So it turns out that under Hillary Clinton, the IT department was a server in someone's garage. No? Well, it might as well have been. She never used a government email address. The Secretary of State used her own, private email address for everything.
Lots of people have focused on the transparency issue - how can anyone ever get copies of her emails for audit and investigation purposes. That's not a big deal to me. At least not nearly as big as the threat of espionage, blackmail and massive breaches of security.
What do you think happened the first time someone in the Kremlin got an email from her home address? My bet is that an 8-figure bribe was prepared and various owners of Hillary's email chain approached. China, Iran and plenty of others had reasons to get in on the act.
Network security and network management is not there to hinder a Secretary of State. It's there to protect them.
Why was it that Hillary valued that protection less than the ability to keep all of her own records?
