And yet...during the entire time she was SoS, Obama failed to appoint the requisite IG, the person who would have had oversight...the person who would have noticed a problem before six billion dollars went missing!
IMO, Barack Obama is as much at fault. The Big Question is, why?
Was he setting her up for something, or was he complicit in something? It is hard to imagine he was just negligent...not his style.
The Truth needs to be revealed, but I have a feeling that the circle of wagons is going to be very hard to get through.

Latest news report is that the FBI is optimistic they can recover data from the "closet server".
Hard to say at this point, though from Hillary's latest hub bub with a few
reporters, she is wearing Orange...what is up with that? Is she trying to
send a visual...like telling all of those people who donated Millions to the
Crime Foundation they will never see her in office, and forget those
"Wiped"? ...."Like what with a cloth or something"?
Did someone tell her that pictures are very deeply embedded, and
the hardest to erase?
In any case, she comes across very defensive now, and nervous.

"Wiped" ... as in not just deleting the directory entry-- and leaving the
data surface unchanged, to be written over randomly later. NOooe...
[One] message [that should have been classified], dated April 10, 2011, was forwarded to “H,” for Hillary Clinton, then the secretary of state. It came from one of her closest aides, Huma Abedin, who is now vice chairwoman of her presidential campaign ... The matter could form the basis for a criminal probe of whether laws for handling classified material were broken.
The secretary would have known better, the department officials say, because she was trained to understand the difference when she was “read in” on procedures to ID and handle classified information by diplomatic-security officials in 2009.
Clinton also went through a so-called “read-off” when she left office in 2013. In that debriefing, security officials reminded her of her duty to return all classified documents, including ones in which the classification status is “uncertain,” which would have included the e-mails stored on her private server — which she only this month turned over to authorities. The read-off would have included her signing a nondisclosure agreement.
“Once she resigned as secretary, she needed to return classified documents and other government-owned documents, which in this case would have included the server,” veteran Diplomatic Security Service Special Agent Raymond Fournier said.
Hillary Clinton has said that certain emails she received were marked “classified” by the intelligence community AFTER she received them.
That claim has been blown out of the water (again) for multiple reasons:
The DIA, the NSA, and the NGA, which oversees U.S. government spy satellites, confirmed to Herridge that the information was classified at the time and remains classified now.
The State Department, along with the Clinton team, have maintained that the information was not classified at the time, with Clinton characterizing the situation as a “disagreement” among agencies about what should be classified.
“That has nothing to do with me,” Clinton said last week in Las Vegas.
Herridge noted that under an Obama executive order from 2009, the State Department cannot decide whether information from other agencies should be classified.
She said only the agency that obtains the information can decide whether to mark it as classified.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton could find herself suddenly disqualified from holding the office of President of the United States if her worst-case legal scenario should come to pass, a former United States attorney general said Monday morning.
Michael Mukasey, who was America’s top law enforcer under President George W. Bush, told an MSNBC audience that Title 18, Section 2071 of federal law bars an official from holding future office if he or she ‘conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys’ them.
ABC News has obtained State Department e-mails that shed light on Bill Clinton’s lucrative speaking engagements and show he and the Clinton Foundation tried to get approval for invitations related to two of the most repressive countries in the world -- North Korea and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
