Despite everything Democrats claim about Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, it really is a big deal. She put America’s national security at risk for her own selfish purposes. She exposed classified intelligence to potential enemies of America and did so while serving as Secretary of State.
The situation is so bad that even the liberal New York Times is admitting the obvious:
Hillary Clinton’s Email Was Probably Hacked, Experts Say
When the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, said on Tuesday that his investigators had no “direct evidence” that Hillary Clinton’s email account had been “successfully hacked,” both private experts and federal investigators immediately understood his meaning: It very likely had been breached, but the intruders were far too skilled to leave evidence of their work.
Mr. Comey described, in fairly blistering terms, a set of email practices that left Mrs. Clinton’s systems wide open to Russian and Chinese hackers, and an array of others. She had no full-time cybersecurity professional monitoring her system. She took her BlackBerry everywhere she went, “sending and receiving work-related emails in the territory of sophisticated adversaries.” Her use of “a personal email domain was both known by a large number of people and readily apparent.”
In the end, the risks created by Mrs. Clinton’s insistence on keeping her communications on a private server may prove to be a larger issue than the relatively small amount of classified data investigators said they found on her system. But the central mystery — who got into the system, if anyone — may never be resolved.
“Reading between the lines and following Comey’s logic, it does sound as if the F.B.I. believes a compromise of Clinton’s email is more likely than not,” said Adam Segal, the author of “Hacked World Order,” who studies cyberissues at the Council on Foreign Relations. “Sophisticated attackers would have known of the existence of the account, would have targeted it and would not have been seen.”…
“Hostile actors gained access to the private commercial email accounts of people with whom Secretary Clinton was in regular contact,” he said.
Hillary Clinton should be disqualified from the presidency for this.
How can the American people be sure she wouldn’t be blackmailed by a hostile foreign government?
