(Ken Dilanian, NBC News) – A State Department audit pronounced that Hillary Clinton violated the Federal Records Act when she used personal email server while she was secretary of state.
The federal rules expressly prohibit classified documents to be removed from the government server in tight keeping of the preservation of the national security.
However, according to the audit headed by State Department Inspector General, Steve Linick, Hillary’s then use of a private email, breached said regulation. The audit discloses that no approval of Hillary’s email setup was obtained from the State Department’s information security section nor was there any showing of Hillary’s asking of permission from said section.
The audit recommends that Hillary should have surrendered possession of all emails relating to the government.
Hillary consistently argued she did not violate the rules as most of her emails were sent to the State Department system.
Hillary’s campaign group surely expects their opponent’s unfavorable use of the findings against Hillary.
