Justin Cooper, the former Clinton Foundation advisor who destroyed two of Hillary Clinton’s Blackberry phones with a hammer and who set up the former Secretary of State’s private servers and email apparently had no security clearance, according to the findings of a congressional committee Tuesday.
According to The Daily Caller ,Clinton aide Justin Cooper turned heads concerning the Department of State records preservation practices during a hearing before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Cooper is the same aide who also sometimes destroyed Clinton’s BlackBerry phones, “breaking them in half or hitting them with a hammer,” the FBI investigative summary report said.
Cooper was a longtime aide of former president Bill Clinton when he helped install Hillary Clinton’s system in 2008 during her first bid for the presidency.
Cooper was the only one witness of four Clinton IT aides or contractors invited to the hearing who both showed up and testified.
Bryan Pagliano, a Clinton IT aide who worked at the State Department and on the Clinton’s personal payroll, defied a congressional subpoena to appear. Bill Thornton and Paul Combetta, the Platte River Networks employees who hosted Clinton’s servers, invoked the Fifth Amendment and told the committee nothing.
