I’d Call It a Smoking Gun, BUT

…those only seem to wind up laying next to the people working for her.

    It will be dismissed as ‘old news’ & everyone will be told it’s time to move on.

    In some ways, I actually agree with her – most of what is “classified” is nonsense. OTOH, what she should have done (IF that was her reason) was to raise hell, not sneak around.

    Kathy, I have to point out that her job wasn’t to decide what laws she felt like abiding by.

  4. Kathy Kinsley says:

    Well, of course it wasn’t. But she was also required to Get The Job Done. Catch 22.

    (And yes, I’d be very happy if this would make her unqualified for President. But.)

    As someone who has handled classified information, the proper (and legal) response to the secure fax not working is “FIX THE STUPID THING!”

    I doubt Hillary had declassification authority as Secretary of State. That’s the other *legal* approach to this solving this problem. As the Cabinet officer, she (should have) had tech support out the wazoo.

    I imagine, though, that she kept all of her official IT support at arms length, so that when something goes down, the response time was longer than it should have been.

    PS: A secure fax is considered an ALTERNATE means of sending electronic messages securely. The primary is [drum roll] e-mail….UNLESS you don’t have secure e-mail. That she seemed to have depended on it as the primary is very unusual.

    So this SHOULD be a smoking gun. But the Clintonistas have their little ways.

    Huh, a person who set up a homebrew server to thwart official oversight winds up having tech problems she can’t fix? And then does criminal stuff to get around it?

    The devil you say.

    It would be true poetic justice to arrest her at a the damned Democratic National Convention, frog march her out, and stash her, uncharged, in an unknown jail cell for as long as that schlub videographer was held. Even that wouldn’t be enough to answer for Ambassador Stevens and his party, but I’ll accept it as down payment. What an abominable person she is.

    nightfly, I like the way you think. The only thing that would make it better is if when they were marching her out, kicking and screaming, she knocked over a stage curtain, behind which, Bill was getting a bj from Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

    Well, if you’re gonna dream, might as well dream big.
