    Because she kept them on her private server. That is the problem.

    Re: Clinton had no official State Dept. email address

    Update:

    Clinton

    A week before becoming secretary of state, Hillary Clinton set up a private e-mail system that gave her a high level of control over communications, including the ability to erase messages completely, according to security experts who have examined Internet records.
    .....
    It took less than a day for researchers to find potential problems with the Clinton’s system.

    Using a scanning tool called Fierce that he developed, Robert Hansen, a web-application security specialist, found what he said were the addresses for Microsoft Outlook Web access server used by Clinton’s e-mail service, and the virtual private network used to download e-mail over an encrypted connection. If hackers located those links, they could search for weaknesses and intercept traffic, according to security experts.

    Using those addresses, McGeorge discovered that the certificate appearing on the site Tuesday appeared to be the factory default for the security appliance, made by Fortinet Inc., running the service.
    Those defaults would normally be replaced by a unique certificate purchased for a few hundred dollars. By not taking that step, the system was vulnerable to hacking.
    Self-signed certs? Seriously amateur hour.

    No, it's the supposedly respectable media's fault for putting out a bunch of crap stories that don't do the basics, such as identify which law she actually is supposedly breaking, and making claims that BLOGGERS debunked in a matter of days by referencing......the law. It's now clear, for example, that there is no legal problem with her using a private email address, and certainly no problem with a "private" server. Would it have been better if she's used hillary@gmail.com?

    Yes, because Google would have stored all the emails, regardless of how many were deleted, which means they could be retrieved in their entirety. And Google's security is better than what her server had( see previous post ).

    With her team under total control, they can scrub whatever they want.

    The Associated Press is thinking about suing because their FOIA requests going back to 2010 didn't include emails from this server.

    But you've referenced no laws anywhere. It's fine and dandy to write an article pointing out what you did. But that isn't what happened. And from what I saw last night the same vulnerability existed for the "official" state department email accounts. And, again, that's a different article altogether.

    I'm actually not - I'll be happy if she does NOT run. But that's no reason to make excuses for BS reporting.

    The reporting is not BS.

    A High level Government official Setting up a personal Email server for the purpose of circumventing FOIA and Oversight Committee request is something worthy of investigation and should be reported on.

    eCFR — Code of Federal Regulations

    Been in place since the 1990s.

    Additionally, both the policy of the State Department and Obama Administration Counsel guidance stated to use official government addresses/equipment.
