I know when I talk to my friends who are attorneys we are all struggling with what happened to the emails and aren’t satisfied with answers to date. While we all know of the occasional use of personal email addresses for business, none of my friends circle can understand how it was viewed as ok/secure/appropriate to use a private server for secure documents AND why further Hillary took it upon herself to review them and delete documents without providing anyone outside her circle a chance to weigh in. It smacks of acting above the law and it smacks of the type of thing I’ve either gotten discovery sanctions for, fired people for, etc.
Ms. Rottenberg, the general counsel, does not express concern that the law was broken, only that she’s concerned how the question will answered. Then, remarkably, she wonders why the people have no trust in government and why we are approaching Third World status when it comes to trust.
Trust of the American public in American institutions : A poll was just released showing that trust in Congress, the presidency, the Supreme Court, big business, Wall Street, etc. is at historic lows. That does not bode well for the country (and in fact the military seems to be the only institution that Ameicans trust, which is evocative of a third world nation and not of the world’s leading nation, for now).
#PodestaEmails15 can be found on the link below and we will report on what is in them throughout the day.
