    Complete failure to understand the issues. Using a private email isn't illegal. Using it to conduct the official business is, and its super illegal to.put classified information on one. Both of which your article clearly states there's no evidence for. Right before it says that the Obama administration was super transparent because they used White lawyers.

    I wonder, do you feel some doubts that they won't use it to put classified information or conduct official business there? Or are you expecting that it will happen eventually?

    If/when that happens, I hope they're nailed to the wall.

    But, in general, being concerned that government officials have personal or even outside government organization email accounts strikes me as waaaay to far down the paranoia slide.

    And, to clarify, I have zero fucks that Clinton had a private email server. I have some fucks that she used it to conduct official business. I have all the fucks that she put classified info on it. This is because, when I held a clearance, having personal email wasn't an issue, I'd get into trouble for using it for work, and I'd be put in jail if I had classified info on it. No questions, no "too stupid to realize the magnitude of my fuckup" defense, just jail.

    That missing word really changes things, doesn't it?

    This.

    It was never about having private email accounts - why would I, or anyone, care if HRC was emailing baby pictures to friends? I'm not even that concerned if official government work crossed over on occasion - happens to all of us - as long as it was, in the long run, filed where it was supposed to be filed. No, HRC's problem was having even the whiff of classified material on there and then getting nothing but a warning ticket...

    It was never about emails. It was about Hilary Clinton.

    For you, maybe. For me, it was about getting away with things the plebs would be thrown in jail for. Petraeus pissed me off, too.

    We created a culture so they called [White lawyers] for guidance all the time.
    Brackets usually mean that something else was replaced, by the writer or editor. It makes no sense the way it's published.

    @Yablo: I think there's something wrong with your link.

    Republicans have been bugfuck and batshit insane about Hillary Clinton for decades. From Healthcare to Vince Foster to email servers and Pizzagate, they have tried to bring her down. I don't think that the damage they did to the country was worth whatever they got out of it.
