Huma Abedin used Yahoo email when she couldn't access her State Dept. account. Hmmm…. pic.twitter.com/1XIWVLxHl9

Great, fine by me. Doesn't matter what letter is in front of their name.
Get rid of all of the lying crimals.

I've felt they have not pursued Hillary because to do so could expose much bigger scandals. I think it was decided that the fallout from whatever the scandal could be is not worth the societal unrest that might result.

Really? Why does the most powerful man on Earth need to EVER use an alias in an e-mail?
He's not immune to prosecution for illegal actions. Being a President, half of the House and Senate want your head on a platter.
What? Was he up to no good?
I'd imagine he wasn't using an alias for snips and giggles. The real question is what emails are the public and Congess not privileged to see that had his alias?

Can you clarify? Was Pres. Obama sending her personal emails? Or classified emails?
Is it your contention that ANY email communication between Pres. Obama and Hillary Clinton is classified? Or subject to FOIA? That would seem to assume all personal communication between people in government not archived in some manner is illegal?
The State Department has refused to make public that and other emails Clinton exchanged with Obama. Lawyers have cited the "presidential communications privilege," a variation of executive privilege, in order to withhold the messages under the Freedom of Information Act.
"Once informed that the sender's name is believed to be pseudonym used by the president, Abedin exclaimed: 'How is this not classified?'" the report says. "Abedin then expressed her amazement at the president's use of a pseudonym and asked if she could have a copy of the email."
"Given the Department's current [Freedom of Information Act] workload and the complexity of these documents, it can process about 500 pages a month, meaning it would take approximately 16-and-2/3 years to complete the review of the Mills documents, 33-and-1/3 years to finish the review of the Sullivan documents, and 25 years to wrap up the review of the Kennedy documents — or 75 years in total," the State Department said in the filing.
The report doesn't provide more details on the contents of that particular email exchange, but says it took place on June 28, 2012, and had the subject line: "Re: Congratulations." It may refer to the Supreme Court's ruling that day upholding a key portion of the Obamacare law.

These do not seem to be the actions of a party who wishes to be forthcoming.

It seems logical that the president would have an alias email address to use if he knew he'd be sending messages to an unsecure server. Why in the world would he use an official email address to a private server for State business?
