Following the stories of Hillary Clinton‘s private email server being tracked to an IT firm in Denver, people have been curious about why such a tiny firm was chosen to hold what could be sensitive information.
The Washington Post reported that Platte River Networks vice president David DeCamillis told them that his firm won a contract in 2013 to provide the Clintons with IT services. He said that no one at the company was told about the material’s secrecy when they accepted their contract, though they now regret being involved.
“It was an e-mail server, that simple,” DeCamillis said. “We would never have taken it on.”
Public relations manager Andy Boian told Bizjournal that the firm heads have never made any political donations, that its not a federal contractor, and that their usual clients do not include political organizations.
On the matter of whether the server had ever been wiped, Boian could not confirm this, only that the information on the server had been transferred to another in New Jersey. DeCamillis said that the company typically launches background checks on clients but did not think that he or his associates had government-level security clearance.
