ICYMI: Hillary Clinton Broke The Rules: Our View

- May 31, 2016

Excerpts from USA Today


By: Editorial Board 
Tuesday, May 31, 2016

“Everyone, including Hillary Clinton, now agrees that the newly confirmed secretary of State made a mistake in 2009 when she decided, for the sake of “convenience,” to run her own email system out of her home in Chappaqua, N.Y. ...
 
“But a new report by State's inspector general makes clear that within two years, Clinton's bad decision had turned into something far worse: a threat to national security, one that she repeatedly ignored despite multiple warnings …
 
“Those warnings ... should have made any responsible public official, even one without Clinton’s access to classified information on cyber threats from the vast U.S. intelligence network, aware of the national security dangers of failing to secure the secretary of State’s email communications.
 
“Instead, Clinton and several of her top aides continued to use personal email for sensitive State Department business thousands of times.
 
“If Clinton wants to become the president of the United States, she needs to explain how she could make such a reckless decision. She had a chance to answer questions when the Obama administration-appointed inspector general contacted her about the investigation that was released last week. Among five recent secretaries of State, only Clinton refused.
 
“While Clinton is under potential criminal investigation by the FBI for the mishandling of classified material sent through her email, remaining silent might be in her best interests and it is certainly her right. But to be president, she is going to have to convince voters that she can put the national security of the United States above her own short-term self-interest.
 
“It's already clear that, in using the private email server, Clinton broke the rules. Now it remains to be seen whether she also broke the law.”
