Hillary Clinton’s Email Scandal Explained in 63 Words

The news media is under the impression Hillary Clinton’s email scandal is so complex that only the geniuses in the mainstream media have the necessary intelligence to understand it.

It’s actually really, really simple, so easy that anyone could understand it, with the possible exception of the mainstream media.

If you want details, see PolitiFact’s article, but here’s the scandal and why it matters in 63 words:

  • What Hillary did: She insisted on exclusively using her personal email, probably to evade federal “sunshine” laws that require transparency from public officials. All communication was transmitted via a bootleg, easily-hacked server that was built and maintained by her friend (who had neither IT experience nor security clearance).
  • Why it matters: Evidence suggests foreign nations hacked Clinton’s email repeatedly to obtain top-secret American intelligence.
