Hillary's Email - and the New Excuse Is . . .

by Kim D.
John Podesta is on his 10-speed bicycle and spinning the wheels as hard as he can. At least he is in one of the latest memos to Hillary's big donors, offering, yet another, explanation for why Secretary Clinton used a private email server. Click here to read the entire memo, as published by Buzzfeed.

So what's the new spin?
Had Secretary Clinton known of any concerns about her email setup at the time, she would have taken steps to address them. She believed she was following the practices of other Secretaries and senior officials.
So why the memo and need gloss over the email issue?
The letter comes in the wake of a damning report from the State Department’s inspector general which found that Clinton violated agency policy as secretary of state by using an off-the-books email system, which consisted of a personal email account and home-brew server.Clinton did not inform State Department officials about the system, though the watchdog’s report said she had an “obligation” to do so. She also failed to follow State Department policy by failing to tell State Department information security officials about two attempted hacking attempts on the server, which was managed in secret by State Department information technology specialist Bryan Pagliano.
For anyone who thought EmailGate would die down and fall into the obscure pages of Clinton history . . . think again.
