And you would rather she prosecuted for it, and Trump elected? Isn't that just the least bit shortsighted if not mindbogglingly stupid?
In answer to your questions, 1.) yes, and 2.) no. She committed a serious crime. It shouldn't matter what she's running for. And I'd say the same thing if the shoe were on the other foot, and it was Trump facing federal charges for passing classified information through an insecure and unauthorized email server in order to hide political favors for private donations. We deserve better than a political class that is above the laws they impose upon us.
"The Federal Communications Commission is making another $2.15 billion available for rural broadband projects..."
Shorter version: Whether the federal government is redistributing our tax dollars to the middle of nowhere (see also, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...) or to telecoms, its cronyism all the way down.
It's a poor workman who blames his tools.
