Hillary really needs to get out there and explain the server issue behind what the GOP is alleging.

They get on TV and claim that she compromised national security, that her server was hacked, that she passed classified information on her server etc. None of which has been proven true. They say she violated the law...I thought it was all about violating internal SOS rules. Are they talking about the FOIA Act? Deid the Act change. Personal e-mails are subject to FOIA? I guess I am behind the times.

If she was SOS during the time bin Laden was captured, why wasn't that operation compromised? I guess the alleged hackers didn't find that interesting? At any rate, I believe the FBI should hurry up and finish their investigation so that Hillary can get on with her campaign OR suffer whatever consequences they charge her with. If anything happens to her candidacy I sure don't want Bernie for President. I want time for the decisions to be made to nominate and elect another Democrat not Bernie.

The FBI "investigation" will conclude, probably with conclusions similar to the State Dept. review (essentially, that security at State sucks), and no one will care anymore except the people who made this an issue in the first place.

between a wall and hard place. The more she talks about it (she did some this week)--seems the more fodder they have. The RW--and yes, many Sanders fans out there are hitting with national security crap. I do not know.

via email at all. So, there was no risk of any major secrets being compromised. This is why it was a story back when they retrospectively reclassified several of Hillary and Colin Powell's emails a few months ago, remember.

I saw a good interview somewhere this week (probably MSNBC, since that is mostly what I watch) with a former State Department employee who said that the email rules were pretty much a joke to all the employees. None of them actually printed out and filed every email, and if there was something that they didn't want a record of, they just made a phone call.
