Server company: Deleted Clinton emails may be recoverable
Platte River Networks, the company that managed Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonFive landmark moments of testimony to Congress Top diplomat said request for specific probes in Ukraine was 'contrary' to US policy Feehery: What Republicans must do to adapt to political realignment MORE’s private email server, says it has no evidence of the server being wiped, meaning tens of thousands of deleted emails could be recovered, according to the Washington Post.
“Platte River has no knowledge of the server being wiped,” company spokesman Andy Boian said. “All the information we have is that the server wasn’t wiped.”
The former secretary of State and Democratic presidential candidate said she deleted her personal correspondence amounting to 31,000 emails before turning over the server to FBI investigators.
Deleted data can still be restored from a server unless it has been “wiped” – a process that involves overwriting underlying data with gibberish.
A Clinton campaign spokesperson declined to comment to the Post.
It is unclear whether anyone has the authority to restore the emails, even if they could be restored.
Clinton and her staffers have deflected questions as to whether the server had been wiped, on several occasions saying they don’t know what “wiped” means.
The FBI is investigating whether Clinton compromised classified information over the private server during her tenure as secretary of State.
