So far nothing has conclusively shown that Hillary Clinton knowingly sent or received on her private server emails that were classified at the time of their transmission.

Any classified designation imposed after the fact and before the emails were made public belies the claim that she intentionally mishandled classified information.

Nor have there been any known disastrous foreign policy or security consequences of revelations of supposedly classified material from her server (unlike the repercussions of the “hero” Snowden’s publication of some classified information about foreign operations unrelated to the invasion of Americans’ privacy).

In fact, given that federal government servers have been hacked repeatedly and that the Defense Department has recently created a program “Hack the Pentagon” to find loopholes in its security, Clinton might even have been smart not to rely exclusively on government servers for all of her communications.
