Back in 2009, just as Hillary Clinton was newly sworn in as secretary of state, Cheryl Mills sent an e-mail informing her friend that a two-terabyte drive full of President Bill Clinton’s White House records had been swiped from the National Archives.
President Obama’s deputy associate counsel Blake Roberts said, “Two terabytes is a very, very large amount of data; the drive may contain a wide range of memos, emails, and other electronic documents from the Clinton White House.”
Roberts continued: “Based on its analysis, NARA (National Archives) believes the drive contains other sensitive material, including: There is at least a 50% likelihood that the personal information (including DOB and SSN) of all individuals placed through the Clinton Presidential Personnel Office was on the lost hard drive. There is a 90% likelihood that the personal information (including DOB and SSN) of all Clinton WH staff was on the lost hard drive. There is a 100% chance that some of it was on the lost hard drive."
There were three classified documents on it, as well, but Roberts doesn’t believe that presents “any significant risk.”
No one seems to have an answer as to why the drive was stolen eight years after Mr. Clinton left office but it is curious that it was stolen at the beginning of a new administration which involved his wife as secretary of state.
As Lifezette noted, Bill Clinton’s national security adviser Sandy Berger stole documents from the National Archives in 2003 by sneaking them out in his socks and storing them at his workplace. He pleaded guilty in 2005 but didn’t spend a day in prison.
This news came to light in newly released State Department e-mails that continue to show how inept the Clintons are at handling government secrets.
