President Clinton? New Report: Failed to Follow Rules; Violated Federal Records Act; Did Not Report Hacking Attempts; Did Not Cooperate with Investigation
May 25, 2016
WASHINGTON, DC – The Department of State inspector general has determined former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton mishandled emails and failed to properly respond to cyber-security risks during her tenure. Clinton exclusively used a private email account and server while performing her duties as secretary of state.
The inspector general’s 78-page document faults Clinton, the State Department and several of her predecessors for being “slow to recognize and to manage effectively the legal requirements and cyber-security risks associated with electronic data communications, particularly as those risks pertain to its most senior leadership.”
Despite the report noting that it found “longstanding, systemic weaknesses” in the department, Clinton’s indiscretions were singled out as “more serious,” according to the Associated Press.
