    Hillary Clinton: exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, State Department officials said, and may have violated federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record.

    Treason:

    1. the offense of acting to overthrow one's government or to harm or kill its sovereign.
    2. a violation of allegiance to one's sovereign or to one's state.
    3. the betrayal of a trust or confidence; breach of faith; treachery.

    Treason? I think you're getting ahead of yourself there. Unethical? A very poor decision? An HR nightmare (hello, the State Department has to have people whose job it is to set that up!)? Yes to all of the above. Notice the definition you cite is the third on the list, meaning that it's the third most important, after the first two you list. Hillary is not guilty of the first two.

    I even take this back.

    Colin Powel, the Secretary of State under GHWB, used personal email for his correspondence as well. Furthermore, Hillary was no longer Secretary of State when the law requiring that officials' correspondence be retained went into effect:

    The federal regulations went into effect in late November, 2014 when President Obama signed H.R. 1233, modernizing the Federal Records Act of 1950 to include electronic communications. It was signed two years after Clinton stepped down.

    People are trying to make a far bigger deal of this than it actually is. Why don't we focus on more important things?

    Since they can find nothing else to criticize our next POTUS for; the Rabid Right Wing GOP/TEAbaggers here are trying to stir up nothing into something.

    Hang her! Rape her corpse! It's treason, I say, treason! There is no panting, hyperbolic, vitriolic outrage I can vomit onto this computer that could possibly convey the fury WE MUST MELT HER CORPSE WITH!

    Oh dear, I think I'm having an embolism.

    If I am not mistaken: the law that MX5 is making such a big broo-whoooo over didn't exist yet during Ms. Clinton's time in office?

    This government email law didn't become effective until November 2014, long after Ms Clinton's tenure ended.



    MX5: "LOOO-CEEEEE, use gotz sum 'splainin' ta deaux!"

    i wouldn't be so sure of that if I we're you. It is not definite that the hapless Hillary ho is going to be the next US president. Furthermore, she is totally unsuitable for the nation's highest office. Anyone who wants to support Hillary in 2016 needs to be locked up in a psychiatric ward for all of 2016 and not released until after an evaluation on January 31st 2017. This way we can save America from you fools making the disastrous mistake of electing this self serving, corrupt whore.

    You're both right. There is no problem. This latest revelation is completely consistent with everything* this dishonest, power-hungry harpy has done throughout her life. Not to worry; there'll be more to come.

    Hillary setup the email address the day she took office as Secretary Of State instead of a secure State Dept. email address.

    The email address was on an unsecured public network.

    The Chinese and Russians likely have more of Hillary's email than US government archives.

    The Clintons violated their ethics agreement with the Obama administration, foundation officials disclosed Wednesday.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/foreign-governments-gave-millions-to-foundation-while-clinton-was-at-state-dept/2015/02/25/31937c1e-bc3f-11e4-8668-4e7ba8439ca6_story.html

    Money was accepted from foreign governments by her families' foundation during her time as Secretary of State.

    The Clintons have accepted money from many anti-gay governments including Brunei, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and Oman.

    Liberal Greenies: the Clintons are obviously tied to big oil so the only thing green about the Clintons is the oil money the accept.

    The Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation does not report exactly how the money was spent.

    We can add The United Arab Emirates and Algeria to the list of anti-gay governments the Clinton's accept money from.

    Just curious, was it also "TREASON" when Colin Powell did the exact same thing? Oh wait, I guess it wasn't, since he's a Republican?

    icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    So now Hilary is guilty of disobeying laws that didn't exist yet?

    icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    Another made-up "scandal" that Fox News will trumpet nonstop for months and no thinking person will care about.

    Don't forget, the Clintons killed their travel agent and buried his body in the rose garden. Obama is a Muslim terrorist. He and Michelle have a secret terrorist handshake.
    I know it's all true because I saw it on Fox News. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Bombshell New York Times Report On Hillary Clinton Email Account Disputed

    "A report by Michael Tomasky in The Daily Beast, however, cast a heavy dose of skepticism over the Times' reporting on the regulation that required officials to preserve email communications. A State Department official told Tomasky that employees were told in October 2014 that personal email should generally not be used for government business, but if it is, communications must be forwarded to a government account in order to be appropriately preserved. Clinton left the Department prior to that, in February of 2013, however."

    yet these brainless, leftist fools on here want to support this crooked, power hungry, fowl mouthed whore for president of the U.S. How hopelessly stupid can both liberals and democrats really beicon_question.gif
