If you know anything about Hillary Clinton, you know that an unusual number of people with damning information on her have turned up dead under mysterious circumstances. Now, it appears that the Clinton body count has just had yet another name added to it.
Freedom Daily reported that former Marine James Dolan, one of the co-creators of SecureDrop and Freedom of the Press Foundation’s first full time employee, died suddenly over the holidays at the age of 36. Though it is being reported that he committed suicide, his family and friends are saying that he never gave any indication that he would take his own life.
Back in 2012, Dolan teamed up with Aaron Swartz and journalist Kevin Poulsen to create original prototype of SecureDrop, the open source whistleblower submission system, which was then called DeadDrop. It was Dolan who convinced a trio of his industry colleagues to meet with Aaron to review the architecture and, later, the code. It was Dolan and his team that made it so that sources would be able to submit documents anonymously—so that even the media outlets receiving the materials wouldn’t be able to tell the government where they came from.
Of course, this came back to bite Clinton when her emails were leaked to WikiLeaks and then the general public.
Swartz committed suicide five years ago just as the US government was attempting to prosecute him for violating the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act related to allegedly copying academic articles from JSTOR. After his death, Poulsen donated the SecureDrop project to FPF, in the hopes that we could revive it and get it in a place where more news organizations could use it.
This meant that Dolan was then the only person in the world who knew all the ins and outs of the system, how to install it, and how to make it better. It’s awfully convenient for Clinton and her cronies that he would turn up dead suddenly just as the heat is being turned up on her again.
