Hillary Clinton’s E-mail Mistake
Former First Lady, Secretary of State, senator and possible future Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton broke the cardinal rule about keeping your business e-mail separate from your private account.
It turns out that during her time as Secretary of State, she exclusively used a personal e-mail account to conduct official business instead of using the official government e-mail account. The move is against the rules and may be a violation of federal laws.
Her staff said that her e-mails were properly preserved, but the requirement that e-mails be maintained on government server are meant to provide security for the records and access to the information should the government need it.
Most businesses and agencies require employees to conduct official business on official accounts.
