Hillary and Convenience

I opted for convenience to use my personal email account, which was allowed by the State Department, because I thought it would be easier to carry just one device for
my work and for my personal emails instead of two,” a self-assured Clinton told more than 200 reporters crowded into a U.N. corridor.

Was she correct?  Was this really allowed by the State Department?

Here’s what the State Departments guidance for storing and safeguarding classified material says.

“Do not store classified material at a facility outside the chancery, consulate, etc., merely for convenience. To store classified material, a post must demonstrate to
the regional security officer (RSO) a legitimate need to have material at a given location and provide a justification for the level of classified material to be stored.”

(CT:DS-241; 10-16-2015) (Office of Origin: DS/SI/IS)

Granted, this guidance is referring to State Department consulates and posts, but would logically also apply to the Secretary of State storing classified material at a facility outside  the State Department’s security controls.
