    Clinton had no official State Dept. email address

    Clinton had no official State Dept. email address - CNN.com

    Washington (CNN)Hillary Clinton did not have a State Department email account while she served as America's top diplomat, a senior state department official said Monday, and instead used a personal email account during her four years on the job.

    The New York Times first reported Clinton's exclusive use of a personal email account on Monday night.
    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/03/us...lags.html?_r=0

    Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, State Department officials said, and may have violated federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record.

    Mrs. Clinton did not have a government email address during her four-year tenure at the State Department. Her aides took no actions to have her personal emails preserved on department servers at the time, as required by the Federal Records Act.
    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?

    Clintons don't operate by law or morality.

    This has been long established.

    Re: Clinton had no official State Dept. email address

    Just so we're clear, the Secretary of State hardly needs an official email address (and especially doesn't need to cull out all the spam, viruses, and other junk). He or she has plenty of aides to handle correspondence.

    That being said, doing government business from a personal email account is a definite no-no.
    I fight against the ignorant, irresponsible, and/or closed-minded.
    This group is the worst enemy of America and its freedoms. It includes, but is not limited to, all Trump supporters.

    Also, the security people would have vetted and scanned and scrambled and protected and all I would hope. But you never know.

    I hope who ever this matters to investigates her to the fullest. I wish them all the best in their investigations and hearings.

    I hope she is released from prison in time to take the oath of office...If not She will be the first President in US history to have her swearing in... in prison.

    If I were Secretary of State, I wouldn't have one either.

    Eugene Debs got more votes in the presidential race that took place when he was in prison than he ever did when he was free. (shrug)

    Unlikely.

    She had ZERO impact when she lent her support and influence to Democrats who lost their jobs in the 2014 midterms.
