Along with the news that I’m sure you’ve already heard saying that Hillary Clinton did not meet the requirements for email storage after she left office there is something that Rachel Maddow points out.
Here is how it works.
For every email that the Secretary of State since she was to print it and put it in a box. For every email that the Secretary of State received she was supposed to print it and put it in a box. As you can imagine this creates a lot of paper. In this photo Rachel shows the paper produced in 3 days of emails that were received and sent by her. And she is not the Secretary of State.
If you were asked to do this at your job you would say no. And you did not have to travel to 157 countries over the course of 4 years, unless John Kerry is reading this. The state department admits that it’s system is Antiquated and has actually produced 3000 boxes of unfiled emails to and from the various Secretary of States since 1997. Now I understand that these emails are not in any way sorted. There is no index and there’s no way to search through them. The state department says that by the end of this year they will have an off-the-shelf product that will back up the emails. But until that happens this weird system which only Rachel Maddow had the journalistic Integrity to report is what has caused all these issues for Hillary Clinton. They are fabricated issues and I hope more journalists take Rachel’s lead and tells the story The Way It Is.
A lot of people on television and in opinion pieces have said that Hillary Clinton has taken a blase attitude about this email situation. If I were in her shoes I would be so tired of this stupid rule of her having to print out every email she received and sent out I would to be rolling my eyes the way she does.
