  • Hillary(ous) talks about her emails

    If you haven't heard, the controversy is that Hillary used her personal email account to receive national job related emails on her personal account.

    When called on it she came up with a pretty lame excuse:

    "When I got to work as secretary of state," she said, "I opted for convenience to use my personal e-mail account — which was allowed by the State Department — because I thought it would be easier to carry just one device for my work and for my personal e-mails instead of two."

    Derp! I have had multiple email accounts on my iphone for years. Not a problem.

    Plus....

    She admitted on TV that she carries an iphone and a blackberry already, as well as an ipad.


    This is as bad as the Lerner "lost emails" fiasco.

    Well, having two email accounts on a single device IS pretty inconvenient.

        Yeah. The excuses made by politicians are so lame I can't believe anyone takes them seriously, on any level.

          and what is really scary is that these people run the world, and control nuclear missiles and they don't even know how to use an iPhone.

            Dick Morris, who worked for the Clintons and has made it obvious for years that he loathes Hilary, is saying don't expect to find much in her emails. That is, he says, because she can't type (she always takes notes on yellow legal pads and wrote her book outlines by hand). He suggests checking the emails of her aides, Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills, and notes that Hillary set up and used private emails with them for official business.

            I'm always still in trouble again

              So is the use of a personal email for official business illegal, or just against policy? I'm a little foggy on the details.

                Seems like a big security risk to me. It's not that hard to hack a personal email server. I would think the official government servers are a bit more secure, and backed up regularly. They also have IT people available to instantly check on any hacking attempts.

                Hillary's email server sounds like it was just set up on a personal computer, by some computer nerd friend of theirs.

                  EGGzackly --- like when somebody's hard drive failed and they said they lost all the emails --- only a computer incompetent person would NOT know that emails are stored on a server, not on the individual machine.

                  (though, the individual machine can certainly have a cached copy of all the emails)

                    Makes you wonder. Don't they actually check their made-up excuses with experts before announcing them to the world? Surely they have some actual IT experts around that can tell them that what they are saying is nonsense.

                      It is in the liberal training manual that people are stupid, and will believe anything you tell them.

                        There are federal requirements to "retain" email and be able to produce them should a motion for discovery ever be filed. The government servers meet these retention policies. There is no guaranty that individual email accounts do, or can.

                          Well they sure do (the democrats)

                          Or maybe the IT folks were laughing so hard they couldn't get the words out that Hillary was making such a lame excuse.
