In the wormhole that is the Hillary Clinton email scandal, the burrowing has deepened into an unknown space-time continuum. News broke yesterday that Paul Combetta, the Platte River Networks technician working for Hillary Clinton’s IT provider, was a fan of Reddit, a social news aggregation and discussion website. Combetta, also the technician who pleaded the Fifth about wiping Clinton's server clean, is now suspected of reaching out to the tech community on Reddit about covering the tracks of a certain VIP.
"I'm telling you right now, if Hillary Clinton is elected, she will either retire due to health, or she will be impeached her first term. This is all mounting. You know what this feels like? This feels like Watergate," Glenn said Tuesday on his radio program.
That would be an unfortunate similarity for Clinton, as Richard Nixon resigned the presidency following the Watergate scandal.
Read below or listen to the full segment for answers to this cornucopia of questions:
• Who had more pre-scandal popularity --- Hillary Clinton or Richard Nixon?
• If elected, will we see a second President Clinton impeached?
• Should I post on a public forum about covering my tracks?
• Is "stonetear" a clever name for a Reddit user, city street or Etsy account?
• Can you make money crocheting in a jail cell?
• How VIP is very VIP?
• Are there more emails that prove Hillary sold guns to ISIS?
• Does anyone in the media like Hillary?
• How does President Kaine sound?
Listen to this segment, beginning at mark 2:25, from The Glenn Beck Program:
Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:
GLENN: I'm telling you right now, if Hillary Clinton is elected, she will either retire due to health, or she will be impeached her first term. This is all mounting. You know what this feels like? This feels like Watergate. The election right before the Watergate scandal. Remember, Pat? You are old enough to remember. Watergate felt just like this. Everyone knew he had done something wrong, but his own supporters were arguing, "There's no proof of this. There's no way he did that. Move on. You're just trying to -- whatever.
STU: Go out on a limb and say that she does not carry 49 states, however.
GLENN: Did he carry 49 states?
STU: Right. Wasn't it 49? Yeah. It was 49 states against McGovern, right? '72?
STU: Yeah, he lost Massachusetts.
STU: And DC.
GLENN: Right. So she's not going to carry the 49 states. She won't be as popular as Nixon was.
STU: Actually, not -- not DC. Sorry. There was that one unfaithful elector that voted for the Libertarian in that election. But it was a blowout. Let's -- electoral count 520 to 17.
GLENN: Okay. Holy cow. Holy cow.
STU: That's amazing.
PAT: Good thing he broke into the hotel to find out his campaign strategy.
GLENN: Yeah, couldn't beat that guy.
PAT: Wow. That was razor-thin.
STU: Yeah, Massachusetts and DC. That's it.
GLENN: And we even do have Russia hacking in to find her campaign strategy. This is 1972 all over again. And she's not going to make it. Look at the scandals that are coming out today. By the way, more on the IRS scandal too. Did you see this? Democratic documents now have been leaked, where Democratic senators were saying, "How can we not just go arrest these guys? We got to go arrest these Tea Party people." And it was a conversation between senators and the IRS. "Why can't you go out and get these guys?"
GLENN: I mean, it's bad.
Okay. So let's see. Tell me how she survives. We'll put the DHS scandal off to the side here. Tell me how she survives just these two. Just these two. Because, remember, the press hates her.
Once you have Donald Trump out of the way -- this is the press' thinking -- once you have Donald Trump out of the way, they don't like her. They will -- she will be the bad guy. She will be the bad guy.
GLENN: She will not be able to get anything done. Nothing!
Listen to this: Hillary's IT guy wouldn't talk to Congress, but now Reddit has posts that they say are his. And it's circumstantial evidence, but the circumstantial evidence is pretty -- pretty amazing.
Let's see: We're in weird times. 2016. This is Reddit. It was only about a month ago before her collapse at a 9/11 event that asking about Hillary Clinton's health put one firmly in the deplorable conspiracy theorist basket, at least according to many in the mainstream media.
So it's best to tread lightly when approaching the news that Paul Combetta, a technician with Hillary's IT provider, Platte HEP River Networks, left behind a few incriminating crumbs on the internet, ironically when asking about how to cover someone else's tracks.
Have you heard this?
STU: One way not to cover your tracks is to post on a public forum about covering tracks.
GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Hey, can somebody help me out?
Let's just for now, that the US News HEP and World Report has taken an interest, as has Major HEP Garrett of CBS News. US News staff writer Steven Nelson notes the requests match neatly with publicly known dates related to Clinton's use of a private server while Secretary of State.
How soon before the cable and broadcast networks pick up the story? Never.
Reddit calls itself the front page of the internet, which might sound like an empty boast for those not familiar with the site. It's a huge discussion board, covering every topic in existence. It's ugly as sin, with none of the candy-colored buttons or graphical trappings of a HEP Web 2.0 or whatever web now we're on, which makes it a paradise for computer nerds and geeks of all stripes. Ask anything and someone will answer.
Some are claiming to have evidence that Combetta, who is reportedly the technician who, oops, obliterated Hillary Clinton's email archive using BleachBit HEP software and then pleaded the Fifth before the House Oversight Committee last week, popped onto a Reddit discussion board in 2014 to ask how to remove or replace -- this is quoting -- the to and from address on archived emails.
A lot of theory depends on attaching Combetta to the user name stonetear. Is it stonetier or tear? But it looks like internet detectives have now done just that. A good thing people captured screens while they could. It looked like stonetear's Reddit history has been wiped like with a cloth or something.
STU: And in realtime, as they were discovering this. So like people were like, "Wait a minute. Is this the guy?" And started talking about it. And as they were doing it, they would refresh the screen, and there would be less posts this guy had because he was deleting them as they were doing it. That's how -- and, you know, the circumstantial evidence is pretty interesting. This guy does have accounts on other websites with this name. You know, it's from a couple years ago.
STU: And he, I believe, has a house that is on that street.
GLENN: Right. And he is -- he went to a wedding with a friend. And what is it? Let's see here.
This image confirms stonetear user name, Hillary, Paul Combetta, he's granted immunity, blah, blah.
But he was at a -- he was at a party of some sort, and it's him with a friend. And they're like, "Look how tall stonetear is."
GLENN: Oops. You might want to be a little more clever with your names.
STU: He also has an Etsy page.
GLENN: Yes, that's right.
STU: So in case you want to order arts and crafts, you can apparently do that.
JEFFY: Crocheting in the cell?
GLENN: So what he did was --
PAT: Didn't he say something about I'm deleting for a very --
GLENN: Yes. I am --
PAT: I can't say anything, but whose husband used to be president.
GLENN: Of another -- of a company.
STU: Here's the quote: I may be facing a very interesting situation where I need to strip out a VIP, parentheses, very VIP -- in capitals -- email address from a bunch of archived email.
PAT: She's a Democrat, and it's rumored she may run for president.
GLENN: I mean, it is almost -- it is -- you could almost convince me this is a setup. Is this guy that stupid?
STU: I mean, I don't know enough about Reddit to know if you can back date posts. I would think the answer to that is no, or that that would have been pointed out in any of these articles. But that's the only thing that makes any sense.
GLENN: And it correlates. They ask for something. And that day, he goes on and posts on Reddit. I mean, all of the dates -- this is why US News, World Report, this is what they're doing. They notice all of the dates fit exactly with him.
STU: Right. And this is the guy who had the OS moment. Oh, crap moment. That has been described in the testimony. And so in March 2015, he had to implement a 60-day email retention policy. But he had -- he theoretically was supposed to do that earlier and forgot. So later on came to do it.
And the dates with his posts about a 60-day email retention policy line up with when he initially posted about it.
So like, it was initially supposed to happen in December. He posted about it in December, but then forgot to do it until March. But he posted about it at the time when they were discussing it. And, again, like, I don't know, could a hacker do this? Go back and --
GLENN: I don't know. I don't know.
STU: I don't know. Maybe. I just don't know the site well enough.
But, I mean, if these things exist, none of the media sources covering it are pointing it out. Like if you could backdate posts or if you could go in and somehow manipulate the boards --
GLENN: Right. Is there anybody who is, you know, expert enough on this to be able to tell us, can you back-date stuff? You would think that that would have been one of the first things people would have said.
STU: Right. I got to imagine that's not true. And, you know, it's amazing. Because this is the guy who used BleachBit to get rid of these --
GLENN: Right. And didn't he also do something on Reddit about BleachBit?
STU: I don't know -- I think that was his initial ask was about how to remove --
GLENN: BleachBit. I mean, this is crazy. So this is all coming undone.
Now, let me give you another one. Now he's announcing that Hillary Clinton and her State Department -- this is a political insider. WikiLeaks confirms that Hillary sold weapons to ISIS.
He's announcing now -- insider -- that Hillary Clinton and her State Department were actively arming Islamic jihadists, which includes the Islamic State in Syria.
Clinton has repeatedly denied these claims, including during multiple statements while under oath in front of the United States Senate. WikiLeaks is about to prove that Hillary deserves to be arrested.
In Obama's second term, the Secretary of State authorized the shipment of American made arms to Qatar, a country beholden to the Muslim Brotherhood, to the friendly Libyan rebels, in an effort to topple the Libyan Gadhafi government, and then ship those arms to Syria in order to fund al-Qaeda and topple Assad in Syria.
I just want you to know, this is exactly what we said they were doing four days after Benghazi. Do you remember?
GLENN: We said they were trying to get all of those American arms back out of the arms of the people that they gave them to. And that's why they were there. They were making deals with warlords to try to get those armaments back. And then they were shipping them over to Syria through Turkey.
Gee. Who was right?
Clinton took the lead role in organizing the so-called Friends of Syria to back the CIA-led insurgency for regime change in Syria.
That explains why they were protected by the CIA and nobody else.
Under oath, Hillary Clinton denied she knew about the Weapon's shipments. In an interview with Democracy Now, WikiLeaks' Julian Assange is now stating that 1700 emails contained in the Clinton cache directly connect Hillary to Libya, to Syria, and directly to al-Qaeda and ISIS.
Here's the transcript. Let's see here. Let me see if I can just get the Julian Assange.
WikiLeaks has become the rebel Library of Alexandria. It's the single most significant collection of information that doesn't exist elsewhere in searchable and accessible, citable form about how modern institutions actually behave. And it's going on to set people free from prison, where documents have been used in their court cases to hold the CIA accountable for rendering programs, feed into election cycles, which have resulted in the termination of some cases or contributed to the termination of governments. In some cases, taken the heads of intelligence agencies, ministers of defense, and so on. So you know, our civilizations can only be as good as the knowledge of what our civilization is. We can't possibly hope to reform what we don't understand.
So those Hillary Clinton emails, they connect together with the cables that we have published of Hillary Clinton, creating a rich picture of how Hillary Clinton performs in office. But more broadly, how the US Department of State operates. For example, the absolutely disastrous intervention in Libya, the destruction of the Gadhafi government, which led to the occupation of ISIS, of large segments of that country, weapons flows going over to Syria, being pushed by Hillary Clinton into jihadists within Syria, including ISIS. That's there in the emails.
There's more than 1700 emails in Hillary Clinton's collections that we have released just about Libya alone.
How does she survive?
STU: Well, I mean, in normal circumstances, right? The Democrat just gets -- they lay down cover and they survive from the media.
GLENN: And they're going to lay down cover for the next 50 days.
GLENN: Once that's over -- once the bogeyman is gone, she has no more cover. I'm telling you, if she wins, she's a one-term president that is either impeached or leaves because of health reasons. You're looking at President Kaine.
PAT: She won't be impeached, I don't think.
GLENN: I think it will mount and she will do exactly what Nixon did. She won't want to be -- both Clintons being impeached from office? No way.
PAT: Yeah, they wouldn't want that label.
GLENN: They would not want that. It's over. And that's not even counting the Clinton Global Initiative. That thing is so dirty. They haven't even started on that yet.
PAT: Do people care?
GLENN: Yes, they do.
PAT: You think they do?
GLENN: Yes, I do. I think not now. Not now. Because we're in the political fog of war.
GLENN: But once -- once the --
PAT: Like if she wins, you think they will care?
GLENN: Yes, they will. Because they will like Kaine more than Hillary. They don't like Hillary. And they'll want her to pay a price. They're not going to let her get away with it.
JEFFY: Bill already explained the Foundation issue, right? I mean, people did give money. They probably expected to get some kind of influence. But, hey, the State Department -- he expected the State Department to do what was right.
PAT: Of course, he did.
GLENN: Right. And they were expecting him to do right.
