Mind and Destiny

“I make no pretension to patriotism. So long as my voice can be heard ... I will hold up America to the lightning scorn of moral indignation. In doing this, I shall feel myself discharging the duty of a true patriot; for he is a lover of his country who rebukes and does not excuse its sins. It is righteousness that exalteth a nation while sin is a reproach to any people.”- Frederick Douglass

Hillary’s Emails

 The Justice Department has given Clinton’s former State Department staffer Bryan Pagliano immunity for cooperating with their investigation of her emails.  He helped set up her server. 
Hillary announced: "I'm delighted that he has agreed to cooperate, as everyone else has.  And, I think that we'll be moving toward a resolution of this."
She has been attacked politically by claims, that her use of a private server made the information more vulnerable to hacks.  But, security logs turned over from the Clinton server show no obvious sign of hackings, although that alone is not definitive proof the machine wasn’t compromised. 
Nevertheless, two law enforcement officials reported, that security logs do not always tell the whole picture as an experienced hacker can remove traces after they've compromised a server.
Clinton explained: "I also know that there were reports about the hundreds of officials and the thousand emails that they were sending back and forth that have been looked at and classified retroactively.  This really raises serious questions about this whole process.
"I think Colin Powell summed it up well.  When he was told that some of his emails from more than 10 years ago were going to be retroactively classified, he called it an absurdity.  So I'm hoping that, you know, we'll get through this and then everybody can take a hard look at the inter-agency disputes and the arguments over retroactive classification."
Hillary pointed out: "Remember, I'm the one who asked that all my emails be made public.  I've been more transparent than anybody I can think of in public life.  But it's also true that when something is made public, everybody from across the government gets to weigh in, and that's what's happening here.  And we need to get it sorted out and then take action from there."
