Not “malicious” sayeth the administration to the biased press, who repeats.
I said before, inasmuch as you have some (willfully) obtuse pundits who ‘don’t understand what the email controversy is about…” Looking at you Kevin Drum…. It’s that the Clinton’s keep a shadow staff of loyalists on payroll at the Clinton Foundation. IE, Sidney Blumenthal, who is loathed such that the Pres. wouldn’t allow Hillary to hire Sidney straight up. Anyway, Hillary seeks the advice of this shadow staff, Blumenthal and others, farms out some research work to them. So the mishandling of state secrets was done in accommodation to that function, so Hillary could use her shadow staff at the Clinton Foundation.
Yeah, not “malicious”. But certainly criminally malfeasant. Patraeus is a very decent analogy. He wasn’t “malicious” with his email, but he got charged.
