Hillary Clinton’s practice of using a personal e-mail account sensitive government communication during her tenure as Secretary of State received extensive media coverage. Her detractors also questioned her motive in doing so.

Kleidermacher said politics aside, there are lessons learned from Hillary Clinton’s situation.

Hillary Clinton is an avid user of BlackBerry

It is widely-known that Hillary Clinton is an avid user of BlackBerry. Technology observers were asking if her BlackBerry could handle multiple accounts during her tenure as Secretary of State.

Technology observers noted that it wasn’t until 2013,  Hillary Clinton last year at the State Department when BlackBerry Balance, a feature designed to separate personal information such as personal e-mail accounts from work data was introduced by the Canadian smartphone manufacturer.

Lessons learned from Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal

In response to speculations on Hillary Clinton’s motives and on how technology may have been use or abused in the situation, BlackBerry Security Chief Kleidermacher emphasized that security and technology depends on humans in doing the right thing. According to him, the Presidents of the United States (POTUS) could tweet top secret information, but they chose not do it.

Kleidermacher said we should think how to minimize privilege including access to sensitive information, and technologists must make security easy to use. He explained that users will intentionally or inadvertently circumvent controls to complete their jobs if security is difficult to use.

In addition, Kleidermacher emphasized the importance of understanding the impact of regulation in mobility for people like Hillary Clinton. The existing policy does not allow concurrent access to general internet services and a classified network on a single commercial phone known as “cross-domain solution” or CDS.  He noted that cross- domain is limited only to specialized PCs and thin clients in physically secure solutions.

BlackBerry offered the ability to manage multiple e-mail accounts on a single device for decades, said Kleidermacher. However, he pointed out that the CDS policy does not apply to enterprises or the vast majority of government users.

According to him, BlackBerry’s Secure Work Space products go beyond enabling users to access their full suite of personal and work applications and securely isolating them on any device.

Furthermore, Kleidermacher said BlackBerry applies that same IT mantra of security-by-simplicity to provide a great user experience. The company ensures that its BES enterprise mobility management platform is easy to deploy and administer. He concluded that “mobile security technology must always treat productivity as a first-class requirement.”

Why Hillary Clinton used personal e-mail account

Hillary Clinton explained, “I opted for convenience to use my personal email account, which was allowed by the State Department, because I thought it would be easier to carry just one device for my work and for my personal emails instead of two.”

She also emphasized that she went “above and beyond” what was required of her to do regarding the saving official e-mails from her personal account. The State Department allowed the use of a personal e-mail account as long as she saves all records.

Hillary Clinton submitted almost 30,490 e-mails, almost 50% of the total e-mails she sent or received as Secretary of State.  She did not keep her personal e-mails citing the reason that “no one wants their personal e-mails made public.” She also thinks that most people understand her reason and respect privacy.”

Republican House Speaker John Boehner is expected to announce a new investigation this week regarding the e-mail practices of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State.

  1. Republican don;t have a snow ball chance in h#ll beating her if she runs. So they have try and do something. All drunker b#ner wants to do is file lawsuit. on somebody. You vote for those dumas$es if you want.

  2. Hillary will never be elected. She already lost to the freshman senator from Illinois, and that was almost a decade ago. She has not improved with age.

  3. Hahahaha! I have no idea what a soros troll tactic is….but based on your history, that’s what you think you are doing.
    Keep lying to yourself about Hillary. You will feel better when she is president.

  4. Hmmmmm. Interesting that you should use the soros troll tactics. Turn to page 14 for your next response.

    PS. Hillary is just a treasonous felon. Soon to be convict.

  5. Hmmm…. Interesting that your response includes namecalling.
    Are you one of those internet stalkers that harass women?
    All the bs you posted is just that.
    Fly away little bird……………

  6. Really??
    1. Are you sure? None of the previous SofS’s have signed that form.
    2. I would have thought it would be HR’s responsibility to handle her exit paperwork. I mean, who handles their own exit paperwork?
    That makes no sense at all. Kinda’ like all your other opinions.

  7. You ready for Hillary? I am not. How do you know that classified information is only discussed in person? All employees including cabinet officials should sign that document. Basic employees? What is that? Your post is riddled with inaccuracies. No reputable news organization has reported that the rule only applies top basic employees. I suggest you should take your own advice and get a clue. You are so biased that it reflects throughout your snide post.

  8. I imagine those emails said stuff like LOL the ambassador died right! And “shhh don’t tell anyone let’s make up a story about what happened.” Come on, get real guy. You want to know something. The ambassador was an ally of the obama administration. He was a graduate of UC Berkeley, a liberal and he supported Obama’s intervention in Libya while at that point in time the GOP was partisan and critical of Obama’s intentions in Libya. (Which is why the French did most of the work there.) Do you think they didn’t care when he was murdered? Of course they did. Severely tragic death that should have been avoided. It should never be repeated – again. What is ridiculous is that you right wingers pretend to give two s##ts about the ambassador when you don’t know a damn thing about him.

  9. So Sharonl we know more now than we have last we spoke. The state department has come out and admitted that the form that Hillary Clinton was REQUIRED to sign, cannot be found. And who’s job is it, do you think, to make sure such documents are signed and classified information has indeed been turned over…..None other that the Secretary Of State. Not turning over all these documents are a punishable offense. Punished by a fine and 3 years in prison.

  10. Well moron,wheres the proof that those so called personal emails are really personal?
    And for that matter there is no proof that the 30,000 emails she deleted were only personal as well.

  11. Ah yesss the web-footed, crimson buttoxed baboon. A wonderful example of social darwin adaptation. Able to exist on socialist soros slime or the ever popular barking moonbat koolaid. Watch carefully, They are known to fling excrement after a particularly large drink of kool aid.

  12. Like all good socialists you see only what you want. Guess you missed the criminal statute on record, destruction, concealment, falsification, removal…. section 2071 title 18…. Soros troll.

  13. Time for Benghazi mama to go home and baby sit in place of allow more people to be MURDERED IN COLD BLOOD. ESPECIALLY! WHEN SHE DOESN’T CARE ABOUT THEM.

  14. face the truth she is the most dishonest person in the world she lost last time and will again and again maybe you her can go find the 30000 emails that are missing by the next election when she will be running for president and listen to her laughing about getting rapist loose face the truth

  15. I kept trying to figure out why people would think the Foundation should refuse a donation from a country where things really need to change! I like to think they know they need to change, and were asking for help.

  16. Actually Taelyn, you’re a bit wrong with that statement. If Hillary used an email account for official government use and mixed it with her personal messaging then all emails under that account is public information. This is why they tell you to use a government email to begin with. So you can separate both. The first step is to argue if the account was in fact for government use. If so, then under the freedom information act, even you have a the right to know everything that was sent and received under that account.

  17. You must be “Ready for Hillary” with this post. Government LAN systems including e-mail are classified and used routinely. Old Hillary violated the law. Period.

  18. you would vote for her if you saw her take a bag of money from Algeria which she did did you know women have no rights in Algeria you are as dumb as her

  19. Taelyn, it is very evident
    that you have neither half by your blind statements of obedience.
    Using the State Department as a reference at truth is laughable to say the
    least. The speakers for the State Department are appointed Democrats whom
    either want to keep their jobs or know what Hillary followers can do to them if
    they don’t.

  20. It’s been known for a long time, same with operating a mail server and placing correspondence in the draft folder and allowing others on the server or access to, to read it but never sending it and then deleting it, and then Poof they are gone . Problem is Mainstream media doesn’t expose this information to the public and the public is to ignorant as it or in this case IT really isn’t everyone’s forte’. There’s so much they can get away with and always claim ignorance, yet there is no excuse for ignorance of the law, for you or me that is.

  21. And now the American Citizens all have a new tune!

    Can you hear it yet Hillary It’s Called “Get ta Steepen?” The Nation does not want a kind of a Hillary
    from what Raymond Maxwell has claims in the past that he witnessed her top
    aide’s purging State Department files a while back! And now Hillary she wants
    in the White House! Well we can flush her like a Big one! along with Buffoons Health Care that’s a tax hit that could sting
    millions of people Nationwide And now we
    have those real Pocket person Sniffers of the Buffoons and now they have become
    Full blown Addicts and that Sen. Schuler sniffer was noted that on that same
    night after a midnight meeting they were talking about their Benghazi backup
    stories that they will use, Then the White House national security
    communications aide Ben Rhodes, He said the email “probably was the straw
    that broke the camel’s back because that memo made it really clear we’re going
    to blame an Internet video and not a broader policy failure in Libya. And now today
    we have news Hillary has now cooked her own Goose and the Rice Sniffer as well:
    ABC News has obtained leaked emails and a secret email list containing the
    names of Hillary Clinton operatives, known as the “Mook Mafia.” The
    list is named for Robby Mook, who has worked on various Democratic campaigns
    and has been mentioned as a possible campaign manager for Clinton in 2016. The
    email list was also maintained with Marlon Marshal (called the Deacon and
    refers to himself as “Reverend”), now an Obama White House aide. It went out to
    about 150 campaign and political operatives, according to ABC. Contents of the
    eye-opening emails were published yesterday 11/14 by ABC, and may give voters
    an insight into the dirty 2016 presidential campaign Clinton intends to run.

    Well let’s take a deeper look on the Buffoon
    ex Wife she worked on legal services for her main extra-curricular activity in
    law school was in helping the Black Panthers, on trial in Connecticut for
    torturing and killing a federal agent. She had spent a year after graduation
    working on an interned with Bob Truehaft, the head of the California Communist
    Party. Well she met Bobie boy when he represented the Panthers and traveled all
    the way to San Francisco to take an internship with him. You know that she
    flunked the DC bar exam; yes flunked. It is a matter of record, and only passed
    the Arkansas bar. She had no job and Only got hired by the University of
    Arkansas Law School at Fayetteville because Billy bob was already teaching
    there. Well she didn’t join the Rose Law Firm until Billy bob became Arkansas
    Attorney General then was made a partner only after he was elected Arkansas
    Governor. “President Carter appointed Hillary to the Legal Services Board
    of Directors as its chairman.” that appointment was in exchange for Billy
    bob’s support for Carter in his 1980 primary against Ted Kennedy. “She
    served on the board of the Arkansas Children’s Hospital.” The facts are:
    Yes, she did. But her main board activity, not mentioned, was just to sit on
    the Walmart board of directors for a substantial fee. She was silent about
    their labor and health care practices. And Hillary didn’t succeed at getting
    health care for all Americans in 1994 had nothing to do with creating CHIP. It
    was included in the budget deal between Clinton and Republican Majority Leader
    Senator Trent Lott. The money came half from the budget deal and half from the
    Attorney Generals’ tobacco settlement. She had nothing to do with either source
    of funds. “Hillary was an excellent Senator who kept fighting for
    children’s and women’s issues.” The facts are: Other than totally
    meaningless legislation like changing the names on courthouses and post
    offices, she has passed only four substantive pieces of legislation. One set up
    a national park in Puerto Rico. A second provided respite care for family
    members helping their relatives through Alzheimer’s or other conditions. And
    two were routine bills to aid 911 victims and responders which were sponsored
    by the entire NY delegation. Presently she is trying to have the US memorialize
    the Woodstock fiasco of 40 years ago.

    More than anything else about Hillary She has done
    everything possible to weaken this country (that’s you and me!) when it comes
    to the war on terror.

    1. She wants to close
    GITMO and move the combatants to the USA where they would have access to our
    legal system.

    2. She wants to
    eliminate the monitoring of suspected Al Qaeda phone calls to/from the USA .

    3. She wants to grant
    constitutional rights to enemy combatants captured on the battlefield.

    4. She wants to
    eliminate the monitoring of money transfers between suspected Al Qaeda cells
    and supporters in the USA.

    5. She wants to
    eliminate the type of interrogation tactics used by the military

    & CIA where coercion might be used when questioning
    known terrorists even though such tactics might save American lives.

    6. She would be all over it like Gang Busters for Gun
    Control and changes to the First Second and the Fourth Amendment of our Bill of
    Right in the Constitution!

    One cannot think of a
    single bill Hillary has introduced or a single comment she has ever made that
    would tend to strengthen our country in the War on Terror. But,

    One can think of a lot of comments she has made in the past that
    weaken our country and make as much or more dangerous situation for all of us
    Citizens.

    Bottom line: She goes
    hand in hand With the ACLU on far too many issues where common sense is
    abandoned. Oh! What a nice Gal Hillary to have in the White House for 2016! Now
    that’s a Good One!

    Do you need a Seeing Eye Dog to connect all the Dots?

    Get a Grip!

    Or just Check your sorry self into the nearest rest home!

  22. Did you know that congress passed a law that if need be, services for people would be cut in a cost saving event. But wage cuts for congressmen is illegal (congress made that law). How does a poor person feel whether it be from south Korea or Japan, When a ambassador leaves his lavish free dwelling he or she gets to live in. They have maids and butlers serving them while they get to put their entire cheque in the bank. I don’t think they even pay for the gas for their free vehicle. A ambassador make around $170,000.00 a year plus 60% of that extra as a living allowance. What is a living allowance for when they don’t have to really pay for anything? How can the USA borrow money to sustain that type of life style?

  23. d– that is your interpretation, not mine. And I am using “interpretation” kindly, my father would have said you are lying.
    Maybe you just skimmed my comment and missed the part where I said
    We don’t know the whole story yet, just the part the Hillary-haters are screaming about..
    So, did she “Refuse to sign”?
    Do you know, or are you just piling on?

  24. Sharonl, If no rules, regulations, or laws have been broken, as Mrs. Clinton states, why all the hubub? Your answer is…..look two other people broke the laws too….so it must be ok for Hillary? That’s like getting caught speeding and say, “hey, you cant get me a ticket everyone else is speeding too…why not give them a ticket”? The cop is getting to them one at a time. Just give it some time Colin and Condolezza are on the list next. Not turning in confidential information is a crime. Other wise what’s wrong with having spies? Why have the NSA, secret service, FBI and a whole list of other government watch groups to keep our secrets…secret. If you cant see the common sense in that, and want to blame it all on right wing conspiracies, then you just have a problem, perhaps a mental health professional may need to step in for help.

  25. I think this vicious smear campaign is indicative of how afraid the radical right wing-nut brigade is of her!
    She will be awesome. And intelligent sensible woman. Some of those old white men are never going to get over it!

  26. And when you sat down to compose an email, who decided which phone you should use? Who decided whether your email was personal or work related?

  27. And why, pray tell, were Trey Gowdy’s and Jason Chaffetz’s reasons for setting up their own servers? If you suppose Hillary Clinton’s reasons were nefarious, surely you also suppose they have nefarious reasons.
    And your ignorant remark largely ignores the fact that the server was already set up.

  28. It must be nice to go through life so deluded (or heavily medicated). Maybe some reading will help enlighten you. Start in Arkansas 1975.

  29. Lest everyone forget, Ms. Clinton directed her lawyers to review her emails to determine what was private or otherwise. Unless those lawyers all held security clearances and were vetted for classified material, they and she violated numerous national security laws by reading sensitive or higher information, for which there are stern punishments.

  30. The Federal Records Act (1950) was updated to address cyber security, NOV 26, 2014 , signed into law by Potus. According to FRA, there’s no prohibition on officials keeping a private secured address prior to 2014. Currently,private secured email addresses can be allowed but the officials must send or copy any official communiques, emails to the State Dept link for archiving. Currently, John Kerry is the FIRST agency appointee to use the State Dept.gov address. Prior to that, Agency officials kept private secured email addresses , including Colin Powell, who did delete his personal emails when he submitted official email records ,as required in Oct 2014,along with Hillary Clinton. Colin Powell has also publicly reiterated that he was not aware of any laws prohibiting a private secured email address prior to 2014. Legally , she was compliant within the FRA (1950) .Her tenure ended in 2013 . The story from the NY Times, with the “unnamed source”, of the “email scandal” was recently reported in other media outlets as having been the product of a leak from the Obama cabinet. Some media outlets have reported the source of those leaks as Valerie Jarrett, Obama adviser, who leaked the story to sabotage Hillary’s chances in 2016. The motivation behind it was to court alternatives, like Elizabeth Warren, that will further advance and maintain the Obama legacy. Interesting angle, given the animus between the Obamas and the Clintons. Also interesting since Warren has stated she wont run. Jarrett leaked the story so as not to be traced back to her. The recent revelation by the NY Times recent reversal regarding this “email scandal” might give some credence to these recent allegations Also Potus himself denied he was aware of Hillary’s private email address. Highly unlikely considering they communicated via her address, prior to 2014, wouldn’t he have addressed it with her then if this was not standard practice among State Dept officials, as Colin Powell stated?. Another interesting facet is the only reason Hillarys address was exposed was due to a WHITE HOUSE STAFFERS EMAIL WAS HACKED in MARCH of 2013. What , limited media scrutiny of that incident? Again, Clinton left the State Dept. in FEB 2013. Anyone that was emailing Clinton would have copies of communiques. So if she had deleted official emails, (which is higly unlikely) anyone emailing her would have copies of that communique, including POTUS. So Potus was unaware that his WH staffer had their email hacked? The main government official who opened this “email scandal” investigation was none other than, Valerie Jarrett. Interesting isn’t it? if Hillary is to be pilloried, then Powell and predecessors should also be held to the same scrutiny. And to think the GOPERS were the only ones capable of playing dirty. They must’ve studied the Karl Rove playbook.

  31. It matters to those of us who follow the law, and Hillary is clearly not in that category! May she rest in peace, behind bars, with no retirement from the tax payers.

  32. Perhaps a little research could clear up your misconception.
    If you had researched a bit you would know that neither Powell nor Rice were required to do this.
    The law didn’t come about until 2009.
    Further, Clinton has already told 3 different stories about how the e-mails were researched and then deleted.
    So you see, I have reasons for not believing her.
    You are the perfect example of left wing ideology.
    You would defend and vote for her even if she killed 1000 babies in a satanic ritual.
    The absolute pitifulness of yourself.

  33. There was only one reason for Hilliary to set up a private email server in her home and that was to hide whatever information she wanted to hide, whenever she wanted to hide it.

  34. Who ever is free of wrong doing, please throw the stone… we all have private agendas. Many get away with it. Time will tell for Hillary… get over it.

  35. What a Dip Sh#t.. Clearly you did not listen to the Press Conference.. No Classified emails exist on her server.. Nothing Classified was emailed. She did not Document Classified discussions. Which makes perfect sense. Half the Senate have admitted that they NEVER use email… LOL

  36. She already said, she never emailed classified Information, Whats more her email did not and could not access the server that collected such email.. As with almost ALL politicians Classified talks take place in person.. They dont risk such information being compromised.. Buy a CLUE… Also The State dept has stated that High ranking officials are not required to sign that document. It is reserved for basic employees, Not Cabinet officials. Perhaps YOU might want to read the news. She did lead by example. She did just as the many Sec of State before her.. None of them signed that Document (As it is not required) She among others ha a private personal email.. She conducted Classified talks in person and did not Document them in her email. I think she set a great example.

  37. Like 47 Traitors and Criminals who are guilty under the Logan Act of Interfering with the Commander in Chief who was in Negotiations with other Governments.

  38. So you believe the republican former Sec of State who handled his email in the Exact same private manner as Hillary.. However unlike Hillary he admitted he deleted ALL his email and documents.. You believe he did nothing wrong, broke no rules and commited no crime and has nothing to hide..
    But Hillary who turned in over more than 50,000 pages of email is a criminal, above the rules and law and hiding something. You have no proof, Nothing to back up your assertion, you just choose to believe the Lie perpetrated by others just ‘Because’.. OK…WoW
    You are the prime example of the right wing mentality.

  39. Are you for real.. Sorry, but EVERY President has a lifetime salary. As do other Members of the Congress, republican And democrat.
    You have a problem because they are now wealthy?? Thats so stupid. At-least these wealthy people are willing to pay higher taxes, and are fighting for higher wages and better more affordable benefits for the Middle class. Affordable College so more young people can also achieve their dreams and perhaps become wealthy.. Nothing wrong with being wealthy.. What IS WRONG is being GREEDY.. If you hate the wealthy you may want to look to your right.. The Clintons are at-least fighting on the behalf of others trying to even the field creating opportunities.. So I say, Good for them.. I think its great they achieved so much.. I dont envy them.. Im proud because they dont have to fight for us, but they do. The LASR cost of living wage you ever got was because President Bill Clinton made it a priority. So get your facts straight.. And leave your greedy envy at the door. And Damn straight, I WILL vote for Hillary proudly.

  40. Well I agree with Sharon.. What emails? Any emails that **Might** apply or be in that time frame are in the committee’s possession.. You cant just “Suppose” that more exists.. Hillary has stated that most discussions took place on the phone and the record confirms that. So what emails do you think you know about that so far do NOT exist? And what proof do you have that they DO exist?

  41. Good point.. And what is so conveniently ignored is that Email goes 2 ways. You send and receive. So regardless of what Hillary deleted There is another copy somewhere.. If anything was NOT personal she leaves herself vulnerable to Blackmail and any other kind of harmful exposure.. She is too smart for that.If it was personal as she said then she has done nothing wrong in protecting her personal privacy.. Nothing criminal or corrupt exists and she knows it. And the wild Idea suggesting otherwise is ridiculous.

  42. You lost me with all the Ohh’s and oop’s
    Try talking about facts that relate to Hillary Clinton.
    You just sound like a rambling idiot who cherry picks’
    There are LOTS of facts and numbers we could talk about, and most dont favor your Party.
    But again.. Limit yourself to Hillary.. You know, Our Next President.

  43. You need to read the actual NEWS about that Document, And get your facts straight. Not the Truth as yopu “want” it to be, But the actual TRUTH.. and FACTS.. Straight from the State Department….. Buy a Clue……

  44. No…. I dont think you do, Read the above post and maybe.. Just maybe you WILL get it. You may not like it, but if you have half a brain you may “GET IT”

  45. Do you realize how stupid that is? Let me be clear… IF she had emails like that they would have to be to or from somebody.. So a copy would exist somewhere and possibly be used against her. AND.. while unlikely because Legal Cause for search and seizure would be hard to prove its still possible.. Her server still could be seized. And deleting such emails would be a disaster.. You can say or think whatever you want about Hillary, But few would call her stupid. And deleting those kinds of emails would be stupid.. Emails are not totally private, They come from, or go to somebody.. And IF they existed that somebody could easily blackmail, OR sell or provide them to anyone. BUT…… They dont exist, and never did.. They only live in the fantasy of Idiots.. TRY to be logical.. Just TRY and maybe you will see the truth.

  46. Chris Christie maybe.. There is solid proof against him.. But none exists with Hillary.. Just a lot of GOP lies and wishful thinking, They want you to think she is a crook Because they are scared So they spread Lied and slander.. But the truth is, She is just a savvy but honest Politician.

  47. How do you know she is disgusted? If anything she is amused and saddened by your stupidity and gullible nature that you believe LIES fed to you by frightened Republican’s and the right wing hate mongers who will stoop to ANY level to spread Hate, Lies and Mistrust.. She is not disgusted, Rather Im sure she simply cant wait to prove all of you… And ‘them’ wrong. (Which the State Dept has already dispelled one major lie) She is anxious to get into office and prove to all you trolls, how wrong you are.. And make your life better like it or not.. Plus get the important work done.

  48. She had no dealing with the foundation during her tenure, And Bill restricted donations as well.. After she left office she nor he had anything to do with Foreign policy, and Donations were not a violation.. And if a M.E govt gave a great deal of Money knowing it would go to fund many ideas their belief conflicts with, So be it.. The money still goes to a good cause. If the Foundation refused money from everyone they conflicted with they would never collect the funds that help Millions of people and places in need………. Im sure republicans donate to people and charities that in real time they would not lift a finger to help.. My feeling is take the money, then deal with the problem.. And anyone with half a brain cell Knows that Hillary has and is a champion for women/Girls.. and Children and education. Among other things like fair wages and equal pay for equal work.. What are YOU doing to help Humanity??

  49. Because the Rules say she can….THATS WHY. Get over it.
    Why did Hillary get to fly on a private plane for her business and you dont?
    Get a Grip.. She did nothing that others in her same position didnt do as well. Face the truth and deal with it.

  50. Sorry you are deeply misinformed. This has been addressed, And declared by the State That Sec Clinton,along with Sec’s Rice and Powell, among others did nothing wrong, and committed no crime, and broke no rules that pertained to their office and rank. It is truly uncanny how you right wingers just cast a wide, crazy net and HOPE to catch something, It does not matter what, or if you have proof of wrong doing, Just the Idea or accusation is enough.. And you all have the NERVE to question Hillary’s ethics.. Unreal….. Just Unreal

  51. Especially when While the GOP Benghazi committee is permitted to see anything related to Libya. The GOP has NO RIGHT to see any private emails that might discuss other matters or opinions regarding her plans for 2016, or her opinion of them. She is entitled to her privacy. She has supplied what was required of her.. No more, no less should be expected.

  52. You can dream.. But I wouldnt hold my breath, or on second thought .. Go ahead. Just one less gullible Idiot. And she will not be crowned. She will be voted in legally by the Majority of Voters because We know she will make an AWESOME President.

  53. As a govt employee, I carried 2 cell phones, one supplied by the govt for official business and one I owned for personal communications. It was required by IT security regulations. It allowed everyone to separate official communications from personal communications and makes the accounting for incurred costs perfectly distinct. Seems like Hillary violated the govt’s security mandate.

  54. I’m not really sure I understand your post because I was never one much for guessing games, but I’ll give it a shot:
    First we lost Jack, then we lost Martin and Bobby. Then that sleazy creep crook Nixon took over, and we have been going downhill ever since. Then that spawn of satan, Reagan began the dissolution of our Democratic Republic. Bush2 was awful. The only moments of sanity and prosperity have been the Clinton and Obama administrations.
    I haven’t shopped Wal-Mart since the mid-80’s because I find their business model despicable, I hate what it did to core downtown main street business, the jobs it destroyed and the tax burden they impose on their own communities. Also, if you think that crap coming in from China is junk, you should see what we are sending back. I do not own any apple products and I have never bought any I-tunes, because I also hate their exploitative business model. I buy my meat and most of my produce from local producers and shop as little as possible in the supermarket.
    I don’t understand your not one democrat or republican has said a word, because I think they all talk too much and do too little. We all have to pick our battles, but it’s not necessary for each of us to fight every battle. Spend your energy where you feel able to.
    The 4th rule of quantum physics is that there is no unconnected middle, which weirdly, coincidentally, is the same as “No man is an island”.

  57. Isn’t thirty years of bending the rules to conceal the truth enough. Hillary expected to be crowned in 2016 by default. The way this is playing out, she may be crowned with an indictment. One can only hope.

  58. You do know who took the US Government from “Off-Budget” to “On-Budget”……right..!!

    Hint: the same person as a Senator that thrashed the 1957 Civil Rights Bill before President Eisenhower signed it on September 9, 1957….

    oh..!! that same person has a famous quote that has to do with 200 years and a black person too… :)

    oops!

    and you did know 1975 was the last year America had a trade surplus..

    Total US debt was sitting at $533 billion that year too…

    As of January 20, 2009 it was standing at $10,626,877,048,913.08 when Obama moved into the People’s House to live rent free and as on the 16th of this month that total US debt stood at $18,152,428,120,668.55…

    It ain’t about mudslings…

    it’s about the American voters voting for Parties and never for Character…

    oh! and most likely you shop Wal*Mart too…

    It’s Global Procurement Office is in China

    It puts less than 5% foreign in all its stores in China

    It commissioned five super cargo ships to bring Made In China to America

    It is said one of those ships pollutes as much as 50 million cars each year…

    oh! did I say America hasn’t had a trade surplus since 1975…

    39 years ago

    and not one democrat or republican has said a word…

    and here you are typing ” I just dislike lying and mudslinging”

    Only in America.

  59. Actually, I believe the statement was “I suspect she didn’t want Louie Gohmert rifling through her e-mails, which seems to me to be a kind of reasonable position for someone to take,” .
    Well, besides being suspicion rather than fact, the sentiment seems kind of reasonable to me. I personally don’t want Louie Gohmert rifling through ANYTHING of mine.

  60. James Carvel told the more likely, real and TRUE reason Hillary opted
    for a private email account, when he stated that Hillary did not want
    “Republicans rifling through her emails”. Thus, Hillary’s using a
    private email had more to do with privacy and concealment, versus what
    Hillary said was merely convenience.

    Question: why would anyone
    who is in line for running for the presidency, opt for anything less
    than transparency as it pertains to emails? Hillary completely shot
    herself in the foot on this one, though she likely opted for the lesser
    of two evils: either opt for complete transparency (in which case the
    GOP would cherry-pick from ALL Hillary’s emails), OR use a “personal
    server” which would make concealing, at least some sensitive emails,
    possible.

  61. ..

    Jerry Zeifman was a head liberal Democratic lawyer honcho
    during the Nixon Watergate period hearings. He was the guy who hired Hillary
    Clinton on that committee. He’s also
    the guy who fired her.

    He supervised her when she worked on the Watergate
    investigation. He says, Hillary’s history of lies and unethical behavior goes
    back farther, goes much deeper than anybody realized. Now, Jerry Zeifman, a
    lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of Hillary Rodham Clinton — or Hillary
    Rodham — on the committee. He fired
    her from the committee staff, refused to give her a letter of
    recommendation. She was only one of three people who earned that distinction in
    Zeifman’s 17-year career.

    Why? In an interview last week, Zeifman said, “Because
    she was a liar. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to
    violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee
    and the rules of confidentiality.”

    “The actions of Hillary and her cohorts went directly
    against the judgment of top Democrats up to and including the majority leader
    at the time, Tip O’Neill, the ultra-left Democratic Senator stated that Nixon
    clearly had the right to counsel.” She tried to see to it Nixon didn’t get
    a lawyer in all of this.

    Zeifman says that Hillary “was determined to gain
    enough votes on the Judiciary Committee to change House rules and deny counsel
    to Nixon. And in order to pull this off, Zeifman says that Hillary wrote a
    fraudulent legal brief, and confiscated public documents to hide her
    deception.”

    Now, this comes from — this is Dan Calabrese at
    NorthStarWriters.com. Hillary removed — and William O. Douglas had been
    brought up and they — he was granted — when he was on the Supreme Court, he
    was granted the right to a lawyer. I mean, it’s fundamental in our judicial
    system. “So Hillary removed all the Douglas files to the offices where she
    was located, which at that time were secured and inaccessible to the
    public.” This from Zeifman.

    “Hillary then proceeded to write a legal brief arguing
    there was no precedent for the right to representation by counsel during an
    impeachment proceeding — as if the Douglas case had never occurred.”

    She just stole the documents, then wrote a fraudulent brief,
    and she tried to hide the evidence. “The brief was so fraudulent and
    ridiculous Zeifman believes Hillary would have been disbarred if she had
    submitted it to a judge.” So I don’t know if this is going to get wide
    play but if it does, it could finish her off. Well, really only they can finish
    themselves off, and they’re in the process of doing it.

  63. TheAmerican nonprofit OneVoice Movement – under scrutiny by a U.S. Senate panel over possible links to a campaign to oust Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu – quietly filed paperwork that would allow it to engage in political
    activism after lawmakers questioned its use of government funds

    What does it say about the President of the United States when he’s more concerned about undermining and attacking the prime minister of Israel than he is standing up to the mortal threat a nuclear Iran poses?”

    Just five days after the public dispatch of the Cruz-Zeldin letter, a “corporation service company” registered a new funding entity in Delaware called PeaceWorks Action, Inc. under a section of the tax code that still governs nonprofits, but allows them to engage in a limited amount of political activity. Listed under section is 501(c)4 of the tax code, PeaceWorks Action, Inc. is now featured on the OneVoice Website as one of OneVoice’s funders, alongside PeaceWorks Foundation, whose name has long been present, and which holds 501(c)3 status like OneVoice itself.

  64. Hillary either neglected to turn over govt property when she left (a crime), or she lied on the affidavit that she may have signed saying she did (a crime). Either way, she’s about as innocent as a cigar-wielding Bill Clinton at an intern slumber party.

  65. In private industry, if I am a business owner/executive and there is a lawsuit against the company, not only will my work email come into the scrutiny of the lawsuit but my personal email will as well if there is any indication that I did work with my personal email. So why does Hillary get to mix personal and work and those in charge not decide what is relevant and what is not?

  66. She at least broke the rules of government. She deleted any evidence that she was conducting Clinton Foundation business while Sec of State., soliciting foreign moneys…

  69. Hillary Clinton was lauded as an exemplary secretary of state. After four years and nearly a million miles logged as America’s top diplomat, she stepped down to a torrent of praise.
    “The most consequential secretary of state since Dean Acheson,” enthused Google’s Eric Schmidt. “Stellar,” pronounced Bloomberg’s Margaret Carlson.
    Even Republican Sen. John McCain, while criticizing her response to the killing of U.S. officials in Benghazi, went out of his way to compliment her “outstanding” State Department tenure.

  70. In July 2008, the United States Department of Justice investigated around 900 cases of alleged fraud committed by contractors.
    Similarly, the Defense Contract Audit Agency uncovered $10 billion in questionable Iraq contracts, and a US audit found that the occupation authority had lost track of reconstruction funds totalling nearly $9 billion.

    Henry Waxman, then Chairman of the United States House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, said, “The money that’s gone into waste, fraud and abuse under these contracts is just so outrageous, it’s egregious. It may well turn out to be the largest war profiteering in history.”

  71. Broke, but got into a cozy 1 million dollar house shortly after leaving the WH. Unemployed and bankrupt? BS, they Hiil and Bill are just filthy liars.

  72. The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors.

    In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years.

    The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

    Related: Government Blatantly Wastes $30 Billion This Year

    The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt to conceal evidence of illicit behavior by omitting key documents from the contract file. It impairs the ability of the Department to take effective and timely action to protect its interests, and, in tum, those of taxpayers.”

    In the memo, the IG detailed “repeated examples of poor contract file administration.” For instance, a recent investigation of the closeout process for contracts supporting the mission in Iraq, showed that auditors couldn’t find 33 of the 115 contract files totaling about $2.1 billion. Of the remaining 82 files, auditors said 48 contained insufficient documents required by federal law.

  73. Hillary is more popular than ever. And, every time the republican right wing-nuts attack her, she gains popularity points.
    GOP’s don’t know how to keep their mouths shut.

  74. If you keep your eyes peeled, you might be able to catch ex-Congressperson Aaron Schock. He just resigned.
    (The guy who decorated his office like Downton Abbey.)

  75. Try a new answer using a little less crazy. She was a great Sec. of State, and everyone knew it.
    That is why the radical right wing-nut brigade is attacking her so viciously. Their biggest problem is that every time they attack her, she comes back stronger.

  76. I deleted all my emails using keywords. What keywords? Um…I had people read the emails and then delete them. Yeah, that’s what I did…

  77. Everyone except dyed in the wool Clinton lovers and brain dead Dem’s know that her run is over. She either signed the doc and then violated it or she didn’t sign it and stole national security docs. There is no win here for Hildabeast. She is like Obama in that she lies about everything. But being a Clinton, she thinks the media will cover up for her and they will but it won’t do any good. This is too big.

  78. Dont fool yourself. All the foreign governments knew and read her emails. That’s why she never had any successes as Secretary of State. All foreign governments got ahead of her and pre-empted her since they knew what she was GOING to do.

    Wouldn’t surprise me in the least information from her personal emails that went to Ambassador Stevens were intercepted by Muslim radicals. That’s why we were so ineffective in Benghazi. The enemy knew what she wanted to do.

  79. You are using mis-information to perpetrate a lie.
    I did not say I thought she turned in ALL the emails. I said she turned over email, Clinton Powell did not.
    You are allowing partisan biases to get in the way of logic.
    So answer this. IF she had used her dot gov account…
    At the time she composed an email, who decided whether it was personal or work?

  80. Wow, Jay Pierre, it sounds like maybe you would be a number one candidate to work for National Geographic studying the baffoons and silverbacks. While your at it with all of that talent that your presenting to us right a book. Nonfiction or Fiction it would be a choice of opportunity.

  81. Ask any IT guy, They will all tell you, If you want to have secure communications forget your public email accounts. Hillary committed treason using a hacky sack system to transmit and receive United States top secret communications. She should be indicted, tried, convicted and imprisoned. Enough lies from the Clintonistas

  82. Sharon
    That is correct, and I believe him.
    I just don’t believe Hillary.
    Remember the ‘open mind’, you have no evidence that what she says is true.
    If you have proof that she turned all e-mails over, I would definitely be interested in hearing it, please share.
    I have no evidence what she says is false.
    So it comes down to whether she is trust worthy.
    Her record on that accord is flakey at best.
    I don’t buy it.

  83. Does any intellectually honest person believe ANYTHING the Hildabeast has to say? The Hildabeast is an endangered species that is unique in it’s ability to squawk in a way that actually sounds like human speech. Closely related to the shillbilly and the schreeching weasel the sole surviving Hildabeast has been heard schreeching sounds about emails, benghazi and that the attack on the American Ambassador in South Korea is in reaction to a video tape that inflamed the resentment of (something garbled)

    An international effort is now being funded to capture the Hildabeast, and airdrop it back into it’s native habitat of Benghazi by the November election.

    The Hildabeast is known to have a support network of drones funded by a consortium of soros, bloomberg, steyers that swarm to the attack when the Hildabeast nest is threatened. These parasitic organisms will eventually freeze and die as the eternal winter piles more snow on their native region in the North East. Swarms of them have recently been seen falling into the snow around Boston and New York schreeching cries of “Global Warming and “OH WHAT A WORLD.”

  84. You know the Clintons were broke when they left the White House. That’s why Hillary tried to “lift” a few things when she and Bill left the White House. They just needed to get by until they could get on their feet again. They only have their government pensions and social security to live on in between speaking engagements. Where’s your compassion?

  85. Why aren’t Hillary’s emails available during the time frame of Benghazi, then? They just mysteriously disappeared…imagine that?!

  86. 3/08/15 Appearing on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday, Powell responded to revelations that he used a personal email account, rather than a government one, when he was in charge of the State Department. Questions about his email use arose last week when it was disclosed that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used a personal email account during her tenure.

    “I don’t have any to turn over. I did not keep a cache of them. I did not print them off. I do not have thousands of pages somewhere in my personal files,” Powell said. “A lot of the emails that came out of my personal account went into the State Department system. They were addressed to State Department employees and state DOT gov domain, but I don’t know if the servers in the State Department captured those or not. “

  88. You state in a previous post that she turned over e-mails, and Collin Powell did not.
    But you have no idea that’s true.
    Then in the next post you say you are keeping an open mind.
    Yeah, your keeping an open mind alright, an open mind for any sound byte that will advance your ideology.

  89. I’ve been using a Blackberry STORM since March of 2007. I have been separately receiving email and sending email from 3 different email addresses (Personal, Business, Blackberry Server) since I started. Is she really that dumb or does she just think that nobody out here is paying attention? The technology has been around for quite awhile.

  90. Yes!!!
    Also, don’t you find it hilarious that she was sending emails on an address that ended clintonmail dot com , and NO ONE noticed for 4 years?

  91. Maybe the fund and favors she accepted for the Clinton foundation durring her tenure, or maybe her lost three weeks of emails when she was in the middle east, which she should have been reporting daily.

  92. When you have classified documents in you e-mails and paper documents you are required to turn in things like that. She did. Colin Powell did not.
    When you end your position (having served a high ranking position like Secretary Of State) you have to sign a document that you have turned over everything.
    Why did she (possibly) not sign? Colin Powell did not. Condoleezza Rice did not.
    Did she refuse? Maybe the state dept. did not ask. They don’t know, because they are still shuffling papers.
    Last time you signed a batch of papers (like maybe a house closing) did you ask about papers that weren’t presented to you to sign? Or did you sign the ones that were there?
    See, we don’t know the whole story yet, just the part the Hillary-haters are screaming about.
    This is just another right wing-nut smear campaign.
    The correct answer to my question “What laws did she break?” is NONE.

  93. Actually, as a process person, I am keeping an open mind:

    Where I worked did not get to have 2 accounts–1 phone until 2011. I don’t remember what was available in 2009, but I do know my personal phone back then was still a flip phone.

    As far as the cords, I currently carry 2 just for traveling in the U.S. I assume world travel comes with a lot of extraneous paraphernalia, including phone cords that work with other country’s electrical plugs.

    Why did she not sign the separation document? Did she refuse? Or was it withheld by the HR department? Or did that document not exist for her position in 2012?

    Why didn’t Condoleezza Rice or Colin Powell sign the document? Did they refuse? Or are they getting a free pass from the ravenous right wing-nut brigade?

    A personal server is a great convenience if it is already set up, as her was. Once again, Republican politicians like Jason Chaffetz and Trey Gowdy have their own servers, yet no one is asking them why. It is certainly a lot easier than having Yahoo tell you your mailbox is full, please delete some emails.

    As far as 30,000 personal email in 4 years, well I just went to my email box and counted. I have received 40 since midnight, and the day is not yet done. That extrapolates out to 58,000 emails in 4 years. You better believe I don’t wait that long to delete them. I used to get a lot more until I unsubscribed from a bunch after the last election.

    Now….think about what is involved in asking her to “turn over” her server. A server is more than just a repository for email accounts. What do you store on your computer? Finances, photographs, music, plans, etc. Nearly every thing I do in a day involves my computer in some way. The server may also serve the Clinton Foundation.

    Is she supposed to willingly open up all that non-relevant information, as well as suspend her entire life for an indeterminate amount of time, for the convenience of a Republican snipe-hunt?

    If they agreed on an independent 3rd party to go to where the server is stored, I could get behind that.

    So, to sum it up: what you see as “pretty criminal”, actually looks like an ordinary every day life to me.

  94. What do you think was in any of her emails that would change anything? Why weren’t you and everyone else so concerned about what was in Colin Powell’s or Rice’s emails? This is just more partisan idiocy because the GOP is frightened to death that Hillary will beat them.

  95. What happened in Benghazi has been known for some time. There have been numerous reports and inquiries about it. What do you think Hillary said in those emails that would change reality?

  96. Back to the article, my question who decided
    what was personal and what was private? If it was a third party who just looked
    at the e-mail who wasn’t involved with the Clinton political machine maybe I
    could accept the single use idea. On the other hand if it was someone in the
    Clinton foundation protecting her from so many of her stupid mistakes or downright
    political crimes then I have a big problem with her keeping that server private!

  97. As a result, it her words against only, against the Republicans. Nothing to prove what docs where personal what criteria she used to call it personal. You support this , you are fornicating the way to Govern.

  98. Hillary is a bigger liar then Bill. She is the lady of hutzpah. I can not believe that democrats will vote for her. Self centered attitude in time with her lying and deceit is coupled with sleazy politics. Believing that you are above the law and beating the system is the same way they ran the show in the 90’s . DNP will not put her up as front runner, even obummer beat her, and look what he accomplished, look real close, it is almost invisible. I know that the free loaders will vote for Donald duck, but the real democratic liberal will demand that the party run another candidate.

  99. I take your point, even though I personally do not buy Apple products because I don’t care for their exploitive business model. I carried the Magnavox produced in Fort Worth as long as I could.

  100. Well put. Hillary was in the highest position with the most access to classified sensitive information. She should lead by example. She did not. She is a failure.

  101. Lois Lerner Redux. The Treasury IG found all her e-mails and are now considering prosecution. Maybe the State Departments IG needs to get involved with this also. I surely hope so. Hillary has been given a pass for to long and now she seems impervious to the same rules everyone else has to comply with.

  102. she intentionally used outside communications for official business to keep things hidden from the public. wouldn’t it be nice to know what really happened in benghazi. she is a criminal and needs to be brought to justice

  103. When America votes openly for a crime family syndicate is the day Iran, Syria, China, and possibly Russia too becomes your very best friends and mentors… When the Office of The Presidency of The United States of America becomes complicit in picking-up where the Nazi Regime of Adolf Hitler left off in promoting a “One World Government” you should start to pack you bags and run for the Border… Your freedoms, your liberties, all your personal opportunities, your preferences of choice, these life giving qualities will become the very means to prosecute you as an enemy of the state… It’s people that will be working in chain-gangs, working on roads, on highway projects that will possess the rights you thought they never really had themselves given their particular circumstances… No more taxes!

  104. Apple has a app whereas as you can have two phone numbers on one iphone, one can be your personal ph and other can be business. As a business owner I would rather my employees to go with the Apple deal as I would then share the cell phone bill. BlackBerry’s deal is more expensive

  105. I guess you haven’t been following the news. So, let me clue you in. When working in many positions in government, many of those agencies deal with sensitive information. Pesky little things like, classified information, like talks with North Korean missile testing, things like that across the globe. When you have classified documents in you e-mails and paper documents you are required to turn in things like that. When you end your position (having served a high ranking position like Secretary Of State) you have to sign a document that you have turned over everything. The U.S. government takes a dim view on selling classified documents to places like Russia. The form is OF109. It says that you indeed have turned over everything. And you understand if you have kept anything that you could get in big trouble. Like (paying big fines and going to prison) and things like that. So that’s the rules she broke in a nutshell. And that’s what all the hubub is all about.

  106. Partisan BS. Their work is a bargain at 10 times the price. If they were a CEO of some big corporation the salary would be tens of millions of dollars and retirement would be millions of dollars.

    Is it jealousy on your part. You could have run for president or the senate. No guts no glory. You should keep your minimum wage job.

  107. Hillary Rodham Clinton, as a New York State Senator now comes under this fancy “congressional retirement staffing plan” which means that if she never gets re-elected, she STILL receives her Congressional salary until she dies.
    If Bill out-lives her, he then inherits HER salary until he dies. He is already getting his Presidential salary ($20,000 a month) until he dies. If Hillary out-lives Bill, she also gets HIS salary until she dies, Guess who pays for that? WE DO!

    Clinton’s 20 Acre – $11 million mansion is common knowledge. For her to establish NY residency, they purchased this mansion in upscale Chappaqua, New York….makes sense. They are entitled to Secret Service protection for life. Still makes sense.

    Here is where it becomes interesting. Their mortgage payments are around $10,000/month. But an extra residence had to be built by the government on the acreage to house the Secret Service Agents. Any improvement to the property is owned by the property owners…the Clinton’s. So….the Clinton’s charge the federal government $10,000 monthly rent for the use of the extra residence to house the Secret Service staff which is just about equal to their mortgage payment. He is the ONLY ex-president to use this loophole, thus earning the name ‘Slick Willie’.

    This means that we, the taxpayers, pay the Clinton’s, salary, mortgage, transportation, safety and security as well as the salaries for their 12 man staff and it is all perfectly legal.

    AND DON’T FORGET HIS GOVERNOR’S PENSION AND HER SECRETARY OF STATE PENSION…..

    When she runs for President, will you vote for her ?

    How many people will YOU send this to?

  108. Sharon – all phones have the ability to manage more than one email account. Not sure why she would need 6-8 charging cords even if she had two phones. I’m also confident she could get her security detail or admins to help carry all those heavy cords! How convenient is it to set up a personal server in your home? And at what cost. I’m sure it would have been much more convenient to have a gov’t expert set everything up for her to ensure convenience and security. She didn’t turn over all documents when she resigned, nor did she sign the document confirming this. Why won’t she turn over the server to the state department and let a an independent group determine what is gov’t business vs. personnel. Did she really write over 30K personal emails? WOW. And with all the interest in the emails, seems very convenient that she decided to delete them all. I don’t know what was in those emails, and looks like we never will – but for someone is “transparent”, she sure looks pretty criminal to me. Keep an open mind – there are bad people on both sides of the political spectrum

  109. You know, if you talk to your doctor, I’m sure he can offer up some good drugs and treatments for your mental health disorder. In the meantime, watch out for all those bogeymen hiding under your bed.

  110. The Clintons and Obama’s rode into town on the backs of a mule, and will exit in a chauffeured Limousine. They rose to power on the promise of social equality, then separated themselves from THE PEOPLE and the masses whom they made more Debt slaves out of than any amount of Southern Field slaves that ever existed in the old Civil War South. You got hand it to them though, that they did NOT discriminate, as unlike the slavery of the Old Dominions of the South that was limited to just one race, Obama’s American Economic Debt Slavery discriminates against no race, religion, gender or Economic class, in the equal Socialist Redistribution of the poverty that follows them wherever they travel, where the FUNdeMENTAL redefining of the Executive job description has been changed into a position of Campaigner-in-chief where WE THE PEOPLE get poorer by the minute and THEY the political elite walk off with the freedoms of our cash, our travel, our vacations, redistributed from WE THE PEOPLE, to THEY the social parasites.

  111. Actually, if you read the actual process her team used to “sift through 60,000 + emails by hand”, it was pretty convenient.
    I have actually had 2 accounts on my smart phone, and logging in and out, and in and out constantly is a headache. Not to mention how many emails I have had to compose twice, because I forgot I was in the other account when I compose them. After awhile, I figured out that if I was in the wrong account, I would just email it to the other account, then I could copy and paste the new one, still a hassle, but at least I didn’t have to rewrite the entire email.
    Then there is the matter of how many charging cords I have to keep track of. Car charger, home charger, international charger. Does the middle east have a different charger? What about Australia, or the Pacific Asian countries?
    People who get all wound up about the end product, rarely take the process into consideration.
    If you want to get really wound up about the process, go watch Rachel Maddow’s story about what happens at the State Department when you make a FOIA request. The process is so antiquated it’s embarrassing.

  112. I have actually used that several times. If she had gone to the hassle of carrying 2 devices and what, 6-8 charging cords(?), ultimately, she is the one who had to decide each time she composed an email: work or personal?
    “What difference did it make” if she did it in the moment for each individual email, or at the end all at once? The end product was the same. Only the process was different.
    You can bet that the GOP’s would still be screaming about how she is using a personal email account to “hide” secret work emails.
    My opinion is that this is indicative of how much fear Hillary invokes in the radical right.

  113. That she thought she was so “special” that her own needs trumped the letter or intent of the law is astounding
    This is merely your biased opinion, NOT a fact. The fact is she followed the letter and intent of the law at the time.
    In fact your entire hyperbolic diatribe is not in any way based in reality. Are you taking lessons from Faux?

  114. The ideal Republican candidate: Jeb Bush

    The ideal Democratic candidate: Hillary

    The best candidates for 2016: Jeb/Walker vs Hillary/Kaine

    Get ready to Rumble!!

  115. She allowed more than one person her attorneys to read classified information which is a felony. She would look great in a red jumpsuit and handcuffs. Where is Holder and his tough ruff polices to arrest and convict criminals, especially those who reside right under his big nose?

  116. Since when does “convenience” matter to the politicians and bureacrats the create the laws, rules and regulations the rest of us have to live with? Try that excuse with the DOJ or IRS or OSHA sometime. That she thought she was so “special” that her own needs trumped the letter or intent of the law is astounding. She used her own personal policy to circumvent valid FOIA and Congressional requests for information from the State Dept, and if that is acceptable then there will never be any accountability for any documents or actions or transparency by any govt official, completely in disregard for the way our Constitution provides. And she is way too smart to not have known the real world effects of her decision to use a personal email and server would have on the accessability of her govt work product, which is owned by the taxpayers, not her. She was supposed to have signed a document under penalty of perjury that she already turned over all such emails when she left the State Dept, but it took two years and govt lawyers (that we had to pay for) to get her to do even the minimal she has done so far. Apparently neither she nor her husband, who lost his law licence over it, have a problem with commiting perjury or think it applies to themselves.

  117. Don’t forget about the guy these servers were registered to… the same guy in the middle of the scandal of Bill pardoning his brother and a still unexplained wire transfer at the time of lying under oath…
    This is also the same guy smack dab in the middle of the theft from the whitehouse that The Clintons had to pay back $100,000 for…
    His wife also founded a million dollar superpac for the democrats…
    Yeah, if you think about ALL the shady things with the clintons, their affiliations, and all of the unexplained murders that surround them…
    Screw Hillary and her bid for the presidency.

  118. Yeah let’s not comment against powerful politicians running for the highest office in the country breaking laws that everyone else has to follow. Let’s wait to make our opinions known against corruption until that person is elected President. I just hate it when people talk about issues that mean something to them

  119. Why do you think they’re so concerned about HillBillary?
    They love their country, unlike Hill who looks at it like her personal piggy bank and play pen.
    Just say NO to Hillbitchery !!

  120. The GOP are going to hate this. Conspiracy it is Not, LOL you do nothing for America Morons. LOL GOP the wind just left your sails.

  121. Most people do not respect your cover ups Hilary–You have run out of luck and maybe your life long crime spree’s are about to unfold –the Clintons have skated the law too many times and now it is our turn–the American people want answers, not lies, not parsing words, no more cover ups and stop blaming the press and the republicans for things your responsible for—what is the real definition of the word IS ? The definition of crimes is prison fop most American citizens–the real story will be motion picture material when the Clinton Criminal Foundation is exposed for what it is–Charity, if you say donations of 5 cents on the dollars are legit? This Criminal Enterprise is all about Tax Evasion, Money Laundering. taking and hiding bribes and accepting illegal funds from foreign countries for the return of political favors–like fabricating a genocide story in Libya and ordering Nato to invade the country killing and injuring thousands and over throwing and killing there elected leader–Quaddaffi for openers–Clintons are about as criminal as it gets, you cross them your destroyed or dead–even killed 2 dogs as an example…Lets open this up and get to the bottom of this…

  122. No doubt about it..It is way more convenient to sift through 60,000+ emails by hand than carry two devices. Yep she is a real genius.
