FBI Ropes in Private Company for Clinton e-mail Probe

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has roped in another private company into the probe of security breach pertaining to Hillary Rodham Clinton’s e-mail. The company will help FBI with restoring data.

The data hence retrieved is expected to bring in vital clues for the investigating agency. The Democratic Presidential front-runner has been too much into trouble over the email.

The company named Datto was officially roped in on Tuesday when the Republican Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee sent wrote a letter to it. The matter went public after the letter seeking data was sent across.

Datto has been roped in to retrieve the data backups. The e-mail account was created in May 2013 by Platte River Networks.

The FBI has been investigating trying to determine as to whether classified information has been stored and transmitted through Clinton’s server in a distinguished manner.

“Datto is working with the FBI to provide data in conjunction with its investigation. Datto had received consent to turn over data from the Clintons and from Platte River.,” said Michael Fass, general counsel at Datto.

Another official said that the FBI will be receiving a “node,” which is a hardware part of the company. This hardware had allowed the company to store data on its cloud.

Brian Fallon, a spokesman for the Clinton campaign, alleged that Johnson was responsible for ripping a page from the House Benghazi Committee’s playbook.
