Of course they are going to pull previous Secretaries of State into this Hillary investigation net. It’s the old, “Well, everybody did it too” bullshit. But while others may not have followed the rules to the “T” on rare occasions, it will never minimize or erase the facts that she had an insecure private server set-up that she did ALL her official business on, and when busted did several things to arrogantly avoid, interfere with, and lie in order to cover up her and the department’s wrong-doing under her tenure…
(FOX News) – The State Department watchdog accused Hillary Clinton of breaking federal records rules while secretary of state, in a forthcoming report that faults her and her predecessors for poorly managing email and other computer information.
Fox News has obtained a copy of the State Department inspector general audit. The 78-page report says the department and its secretaries were “slow to recognize and to manage effectively the legal requirements and cybersecurity risks associated with electronic data communications, particularly as those risks pertain to its most senior leadership.”
It cites “longstanding, systemic weaknesses” related to communications that started before Clinton’s appointment as secretary of state.
But the report singles out Clinton’s failures as more serious.
It specifically accuses her of violating department policy by not giving over emails when she left office.
The report says: “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, 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.”
The review came after revelations Clinton exclusively used a private email account and server while in office. Clinton is now the likely Democratic presidential nominee.
The audit comes as the FBI is thought to be nearing the final phases of its own investigation into Clinton’s email use as secretary of state.
There is so damn much “there” there with this woman, I cannot help but laugh my ass off anytime I hear somebody on TV insist there isn’t.

Meanwhile, the hacker “Guccifer” will be pleading guilty to a bunch of lesser charges, and some speculate he will be getting a deal that has him fully cooperating with the FBI and the US attorney in this continuing investigation.
