Hillary Clinton knew her Blackberry was not secure but used it to conduct State Department business anyway
According to this story when Hillary Clinton was sworn in as Secretary of State she requested a secure Blackberry which she could conduct State Department business on but her request was denied. Here is more:
Newly released emails reveal Hillary Clinton was made aware of security concerns over her Blackberry when she became secretary of state.
She requested a secure Blackberry from the National Security Agency in 2009, but the NSA denied her request.
Officials argued there were security vulnerabilities with using Blackberry devices for secure communications or in secure areas.
However Hillary Clinton still decided to use her Blackberry to send and receive emails through her personal email server:
One month after Clinton’s request was denied, she began using a private email account on her Blackberry phone to exchange messages containing sensitive information.
Security experts have raised concerns that her arrangement could have left the messages vulnerable to attack by hackers, including those working for foreign intelligence agencies.
So Hillary Clinton knew her Blackberry was not secure and she knew the NSA told her not to use it but she, apparently feeling as if she was above the law, decided to use it anyway. This shows me a willing disregard for the law and national security and as the President of Judicial Watch said, “the FBI and prosecutors ought to be very interested in these new materials.”
