Richard Higbie is a Diplomatic Security Service criminal investigator. Last June he was one of the whistle-blowers who came forward about several cover-ups by the State Department under Hillary Clinton’s reign.
Now, he is being targeted; his personal e-mail account has been hacked in and four years of emails have been completely deleted. According to NY Post, Higbie’s lawyer, Cary Schulman, said, “Obviously, somebody is not happy with something he’s doing and wanted to get that information and also cause him an inability in the future to have ready access to that.”
An investigation is still underway to determine who performed the attack, but Schulman said the targeted attack was both “alarming” and “sophisticated.”
NY Post writes:
The e-mails included evidence about misconduct by top officials at the department, communications with other potential whistleblowers there, and correspondence with members of Congress who are investigating the allegations, Schulman said.
They also include correspondence between Higbie and Schulman about legal strategy, the lawyer said.
Schulman said he could not provide details about the evidence deleted with the e-mails. […]
Higbie played a key role in helping fellow whistleblower Aurelia Fedenisn, a former investigator for the department’s inspector general, reveal in June a pattern of alleged coverups by top department officials.
The alleged coverups included keeping quiet separate IG investigations that found that members of then-Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton’s security detail had engaged hookers and that the Belgian ambassador had solicited underage prostitutes.
These were among a string of investigations by the service, responsible for protecting dignitaries and investigating crimes within the department, that were allegedly derailed by senior officials, including one instance of interference by Clinton Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills.
Since the revelations in June, the department again mostly swept the cases under the rug.
Higbie is not the only one of this duo to have important information stolen from them. Schulman was the victim of a burglary last July — one month after Higbie and others came forward about these cover-ups by the State Department.
The burglar sawed a hole through the wall from an adjoining office and stole three computers, but left behind other valuables.
Although cops arrested a petty thief for the crime, Schulman said, “We feel like we’re in a movie. It’s nuts. It makes us wonder . . . . maybe we’ve got something we don’t even realize or maybe they’re worried about something.”
The investigation is still being performed, but considering these attacks surround secret information about the scandalous State Department under Hillary Clinton and the great likelihood that she will make a bid for the presidency, one has to wonder if the motivation behind these attacks is to ensure Hillary has an easier, scandal-free run for the White House. It is not all that far-fetched to consider when people (like the New York Times) are already trying to protect her.
Thankfully, there are others, like Higbie, who are actually committed to the truth.
