    Apparently her boss' Administration kept telling her to stop using her personal email address. I also think she's incredibly foolish if she didn't know that she shouldn't be conducting business on behalf of the USA from a personal email account on her private server. In my company that's grounds for termination. Probably a lot of other companies as well. I can imagine that Obama is not very happy with her right now, nor should he be.
    And to think... this was discovered by a hacker. A hacker.

    You don't think the Chinese and Russians, NK or others haven't penetrated her server or the accounts of others that have been in contact with her?
    The Clintons are what happens...

    Re: Hillary Clinton Tweets That She Wants Her Email Released To The Public

    The Washington Post isn't on her side either:

    Hillary Clinton’s tweet isn’t going to solve her e-mail problem. Not even close.

    <snip>

    Remember that the State Department doesn't HAVE all of Clinton's e-mails. They are held on her own private e-mail server. That's the problem. The 55,000 pages of e-mails she has turned over to State were selected by either Clinton or someone on her team.

    Given that, a better tweet might have been: "I am going to turn over all of my e-mails -- as soon as I can." Putting the burden on State is sort of a red herring; this isn't really the State Department's fault. Clinton chose to exclusively use a private e-mail account against guidance from the Obama administration. Why she did so remains to be seen -- she hasn't said -- but because of that choice, it's incumbent upon her to make more e-mails available.

    The way Clinton's tweet is phrased -- and, yes, I am parsing words here but the totality of what she has said on the matter amounts to 26 words -- suggests that she has asked State to release the contents of the 55,000 pages of e-mails she has turned over. Which is fine -- and better than nothing. But, again, those are the e-mails that Clintonworld decided should be turned over. That's not exactly the classic definition of transparency.

    As Clinton tweets and her former top communications aide at State feuds with reporters, the political problems surrounding her e-mail practices continue to mount. A special House committee dedicated to investigating the attacks of Sept. 11, 2012, in Benghazi, Libya, issued subpoenas Wednesday in search of more information about the e-mail address. The Associated Press is weighing legal action over the long delays in response to Freedom of Information Act requests regarding the Clinton records at State.

    And it's likely to get worse for Clinton before it gets better. Already, the way she handled her e-mail is being regarded as symbolic of a broader problem with her approach to public service. Here's the Washington Post editorial board Thursday in a piece titled "Hillary Clinton’s use of private e-mail reflects poor judgment":

    I suggest Hillary release all her emails from her server to the Benghazi Committee, and to the State Dept. Personal and otherwise. Everything. She skirted the system, she is untrustworthy... as far as I'm concerned that was the default SoS server... and the contents are our property.
    Sounds like a pretty smart move by the Hillary camp to me.......

    Precisely why the rule/law required the use of a server controlled by a third party. If we could simply trust these folks then we would not need to see their Emails in the first place.

    I think she should make them public or understand that she has proven herself to be dishonest, and not complain when her opponents use this against her (and they will - on both sides).

    If I were John Kerry, I would require that she turn all of her emails over, not just the ones she thinks are okay for their consumption.

    In the meantime, she's getting hammered in the press by everyone, even the left leaning media (not the partisan idiots at Media Matters, but they go way back, so they aren't exactly impartial to her). And on boars ike this. And she deserves it. The rules do apply to her, whether she believes so or not.

    B. Hussein Obama is a damned lying collectivist, too, but that didn't keep the American people, in their wisdom, from electing him. Twice. I think this broad-beamed hag's worst problem politically is not her brazen, habitual lying--people have come to expect leftists to be liars--but her age and suspicions about her health.

    Those people are prolific hackers, no question.

    Following the rule/law that required the use of an official server in the first place. This is not some accident that HRC suffered - she purposefully chose to create this situation. If you trust her then why not just take her at her word? If you do not trust her then she has had ample time (over two years) to doctor the "official" archives she is now offering up.

    Apparently just like Colin Powell's staff revealed. Oh....

    Well you can certainly demand anything you want. But if you and others don't trust her to cede to those demands or that all the relevant emails even exist (or are undoctored), then what do you suggest be done? Send in a SWAT team? Bury her up to her neck and cover her head in honey and ants?
