Hillary Clinton got some devastating news this week when the State Department turned on her by admitting that she did not comply with the agency’s policies on records.
According to Politico, the State Department inspector general made the admission in a report released to lawmakers on Wednesday. In the report, it was also revealed that Clinton expressed reluctance about an official email account and hacking attempts on her private server.
Though the report states that the agency suffers from “longstanding, systemic weaknesses” with records that “go well beyond the tenure of any one Secretary of State,” it also slams Clinton for using a private email during her four years at the agency.
“Secretary Clinton should have preserved any Federal records she created and received on her personal account by printing and filing those records with the related files in the Office of the Secretary,” the report states. “At a minimum, Secretary Clinton should have surrendered all emails dealing with Department business before leaving government service and, because she did not do so, she did not comply with the Department’s policies that were implemented in accordance with the Federal Records Act.”
Clinton was counting on the State Department having her back, so this report comes as a devastating blow for her. With even the State Department turning their back on Clinton, it likely won’t be long before she finds herself behind bars.
