    Bad for Hillary to use a private email server, but just fine for Gowdy to do so.

    Typical lazy reporting and political yellow journalism.

    Separate the statements in the above sentence:

    1) "it's not unusual to maintain such a thing [private email servers]
    (fact: it' not illegal for politicians to do in their campaign work )
    (implied: almost politician uses private email server so we shouldn't be concerned about Hillary Clinton's use of one )

    2). "it's not clear that Gowdy utilizes this email solely for political campaign work"
    (implied: but we know he probably does so he's a hypocrite )

    The purpose of the statement is to plant doubt and obfuscate the issue.
    A investigative journalist job is to investigate and report about an issue.

    Give the author an "F" on his assignment - he is a gossip columnist, not a reporter.

    Insert the appropriate nouns and verbs in the brackets and you can say anything you want about anybody.

    One could have a lot of fun with this generic paragraph.

    "... while it’s not unusual to maintain such a thing particularly for de-scaling fish it’s not clear that Crabtownboy utilizes this hand tool solely for meal preparation and not torture. "

    I'm sure others can chime in with more examples!

    Having a private server is not a problem. It's what one PUTS on that private server that can constitute a mistake. And Hillary has admitted that using that private server for Secretary of State business WAS a "mistake".

    Gowdy's private server for his campaign is a horse of another color. That's a common thing for political campaigns.

    Don't you know it's nothing but a political smear campaign to accuse him?

    Limbaugh on one side, Leftists on the other. Like a set of headphones with no volume control blaring ear-worm music.

    Crabtownboy, have you no shame? Nobody has said it is bad for Hillary to use a private email server.

    What has been alleged is that she used a non-secure private email server to transmit classified information. That is not only "bad" it is illegal.

    This is typical of the wacko radical left wing fringe. Make a false statement then go from there to accusing the opposition of wrong doing based on their false initial statement.

    But this sort of thing does point out how utterly dishonest the radical left wing fringe is. :(

    Just FYI for nonsecure communications the DoD and State Department has NIPRNet. (Nonsecure Internet Protocol Router Network)

    For secure communications up through Secret DoD And State use SIPRNet. (Secret Internet Protocol Router Network)

    For secure communications up through Top Secret they have JWICS. (Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications System)

    when I was on active duty, esp in Germany; when we answered the telephone - we were required to say "...this line is not secure"
    I wonder if Hillary said that.......
