Kevin Drum writes here in Mother Jones about the celebrated Hillary Clinton emails.

Unlike most of us, he actually read the full report.

He identifies the most interesting of the emails. One of them is an email to Colin Powell on her second day in office as Secretary of State, where she asks him about using his personal email for State Department business. He responds and warns her to be careful and not to talk about it.

Page 11: On January 23, 2009, Clinton contacted former Secretary of State Colin Powell via e-mail to inquire about his use of a BlackBerry while he was Secretary of State (January 2001 to January 2005). In his e-mail reply, Powell warned Clinton that if it became “public” that Clinton had a BlackBerry, and she used it to “do business,” her e-mails could become “official record[s] and subject to the law.” Powell further advised Clinton, “Be very careful. I got around it all by not saying much and not using systems that captured the data.”

[Drum writes:] This is important. First, it makes clear that Hillary conversed with Colin Powell two days after becoming Secretary of State, not “a year later,” as Powell has claimed. Second, Powell essentially told her that he had just gone ahead and broken the law by “not using systems that captured the data.” Hillary, by contrast, chose instead to retain everything as the law required.

Drum concludes there is nothing in the report to warrant the wild claims made by Trump and the rightwing talkshow hosts.
