It’s really time for Clinton to give it up

05.25.16 11:54 AM

A new watchdog report on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s handling of sensitive emails during her time in the position leaves no doubt that the Democratic presidential frontrunner purposely flouted security rules.

According to the report from the department’s Office of the Inspector General, Clinton should have requested permission to use a personal email server while serving at State. She didn’t. And even if she had, the IG said, the request would have been denied because of “security risks.”

Because she didn’t request government approval for the personal server, Clinton also never verified that the devices she used to send and receive official correspondence “met minimum information security requirements.”

Her private server also didn’t include safeguards to make sure Clinton complied with the Federal Records Act, which outlines appropriate methods for preserving official government documents.

“Therefore, Secretary Clinton should have preserved any federal records she created and received on her personal account by printing and filing those records with the related files in the Office of the Secretary,” it said. “At a minimum, Secretary Clinton should have surrendered all emails dealing with Department business before leaving government service and, because she did not do so, she did not comply with the department’s policies that were implemented in accordance with the Federal Records Act.”

It’s also worth noting that State’s IG interviewed Secretary of State John Kerry, along with former top diplomats Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell and Madeleine Albright— but Clinton opted not to provide comment.

Why wouldn’t she want to comment? Because it’s becoming very clear that she wiped her server with much more than “a cloth” and that she’s quickly running out of ways to play dumb.

She didn’t want records to be accurately kept. In fact, the IG “identified one email exchange occurring shortly before Secretary Clinton joined the Department that demonstrated a reluctance to communicate” to staff a requirement to print and file all government-related emails.

Another email unearthed during the investigation reveals that even when her private account was causing problems, Clinton still rejected the idea of disclosing her personal server use to the proper officials.

In November 2010, Huma Abedin suggested to Clinton, “[W]e should talk about putting you on state email or releasing your email address to the department so you are not going to spam.” *Clinton responded that she’d rather “get separate address or device but I don’t want any risk of the personal being accessible.”

Of course, the former top diplomat also had a bit of trouble determining the difference between what she was supposed to turn over to State and what was purely personal when she cleaned out her inbox. The IG reported that investigators turned up multiple emails Clinton should have handed over but failed to include in the approximately 55,000 pages of emails she gave the department.
