    Lindsay Graham, Republican from South Carolina sits on the Senate Internet Policy Subcommittee and yet has never sent an email. Does this make sense? It is like putting an Old Order Mennonite, who are wonderful people, but only use horses and buggies, on the Transportation Committee.

    When Hillary Clinton delivered "55,000 pages of emails" to the State Department, this champion of the environment sent 55,000 printed pages--ink on paper--rather than put them on a USB thumb drive.

    At least she, a woman and a Democrat knows what e-mail is. Obviously she is more technologically knowledgeable than Graham, a Republican. A so called leader on a committee making policy he knows nothing about.

    His staff knows how to e-mail. And Graham's office does respond to e-mails and texts. His response to this is a good one. You can look it up if you want to.

    By the same token, none of out politicians should legislate on poverty since none of them have ever been poor.

    No wonder Graham is not a Democrat if he doesn't know how to e-mail. He probably would send all of his e-mails in big print for the visually impaired.

    That is utterly stupid. She apparently did not have enough sense to know that her server in her home on which she kept classified information could be hacked. General Petraeus has had his career as a patriot blemished for something much less destructive and is being punished as a result. Yet people like you will swill some of the democrat slop and try to elect her president!

    democrats politicians in general don't like the military, especially the last two democrat residents of the White House and Hillary Dillary is perhaps the worst of the lot!

    Well Al Gore invented the internet before he knew what it was. Have you pointed that out Crabby! And Gore's boss Commander-in-Chief-Clinton was a draft dodger!

    You know those commercials about "that's not how it works"? Ms. Clinton should pay attention.

    She used an internet service for her personal email. She backed it up to a personal server in her house. She makes the claim that because there were Secret Service protecting the property, the personal server was secure.

    That's not how this works.

    The internet service is the primary cause for concern. We have no idea how secure their servers were; and it is *their* servers that the emails first resided.

    Backed up to her personal server - physical security (Secret Service) is only one *small* aspect of security for that. As has been evidenced in the recent past, people sitting in China can hack government systems. What makes her think some kid in Toledo--or worse, some radical islamic terrorist--hasn't been running amuck on her personal server?

    Unfortunately, she's treating this just like she did Benghazi: "What difference, at this point, does it make?"
