Don't ever dismiss @HillaryClinton's use of a private email server as no big deal.
That's what the GOP wants you to say:

They want to use that to their advantage when the #SMARtech breach finally gets its rightful coverage.
My read has long been that the government didn't provide a pathway for top-level government officials to use the most basic modern technology.

TBH, that was the failure of both the Bush and Obama admins.
The Bush admin should have been responsible for developing that functionality as the need arose in, like, 2003, rather than requiring the use of phones like THIS.

In 2009.…
But there's a good reason that fight had not been fought yet - because the Bush admin didn't need to worry about it.

The Bush admin had access to all their emails from their own private server, so they didn't bother ensuring a modern tech stack was available for their successor.
And guess where the Bush admin's private server was?

#SMARtech. The same #SMARtech that was hacked by Russian agents in 2015.…
You know, host to all the RNC emails, state, local campaigns, national conservative orgs like American Crossroads, Americans for Prosperity, yada yada yada.

And data host for a crapload of congressional committees and govt agencies too.
So, anyway, back to the main story: what the GOP wants to do by dragging out the Clinton email investigation is to make everyone discount its relevance, to get them to finally shut up about it...
So that when the SMARTech narrative finally gets picked up, they can say

"What? Emails? Private server? You said it was NBD! Unfair!"
But there's a big difference. Privately hosting a couple of email accounts in what appears to be a well-secured operation (better than running emails through a RIM server, for sure) is different from…
consolidating an entire national political party's email ops, data infrastructure and voter file at a single host operated by 12 people.

Here. You can read more about that operation in relation to MS and GWB43's WH for free.…
And there's one more big difference.

When HRC was found out, she fessed up and took responsibility, even when the encryption wasn't implemented to spec...
The RNC and friends, however, are still in denial about the scope of the breach of their data ...

and actively allowing the data that was breached to be wielded against them, preventing them from taking action against Trump.
So. Don't give in.

Don't say 'it doesn't matter that she used a private server...'

Say "The Bush admin should have ensured a modern tech stack was ready for the new admin to use rather than using their own; she used a secure off-site host while waiting for that to catch up.
And don't give a pass on passing classified info....

Unless you want to have to do the same thing when it comes out that the GOP was doing the same, except theirs was actually breached by hostile foreign actors and used to blackmail the USG into submission.
So when they bring up HRC's classified emails...

ask them right back about the 2015 breach of their emails, if Karl Rove et al passed any restricted information, if any classified info linked to the contract for DIA Solicitation #0012005 could have been cached + exfiltrated.
Curious if @ColMorrisDavis might have anything to add... or tips on where to find the original solicitation ;)
