Asked by NBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Friday whether anyone in her inner circle ever expressed concern about the setup, Clinton responded, “I was not thinking a lot when I got in.”
“There was so much work to be done,” Clinton continued. “We had so many problems around the world. I didn’t really stop and think — what — what kind of e-mail system will there be?”So, as to why she needed a server, she said the didn't want to have to carry around two devices. (because you have to use one device per e-mail account?) Now she says she was too busy to give her new e-mail server much thought. (because it would be too complicated to use the State Department system that was already in place and had had an experienced IT department on call and ready to help her?)
When she took the job she got an existing office, a desk, a chair, a computer, a door, a coffee maker, etc. etc., and an e-mail address. Changing to her own server made things more complicated, not less.
