A Chinese company that claims to have hacked Hillary Clinton’s private server reportedly has a copy of every single email the former presidential candidate sent and received afterward. The Chinese state-owned company inserted a code that forwarded all Hillary’s emails to them, and Donald Trump is already demanding that this is investigated.
According to reporting done by The Daily Caller, the Chinese state-owned firm operating in the Washington D.C. area wrote code that was then embedded in Hillary’s private server and generated a “courtesy copy” for almost all her emails. Those were then forwarded to the Chinese company.
A source briefed on the matter confirmed to Fox News the details of the Daily Caller’s reporting, and said that the ICIG (Intelligence Community Inspector General) was so concerned about the revelation that officials drove over to the FBI to inform agents of the development after it was discovered via the emails’ metadata. One of those agents included the anti-Trump Peter Strzok.
The source told Fox News the hack was from a Chinese company, describing it as a front for Chinese intelligence.

President Donald Trump immediately took to Twitter to announce that some investigating should be done.
“This isn’t the first time we’ve heard similar kinds of allegations,” said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying in response to Trump’s tweets. “China is a staunch defender of cybersecurity. We firmly oppose and crack down on any forms of internet attacks and the stealing of secrets,” she said, according to Reuters.
What’s even more telling, a May 2016 email from Strzok, obtained by Fox News earlier this year, said “we know foreign actors obtained access” to some Clinton emails, including at least one “secret” message “via compromises of the private email accounts” of Clinton staffers.
