When Donald Trump was running for president, he promised that he would hold Hillary Clinton accountable for her various criminal activities if he won the election. Now, it appears he is following through with that promise in a big way.
The Daily Caller reported a House Committee is seeking charges against the IT company that managed Clinton’s private email server, referring the matter to the Justice Department for obstruction of justice and making false statements. The referral for Treve Suazo, the CEO of Platte River Networks, was issued by Texas Rep. Lamar Smith, the chairman of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee.
“With a new administration in place, I am hopeful that the Department of Justice will appropriately respond to the referral. We cannot allow companies with valuable information to stonewall us in our oversight efforts,” Smith said in a statement.
Platte River began managing Clinton’s email server in June of 2013, months after she left the State Department. House aides said this week that Platte River “flatly refused” to honor two subpoenas for documents related to its work on Clinton’s server. They added that a Platte River technician, Paul Combetta, received at least 50 alerts about hacking attempts on Clinton’s server originating from Korea, Germany, France and the U.S. His only response to these emails was asking to be removed from the alert system.
Combetta later pleaded the Fifth during a House hearing last September along with Bill Thornton, another technician.
