    Hillary should take a page from W. and just destroy them altogether.

    I would like to see what those complaining about her email would do if the government came to them and insisted they turn over all their emails for the last ten years or so. Clearly this is just more harassment and Hillary bashing. Unfortunately the result will be the same a do nothing Congress for the next four years. The sad part is we are paying the bill for them to do nothing.

    Carrying charges for borrowed capital are bouncing along just above zero and have been literally FOR YEARS. It is the PERFECT financial moment for long term investments. BUY LOW? Have you heard that phrase?

    Wake up, Congress. Do something that will benefit the Country, the ENTIRE Country for a change. Hello?
    -
    Meanwhile, stop it with the Hillary’s-a-Thief meme, Catalino. Get real. A Democrat that can match RepubliCon spending may be YOUR worst nightmare, but The Hill’s playing the same game as the Koch’s and Sheldon, EXACTLY the same.

    You don’t like that game? How’s about you Toon for a change in the rules, eh?

    If this is about emails, remember, some of this is secret information which should not be released as it can get people killed. (tho I do get suspicious as to who gets to decide what is which.)

    I’m not a government employee who was required by law to keep my emails on a government controlled server.

    “I’m not a government employee who was required by law to keep my emails on a government controlled server”.

    Neither was Hillary required to keep all her emails on a government server, just as Condi and Colin weren’t.

    Valerie Jarrett will help with the release of those emails from when Hillary was Sec.of State and some other stuff the Clinton’s are hiding too.Like payments to the foundation.

    Since 2009, NARA’s regulations have stated that “Agencies that allow employees to send and receive official electronic mail messages using a system not operated by the agency must ensure that Federal records sent or received on such systems are preserved in the appropriate agency recordkeeping system.”

    Psaki said State would identify why portions of emails may be redacted, but didn’t answer questions about whether State would acknowledge whether information was redacted because it was classified.

    The Associated Press reported Friday that one of the emails was classified Friday at the FBI’s request but was unclassified at the time Clinton received it. Clinton has said she did not send or receive classified material on her private account. She said again Friday that “all of the information in the emails was handled appropriately.”

    “Clinton allies argue that she is not the first secretary of state to use a private account. In fact, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said last month, “For some historical context, Secretary Kerry is the first secretary of state to rely primarily on a state.gov email account.”

    Addressing the Federal Records Act, NPR’s Scott Horsley reported last month on the question of whether Clinton’s exclusive reliance on a private email account violated it. Here’s some of what he reported:

    “A State Department spokeswoman says Hillary Clinton did not break any rules by relying solely on her personal email account. Federal law allows government officials to use personal email so long as relevant documents are preserved for history.”

    “The law was amended in late 2014 to require that personal emails be transferred to government servers within 20 days. But that was after Clinton left office. Watchdog groups conceded that she may not have violated the text of the law, but they argue she violated the spirit of it.”

    The above is opinions and facts of people that know more than me about government e-mails and previous history.

    My view is so far it has not been proven that she has broken the law and seems to have done what every other Secretary of State has done before her. I do not think that she is out of the woods yet, but her push to get all the e-mails out makes me think she has nothing to hide.

    I am not a big fan of Hillary but I do believe in innocent until proven guilty. I do not take her word on the subject any more than I take critics’ words on the subject. Instead, I look at people in the government who job it is to secure government e-mail and objective reporting to be informed. I also think all candidates e-mails should be held to the same scrutiny. It would be interesting to see who lobbied these Congressmen and Senators and before what bills, not that that would be illegal. I do not look at all the Presidential candidates as guilty until proven innocent as apparently many conservatives do of Hillary. There is a rule of law not mob rule.

    She does get to decide what e-mail is personal. Which she did with the help of her staff by using keyword searchs like e-mail mention Chelsea and no job related words. I doubt if anyone looked at each e-mail to filter out personal. She does not get to decide what is classified information and is not. There is a difference between government e-mail and classified. Classified e-mail or redacted portions of e-mail is often decide just before e-mail is released to the public.

    I do not think that having a personal server and mixing personal and government e-mail is a good thing. I am surprised that apparently has been going on for a long time. Hopefully with Secretary Kerry a new precedence can be set.

    You do have to violate the text of the law to break the law. Beyond that there is a lot of grey. The spirit of the law is subjective. At the time of her being Secretary of State, the law and the previous practice of it was ambiguous. I do not think she was breaking the spirit of the law given previous practice though from looking at it in current circumstances and times I can see why now people would say she broke the spirit of the law but that could said of her predecessors.

    With all the investigation by Congress and reporters on Benghazi and only now does it come out that she used a private e-mail server, I suspect there were Republicans sitting on this.

    Newest revelation from the Hillary e-mails: Mrs. Clinton began plotting damage control on Benghazi WITHOUT EVEN GETTING OUR AMBASSADOR’S NAME RIGHT. She called him “Chris Smith”, and was off to the races to excuse-making land. The dead bodies weren’t even cold yet, and Hillary was wiping the crumbs off her face and scheming maximum deniability.

    @manteo16nc

    She put two names together.

    When Clinton e-mails to check on the status of Ambassador Chris Stevens, she mistakenly refers to him as Chris Smith in the subject line. Whether she was referring to Chris Steven or Sean Smith, who both died in the attack.
