Hillary Clinton’s 33,000 missing emails may have not been permanently deleted after all.

But as the New York Post reports, the emails likely exist in several locations and could be recovered by federal authorities if a grand jury is impaneled.

In May, an executive with the company that maintained Clinton’s private email server told FBI agents that the subpoenaed emails weren’t permanently remove.

The Post writes:

Unless one of Clinton’s aides had the capability to log in to the PRN server as an administrator and remove a mailbox, her archived mailboxes more than likely still reside somewhere in that system. And they may also materialize on an internal “shared drive” that PRN created to control access to the Clinton email accounts among PRN employees. PRN has been under FBI order to preserve all emails and other evidence since the start of its investigation last year.

Clinton’s missing “personal” emails may also be captured on a Google server. According to FBI notes, Combetta “transferred all of the Clinton email content to a personal Google email address he created.” Only the FBI never subpoenaed Google to find out.

The FBI documents also reveal that Hillary’s server was mirrored on a cloud server in Pennsylvania maintained by Datto Inc., a tech firm that performs cloud-to-cloud data protection.

Cane, a Secret Service dog, became unsettled at 7:15 p.m. on Oct. 22, 2014.

“’Cane, buddy—what is up with you?” his handler asked him.

At 7:16 p.m., a man jumped the White House fence, and the dog’s handler yelled out for the unwanted intruder to stop or he’d unleash the canine, Mens Journal reported, citing Maria Goodavage’s book, “Secret Service Dogs.”

After the intruder ignored the commands, another dog named Jadan lunged at the man, biting him in the stomach. Later, the man kicked Jadan in the head.

Another dog, Hurricane, was let loose, and he grabbed the intruder’s knee. But the man repeatedly punched Hurricane.

Then Jadan came rushing back, biting the man.

“OK, I’m done! Get the dogs off of me!” the intruder called out.

Neither dog was seriously injured, but the intruder and threat were stopped.

ICE Urges Justice Department to Reopen Privatized Facilities for Illegal Immigrants

Immigration and Custom’s Enforcement is urging the Justice Department to reopen at least two privatized facilities to help house an influx of illegal immigrants.

ICE says it needs up to 5,000 beds to house a record number of immigrants being detained and deported by the Obama administration, according to U.S. News and World Report.

Among consideration are at least three privately owned detention centers, including troubled facilities in Youngstown, Ohio, and Cibola County, New Mexico.

The Justice Department has sought to curtail its use of private prison because of an inspector general’s report that found higher rates of safety and security incidents.

“They simply do not provide the same level of correctional services, programs and resources; they do not save substantially on costs; and as noted in a recent report by the Department’s Office of Inspector General, they do not maintain the same level of safety and security,” Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates wrote in a memo to federal officials. “This is the first step in the process of reducing – and ultimately ending – our use of privately operated prisons.”

ICE spokeswoman Jennifer Elzea declined to comment on negotiations with the Justice Department.

“ICE remains committed to providing a safe and humane environment for all those in its custody,” Elzea says. “ICE’s civil detention system reduces transfers, maximizes access to counsel and visitation, promotes recreation, improves conditions of confinement and ensures quality medical, mental health and dental care.”

A Border Patrol agent was injured when someone hurled a concrete block at him while he tried to apprehend an illegal immigrant.

The agent spotted a man on surveillance video unlawfully crossing the border. When he pursued the suspect, someone across the border struck the agent on the shoulder with a concrete block.

“While in the process of apprehending the man, the agent was struck on the shoulder by a block of concrete, approximately four inches in diameter, that was thrown over the border fence by an unknown assailant in Mexico,” CBP said in a press release. “The agent suffered soft tissue contusions, but was not seriously injured and declined medical treatment.”

Since Oct. 1, seven border patrol agents were assaulted while working for the El Centro Sector.

A bus that crashed into a semi-truck near Palm Springs, killing 13 people Sunday, was using tires that were too worn by industry standards, federal official announced Tuesday.

It’s not yet clear whether the tires contributed to the crash, the Orange County Register reports. 

Because of the tires, the bus would have been “placed out of service” if it had been inspected, said board member Earl Weener said at a news conference.

Four of the eight tires lacked enough tread to comply with the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance.

Investigators also are reviewing the bus’s braking system.

The 59-year-old driver was among 13 killed.
