UPDATE: Secret Service Laptop Theft TARGETED Hillary Clinton
We reported recently about the theft of a laptop from a Secret Service vehicle.
The story reeked of a scandal, as it seemed the car and possibly the Secret Service agent were targeted.
We now have an update to the story.
As Tyler Durden of Zero Hedge reminds us, this doesn’t appear to be an accident.
Even when Hillary Clinton is no longer running for president, laptop “accidents” continue to follow her.
As regular readers will recall, shortly before the election, the FBI revealed that a laptop containing some of Hillary Clinton’s emails mysteriously disappeared in transit, while several months later, another laptop belonging to Anthony Weiner just as mysteriously was found to contain emails between his then-wife Huma Abedin and her boss, Hillary. The laptop in question prompted the FBI to reopen its probe into Hillary Clinton’s emails just days before the presidential election.
Are people still trying to get to the bottom of Hillary Clinton’s email issue? Let’s hope.
One source says this may have been orchestrated by the Clintons.
The theft appears to have everything to do with Argentieri as a supportive investigator for Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
Evidence of the specific targeting is transparent within the eye witness stories that a car pulled up, a passenger exited the vehicle – went directly to Agent Argentieri’s vehicle, broke in, took the back pack and walked away quickly.
The thief knew exactly what they were looking for, this wasn’t a random heist of convenience.”
I’m not sure I buy this theory, given that the data would still be available on servers, and other agents’ computers.
According to Politico, also stolen were,
“a set of security perimeter pins, a second, personal laptop, and other items…”
Two of the sources said that some items stolen from the vehicle — including a set of lapel pins that allow agents entry into security perimeters around dignitaries protected by the Secret Service — had been recovered in the vicinity soon after the break-in.
The New York Daily News reported that the thief stepped out of a car on a street in Bath Beach. He then stole the laptop from the agent’s vehicle, which was parked in the driveway of her home. Next, he was seen on video walking away from the scene with a backpack.
What will be revealed due to this event, who knows? But it certainly gives fuel to speculation.
