    You asked for a link or a direct quote. I provided the link, and her email habit is well documented. Nice try.

    Nah. I find the allegation credible. That doesn't mean I'm obliged to provide the legal argument.

    False equivalence. A layman by definition cannot provide a legal argument. Those who have made the claim seem credible to me. Your strenuous defense here is wasted motion. The legal matter will be decided in law offices and (perhaps) court rooms. The political matter will be decided in newsrooms.

    So the appeal to authority fallacy.

    As you wish. I consider it prudent modesty.

    Hillary Clinton

    HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON has served as first lady, a senator from New York and secretary of state. She is no newcomer to the corridors of power. Her decision to exclusively use a private e-mail account while secretary suggests she made a deliberate decision to shield her messages from scrutiny. It was a mistake that reflects poor judgment about a public trust.
    Under the rules as they existed during Ms. Clinton’s time as secretary, from 2009 to 2013, government officials were not strictly required to use official e-mail accounts. However, in 2011 the White House spokesman, Jay Carney, said, “We are definitely instructed that we need to conduct all of our work on our government accounts . . . .” He said it was “administration policy” to use government accounts. Did this not apply to Ms. Clinton at the State Department?
    If government officials did use private e-mails for public business, they were required to consider the e-mails to be equivalent to government records and to preserve them. Ms. Clinton took her e-mail with her when she left office in 2013, and then, in December, when asked by the State Department, turned over 55,000 pages of e-mails from the private account. Her spokesman said that in cases when she wrote to department officials at their formal addresses, those e-mails should still be in the department’s system. President Obama signed amendments to a law last November that require government employees who use private e-mail for official business to forward it to government systems within 20 days. . . .

    Blindly follow political pundits that agree with me, with no consideration to the facts!

    I don't see much ideology in this discussion.

    I do. You have openly stated that she is violating the wall, when asked why you link to a pundits claims, all of which have been answered here using the official law. Then you still made claims not backed up by factual information, had when asked to provide the backing behind the claims the reply is, "I cant because of modesty. And look I have pundits making accusations" (all of which have been proven false). Its clear there is an ideology. You dont like her. I get it it. But you not liking her, does not mean she broke the law.
