Hillary's email hole gets deeper

The State Department chose to release the latest 7,000 page tranche of emails at 9 PM on the last day of the month, grudgingly meeting the court order, but making review of the many pages in time for news media deadlines as difficult as possible. Well, actually they could have made it 11:59 PM, I suppose, but maybe that seemed a little too outrageous for now.  As of last night’s document dump, about one quarter of the emails escaping deletion on Hillary Clinton’s server have now been released, and total number of emails containing classified information is well north of 200.

Hillary claimed in March, for instance, that her use of a private email address as secretary of state could never deprive the public of access to her communications records since so many of her messages were sent to underlings with official 'state.gov' addresses that would have archived them.

But at least two of her senior aides, the email records show, had trouble receiving those missives.

'As usual, your emails aren't showing up in my State account. Still working on that problem,' then-deputy chief of staff Jake Sullivan once wrote her.

Sullivan colleague Huma Abedin weighed in on a separate occasion when aide Lauren Jiloty also couldn't receive email from Clinton – and ended up using her own private email account as a quick fix.

'Well its clearly a state vs outside email issue,' Clinton heard from Abedin, who also had an address on the secretary's private server

'State has been trying to figure it out. So lj is getting all your emazils [sic] cause she's on her personal account too.'

These troubles happened because State Department IT specialists were kept in the dark about her private email server.

Members of the State Department's information technology staff were among those who were unaware that Hillary Clinton was using a private email address during her time as secretary of state, the latest release of messages from Clinton's private server revealed late Monday.

In one email, dated February 27, 2010, an IT worker on the State Department's computer "help desk" sends a message to Clinton's email address inquiring about why one of Clinton's correspondents has been getting a "fatal error" when she tries to send messages to the secretary of state.

But the biggest and potentially most damaging email revelation yesterday came not from the State Department but from Breitbart. Patrick Howley writes:

Hillary Clinton’s private email server was housed at the same physical location and on the same network as an email server used and operated by the Clinton Foundation, Breitbart News has exclusively learned.

Records reveal that Hillary Clinton’s private clintonemail.com server shared an IP address with her husband Bill Clinton’s email server, presidentclinton.com, and both servers were housed in New York City, not in the basement of the Clintons’ Chappaqua, New York home.

Web archives show that the Presidentclinton.com Web address was being operated by the Clinton Foundation as of 2009, when Hillary Clinton registered her own clintonemail.com server.

Numerous Clinton Foundation employees used the presidentclinton.com server for their own email addresses, which means that they were using email accounts that, if hacked, would have given any hacker complete access to Hillary Clinton’s State Department emails, as well.

I am no lawyer, but this sounds like a massive violation of the Espionage Act reuqirements to take care to protect classified information.
