This one is major. Ultra. ULTRA major.
One email thread from June 2011 appears to include Clinton telling her top adviser Jake Sullivan to send secure information through insecure means.
In response to Clinton's request for a set of since-redacted talking points, Sullivan writes, "They say they've had issues sending secure fax. They're working on it." Clinton responds "If they can't, turn into nonpaper [with] no identifying heading and send nonsecure."
There it is. Hillary Clinton explicitly ordered a felony violation of the National Security Act. There are people doing hard time in Leavenworth Penal Barracks for more honest mistakes than this.
Although I get it...
...to a smallish degree. Secure faxes are the bitch queen of Bitch Mountain. The hand shake almost never happens on the first try. Sometimes not on the twentieth. However, when I was in the Marine Corps if any Commanding General of mine had ordered me to do this, I would have been required by law to immediately report him to Counter Intelligence. He would have been Relieved For Cause by the close of business that day.
Except that none of them would have ever done that because Generals aren't spoiled political appointees who think that the law can't possibly apply to really important people like them.
And maybe she is right.
We'll have to see. Is Hillary Clinton is remotely answerable before the law for her actions?
And. If. She. Is. Not...
What do the rest of us owe federal law?
