Bingo. You're not talking about some GS-7 Secretary/Admin Assistant. You're taking the Sec of f'ing State receiving and sending info, at least some of it undoubtedly highly classified info, using a not very secure personal e-mail account, EXCLUSIVELY for 4 years as Sec State. Heck, Petraus just pled guilty to "unauthorized removal and retention of classified material." In addition The Federal Records Act requiremes that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record. Any other govt employee did this they would be hosed. But since it's Hillary she'll just plead ignorance, blame it on the vast right wing conspiracy, and get away with it..
So are you upset that Powell did the same thing?
And why are you so upset about her violating a law that was passed AFTER she left office?
Technically speaking, the Presidential Records Act was passed in 1978, and at that time, included language such as "documentary materials … created by the President or his immediate staff.” In turn, the term documentary materials includes all books, correspondence, memorandums, documents, papers, pamphlets, works of art, models, pictures, photographs, plats, maps, films, and motion pictures, including, but not
limited to, audio, audiovisual, or other electronic or mechanical recordations
The ammendments you are referring to, which ammended the PRA and were passed in 2014, did not substantially alter the general idea that electronic correspondence needed to be archived or archivable, just clarified where it was to be kept.
I really don't care greatly as I think this is a pretty trivial thing unless she was using something really weak in terms of security, but it would appear to be a violation of the PRA, technically speaking.
