The NY Times reports that Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, according to State Department officials. She may have violated federal requirements that officials' correspondence be retained as part of the agency's record.

Clinton did not have a government email address during her four-year tenure at the State Department. Her aides took no actions to have her personal emails preserved on department servers at the time, as required by the Federal Records Act. "It is very difficult to conceive of a scenario — short of nuclear winter — where an agency would be justified in allowing its cabinet-level head officer to solely use a private email communications channel for the conduct of government business," said attorney Jason R. Baron. A spokesman for Clinton defended her use of the personal email account and said she has been complying with the "letter and spirit of the rules."

    Uhhhh...isn't that the exact. same. thing. that Cheney done in 06 that nobody said or did squat about? I always thought it sad how bad of a bunch of hypocrites BOTH SIDES are in US politics, how the flag wavers will bend over backwards to excuse any behavior when THEIR guy does it but scream bloody murder when the other side does the exact same thing. See this with Clinton, Obama and Bush when it came to wiretaps, it just goes on and on.

    But I seem to remember a rather large amount of White House emails being routed through servers ran by the RNC, which is also illegal, which is why a lot of the behind the scenes for the Bush energy policy talks and the run up to the Iraq war never ended up in the records like they were supposed to. Not saying either one was right, but there really does need to be one standard upheld for all or its nothing more than political bullshit.

    ACs are never seen so don't bother. Always ready to show SJWs for the racists they are.

    ..., which is why a lot of the behind the scenes for the Bush energy policy talks...

    Don't try to defame G.W. Bush's energy policy. It was the single most successful policy of his administration. That policy being "line the pockets of the energy companies."
