The FBI might be done with their investigation of Hillary and whether classified information passed through her private email server that was operated by a Denver company (it did), but Congress is not.
Platte River Networks was subpoenaed Tuesday by a congressional committee to turn information over to the House panel in its investigation as to whether current laws need to be strengthened. Not surprising since charges were dropped against Hillary.
“Platte River has fully cooperated for almost a year. Right now, we can’t figure out what other data could possibly be out there to help them,” said (company lawyer Kenneth) Eichner, adding that Platte employees have been interviewed numerous times and handed over all documents requested by the FBI. “The FBI has already stripped (the server) and found all the security to be robust and that there were no breaches. I’m sure that piece was part of the decision for the FBI to move forward.”
Congress doesn’t seem to think the company has fully cooperated. Here’s why U.S. Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, chairman of the Science, Space and Technology Committee, says further investigation is warranted:
“Companies providing services to Secretary Hillary Clinton’s private email account and server are not above the law. These companies have failed to comply with our committee’s request for documents and interviews that would provide information critical to understanding Secretary Clinton’s private server and informing policy changes in how to prevent similar email arrangements in the future. The committee is issuing subpoenas to obtain the information necessary to answer questions about the structure and security of the email system and whether or not the cybersecurity standards and measures used to protect information stored on Secretary Clinton’s private server were in accord with NIST standards. The committee is also concerned about the preservation of the records on Secretary Clinton’s private server.
Just because Democrats are desperate for the issue to disappear, does not excuse Congress from completing its due diligence to ensure laws are enforced or strengthened.
