Daily Reminder: Hillary’s IT guy, u/stonetear, was caught asking how to destroy evidence on Reddit. He received immunity, like most of Hillary’s underlings, even though he lied to investigators
Paul Combetta, a.k.a. u/stonetear, was one of two Platte River Networks (PRN) employees actively managing Clinton’s private server during her tenure as Secretary of State.
In July, 2014, the State Department requested that Clinton provide all her work-related emails, including the e-mails on her private server, as part of an investigation.
On July 24, 2014, Combetta went to Reddit for help on behalf of his “VERY VIP” client, asking how to strip an e-mail address “from a bunch of archived email(s)…”. Although it is usually assumed that it was Hillary’s address that Combetta wanted to remove, some people speculate that it was actually Obama’s.
When Combetta’s Reddit account was discovered in 2016, Combetta frantically deleted his entire post history, along with his account.
Even though Combetta destroyed evidence and lied to investigators, the DOJ never revoked the immunity they granted him in exchange for truthful testimony. No one was ever prosecuted in relation to Hillary’s illegal private server.
