    Hillary's argument: It depends on the definition of Policies. For one, Policies are not Laws. By most definitions, it's criminal when you break laws. But it is not criminal when you break policies.

    It depends on what your definition of "policy" is

    Except when it's a policy that you follow the law, such as in the handling of classified material.

    I still don't fully understand how she pulled this off for as long as she did. Maybe hundreds of people had to know they were sending her classified emails to a personal email address.

    Plus, if the emails were classified, they must have been encrypted. How could she have opened them unless .gov or .mil or .whatever was allowing it? They monitor for such spillage.

    She had the "key" on a thumb drive I'd bet,yet there is a story going around that she can't type well so a staffer may have decrypted them.Which means they read the e-mails.'08.

    Good points, and I have wondered about this as well. I think what she and her defenders are going to try to argue is that the emails in question weren't classified at the time. It's a bogus argument, but they will make it nonetheless.

    It is a bogus argument, and it relies on the ignorance of the audience. (Which, sadly, should be easy to exploit.)

    For those that wonder, even if a piece of paper isn't stamped "Top Secret", the information on the paper may very well be "Top Secret". Watch for Hillary to do a misdirect, talking about the classification of the piece of paper. As a long time participant in .gov activity, she has to be well aware of the distinction, and of the EO controlling classification.

    Edit: whoever has written the bot that changes certain names to other things---I am not amused. My ideas are mine, not yours to tamper with.
