Sec. of State John Kerry’s testimony in front of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Tuesday produced a number of revelations about the ongoing Hillary Clinton email probe, including that she was provided an email account during her time at the agency designed to handle classified information but never used it.
During one part of an at-times intense exchange, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson
read from a letter from Julia Frifield, who serves as State Department assistant secretary of state for legislative affairs.
“Secretary Clinton did not use a classified email account at the State Department. An account was set up on ClassNet on her calendar, but it was not used,” Frifield wrote in response to a Sept. 21, 2015 letter from the committee asking for information about Clinton’s use of an account equipped to handle classified information.
Revealed: State Dept. Created Classified Email Account For Hillary, But She Never Used It
Operating her own server would have afforded Clinton additional legal opportunities to block government or private subpoenas in criminal, administrative or civil cases because her lawyers could object in court before being forced to turn over any emails. And since the Secret Service was guarding Clinton’s home, an email server there would have been well protected from theft or a physical hacking.

National security is only an issue if one of us uses a keyword such as "bomb" in a joke or other nonthreatening use. Classified or sensitive documents sent to and fro by the big people is no issue...
One thing revealed under oath was the fact that Hillary Clinton (while Secretary of State) was provided an email address on a highly secured State Department system called ClassNet.
