Why it matters; Records not under government controlRecords not involving government email addresses were not under government control, raising issues concerning security and the State Department’s ability to follow open records laws
What happened; Chose not to keep “personal” emailsClinton has given 30,000 work-related emails to both the State Department and the FBI. She said she chose not to keep 31,000 others she deemed personal. [Clinton won’t say if her server was wiped]
Why it matters; Emails are possibly irrecoverableBecause Clinton gave the FBI her private server, technology experts may be able to retrieve portions of the emails she did not keep. If they cannot, there may be no way to know what emails Clinton did not turn over.
What happened; Sent information now classifiedThe emails were not marked as “classified” at the time but do contain information now considered classified, according to the intelligence community’s inspector general.

Why it matters; Material not allowed on non-approved systemsFederal rules prohibit sharing classified material on non-approved or personal systems. Regulations dictate the burden is on the sender of an email to classify its security clearance level.
