Not often do we break news on Dvorak News but today we do. Hillary Clinton used a spam filtering service MxLogic to filter her spam and viruses. What this means is – employees at MxLogic, now owned by McAfee – had full access to all her classified state department email in unencrypted form.
I’m in the email business and I’m just not buying her story. Her excuses include:
I didn’t want to carry 2 devices – really? And you didn’t know that one device can access more than one email account? I personally have 4 email accounts set up one my phone and 5 on home computer. So the 2 device excuse is not only a lie – but it’s a bad lie. I’m used to being lied to by politicians, but I want the lie to be plausible so I can pretend to believe it without looking like an idiot.
All the people she emailed went into the government archive – so everyone else followed the rules but you?
She deleted 32,000 email – I can’t imagine why she would delete all her personal emails. That is a huge amount of work to get rid of something that most people would want to save. My email archive is an extension of my memory. I think she is as believable as Oliver North was in Iran-Contra.
So – as someone who was going to vote for her I have a huge problem with this.
