    Clinton has already said she has no problem letting the public read those emails. Also, Colin Powell as well as Jeb Bush used private email accounts and the war drums aren't sounding off over those people.

    For the love of Pete. This is all we ever get out of DC anymore--grandstanding and bashing.
    Yeah, after she scrubbed her private server.

    You people are sooooo gullible.

    As much as I dislike the POTUS, I actually believe him in this case. Of all the things POTUS has on his list of priorities I am guessing how someone has their email server configured doesn't event make the list.

The software for secure email can be purchased off the shelf. Most mediocre IT people can set this up with little difficulty. ISP's have been doing this and reselling service for decades.


    It doesn't seem unreasonable that Hillary could do this.

    After all, with no training or experience, she ran a Livestock futures trading enterprise that NEVER made losing trade.

    The woman is astonishingly brilliant!

    Naturally with Hillary.....this obviously just meant the little people.





    Fox News has exclusively obtained an internal 2011 State Department cable that shows Secretary of State Clinton’s office told employees not to use personal email for security reasons, while at the same time, HRC conducted all government business on a private account. Sent to Diplomatic and Consular Staff in June 2011, the unclassified cable, with Clinton’s electronic signature, makes clear to “avoid conducting official Department from your personal e-mail accounts” and employees should not “auto-forward Department email to personal email accounts which is prohibited by Department policy.”

    The Cable was addressed to all diplomatic and consular posts with the subject line “Securing Personal E-mail Accounts.” While the cable told employees to secure personal/home email accounts given increased targeting of government employees, it makes clear that these personal accounts should never be used for government business and cites the departure procedures which prohibit the practices. The relevant section is from the Foreign Affairs Manual, 12, subsection 544.3.....snip~

    Just got this document from FNC's Catherine Herridge about Secretary Clinton and personal emails | Gretawire
    No. But he did know that people knew--at some point-- he was recording in office, right?

    Actually, Powell just commented on it this morning:

    Powell said it would be inappropriate to comment on Clinton’s email use. The State Department’s policy on personal email accounts dates back to 2005, the year Powell left the administration.

    “When I entered the State Department I found an antiquated system that had to be modernized and modernized quickly,” he said. “I started using [email] in order to get everybody to use it, so we could be a 21st-century institution and not a 19th-century [one]. But I retained none of those emails, and we are working with the State Department to see if there’s anything else they want to discuss with me about those emails.”

    So there is no comparison between Powell and Clinton.

    Nixon could have and very probably did so with that famous 18 minutes that are missing from the White house Tapes.

    However, he saw himself as a temporary occupant of the office that belonged to the people and that the taping system was a method of recording history that he felt was important.

    Our current administration has no such allegiance.

    If it does not contribute to winning the next election or garnering higher contributions, it is not important.

    Yeah. She also must do her own plumbing and carpentry work too, right? You honestly don't believe that Hillary did that do you? I'll guarantee you a company did it for her and handed her a bill for it if it did happen.

    Mornin' Code. They found one already.





    A. Any and all records of communication between Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Nagla Mahmoud, wife of ousted Egyptian president Muhammad Morsi, from January 21, 2009 to January 31, 2013; and
    B. Any and all records of communication between former State Department Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin and Nagla Mahmoud from January 21, 2009 to January 31, 2013. ....snip~

    Wonder why they are so specific about these emails with Morsi's wife, and all communications.
