Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton\u2019s emails, those sent from her private home server\u2014using Clintonemail.com\u2014were being caught in the spam filter, so the State Department turned the filters off.Bob Gourley, former CTO for the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA),\u00a0told Fox News, \u201cYou're putting not just the Clinton server at risk but the entire Department of State emails at risk. When you turn off your defensive mechanisms and you're connected to the internet, you're almost laying out the welcome mat for anyone to intrude and attack and steal your secrets.\u201dJudicial Watch used a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to obtain Clinton\u2019s emails (pdf) that had been referenced and criticized in an Inspector General\u2019s 2016 report (pdf), but that had not been released to the public.In one of the email exchanges (pdf), Clinton\u2019s deputy chief of staff, Huma Abedin, wrote, \u201cWe should talk about putting you on State email or releasing your email address to the department so you are not going to spam.\u201dBut Clinton responded, \u201cLet's get [a] separate address or device but I don't want any risk of the personal [email] being accessible.\u201dAnother email exchange shows (pdf) that Trend Micro\u2019s ScanMail Exchange 8 (SMEX 8) flagged some of Clinton\u2019s emails as spam, quarantining but not delivering some, while bouncing others. The State Department\u2019s IT team turned off spam and antivirus filters on two email relay servers, but it didn\u2019t seem too happy about doing so, since the filters had \u201cblocked malicious content in the recent past.\u201dThe State\u2019s IT team had been in contact with Trend Micro about the Clinton-marked-as-spam problem, but it doubted the issue would be fixed, since SMEX 8 was two revisions behind the then-current SMEX 10. The team didn\u2019t exude too much confidence that migrating to SMEX 10 would stop Clinton\u2019s emails from being marked as spam and rejected.The issue could have easily been resolved had Clinton simply used a government-issued email account instead of using Clintonemail.com and her non-government issued BlackBerry \u201cfor personal comfort\u201d reasons. One exchange (pdf) showed that a government email account had been set up for Clinton, but it warned her to be aware that any email using that address could be subject to FOIA searches. Clinton never used the government-issued account.The emails were \u201cnot part of the approximately 55,000 pages\u201d previously provided by Clinton, State Department spokesman John Kirby told Associated Press, but Abedin did provide the emails. AP said the newly released emails make it \u201cunclear what other work-related emails may have been deleted by the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.\u201d Supposedly she and Abedin retained different copies of emails.As Judicial Watch pointed out:On January 9, 2011, the non-Departmental advisor to President Clinton who provided technical support to the Clinton email system notified (pdf) the Secretary\u2019s Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations that he had to shut down the server because he believed \u201csomeone was trying to hack us and while they did not get in i didnt [sic] want to let them have the chance to.\u201dLater that day, the advisor again wrote to the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations, \u201cWe were attacked again so I shut [the server] down for a few min.\u201d On January 10, the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations emailed the Chief of Staff and the Deputy Chief of Staff for Planning and instructed them not to email the Secretary \u201canything sensitive\u201d and stated that she could \u201cexplain more in person.\u201dThe FBI has been investigating if classified material sent or received via Clinton\u2019s private server \u201cimperiled government secrets.\u201d AP added, \u201cAs part of the probe, Clinton turned over the hard drive from her email server to the FBI. It had been wiped clean, and Clinton has said she did not keep copies of the emails she chose to withhold.\u201dNational Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower Bill Binney, who\u2014way back in 2012\u2014warned Americans that the NSA had dossiers on nearly every U.S. citizen, told Fox News, that Clinton had over 2,100 emails containing classified information on her personal insecure server. Her files were \u201cvulnerable [to] attack [from] all people in the world\u2014hackers, governments, everybody.\u201dThe State Department\u2019s unclassified email system has been \u201crepeatedly breached,\u201d and \u201cGuccifer\u201d allegedly pwned Clinton\u2019s server \u201cwith ease.\u201d WikiLeaks has a searchable Clinton email archive, and Julian Assange said WikiLeaks intends to release more emails to prove her system was compromised. Assange claimed the unreleased emails would provide enough evidence to bring an indictment against Clinton but that it\u2019s unlikely such an indictment will happen.
