    Archived comments unearthed by citizen-detectives on Reddit indicate that Paul Combetta -- the tech specialist who deleted Hillary Clinton’s emails from her server -- may have sought advice on the website for how to hide a certain “VIP’s” email address.

    One archived comment from July 24, 2014 – during the same month that the State Department first asked Clinton aide Cheryl Mills to turn over the former secretary of state’s work-related emails from her personal server – shows Reddit user “stonetear” asking others on the site:

    “Hello all- I may be facing a very interesting situation where I need to strip out a VIP's (VERY VIP) email address from a bunch of archived email… Does anyone have experience with something like this, and/or suggestions on how this might be accomplished?”

    So there are incompetent people in government? What's new? At least he asked. Surely that says something positive no?

    I think you've missed the point.

    It's not so much about his incompetence but the fact that it's proof he (and by extension, one of the American presidential nominees) were engaged in some most definitely illegal activities.

    Instead of:

    "Hillary's IT person asks Reddit for help"

    You should be reading:

    "Hillary's IT person asks Reddit for help with illegal activities that implicate them further in what has already been a major scandal for them"

    This proves intent in manipulating emails that were being requested in 2014 by the State Department from the "private email server".

    There are 2 branches in this:

    A) Clinton mishandled top secret classified information from her private email server .. She didn't get indicted because the FBI couldn't find intent .. AKA she wasn't a Russian spy.

    B) Clinton deleted around 33000 emails from the email server using bleachbit, so that they will never be able to be recovered.

    Thanks for info, bro. Saving classified info on her private email server is very risking.

    Not really. It proves that someone using his Reddit account asked for advice. One can not prove that he was typing and one can not prove indent. One can however speculate over the latter two points but not prove.
