In an apparent triumph for collaborative reporting, reddit discovers apparent posts of an IT worker given immunity.
An army of reddit users believes it has found evidence that former Hillary Clinton computer specialist Paul Combetta solicited free advice regarding Clinton’s private email server from users of the popular web forum.
A collaborative investigation showed a reddit user with the username stonetear requested help in relation to retaining and purging email messages after 60 days, and requested advice on how to remove a “VERY VIP” individual’s email address from archived content.
The requests match neatly with publicly known dates related to Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state.
Stonetear has deleted the posts, but before doing so, the pages were archived by other individuals.
“ARCHIVE EVERYTHING YOU CAN!!!!” a person wrote on a popular thread on the Donald Trump-supporting subreddit r/The_Donald, as the entries disappeared.
