While she served as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton used her personal email address to conduct official State Department business. As a government official, Clinton should have used a government email address and thus would not have been susceptible to violating the Federal Records Act.

This quote from the article conveys that not all liberals believe Clinton should be excused from this unethical matter:
“That she decided to use her personal address anyway showed a stunning disregard for governmental transparency requirements,” wrote Vox.com’s Max Fisher. “Indeed, Clinton did not even bother with the empty gesture of using her official address for more formal business, as Bush officials did.”
