    Anything can be compromised with enough sophistication and power.

    You're missing the premise. Hillary, Obama et al. are EVIL. They are HELPING THE ENEMY - ON PURPOSE!

    Once you grasp that, the rest makes (twisted and sad) sense.

    Hard to say. There are many avenues from which an attack can be mounted against virtually any system. It's a brave new world. There are also attacks and infiltrations which are low level and designed to push information to other places. It's a pretty sophisticated game sometimes, and appearances can be deceiving. Sometimes the objective is just inconvenience and embarrassment.

    Sure enough, however social engineering, viruses and keyloggers will never get you into a State Dept's server. Neither will the information that they produce. There simply is no transmittable information contained in any e-mail that would allow somebody to get into a State Dept server because they're not facebook accounts. You don't simply get a password and an account and you're good to go which is what you've been inferring for some time. That's why the entire premise that the WH/State Dept were hacked through some bit of information contained in Hillary's account is laughable if not outright mythical. This isn't a movie.

    When you're a state intelligence agency, the objective is never just to inconvenience and embarrass, especially not via a ****ing rolodex.

    They say stuff like yoga and that makes me think yoga pants and then I have to think Hillary in yoga pants and then it's every time.
    So knock it off.

    This place keeps getting nuttier and nuttier. I miss the days where the most we had to deal with were 9/11 conspiracy theories and Obama's birth certificates.

    These days we roll it all up into one big nutball. Then we roll it at people and see if it squashes them. As one can see, there are casualties.

    Hypothetically ... if Hillary was arranging Bill's speaking fee with a Foundation donor for whose business enterprise she was discussing details, would you consider that official or private?

    What do you need to hack into State Dept. servers? Just somebody's e-mail and password. It works like Facebook.
