EmailGate is very, very bad.
The mere presence of SAP material on her “private” email server is a federal offense — and should be. Sometimes described as “above top secret” these programs are no-BS “need to know” and you must be read into each one individually, then you must access whatever material is involved in a secured facility from which that material may not leave. There is no such thing as “having access to them” on a general basis, no matter who you are.
These programs typically deal with human intelligence of some form — an agent on the ground in a foreign nation employed in a very sensitive role and operation. Divulging the material will cause great harm to national security, usually will get people killed outright and might start a war — literally. That’s not hyperbole — it’s real and is no joke.
