Austin Steinbart is an American IT specialist, investigator and independent contractor for the Defense Intelligence Agency. His focus for the past 6 years has been to compile a comprehensive set of evidence to expose what he has labeled as a global “syndicate” of corrupt actors who, in part, work in concert with the CIA and FBI to perpetrate and cover up crimes, respectively. His investigation, labeled the “Amorphous Archive”, was stored on the servers of a data-backup and cybersecurity company called Datto, which has been implicated in the illegal erasure of Hillary Clinton’s missing emails.
For unknown reasons and without warning, Datto removed Steinbart’s access to the “Amorphous Archive”, effectively stealing their client’s information and breaking a contractual agreement with Steinbart to host his information. When a campaign of constitutionally-protected public activism was organized, as a means of putting pressure on Datto to reverse their unlawful decision, the corporation’s lawyers contacted the FBI claiming they were the victim of a crime of extortion.
Subsequent actions against Steinbart also remain entirely unclear, as the FBI decided to raid his home with a dozen combat-ready officers, taking with them, among many items, all of his electronic devices and arresting Steinbart in the process. Thus began a 6 month cycle of Steinbart being arrested and imprisoned multiple times for allegedly violating the conditions of this pre-trail release while he waited for an arraignment date from the court.
