So, there you have it. Her own private server violates Federal Records Act. For whatever that's worth.
Here's the thing Huma Abedin. This is how your emails ended up on your computer. You instructed your computer to get them. In your email client program on your computer you opened an account for each server that Hillary used to communicate with you. Say, if she used Gmail, then you opened an account for Gmail within your computer's mail program, and so on for Hotmail, for Comcast, for Yahoo, and so forth, for her own private server, what have you. You did this for your own convenience at home. Your emails also appeared on your Android phone the same way. By you instructing your phone to get them in the same manner by the same means. You have to tell these machines and devices every little thing. They don't read your mind.
So then, when you separated from Anthony Weiner and stopped checking those emails on that computer then they accumulated in those accounts on the mail program. They don't stop just because you left Anthony and you stopped reading them on that computer. Although they may disappear within a predetermined period of time depending on settings in your computer's mail program. Mine do. Too bad for you that yours did not. Outlook mail client on my PC using Windows did not. They just kept adding up until I physically deleted them, even then they go into another file named "deleted mail." With Outlook if you want them really off the computer then you must delete them twice.
That is, when you separated from Anthony Weiner then it was your duty to cancel those accounts on whatever email client program you were using. The ones you set up yourself. It's easy enough to do. Just open the program, go to accounts and cancel each account on that computer.
But you know all this. Because you did it.
Married people share too much. They share everything. They share joys, dislikes, pet peeves, conversations, humor, feelings and thoughts.
For example, one time I dropped an ice cube on a spotless kitchen floor and in humor whispered to my older brother standing nearby, "Five second rule," patently ridiculous. A little joke just for him. Without hesitation, without even thinking, he automatically, autonomically actually, yelled to his wife in the distance, three full rooms away, large room, through the kitchen, through the informal dining room, through to the den where she was at the end by the fireplace, "HEY, BEVERLY, GUESS WHAT BO JUST SAID. HE DROPPED AN ICE CUBE ON THE FLOOR AND HE SAID FIVE SECOND RULE! HA HA HA HA"
It's not that funny. It's barely amusing. It certainly is not share-worthy. But there you go, married people do that. It's weird. They're like conjoined twins. It's sick.
It's like that. Huma, you did that by sharing your computer carelessly and containing sensitive State information and shared that with an unworthy agency. And you failed to cancel the accounts that you set up yourself for your convenience and when you separated physically from Anthony Weiner. the emails continued to arrive even though you are not there to read them, and reading them elsewhere. They're also accumulated on the servers. That's how the mail accumulated on your / then his computer. Your claim of not knowing how this happened is disingenuous. In short, Huma, you're a dope. And you expecting computer users and smart phone users across the land who all went through this same process to accept your claim of not knowing is insulting. Except to Democrats. They'll still believe you. They're only insulted by things Republicans do that they do themselves. Like talk dirty.
