1/This much welcomed @StateDept report on #HRC e-mail controversy is very administrative in nature and should not be (mis)interpreted in an exaggerated manner. It is crucial to really understand the #security implications based on actual experience with these types of issues.
@StateDept 2/I should first note I rep'd @GOP in providing advice on #HRC e-mail issues & @DailyCaller in #FOIA case re: security training for @StateDept senior officials in this controversy.

I also routinely handle defending against security infractions for fed employees.
@StateDept @GOP @DailyCaller 3/ROI concludes 38 individuals were culpable for 91 security violations. Unclear how many attributed to each person but that's 2-3 violations per person on average. Honestly, that's very common. I have had (successful) cases where indiv accused of abt 2 doz security violations.
@StateDept @GOP @DailyCaller 4/Although some may highlight that 600 violations were identified, which seems to be a lot, of those "497 violations were found, but no individuals were found culpable in those incidents."
@StateDept @GOP @DailyCaller 5/It is difficult to really assess culpability w/o knowing who indivs are and their level of security training, as well as State Dept policies. That would be a key factor in determining how pervasive or problematic these violations truly were.
@StateDept @GOP @DailyCaller 6/Key conclusion from @StateDeptDSS:

Investigators said there was “no persuasive evidence” of “systemic, deliberate mishandling of classified information.”
@StateDept @GOP @DailyCaller @StateDeptDSS 7/END - This conclusion cannot be overlooked: "The Use of Personal Email to conduct Official Business Represented an Increased Risk of Unauthorized Disclosure".

Despite Pres Trump & family condemnation of HRC conduct, this Administration has engaged in similar conduct.
