The Denver-based IT firm, Platte River Networks, has been under scrutiny for housing former First Lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s servers for her now-infamous private server found to contain state secrets. It hired Andy Boian, CEO of Dovetail Solutions, to help clean up the mess.
Boian was interviewed by FoxNews‘ Greta Van Sustren and Griff Jenkins. He tried to downplay the firm’s political connections, but he tipped his hand during the interview. Jenkins asks Boian why he thinks Platte River Networks was hired to work with Clinton. Hilariously, Boian looks right at Jenkins and says, “And, that I don’t know. I can’t comment on. I don’t know anything about the process. That was before I was involved.”
Despite his two-stepping on the question, he’s literally standing in front of a bookshelf full of books relating to Democratic political candidates, with titles including “The Clinton Years” and “The Democratic Party”.
As the Greta interview rolls, the books behind him reveal someone with a love of all things Democrat. Yet, no IT books. Odd for an IT firm. Even if the interview was shot in Boian’s office, it’s also odd to be interviewed in front of a bookshelf full of Democratic Party books with allegations that the firm was hired because its founder was a Democratic donor.

It’s pretty clear that they have had political clients.
Of course, had Greta and her staff done a quick TRACER search, they would have found that Platte River Networks worked for Rutt Bridges during his short-lived gubernatorial campaign in 2005. (Sorry Greta, still much love for you.) The firm also worked for now-Governor, then-Mayor of Denver John Hickenlooper.
Please remember, PeakNation™, this was right around the time that the Colorado Blueprint ramped up, as the 2006 election saw Republicans absolutely decimated. Bridges was one of the “Gang of Four” funders during this time. Is it possible that this IT firm, while not playing necessarily a strategic role, was a part of the Colorado Democracy Alliance (CoDA)?
We’ll probably never know, but it seems unlikely that this this IT firm was just a random, nonpartisan IT firm plucked from the masses to house Clinton’s servers.
