When the Clinton Corporation paying for Hillary Clinton's tech services requested a change in the duration of the backup to Hillary Clinton's E-mail and private server, techs at Platte River Networks expressed concerns about a cover-up because of the FBI investigation
According to a CNN report --- "Employees at the company that maintained Hillary Clinton's private email server expressed concern among themselves about the way the former secretary of state's team directed them to manage data backups after the FBI started looking into the arrangements, according to emails obtained by a senator.... In a letter obtained by CNN, Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wisconsin, asks Datto, Inc, the makers of Clinton's server back-up system, for information on how her emails were preserved and protected. The FBI has also sought information from the company, according to sources...." (See "Employees at company working with Clinton email server expressed concerns" by Laura Koran and Evan Perez, 10/7/15, CNN [http://www.cnn.com/2015/10/07/politics/hillary-clinton-emails-platte-river-networks/]).
The CNN article by Laura Koran and Evan Perez continued with this: ".... [Senator] Johnson indicates that a 'Clinton family company,' Clinton Executive Service Corp., paid for the back-up services, operated through a device called the Datto SIRIS S2000, and that the purchase was made by Platte River Networks when the server was moved from her private residence to a New Jersey-based data center in 2013.... In the letter, Johnson quotes from emails sent by and to employees at Platte River Networks, which indicate there was discussion about how the duration of data backups could be reduced, apparently at the direction of the Clinton Executive Service Corp...."
HERE'S THE MONEY SHOTThe CNN article then quoted an "unnamed" Platte River employee as follows: ".... Then this past August, a Platte River Networks employee wrote to a coworker that he was, 'Starting to think this whole thing really is covering up some shaddy (sic) s**t.'... 'I just think if we have it in writing that they told us to cut the backups, and that we can go public with our statement saying we have backups since day one, then we were told to trim to 30days (sic), it would make us look a WHOLE LOT better,' the unnamed employee continued...."
The email from the unnamed Platte River employee was sent shortly after it hit the news that the FBI was doing an investigation into the security of Hillary Clinton's server, and months after it was revealed that Clinton exclusively had used her private E-mail account on her private server to conduct State Department business. The Platte River employee indicated in his/her E-mail that Clinton's team asked Platter River to change the back-up duration between October and February, presumably of 2014/2015 [NB: according to the CNN report, those dates aren't explicitly stated in the portion of the E-mail that was included in Senator Johnson's letter].
