I'm not sure how many ways I can answer this or how many citations I can provide. You want to go over the IG's report and create a counter argument, be my guest. I've provided an answer and citation for each and every question you've asked and you still seem to be lost in disbelief that Secretary Clinton actually did something wrong.
From two replies, and many more, ago:
In 2009, IRM introduced SMART throughout the Department, enabling employees to preserve a record copy of emails through their Department email accounts without having to print and file them. However, the Office of the Secretary elected not to use SMART to preserve emails, in part because of concerns that the system would allow overly broad access to sensitive materials. As a result, printing and filing remained the only option by which emails could properly be preserved within the Office of the Secretary in full compliance with existing FAM guidance.
The above came from the IG's report, which you either are ignoring or can't comprehend. In case of the latter, here's the explanation:
- The Department of State instituted a system called SMART that allows a copy of emails to be stored in compliance with National Archive's rules
- The Secretary's office chose "not to use SMART," "because of concerns that the system would allow overly broad access to sensitive materials."
In conclusion, the rest of the Department of State uses a system called SMART to be in compliance. The Secretary's office didn't want to use SMART. Therefore, since there was no other compliant system in place at State, the Secretary's Office had to print and file their emails to remain in compliance.
I've provided that answer multiple times and provided multiple links to the explanation. Have you bothered to read them?
I've also answered, multiple times, where to find the regulations. In fact, I provided what I thought was a helpful pointer to the IG's document that gives the statutes and regulations, along with a detailed history of their origin and interpretation by courts, the Federal Government and the Inspector General's office. Apparently, that still wasn't enough to satisfy your curiosity.
Do your own Google search and when you're ready to counter the IG's report with factual arguments rather than repeating the same questions over and over then you can get back to me.
