Clinton’s shadow IT would not have passed private sector muster
There are many questions regarding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of her private email to conduct official business. A leading one is whether the department’s IT managers did anything to question or stop it.
Clinton, who was secretary of state under President Obama from 2009 to 2013, used her personal email account with its own domain, clintonemail.com, to conduct official correspondence. The State Department contends there was no prohibition in using a non-State.gov account for official business as long as the emails were preserved. Clinton was following what had been the practice of previous secretaries, the agency said, noting that Secretary of State John Kerry is the first to rely primarily on a state.gov account.
