Rules, smules...they don't seem to apply to Hillary Clinton. The Washington Post has an excellent piece about the Clinton email scandal.For \u201cpersonal comfort\u201d reasons, she wanted to use her personal unencrypted BlackBerry for all her email, despite warnings that it could be vulnerable. She even took it overseas, although she supposedly said she \u201cgets it\u201d being a security risk. Don\u2019t be silly and expect her to use a PC; oh no, she was seemingly a CrackBerry fanboy. She also didn\u2019t bother to tell officials that her BlackBerry was tied to her infamous private email server. That server was supposedly also for her comfort \u2013 for her \u201cconvenience.\u201d\u201cDozens\u201d of FBI agents are investigating if a crime \u2013 the mishandling of classified material \u2013 was committed. But even that is plagued with political intrigue as the investigation picked up steam \u201cto avoid the possibility of announcing any action too close to the election.\u201dAt first, she flat-out denied that her server ever held anything classified. \u201cThere is no classified material,\u201d she said on March 10, 2015. Then that morphed to there was nothing \u201cmarked classified.\u201d Sure, there\u2019s a serious overclassification problem, a tendency for way too many things to be considered classified when the reality is there doesn\u2019t seem to be anything classified about it.Yet The Post pointed out:Twenty-two emails discovered later were deemed so highly classified that they were withheld in their entirety from public release. \u201cThey are on their face sensitive and obviously classified,\u201d Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah), a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, told The Post. \u201cThis information should have been maintained in the most secure, classified, top-secret servers.\u201dDespite her own previous promises about government transparency \u2013 and President Obama\u2019s pledge for the same \u2013 The Post noted how Clinton was immediately taking steps to help circumvent that transparency and get around FOIA. Emails related to secretary of state work \u201care supposed to be preserved permanently.\u201dClassified, smashified\u2026that applies to other people. At one point, after being told a statement was classified, she told Deputy Chief of Staff Jacob Sullivan, \u201cIt\u2019s a public statement! Just email it.\u201d Another time, she suggested Sullivan should take a shortcut to get her the information which should only be sent over a secure line. But hey, that didn\u2019t stop Clinton from issuing a double-standard note to department employees to \u201cavoid conducting official Department business from your person email accounts.\u201dIn regards to Clinton, The Post mentioned two potential \u201cmisdemeanors\u2019 related to removing classified information; tell that to NSA whistleblower Thomas Drake who the government wanted to roast toasty for daring to have \u201cclassified\u201d info. One document was even marked \u201cunclassified\/for official use only\u201d but he was supposed to have ESP and just \u201cknow\u201d it should have been classified. In total, Drake had five documents; Clinton had 2,093 emails determined as involving classified info.Then the whole personal email server scandal. The rules \u2013 as well as smart security standards, seem to only apply to other people and not presidential hopeful Clinton.I don\u2019t even like politics, but I highly recommend reading The Washington Post write-up. Warning, there\u2019s nothing \u201cnew\u201d about the ongoing scandal, per say, but if you care about security then good luck not getting riled up as you read how Clinton seems to believe the \u201crules\u201d apply only to other peons like us.
