It’s just a guess, but I’ll bet that there are (at least) two gentlemen who are currently suffering from PAS (Puckered Anus Syndrome). I’m referring to the two top dogs at Platte River Networks, Treve Suazo, CEO, and Brent Allshouse, CFO.
I suspect that they thought that they were linking their fortunes to the next president of the U.S. when they agreed to “handle” Hillary’s secret server. Just think, being “in business” with the (in)famous Hillary Clinton – the First Lady – the Senator – the Secretary of State – a multi-millionaire – and perhaps the next president – wow, what good fortune!
Of course, their participation would have to remain secret – at least until things cooled down, after which they could tout how they performed technical IT services for the one and only President Hillary Clinton. They were given the high honor to be “keepers” of her infamous server. That would be PR that money can’t buy and they would use it to assure new clients that they were an industrial strength operation – after all, they were even trusted by Hillary Clinton. Explosive company growth was on the horizon!
The partners had to have known of Hillary’s background (and reputation) and they certainly would have known about her emails – either through direct discussions or just generally from news reports. They would have known that being “in bed” with Hillary could carry with it both great reward and great danger. It’s obvious that they bet on drawing to an inside straight, not a smart bet.
And now, the plot has thickened.
The FBI has already visited their operation to pick up the server so now PRN is on FBI radar as being in cahoots with Hillary – at least to some extent.
I suspect that it’s time for the Platte River boys to be lawyering up and taking steps to insulate themselves from any toxic fallout resulting from their “arrangement” with Hillary. They could be seen as complicit if the FBI finds any funny business relating to when and who was likely to have wiped the server. Deleting evidence and/or being in possession of highly classified government data could draw PRN into a position of accessory to commit various felonies. They could even be thrown under that humongous Clinton bus and become scapegoats. Would Hillary resort to blaming PRN for any discovered misdeeds if she thought that it’d stick? Does the Pope crap in the woods?
They may come to rue the day that they agreed to perform “services” for Hillary Clinton.
