Theory: Hillary and Huma Were Using Anthony Weiner's Email Address As a "Digital Drop Box" In Order To Hide Communicate Information Between Each Other, Yet Ensure It's Secrecy
Weasel Zippers reports the following:
Here is an idea given to me by Tammy Swofford.
There's one Theory which could accommodate all of the above statements, under which all of those statements above could all be true at the same time.
Hillary and Huma Abedin could have been using Anthony Weiner's email address - or, even better, a fake "Anthony Weiner" email address only they have access to - as a Digital Drop Box.
A Digital Drop Box is a way for two or more people to communicate with each other, by sharing an email account which all could log onto periodically in order to send and retrieve information.
In a sense, a Digital Drop Box serves as a Virtual Private Network between multiple people.
One can simply write an email - NOT SEND IT - and just let it sit in the Draft File. Then the second person comes along and opens the emails in the Draft File and reads them - they add their two own communication to the Draft, and then the first person can come back and read what the second person had to say.
And such a Digital Drop Box is not limited to two people. It is accessible by as many people as have access to the email password.
Jihadist use these types of Digital Drop Boxes to hide communication from the CIA and other intelligence operations.
An entire office full of people - say the Hillary Clinton State Dept. office for instance - could communicate entirely offline - entirely without using official channels - by using such a Digital Drop Box.
If Hillary and Huma Abedin were using such a Digital Drop Box built off of Anthony Weiner's private email address - or even a email address that was created to look as if it belonged to Anthony Weiner - then all of the above statements would be true.
--- the emails would not be - technically - to or from Hillary Clinton or Huma Abedin ...
--- the correspondence would be to and from Hillary and Huma Abedin
--- the emails would not necessarily have been "from Hillary Clinton's server"
--- the emails could be found stored on a computer belonging to Anthony Weiner ....
All these statements would be true at the same time.
I think Tammy's theory is correct.
Anyone else have any input?
