Thoughts on Hillary Clinton Private Server

As some of you may know I am not exactly a Hillary fan. It's not because of political bias or because I vote for a single party (I Vote bipartisan). It's a matter of people that seem to be to big for Jail.

But I wanted to stop and make a really important argument today that Hillary isn't the only one that used a personal email address. The committee hearing can be seen below: (Warning it is 4 hours long)

I will remind people the Chairman that was grilling Comey today uses a gmail address for official business.

At one point during the hearing other members of congress challenged each other to not use personal email addresses to conduct business. At that point when the comment was made I turned off my laptop thinking we are really screwed when it comes to some people that are supposed to be protecting the countries information assets.

Classified vs. Non-Classified
Classified emails are simply marked with a header labeled (C). What escapes me is there seems to be no data leak protection on email sent to external email addresses that are marked as classified.

"In total, the investigation found 110 emails in 52 email chains containing information that was classified at the time it was sent or received. Eight chains contained top secret information, the highest level of classification, 36 chains contained secret information, and the remaining eight contained confidential information. Most of these emails, however, did not contain markings clearly delineating their status."

We all should wonder how many classified emails are leaving the security of their systems unchecked?
