It was revealed today by a report in the New York Times that the presumptive 2016 Democratic nominee for President – Hillary Clinton – used a personal e-mail account throughout her entire tenure at the State Department as Secretary of State. This raises many questions. 1. Why? It’s sort of against the law. 2. Was the e-mail account secure? I am not even allowed to send work e-mail outside our encrypted e-mail system. And I don’t deal with state secrets. 3. Why has this not been raised before? By her aides, her advisors, by people receiving her e-mail. 4. Will this turn into a scandal that undermine her (as-yet-unannounced) bid for the White House in 2016 ? 5. What I want to know most of all : what was the account’s name? Presumably more formal than email@example.com, right?
