If you were to apply that standard across the board to everybody in the federal government, the apparatus would grind to a screeching halt. Clearly, you have no idea how byzantine wide-spread and at times contradictory classifications get applied.

There is a reason prosecutors look for criminal intend. It was careless. Hillary admitted as much. End of story. When has your candidate last admitted a mistake?

Anyhow, it's clear you are deep in the rabbit hole and drank heartily from the conspiracy firehose.

The point was that oftentimes classified info is sent over unsecured channels. And it happens to the best of them, to quote from the article:

A spokesman at the C.I.A., Ryan Trapani, said in a statement that Mr. Brennan had believed that the information he sent in the email was unclassified.

"When operating in a position like he was at the White House, officials often have to make spot judgments about whether information is classified or not," he wrote.

"In most cases, the determinations are correct, but in some situations, another agency may consider certain information classified that the author does not."

Funny, how this totally legal and required RNC operated email system only became known when "the White House's deputy director of political affairs, was using a email address to discuss the firing of the U.S. attorney for Arkansas."

To quote the wikipedia article on the matter.

Totally not government business.

Obviously, I cannot attest to how I was handled as a baby (since I was a baby) but your cognitive functions are clearly impaired by neurodegenerative partisanitis.

Unsurprisingly, the Republican National Committee operated an email server for White House staff to use for partisan communications and purposes.

So we are supposed to believe that the VP office did not produce emails for days on end during some of the most critical time stretches of the Iraq war?

Who has been lead around on the nose exactly?

The number of classified emails that went through Hillary's server are BTW 22. Most of them were not classified at the time, the once that were didn't have the classification in the header, they were only marked in the body.

So remind me again what she did that differs from what Powell did when he ran his private email server? Or what the RNC did when they ran a large portion of the White House email traffic on their servers and conveniently forgot to make any backups?

22 million of emails from the Bush area are still missing.

What's the point of doing what Assange and Wikileaks have been doing without any moral position? He isn't helping his own case.

It's most flummoxing. Even before he holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy his behavior started to look somewhat erratic. Some prescient bloggers (such as Sean-Paul Kelly) warned Wikileaks about tying its reputation this closely to just one person. Alas, the warnings were ignored, and now the damage is done.
