The concern that Hillary Clinton used a private email server, instead of the required government system when she served as secretary of state, is puzzling [“‘Homebrew’ email servers like Clinton’s no easy matter,” News, March 6]. Given the current condition of our diplomatic relationships, with friends and foes alike, it is improbable that her emails contained any substantive information that could further jeopardize our security, even if her email system were successfully hacked.

At this point, we don’t know if it was hacked or not. To reference her response to questions about Benghazi during her tenure: “At this point, what difference does it make?”
