, the Clinton campaign has suggested that the Democratic front-runner did not erase emails she decided were personal until this past January.
The disclosure raised questions regarding where the emails were located when they were reviewed by her staff to determine which ones were related to her four years as the nation’s top diplomat, the Examiner reports.
It further raises concerns about the timing of Clinton’s decision to erase 30,000 emails that she said were not related to her work for the State Department, according to the report.
Neither a Clinton spokesman nor an attorney for Platte River Networks returned telephone calls seeking comment, the Examiner reports.
