    It was kinda a ZERO impact election. Republicans have had ZERO impact since 2014 midterms. (...or before)

    Maybe, maybe not. We shall have to wait and see. But your take is not what other liberal pundits are even saying...

    Wow. She created a private domain to house her email on the first day of her confirmation hearings in 2009, and never had an official federal email account.


    How is it that nobody at the federal level thought to ask why everything that went to Clinton was off the books?
    The IT practices of this administration are atrocious! And the pro-neuters expect the government to handle the internet just as well as the ISPs! .
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    But this problem of using personal emails HAS been going on way too long. Secretary Kerry is the first Secretary of State, ever, to predominantly use the government email address. Secretary Hagel, the freaking Secretary of Defense, also used non-government emails.

    And, yes, it happened back during the Bush era as well with other high level officials such as Karl Rove. The Chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee at the time said the exchange indicated that in some instances, White House officials were using nongovernmental accounts "specifically to avoid creating a record of communications" that are nonetheless subject to the committee's jurisdiction.

    I am not using the "Bush did it too crap" as a counter. I am using it to hit home the point that it is inexcusable that this stuff has been going on WAY too long. Probably even before Bush. Hiding emails from oversight is just one of the problems to this. If the government isn't in control of the servers these emails are sitting on, then the government isn't in control of the SECURITY of the servers either. Even if they are not sending classified emails on these accounts it would still be a prime target for foreign intelligence agencies.

    This is serious ****, regardless of the politics of the people doing it. This is a systemic problem that has to be fixed NOW.
    Ok, thanks for clearing that up.

    Lol !!

    It's kind of funny dealing with people that are in the thows of a full blown episode of terminal delusion.

    Democrats are especially susceptible to its crippling effects and have been for at least the last 15 years.

    You people actually believe we're in the middle of a economic recovery, and that Obama is a skilled and competent leader.

    Ideology comes first, huh ? Even before truth and reality.

Then I looked at Jeb Bush's email and found this at the bottom of one of this emails:

    "Please note: Florida has a very broad public records law.
    Most written communications to or from state officials regarding
    state business are public records available to the public and
    media upon request. Your e-mail communications may
    therefore be subject to public disclosure."

    What a louse! I also assume he had at least one personal email account. I mean, if state or federal officials want things kept off the record, they'll make sure it's off the record. And at the same time, the powers that be aren't going to allow the Secretary of State to operate independently and without oversight. I don't understand why this story is any more angering than what happens every day in Washington.
    To the bolded. What's all the fuss over then??

    Re: Clinton had no official State Dept. email address

    Given things like the Chelsea Manning hack, her emails may have been safer on her private account...

    I do agree they should all be given to the govt for storage and retrieval under FOIA requests. I'm not bent out of shape because she used a private email account as prior SOS's have done.

    Yes, no fuss at all over Obama's Secretary of state violating the Federal Records act and going out of her way to make sure her Emails couldn't be secured by any future Congressional Committee investigations.

    The most " transparent " administration in History, huh ?

    Progressives lies are catching up to this administration.

    You're not bent out of shape because she's Hillary Clinton, the Democrat. I mean lets be honest.

    And which previous Secretary of state went to this extent to remain under the radar ?

    Which previous Sec of State exclusively ised a private email account to make sure their communications couldn't be accessed by FOIA request ?

    One of the reason why this is a isssue is because there's a Committee thats in the middle of a investigation that needs access to her Email, and not just the one's she's willing to allow them to see.
