In today's politics, many ideas are split between and even within all the political parties. Often we find ourselves agreeing on one platform but some topics break our mold.

    State Dept. inspector general report sharply criticizes Clinton’s email practices

    No, it's not equivocation. Her server was not in govt....it was outside govt. Yes, there should not have been classified email, or anything else, on her personal server. Reportedly, that's why the FBI is investigating her.

    State Dept. inspector general report sharply criticizes Clinton’s email practices

    Using a private server is the very definition of "outside the govt".

    State Dept. inspector general report sharply criticizes Clinton’s email practices

    I read the report, and it says she was told not to do it, she was not given authorization to do it, she was offered govt means to conduct her business, and yet she insisted on using her own. Why do you think that was?

    State Dept. inspector general report sharply criticizes Clinton’s email practices

    That's the date of the current, active, regulation. The same regulation was in place during Clintons term. That's explicitly stated in the IG report. She was supposed to use govt systems when available. They were available to her, she chose not to use it. Also specified in the IG report. Look...

    State Dept. inspector general report sharply criticizes Clinton’s email practices

    The IG report also said the only other secretary of state to use personal email “exclusively” for government business was Colin Powell, contrary to Clinton’s claim that her “predecessors” — plural — “did the same thing.” The IG also said that, like Clinton, Powell did not comply with policies on...

    State Dept. inspector general report sharply criticizes Clinton’s email practices

    If she didn't want to circumvent, why set up a personal server, at personal expense, when a taxpayer funded (and approved) govt server was available?

    State Dept. inspector general report sharply criticizes Clinton’s email practices

    Clinton set up her own server in a Nixonian attempt to circumvent FOIA. She did not turn over all her emails from that server, she lied about being authorized to use that server, and alledgedly passed classified information through that server. None of those things can be attributed to Powell...

    Cherry picking factcheck makes you disingenuous. Read the rest of what they have to say.

    State Dept. inspector general report sharply criticizes Clinton’s email practices

    Primarily the changes in regulation between the two. Further, Powell didn't setup and use his own server, he wasn't told not to do what he was doing, and he didn't lie to the American people about doing it....among other things.

    State Dept. inspector general report sharply criticizes Clinton’s email practices

    I'm sorry, you're just going to have to read what it says and compare it to what it says about Powell. Specifically that change in regulations between the two. If you like, you read the analysis of this document (if you can't comprehend it) published by politico, factcheck, ny times and many others.

    No, the evidence is in the report, with supporting analysis from everyone from factcheck to the ny times. Ignore it all you want, the ignorance is yours.
