State Department Disabled Security Features Blocking Clinton's Private Email

State Department Disabled Security Features Blocking Clinton's Private EmailNewly released emails show State Department IT staffers temporarily disabled security features on the department’s email system in order to accommodate then–Secretary Hillary Clinton’s emails from her private server — which the government server was treating as spam. State Department spokesman John Kirby said that “technicians implemented a series of troubleshooting measures to the department’s system,” adding that the adjustments mentioned in the emails are not uncommon and that the department has multiple layers of email security protections. The previously unseen emails were released under court order to the conservative legal advocacy group, Judicial Watch, after it sued the State Department for access.
