The Email Investigation And The Tools Of Ignorance

William Danvers discusses the aftermath and implications of the investigation into Secretary Hillary Clinton’s personal email server.

The investigation into Secretary Clinton’s use of a personal email server has come to a close. There are two general conclusions that frame the result of the investigation: Secretary Clinton is not being charged with a crime, and Secretary Clinton has acknowledged that having a private email server was a mistake.

That’s what happened. The rest of the public chatter is unsubstantiated speculation about whether the process was legitimate and what pundits and others think should have been done, as well as the details of what actually happened.
