Backup Server Would Be Very Bad News for Hillary

Hillary’s Following from # 167535By William A. Jacobson

ABC News is now reporting that there may be a backup server.

As I mentioned in prior posts, from the very start Hillary Clinton’s email and server stories were inconsistent and self-contradictory.

We now know that the actual server which ran the email system while Hillary was Secretary of State was taken into the custody of Colorado-based Platte River Networks in or about June 2013, the data was transferred somewhere, the server was wiped clean, and then physically stored in New Jersey.

So what and where was the server Hillary was refusing to turn over in March 2015 that contained personal information? It could not have been the wiped server just turned over the the Feds by Platte River Networks because that server was blank and not under Hillary’s control.

The server with the data had to be somewhere else, as I suggested in How did Hillary’s lawyers search a server no longer in her possession and which had been wiped clean?

Another discrepancy suggesting the existence of a second server was that Hillary’s attorneys in the Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit represented to the court that Hillary did not ask for her attorneys to search her emails on until late 2014.”

But how could they search the emails if the server had been wiped clean over a year earlier and was sitting in a storage facility in New Jersey, unless there was place where all the data resided?

There had to be a second server or at least database somewhere with all the emails in undeleted form. That was the only consistent story, though it was not the story Hillary or her attorneys were telling.

And we may be inching closer to that reality, as Jon Karl at ABC News reports that Platte River Networks has informed the federal government that there likely is a backup of the server.

Why is this potentially huge trouble for Hillary?

Remember, she has staked her entire defense on only truly personal emails (Yoga, Chelsea’s wedding, her mother’s death) being withheld. If that turns out not to be true, Hillary has potentially campaign-ending credibility problems.     (my emphasis)
