New documents released by the FBI Friday in another late-week document dump revealed that an IT aide to former secretary of state Hillary Clinton once referred to the operation to begin automatically deleting her emails as the “Hillary cover-up operation.”
The employee worked for the Platte River Network, which was the company tasked with handling Clinton’s emails after she left the State Department in February 2013.
The employee made the comment in December 2014 after he was asked to modify the email system to automatically delete emails after 60 days. According to the FBI’s report, the unnamed employee later told investigators that his comment was “a joke.”
