Two more points.

First, she made the decision early in her SOS position. Maybe the other devices were not yet assigned. The main point would still remain that 4 devices are better than 5 later on etc (all things being equal).

Second, the device quantity has nothing to do with secrecy laws. You are wandering off topic. The FBI investigated mishandling of classified material, NOT device quantity.

"Untrue" is not the same as lying.

I make factual errors all the time, and most are NOT lies. Some are due to carelessness, such as not double-checking, some are due to receiving incorrect information from others, and some are due to misinterpreting text because English is inherently vague and/or one context can be mistaken for another.

Work-related emails are often terse and assume prior work knowledge, domain lingo, and/or context.

This is "Office Life 101", I shouldn't have to explain it. Normal people know all this.

To add to the horror of their Turkey leak: the information about female voters doesn't just include their names, addresses, phone numbers, and equivalents of social security numbers. It also includes whether they are members or not of Erdogan's AKP party. At a time when the country is in the middle of a bloody post-coup purge.

Reread your original post where you said "lying about". The Director said that NO clear evidence of intentional misconduct was found. Being sloppy is not "lying" to normal English users. I'm not condoning her sloppy behavior here, just pointing out that your claim as written has no evidence behind it. You are sloppy also, ironically.

You seem to miss that HRC is not the DNC. Why would the DNC having poor network security have anything to do with Clinton, or reflect on her at all?

One could argue that ultimately the prez is held responsible by the public for just about everything regardless of whether they had direct control over it or not because they always have at least indirect influence. It's the old famous "The Buck Stops Here" situation.

That's fine, as long as applied evenly, such that Trump gets blamed for plagiarizing by the RNC speakers, for example.
