    And how many people in either major party own up to their hypocrisy?

    Probably the best she can do is string things along until the next election...hoping her Democratic base won't let such things prevent them from voting for her. If she can't do that, I'm afraid her campaign is going to be over before it gets started...and she could end up with a criminal record.
    They definitely won't. Especially not if the alternative is an election-rigger.

    You know, no one has come up with a good reason why this is a major crisis NOW. Everyone who emailed her - or got an email from her - knew she was using a private account. If there was a problem, it should have been brought up then.

    I can only assume this is a fake crisis to try to derail her run for the presidency.

    Well, let's hope it has that effect as well. No, it's not a fake issue, and there's probably others doing it as well. At any rate, this needs to be about national security. No politicians or diplomats should be conducting official business on personal e-mail systems. This is solved by issuing .gov addresses to all government employees and requiring their use and archiving. And prosecution of anyone caught conducting official business on personal systems.

    Her subordinates at State cannot reasonably have been expected to call out their boss. It is a crisis now because BHO campaign operatives fed the story to the NYT.

The powers given in the 1950 bill does not use the word "records", and it strictly limits what can be collected. The amendment passed in 2014 broadens the powers to the words "records defined" which gives a much broader amount of power.

    But none the less I guess it was just "unclear" in my pasts posts. Maybe this will make it a bit more clear: "Finally, like the amendments to the PRA, the amendments to the FRA also include language that would provide that an employee of an executive agency may not create or send a record from a nonofficial electronic messaging account without ensuring such record was submitted to an official electronic messaging account.". http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/CRPT-11...113srpt218.pdf I mean, I thought it was pretty clear before... Is it still "false" or "unclear"? Or has it been made clear yet?
    In other words, as long as Hillary was replying to State Dept/other federal employees to their government email accounts, I.e., "state.gov", she had every reason to believe her emails would become part of State Dept permanent record even if her email replies were initiated from a private email account.

    Under the law as revised, that makes sense. That's not to say she may not have taken certain personal liberties with "scrubbing" her own emails, but who among asking us hadn't?

    I go through my emails regularly and delete old emails I've sent that are no longer relevant all the time. And that which I miss gets archived. Of course, the question as to what, if anything, wasn't archived that could have been considered "official -vs- personal/private" and who has jurisdiction over the email review process does need to be resolved especially if any of her email replies involved a critical "decision" only she could make as SOS.

    Overall, I think this entire ordeal is more an exercise in search of that "gotcha" moment, but as I said previously let's see what those other 300 emails that got turned over to congressional investigators heading up Benghazi-Gate turn up.

    Again, Good Luck!
