The Associated Press also reported on Feb. 25th that Clinton used her own email servers rather than a third-party provider like Gmail. This issue has been raised to questions about whether she was attempting to prevent her messages from being disclosed by open records requests or subpoenas.

Clinton said in the election that she followed both “letter and spirit of the rules,” but this email issue has played into Republican criticisms of her as “secretive and politically calculating.”

She posted on her Twitter account on March 4th: “I want the public to see my email. I asked State to release them. They said they will review them for release as soon as possible.”

Homebrew email servers are not as secure from hackers and are usually not well protected. Those professional facilities provide “monitoring for viruses or hacking attempts, regulated temperatures, off-site backups, generators in case of power outages, fire-suppression systems and redundant communications lines.”

“I don’t think there’s any ill intent in this,” Senator Dianne Feinstein, Democrat of California, said Tuesday. “I just don’t know how the State Department functions with regard to this.”

This issue seems to be unlikely cared by voters.

Because few Americans are paying attention to any aspect of the 2016 election at this point, public see the problem as a part of the plots by Republican to make a distinction from the other.

In 2007, Clinton said secret emails ‘shredded’ the Constitution.

There was no requirement that Clinton set up a government email.

“Former Gov. Jeb Bush (R), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky), former Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R), and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina all weighed in.”

There were other politicians who had tried to avoid email disclosure.
