A new admission by the State Department shows massive amounts of computer data were stolen from the National Archives.
The stolen data contains social security numbers, dates of birth and politically sensitive information – even classified documents – from former President Bill Clinton’s White House records.
News of the theft follows release of State Department emails connected to Hillary Clinton that were previously deleted. The theft happened in 2009 when she was secretary of state.
Officials confirmed the hard-drive theft was so large they are unsure what all was stolen.
“Two terabytes is a very very large amount of data; the drive may contain a wide range of memos, emails, and other electronic documents from the Clinton White House,” wrote Blake Roberts, deputy associate White House counsel for President Obama. “All the material is unclassified, except for three documents which Bill Leary has examined and does not believe present any significant risk.”
Data loss at this level is serious even in small amounts, much less untold numbers of files and information.
“Based on its analysis, NARA (National Archives) believes the drive contains other sensitive material, including: There is at least a 50% likelihood that the personal information (including DOB and SSN) of all individuals placed through the Clinton Presidential Personnel Office was on the lost hard drive,” wrote Roberts. “There is a 90% likelihood that the personal information (including DOB and SSN) of all Clinton WH staff was on the lost hard drive. There is a 100% chance that some of it was on the lost hard drive.”
Hillary Clinton was informed of the data theft soon after she was sworn in as secretary of state. Her former attorney, Cheryl Mills, sent her an email. That email was made public by the State Department in an ongoing release of recovered emails that had been previously deleted from Clinton’s private server, according to Polizette.
“The drive may contain a wide range of memos, emails, and other electronic documents from the Clinton White House.”
All the revelations about Hillary Clinton’s email server keep painting a truer picture showing her web of deceit. She knowingly deleted emails from her private server that could negatively affect her campaign for president.
Her private email server never should have existed. All the problems from it are her doing, her fault.
Hillary Clinton’s lifelong campaign of self-interest and corruption needs to come to an end on election day.
