the Truth About Secrets
What no one want's to say about secrecy in the Internet age

No such thing as a "secure server"
One problem; anyone who knows anything about hacking, and the state of technology, knows there is no such thing as a “secure server” so in reality it would not matter where Hillary or anyone else placed an e-mail as ALL servers are open to hacking these days. A day does not go by that we read things like the ability of a hacker to take over your car while you are driving or clean out your bank account or lately the Russians allegedly hacking the Democratic Party or what WikiLeaks is up to in this "wild west" hacking world. So using common sense we should assume what should be obvious – namely that there is no such thing as a secure server.
Meanwhile, we should also assume it is not in the interest of the Pentagon, NSA, or any other clandestine agency to admit that they can be hacked (or indeed have been regularly) and those entities also don’t want to admit they are regularly hacking the Chinese or Russians and indeed everyone else including allies. We also know that the Israelis have hacked just about all our relevant government “secure servers”. All sides have an interest in keeping quiet on this little secret.
The truth is if you want to keep a secret, stay away from the internet, a phone line, any sort of microphone and overall... put nothing in writing.
More on Guccifer
Marcel Lazăr Lehel (born in 1971/1972), known as Guccifer, is a Romanian hacker responsible for a number of high-level computer security breaches in the U.S. and Romania. Lehel targeted celebrities, Romanian and U.S. government officials, and other prominent persons.
Lehel first appeared in news media in February 2013 after the website The Smoking Gun reported he was responsible for hacking the AOL account of Dorothy Bush Koch, sister of former president George W. Bush. Family photos of former president George H. W. Bush, who was in the hospital at the time, were circulated to the internet. He also circulated a self-portrait painted by George W. Bush. Lehel went on to hack a number of AOL, Yahoo!, Flickr, and Facebook accounts, giving him access to information about current and former high-level government officials.
