What Difference Does It Make? Hillary Clinton Violated State Department Rules

May 25, 2016


A report was released today by the State Department inspector general investigating whether or not Secretary of State Hillary Clinton violated the Federal Records act and other guidelines for cybersecurity and records control.  The report, Office of the Secretary: Evaluation of Email Records Management and Cybersecurity Requirements, documents that Secretary Clinton knowingly failed to comply with policies and procedures. In other words, she broke the law (specifically, the Federal Records Act) and then lied about it to the public.  Here is an excerpt:

As previously discussed, however, sending emails from a personal account to other employees at their Department accounts is not an appropriate method of preserving any such emails that would constitute a Federal record. Therefore, Secretary Clinton should have preserved any Federal records she created and received on her personal account by printing and filing those records with the related files in the Office of the Secretary. 98 At a minimum, Secretary Clinton should have surrendered all emails dealing with Department business before leaving government service and, because she did not do so, she did not comply with the Department’s policies that were implemented in accordance with the Federal Records Act.

The FBI continues to investigate whether Secretary Clinton’s unlawful use of private e-mail violated national security law and the Freedom of Information Act.
