2 scenarios: Clinton emailed top secret info from her insecure personal account or used gov resources to secure her email & illegally circumvent FOIA.

Hillary Rodham Clinton did not have a government email address while secretary of state and may have violated federal rules that officials’ correspondence be retained.

Sadly, #NetNeutrality won't stop some of the worst abuses: http://thinkprogress.org/economy/2015/03/04/3629569/net-neutrality-wont-stop-worst-things-internet It's necessary but insufficient: time 4 #NewNetNeutrality
