Yesterday, two witnesses who worked for Platte River Networks, the Colorado-based firm that managed the Clinton server after Hillary left the State Department, pleaded the Fifth before the House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing titled “Examining Preservation of State Department Records.”
In March of 2015, Paul Combetta and Bill Thornton deleted Clinton’s archives even though they were aware of a court order and a congressional subpoena to preserve the records.
The House Oversight and Reform Committee on Tuesday released an email dated August 19, 2015, that was sent between Platte River Networks employees. The email expressed deep concern over the destruction of the records.
Republican Congressman Jim Jordan pulled up the email during the hearing and said it was from either Combetta or Thornton.
