Employees at the Denver-based IT company that Hillary Clinton hired in 2013 to manage her private email network expressed concern that they were “covering up” something “shady.”
That’s according to a letter sent Monday by Wisconsin U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson to Austin McChord, the CEO of Datto Inc., a Connecticut-based computer cloud storage company.
According to Johnson, who chairs the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, a Clinton family company called the Clinton Executive Services Corp. hired the Denver company, Platte River Networks, on May 31, 2013 to oversee Clinton’s private email network. Platte River in turn hired Datto to create a virtual backup server of Clinton’s emails.
During most of her tenure as secretary of state, Clinton used a server that she housed in her Chappaqua, N.Y. home. But data from that device was transferred to a Datto server controlled by Platte River, which housed the new hardware at a New Jersey data center.
