Three people appeared before the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee to testify.
Two were Paul Combetta and Bill Thornton, from Platte River Networks (PRN), (Denver-based IT business chosen to maintain Hillary's email server after she resigned as Secretary of State).
Both PRN executives took the 5th amendment for all questions.
The third person was Justin Cooper, a Bill Clinton aide who originally set up Hillary's private email address.
Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) asked a question about an email exchange between two PRN employees concerned the Clintons were up to no good.
According to Chaffetz, the following email exchange occurred between Combetta and an unidentified PRN staff member on 8/19/15:
"Wondering how we can sneak an email in now, after the fact, asking them (the Clintons) when they told us to cut the (email) backups and have them confirm it (in writing) for our records. Starting to think this whole thing is really covering up some shady shit."
"I just think if we have it in writing that they told us to cut the backups, then we can go public with our statement saying we've had the backup since day one when we were told to trim to 30 days would make us look a whole lot better."
