Employees at a technology firm hired to control Hillary Clinton's private email traffic reveal they knew the records they were going to handle contained sensitive information, according to new emails released, the Washington Examiner reports.

SECNAP Network Security Corp., who had been hired by Clinton's crew to provide cybersecurity to the server managed by Platte River Networks along with a third organization, Datto. Inc., have denied knowing the level of sensitivity of the records they handled and deleted, reports the Examiner.

The House Science, Space & Technology Committee have accessed emails that prove otherwise. The emails show SECNAP required "background checks" and "security credentials" for those employees who worked on Clinton's email network.

The emails also show that SECNAP was asked to maintain a "limit" on the number of employees who could monitor Clinton's email traffic.

Under very suspicious circumstances, Infograte, a consulting organization which offers technology solutions, was briefly hired by the Clintons to help them find a firm that could take care of the "clintonemail.com" network after Clinton left the State Department.

Only two people were allowed to alter the settings of the system, and most of its employees "would not know their name[s]."

The "two folks" who were to take charge were "very tenured employees" in whom the organization had immense confidence and trust.

The previously undisclosed emails pointed towards a Clinton consultant who wanted to get assurance on "how much of the body of the email we can limit" for potential cybersecurity threats.

According to the Examiner, in nearly two years of Clinton camp's association with SECNAP before the server was taken offline, dozens of attempted breaches had been registered. One assurance which Clinton's consultant received from executive Dale Sigarnywas that his staff could "adjust [the email settings] so all we see is the To & From & Date."

According to the new emails, employees involved in the management of Clinton's network were aware that Clinton's emails could contain highly sensitive or classified information.

Previous reports suggest that nearly all witnesses questioned by the FBI during its investigation denied being aware at that time about classified emails that ended up on Clinton's unauthorized server.
