NEWS: The metadata in Hillary Clinton's emails contained a Gmail address with the name of a Chinese company: "carterheavyindustries@gmail.com" according to documents released by a Senate committee yesterday.
Jeannette McMillian, an attorney for the intelligence community inspector general (ICIG), told Congress that this email with the name of a Chinese company appeared to serve as a "live dropbox" for all of Clinton's emails.
McMillian told Congress that the Carter Heavy Industries email address in the Clinton-email metadata was set up to receive a copy of every email sent and received as they were sent, even if the intended addressee was different.
The FBI obtained a search warrant for CarterHeavyIndustries@gmail.com on June 20, 2016, roughly 2 weeks before Comey exonerated Clinton.

Prior to securing the warrant, the FBI already knew that 57 emails classified at the confidential level and 1 emails classified at the secret level were still sitting on the server. This is after Combetta used it to sync 30,490 Clinton emails.
Under the search warrant for CarterHeavyIndustries@gmail.com, the FBI requested access to log-in and IP logs, along with a load of other info.
Despite the FBI having all this information from Google, the DOJIG, in the Aug. 14, 2019 letter, told the Senate only about logins into CarterHeavyIndustries@gmail.com from 2015 and 2016.

Who logged in in 2014? What about prior to that?

Initial article on this topic covers the nuances:

- Gmail account name was similar to a Chinese manufacturer
- Account created by Paul "Bleachbit" Combetta
- Peter Strzok at FBI got this lead, appeared "dismissive" at briefing
- and more

For some of the reasons above, Rep. Louie Gohmert told me he doesn't buy the DOJIG/FBI version of events.

The documents the above is based on were dropped silently by Sen. Chuck Grassley.


Paul Combetta allegedly used CarterHeavyIndustries@gmail.com in early 2014 to transfer Clinton's emails.

What else was happening at that time? An aide to John Kerry spotted Clinton's private email address in productions to Congress.

@PetrSvab The copy of the emails which Combetta provided to the FBI came from the archive he created using CarterHeavyIndustries@gmail.com

He had the option of providing the version of the emails from the live folders on the PRN server which he synced months prior to archive transfer.
