    What is your view of Obama's daily briefing?

    Whenever any info that is sensitive is brought up, do they ask him to leave the room?

    This would explain a great deal about his policies, words and actions, but it does not provide a wide base for confidence in his awareness of the world.

    Heres the problem. Sure she is letting the public read the emails SHE has released. Are there emails that she hasn't released do you think? If so, what do they say? These are not private documents but public documents. Why do you suppose she set up her own private system rather than using the government system everyone else was using? Or don't you ask yourself those sorts of questions?
    Also, Colin Powell as well as Jeb Bush used private email accounts and the war drums aren't sounding off over those people.
    What were the circumstances and requirements during Colin Powells stint as Secretary of State? And in what ways are they similar/different than Clintons?

    There is a law that specifically requires state department employees to only use the official email accounts of the state department for official communication.

    Why again did Colin Powell keep an Official Email for Conducting government Business and keep personal account?
    Any digital info such as email is still on your computer or left on the server. All investigators need is a subpena and the ISP and they're reading emails--deleted or not.

    Wow, you have no idea WTF is going on do?

    On Wednesday, the Associated Press reported that the private email server installed at the Clintons' Chappaqua home was traced to a man named Eric Hoteham, though the AP could not find anyone with that name in public records or other online databases, according to Politico.

    After some investigation, it was uncovered that an Eric Hothem was an aide to Hillary Clinton during her time as first lady.

    For the love of Pete. This is all we ever get out of DC anymore--grandstanding and bashing.
    Would "those emails" be ONLY those that she (and/or her staff) selected and then presented for official review? That is much like telling the IRS that they can see all of the documentation of income that you chose to provide but may not audit all of your sales, inventory and bank deposit records.

    Nah, try again Carleen.....this time its the MS media who isn't buying it. You didn't want to say Gawker is Republican did you? What about the AP and NBC? Judicial Watch?



    Hillary Clinton supporters have defended her use of a private email account to conduct official State Department business by arguing that she emailed colleagues at their government addresses, ensuring that a copy of the correspondence would be retained on government servers and available to archivists. As it turns out, some aides to Hillary Clinton also used private email addresses. But even if Team Hillary's initial claim had held together, it wouldn't matter. Public records laws encompass not just correspondence with other government employees but also emails with third parties about government business.

    That's why a particular email flagged by J.K. Trotter is important. Back in 2013, a hacker secured access to the private email account of Sidney Blumenthal, a staffer in Bill Clinton's White House. The hacker sent screenshots of his inbox to various news outlets, including Gawker. "According to those screenshots, Blumenthal was regularly sending Clinton what appeared to be freelance intelligence reports—including information and advice about the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya—all of which clearly fell under the rubric of official State Department business," Trotter writes. "At the time, Gawker noted that Clinton’s apparent use of the non-official account likely violated federal regulations governing records retention, and sent inquiries directly to Clinton and to the White House asking if messages to the clintonemail.com address were being retained."

    Gawker also "filed a FOIA request with the agency for all correspondence to date between Hillary Clinton and Sidney Blumenthal," Trotter continues, "specifically including any messages to or from the hdr22@clintonemail.com account." We now know that email address did, in fact, belong to former Secretary of State Clinton. Had she been following the rules and forwarding all email about official business to government servers, the State Department would've found the Blumenthal email. They found nothing.....snip~

    Then why is Colin Powell walking in public and not behind bars?

    No IT expert here.

    You brought up the example of a magnetic tape. That was the example to which I responded.

    However, if the hard drive of the computer is switched out out of a personal computer and destroyed, there is no longer a record on that computer. You may remember this from the IRS investigation also stone walled by this same administration.

    These crooks are relying on those who plug their ears and close their eyes to get away with it.

    Well smarty, they weren't held by an ISP. They were on a small server, in her home, under her control.

    Now it's your turn to explain how that's not a problem.
