The State Department’s Inspector General released a report Wednesday that revealed that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her team deliberately avoided and ignored departmental rules based on federal law in regard to her private email server setup.
The watchdog report, which Hillary and her team refused to cooperate with, detailed how Hillary’s setup placed national security secrets at risk, also noting that she did not ask permission to use a private server, nor would she have received permission had she actually asked first.
Billionaire businessman and presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump seized on the report immediately, calling it a “disaster” for Hillary while citing it as proof that she was unfit to be the next president.
“The Inspector General’s report on Crooked Hillary Clinton is a disaster. Such bad judgement and temperament cannot be allowed in the (White House),” Trump tweeted Thursday morning.

Regardless of what one might think of Trump himself, he raises a good point regarding Hillary’s judgment, as she seemed far more concerned with the security of her private emails and paid speech transcripts than that of national defense secrets or an American ambassador and his team in a dangerous war-torn nation.
He was also right to point out that the report was a disaster for Hillary, or at least should be a disaster for her, as it makes clear that she purposefully violated federal law, apparently committing an untold number of felonies, for which she should serve time in prison, were she named anything other than “Clinton.”
Hopefully Trump will continue to hammer away at Hillary over this IG report, making it crystal clear to the American people that Hillary has proven herself unfit for holding the presidency through her own corrupt actions.
