​But I'm a libertarian so I think there damn sure SHOULDN'T be such a law.

​In the middle of the worst political scandal of the last century it wold
be expected that when the president meets with his chief political adviser
they would discus it, especially when we know for a fact they talked about
it just before and just after the 18 minute gap. But Mrs. Clinton was
involved in no scandal at the time and I can see nothing ridiculous about
somebody's personal E-mail server having E-mails about yoga or wedding
plans or love notes.

And if I did have access to a top secret E-mail server with the best
security the NSA can provide (and she did) then I'd use that to discuss all
my deep dark nefarious secrets not my personal E-mail server. All I can see
evidence of is she was sloppy with security, a sloppiness that never caused
the country any harm as far as anyone knows.

If of all people
Bernie Sanders
​, a person who would have ​every reason to blow it up out of all
proportion, thinks that calling the Clinton E-mail server business a
"scandal" is just silly then I see no reason to disagree with him.

​That was the same lame excuse that was used for decades to keep gay people
from getting government jobs. I guess Bill's crime wasn't ​getting a
blowjob but for failing to keep it secret.
