Hillary Rodham Clinton, the former first lady, U.S. senator from New York, and secretary of state, used a private email server for all of her emails when she was President Obama's secretary of state from 2009 to 2013. By using her personal email address, she kept her work documents from the government—a felony, punishable by up to three years in prison and permanent disqualification from holding public office.
The legal issues in Clinton's case are all the more curious when one hears Obama's tepid reaction to this latest scandal. Andrew Napolitano asks: Mr. President, are you not troubled that your secretary of state had a non-secure email account and used it for all of her work? Are you not troubled that she might have kept classified secrets on a server in her barn? Does it not trouble you, Mr. President, that foreign intelligence services likely would have had a far easier time hacking into the emails of your secretary of state because of all this?
