Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Never thought of this (hat tip: Powerline).
The real harm is not that Hilary had classified information on her server for our enemies to hack. That was bad.
It’s not even that she wiped the server before giving it to the FBI. That was bad, too.
It’s that by wiping the server, she let our enemies keep the information they stole . . . but we don’t know what it was.
Our enemies already knew what information they stole, so wiping the server didn’t harm the enemies. But by wiping the server, Hilary made it impossible for us to know what information they stole.
Snowden told us what he stole so we know what holes to plug, what agents to pull out, what sources were compromised. But Hilary . . .
it’s hard to believe Snowden’s motivations were as cynical, or just plain slothful, as Hillary’s.
