State Dept IG said Clinton violated its rules

See this article. No, this is not some Sanders or Trump conspiracy to taint Clinton. This is the State Dept’s Inspector General. Do we really want this level of above-the-law hubris in the White House? And to always get away with it? Can we really expect progressive reforms from this captive creature of the corrupt system?  Some excerpts:

“Clinton’s use of a private email server broke rules that exist to comply with the Federal Records Act.”

“The IG report also notes that Clinton and her top aides did not cooperate with the investigation.”

“The report says that there’s no evidence Clinton ever requested or received approval to conduct official business via a personal email account on her private server. Had she requested permission, according to the IG report, she wouldn’t have received it.”


“’According to [one] staff member, the [boss] stated that the Secretary’s personal system had been reviewed and approved by Department legal staff and that the matter was not to be discussed any further,’ the report states, adding that there’s no evidence that the agency’s internal legal office reviewed or approved the arrangement. The report notes that the other employee who raised concerns was told to ‘never to speak of the Secretary’s personal email system again.’”
