Elder Patriot – Ever wonder what special counsel Robert Mueller and his propaganda arm in the mainstream media would do if they discovered that Donald Trump’s IT expert had been trolling reddit for help with changing the to/from addresses on Trump’s emails?
What would you be ranting about in your padded rooms?
Maybe the posts would look something like this:
Hello all – I may be facing a very interesting situation where I need to strip out a VIP’s (VERY VIP) email address from a bunch of archived email that I have both in a live Exchange mailbox, as well as a .PST file. Basically they don’t want the VIP’s email address exposed to anyone, and want to be able to either strip out or replace the email address in the to/from fields in all of the emails we want to send out.
I am not sure if something like this is possible with PowerShell, or exporting all of the emails to MSG and doing find/replaces with a batch processing program of some sort.
Does anyone have experience with something like this, and/or suggestions on how this might be accomplished?
How devastating would this to be to President Trump? You’d be calling for his immediate impeachment.
But wait, there’s even a warning from one reddit responder who raises the specter of legal implications:
There is no supported way to do what you’re asking. You can only delete emails after they’re stored in the database. You can’t change them. If there was a feature in Exchange that allowed this, it could result in major legal issues.
What if Trump’s IT expert, faced with the fact that he couldn’t hide the VIP’s name from investigators, resorted to the desperate, but necessary next option and deleted them. And, what if then the IT pro used a software program to “scrub” the deleted remnants from the server to make any forensic reconstruction of the emails impossible?
And, what if Trump’s server and the emails were under subpoena at the time?
Trump would be toast. Obstruction of justice would be the least of Trump’s troubles. And, for once, you’d be right.
However, your reaction when you learn that the IT expert who was furiously trying to hide those emails – dozens of which carried classified information – is a man named Paul
Combetta who worked for Hillary Clinton, is equally predictable:
You alibi and disparage the messenger. We can say that because that has been your reaction for over two years since the facts first began surfacing.

From U.S. News:
There are several reasons to believe the reddit user is indeed Combetta, who was granted immunity by the Justice Department during its investigation of Clinton’s private server after he deleted a large number of emails.
The evidence connecting Combetta to the account is circumstantial, but also voluminous. The inactive website combetta.com is registered to the email address [email protected], a search of domain registration information using the service whois.com indicates. An account for a person named Paul Combetta on the web bazaar Etsy also has the username stonetear.
The FBI report that resulted from the investigation says that Cheryl Mills, a longtime Clinton aide and attorney, requested in December 2014 that the email retention policy be shortened to 60 days. The FBI report says Mills “instructed [redacted] to modify the email retention policy on Clinton’s clintonemail.com e-mail account” but that “according to [redacted] he did not make these changes to Clinton’s clintonemail.com account until March 2015.”
The report says the person, essentially identified as Combetta by The New York Times, realized in late March 2015 — after Clinton’s use of a private email account was first reported that month by the Times — that he had not made the retention change and “had an ‘oh sh–‘ moment and sometime between March 25-31, 2015, deleted the Clinton archive mailbox from the [Platte River Networks] server and used BleachBit to delete the exported .PST files he had created on the server system containing Clinton’s emails.”
So snowflakes and pussyhats just accept the fact that Mama Bear Clinton is a corrupt demon who seduced you with the help of the totally corrupt, in the pocket of the corporate elite, mainstream media.
Don’t say you weren’t warned when your world collapses in the coming months. Tick tock.
