    Hillary got caught in a changing technology. In principle she has done nothing more than various others in her position have done. The difference is that now there is often an email paper trail recording every thought and statement. Previously, people’s thoughts, personal conversations, and phone calls were their own and went unrecorded. The system is still figuring out how to handle the new technology and how it is best implemented and administered. Others in sensitive positions have kept their own server at home. Rules changed during her administration.

    It isn’t the changing technology as much as the conservatives trying to smear Hillary just the way they tried to smear President Obama before the election. Both Benghazi and this email “scandal” have been going on way to long. They spend millions investigating, hold numerous hearings, and issue numerous press releases. Clearly if something criminal was going on they would have found it long before this. All this crap is more electioneering by a party who can only field clowns as potential candidates. The sad part is while this is going on, nothing gets done in Washington to address the the real problems we face.

    Right. But, if you beat a dead horse long enough, the low-information fox voters will have something to believe in.

    “They spend millions investigating, hold numerous hearings, and issue numerous press releases.”

    Since the Clinton’s staked out many of the Republican’s more popular positions for themselves, (Free Trade, Welfare Reform, Tax Credits), all they can do is fling mud & hope it sticks.

    If she wasn’t trying to hide anything, why didn’t she give them an electronic, searchable copy instead of boxes and boxes of printouts? After all, they’re all on the thumb drive in her lawyer’s office.

    English Law (which applies in the US and the UK) is absolutely fair. The law against sleeping under bridges applies equally to rich and poor alike.


    But when a rich person has a great night at his club and decides it’s a nifty night for a walk and then (well, after all he had quite a great night) that a quick kip under a bridge he happens to be passing seems like a good idea, the constabulary will wake him and ask if they might call him a cab, and, if he has trouble agreeing, will extract his cellphone from his pocket, dial home, get the address, and put him in a cab. The fact that the homeless have neither the clothes nor the cellphone nor a home to go to makes them liable for the full majesty of the law.


    As Secretary of State, there was no law that requires the Secretary to use any particular e-mail, the way there is for ordinary employees. But the laws on classified documents are so complex that no one can keep them all straight, and it’s pretty much inevitable that everyone who must deal with classified documents will inadvertently commit a few felonies.


    So, if Ms Clinton loses the election, the next president (if very vindictive) will have every right to prosecute her for breaking some of those rules. Otherwise, she did nothing really wrong.

    Contradictory expression at best.

    “Hillary got caught in a changing technology…”
    The basic tech has been around for 30 years or so. Tech isn’t her problem. Her problem is arrogance, believing the rules don’t apply to her. The DOJ is controlled by the president so she’s safe.

    “Her problem is arrogance, believing the rules don’t apply to her.”
    Do you mean the rules that were not made until after she left her government position? The rules that the GOP/conservatives/tea-pottiers want to make retroactive to after Condi Rice leaving the same position?
