State Department Clobbers Clinton In Email Server Audit

When Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, she violated federal rules by using a private email server at her New York home to conduct government business, the State Department’s inspector general alleged Wednesday.

The official claimed Clinton did not ask for permission to use the server, and that officials would have told her not to do so, the Daily Mail reported. He wrote that she could have allowed hackers to obtain classified information. The report noted that a Clinton aide shut down the server in 2011 after detecting that it had been attacked. He then advised the secretary’s associates to avoid emailing her “anything sensitive.”

Following a subsequent hack, Clinton allegedly declared that she feared opening messages on the server, though she did not tell the State Department about it. “Notification is required when a user suspects compromise of, among other things, a personally owned device containing personally identifiable information,” the inspector general wrote. “However, (we) found no evidence that the secretary or her staff reported these incidents to computer-security personnel or anyone else within the department.”

He continued: “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. At a minimum, (she) 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.”
