I am still waiting for someone to blame this on Bush.

Right now, they're still blaming inanimate objects such as the server, itself. Next up, they'll try to blame Hillary's closest aides.
"But she swore she would never turn the server over again and I guess she didn't," said Gowdy. "It was taken — it wasn't turned over, it was taken
“But, in the most intriguing new development, Platte River Networks, the Colorado company that set up Clinton’s server, told ABC News it is highly likely that a full backup of the server was made, meaning those thousands of emails she deleted, may still exist. The company says it’s cooperating with the FBI.”
WHY did Hillary choose to turn over 55,000PRINTED PAGES of Emails...instead of the digital version of the Emails themselves?
Despite Hillary Clinton’s constant denials of sending government secrets through her personal email account, the State Department has already identified 60 emails containing classified data, according to a new report.
State Department investigators found one email containing classified information of an intermediate level, while the rest were at the lowest level of government confidentiality, an unnamed official told The Washington Times in a report published Sunday.
The official added that it will take months for State Department investigators to sift through the 30,000 work emails sent from the former Secretary of State’s home server.
During the fried food and presidential candidates hoopla at the Iowa State Fair on Saturday, Clinton insisted she did not knowingly transmit classified material and chalked up the investigations to right-wing attacks.
“I never sent classified material on my email and I never received any that was marked classified,” the presidential hopeful told a press gaggle at the fairgrounds.
“The State Department has confirmed that I did not send nor receive material marked classified or send material marked classified,” she added.
On Sunday, the chairman of the House Benghazi Committee said Hillary Clinton’s blank server smells of cover-up.
Safe given to lawyer among irregularities seen in review of Hillary Clinton emails
When State Department officials first discovered that Hillary Rodham Clinton’s personal email account contained classified information, they did not seize the thumb drive containing her digitally archived inbox but rather provided her attorney a special safe to secure the device, according to interviews and documents.
The move allowed Mrs. Clinton’s attorney to keep the device for several additional weeks while State officials reviewed paper copies of the emails for possible classified data. Officials were unconcerned that the thumb drive remained out of their possession because preservation orders from courts and Congress would ensure that her attorney would not destroy the evidence. The digital archive was turned over to the FBI for examination this month.
Amid the tensions, some career State employees have now alerted the intelligence community to irregularities that they fear may hide from the public the true extent of classified information that passed through her personal account, people familiar with the matter told The Times.
Their concerns include that one or more State Department attorneys involved in the production of the former secretary of state’s emails to Congress and a federal court have ties to Mrs. Clinton’s private attorney’s firm, creating at least the perception internally of a conflict of interest, sources told The Times, speaking only on the condition of anonymity.
The complaints were received by Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough
received by Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III’s office in recent weeks and have been referred to the State Department’s chief watchdog, the sources said.
The development opens up a potential new investigative front in a controversy that has already tarnished Mrs. Clinton’s presidential bid.
“At present, [the career officials] have not formally sought whistleblower status, but their disclosures are likely legally protected from retaliation since they involve matters affecting Congress, the courts and national security,” one of the sources directly familiar with the matter told The Times.

Last I checked, it was Hillary's own political party in charge of the FBI and who appointed the two Inspectors General.
Do you deny this?
AND I am all for discovering whether politicians running for the highest office in the land have placed national security at risk and if it's found that they have...then putting them in prison.

WHY did Hillary choose to turn over 55,000 PRINTED PAGES of Emails...instead of the digital version of the Emails themselves?
Did anyone find this strange at the time? I did...and so did Government investigators.
Only one logical answer: PRINTED PAGES of Emails can be edited...Government 'Classified' labels can be edited out of a paper printouts before they can be turned over.
Furthermore...paper printouts do not have electronic metadata included in them which can provide forensic evidence to potential investigators.
In addition, Strassel stated that “The real bombshell news was the State Department’s admission that, in at least six instances, the Clinton team altered the emails before handing them over. Sentences or entire paragraphs—which, by the way, were work-related—were removed. State was able to confirm this because it could double-check against Mr. Blumenthal’s documents.” Strassel wonders, “But how many more of the 30,000 emails Mrs. Clinton provided have also been edited?”
Apparently Blumenthal, long time hatchet man for the Clintons, was not prepared to withhold documents from the Select Committee, and risk a contempt citation. Instead he chose, in effect, to throw Mrs. Clinton under the bus.
The Obama administration has now asserted executive privilege to withhold a “small number” of documents from the Select Committee, reports Byron York. The plot thickens.
“It has already been shown that in [Sidney] Blumenthal’s production of emails to the Benghazi Committee, they included at least 15 Clinton emails related to Benghazi that are nowhere to be found in Clinton’s production to the State Department,” write Hoekstra and Toensing. “Is this obstruction of justice?” www.aim.org...
New Clinton email count: 305 documents referred with potentially classified information
More than 300 of former Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton’s emails — or 5.1 percent of those processed so far — have been flagged for potential secret information, the State Department reported to a federal court Monday.
Officials insisted, however, that the screening process is running smoothly and they are back on track after falling behind a judge’s schedule for making all of the emails public.
