2. She mentions senior official John Bentel...

That name is going to become more and more familiar, I think.

In late 2010, two State Department staff members raised concerns about Clinton's private email account in meetings with John A. Bentel, then director of the Office of Information Resources Management, the agency's computer services unit. Bentel, identified only by title in the report, also declined to be interviewed during the inspector general's review.

In one meeting with Bentel, a staff member worried that messages sent or received using the private server could contain documents that needed to be preserved under federal regulations.

Bentel told the staff member that State Department legal staff had "reviewed and approved" the server— though the inspector general's review found no evidence such a review had ever occurred. In that meeting and another that Bentel had with a different staff member who raised concerns, Bentel directed the staff members to "never to speak of the secretary's personal email system again."

Clinton's campaign has long insisted her system was well-protected. The AP reported last year that the server's security configuration could have allowed users to control it remotely , a practice that computer security experts widely say is vulnerable to hackers. And in January 2011, according to the inspector general report, a Bill Clinton aide wrote to Abedin that he had to shut down the system because Clinton's server had been targeted by outsiders.

3. But it's really about nothing!

 

So claim her supporters.
Sorry, Hillary lied. She jeopardized the security of the country.
Yet her supporters refuse to believe things despite evidence to the contrary.

13. "Yet her supporters refuse to believe things..."

 

...despite evidence to the contrary."

This continues to absolutely mystify me.

The closest thing I can recall parallel to this is the peculiar cognitive dissonance Republicans had toward George W. Bush after all the lies he told, one right after the other.

But Bush is a Republican -- I would expect and hope that enlightened Democrats would be far different. Alas.

4. Well darling, you know how right-wing blinders tend to pervert reality.

So you shouldn't be surprised that you are twisting reality again.

Such distortions are a Republican-skewed regularity with you.

7. Did you watch the clip? MSNBC?

There is not twisting, there's just a great deal of authentic incredulity being expressed by these members of one of the more left-leaning among media outlets.

5. Andrea represents the values and the thinking of 'seniors'

All across America there are millions of HRC's core constituency pondering this same question.

They desperately need a new narrative. Com'on BROCK! The peoples needs you more than ever!

6. A revealing update report from the Associated Press (AP) A Snip:

from the article:

Over time, through media accounts and now details in the inspector general's report, a clearer picture has emerged of Clinton's email system and its use: A basement computer, running Microsoft server software, directly connected to the internet to handle communications between Clinton and her aides. But it is still not clear how well her system was secured at the time, especially in light of new hacking attempts disclosed by the inspector general's report.

In the first months of Clinton's tenure, only her most trusted political-appointee aides used or were clued into the existence of her server, according to the report. Outside that privileged circle, other senior officials scattered across the department had "some awareness" of her use of private emails to communicate internally — often because her emails to them originate

Clinton declined to be interviewed for the inspector general report — despite Clinton saying as recently as this month that she was happy to "talk to anybody, anytime" about the matter and would encourage her staff to do the same. Three former senior aides, Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills and Jake Sullivan, also declined. A fourth former top aide, Thomas Nides, did not reply to the inspector general's requests. Abedin and Sullivan are now Clinton campaign aides and Nides, currently vice chairman of the Morgan Stanley financial services firm, is a major Clinton fundraiser.

11. All still active. A person isn't loved because you find a point of agreement nor

is a person "thrown under the bus" because there is a disagreement, not even necessarily if it is a severe one.

15. ABSOLUTELY! That IS The More Significant Aspect Of This Report... Hillary Betrayed Andrea Mitchell..

by LYING DIRECTLY TO HER FACE... and NOW after that, Andrea Mitchell who has long been "shilling" for The Establishment "Pick..." now has come out and exposed her along with another top reporter... again... long having been a "shill" for Hillary Chuck Todd.

Hillary has not another soul to blame for the present turn of events but to look in the mirror and ask herself... "Why do I have such ...POOR JUDGEMENT?"

She should ask herself... Why do I do these things? This is ONLY the beginning.....

12. When did she smarten up? Andrea has been enabling Hillary's lies about this for years.

Like all the other MSM talking heads, she's been repeating HRC campaign talking points going back to Hillary's big photo-op at the UN where Hillary claimed she used her own email simply for "convenience" and had never sent or received anything classified.
