Great post, Ken, and certainly clarifying. I’d probably have done the same as Hillery, believing a private server would probably be safer than a government one. I particularly liked your breakdown of how many of her emails were classified (especially the ones that were classified after the fact). This is a bit of a “storm in a teacup,” although I realize sensitive information probably shouldn’t be moved around with personal ones (or maybe they should; maybe it’s the best cover). And you’re right, government emails get hacked all the time, particularly because it’s a central facility and a real snap to hack if you’re even reasonably good at hacking — if you’re really good, I doubt it matters what server you’re on. Thanks for the post.
