62. What is your agenda?

 

I was a school board member in 2009. We all used private e-mail and as an attorney I knew my school correspondence was subject to the Illinois FOIA. But it was easier to use my private e-mail than trying to figure out how to toggle back and forth between two e-mail accounts. And I still have my e-mails although at this point the statute of limitations has expired.

There was no rule against a private server at the time Hillary became secretary. From what I have read this is going to be an intent investigation. Did Hillary set up this e-mail account to keep her official e-mails from being discoverable under the FOIA? Also from what I read, her real concern was to keep her private e-mails from being subject to the FOIA if received on her state department account. Two very different things.

In Illinois, Rahm Emmanuel, Chicago mayor, has been sending city business e-mails on his private account and is arguing those are not subject to the FOIA because his server is private. I think he is wrong and a judge recently ruled that way. Hillary has never claimed her state e-mails are private and not subject to the FOIA.

Technology was very different eight years ago and Hillary was more concerned with her convenience ( and time management I'm guessing). That does not make her a criminal.

And Sanders clearly feels he does not need to follow the rule that presidential candidates do not release their tax returns. Like Trump. Why is that? Information that may disillusion his supporters? Like he was in the top 1%?
