"Now WHERE did I put those emails....?"
So where are Mrs. Bill Clinton's emails?
Until two months ago—that's almost two-and-a-half YEARS after the Benghazi attacks, the answer was "none of your damn business." But thanks to court challenges and this little thing called the "rule of law," Hillary finally handed over some of her emails as Secretary of State.
It was only two months ago, in response to a new State Department effort to comply with federal record-keeping practices, that Mrs. Clinton’s advisers reviewed tens of thousands of pages of her personal emails and decided which ones to turn over to the State Department. All told, 55,000 pages of emails were given to the department. Mrs. Clinton stepped down from the secretary’s post in early 2013.So where are the ones her staff decided not to release? Where are ALL of Hillary's emails actually located?
The sunny shores of the British Virgin Islands. [Where the owner named New Rodino (Russian for motherland) of the Pimlico flat of murdered MI-6 spy Gareth Williams was registered]
That's what tech geek D. Keith Casey Jr of Casey Software tells me. He traced the location of the servers the emails where handled by to a building in Road Town, BVI. Here's what he sent me:
Domain, as stated by WaPo: ClintonEmail.com which resolves to an IP address 18.104.22.168
- Using 22.214.171.124 with iplocation.net gives the physical location of that server as the British Virgin Islands. It's owned by Confluence Networks, Inc.
- If you take the phone numbers from http://confluence-networks.xxx the abuse numbers are from New York & Austin while the Tech support number is San Francisco, Ca. It's pretty clear they're all in the US. The street address for the Austin number is 4100 Smith School Rd which is about 10 miles from me. But it's just an anonymous data center or warehouse according to Google Street View.
- Using 126.96.36.199 with http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/web-sites-on-web-servxxx gives you a ton of other sites that have landing pages on the same server. Lots seem defunct but not all of them. The ones that are live are mostly spam.
- Looking up ClintonEmail.com to get the MX records (where the email actually goes), gives another IP: 188.8.131.52 which appears to be in Englewood, CO owned by a company MXLogic which was acquired by McAfee - http://www.emailsecurity.mxxxSo the actual servers getting the Secretary of State's security reports on Libya, for example, are outside the US? Wow. And not exactly in a savory server neighborhood. It turns out that the host, Confluence Networks was on a "Top 10 Worst Hosts" list for suspicious/scam activity:
Since 2009, HostExploit's World Hosts Report (formerly Top 50 Bad Hosts) has been examining all 44,000+ publicly-routed Autonomous Systems in the world, gathering data on infected websites, botnets, spam and other activity, before combining the research with trusted community sources and to arrive at a reliable analysis of the results.Also on this server: The domain name www.blondpussycams.com So all you lovers of light-colored cats have something in common with the Clintons, too!
Casey did some more digging:
The more interesting part is the McAfee email aspect. Do they conform with the DoS requirements? It says they can keep all the backups for a fee, are they keeping those? There was a 2008 ruling that said *all* correspondence must be kept by the Feds but her staffers (aka not DoS employees) only turned over some of the messages.He's right. This is the "interesting aspect." And it's why, as Congressman Trey Gowdy points out, "the State Department cannot certify that they have produced all of former Secretary Clinton's emails because they do not have all of former Secretary Clinton’s emails, nor do they control access to them."
How odd that the Secretary of State would be sending her emails 1598 miles away from Washington, DC (and 5,000 miles from Benghazi, by the way)? Maybe it's time for Congressman Gowdy to take a field trip to the Caribbean…
