State Dept. Never Told DHS About Hillary's Server Despite The Rules

The drip, drip, drip, of Hillary Clinton's scandals continues.

Here's another federal government ruled that Hillary may have broke. Since 2010 all federal government agencies are mandated to submit a list of systems, vulnerabilities and configuration issues to DHS every 30 days. DHS then performs a "cyberscope audit" to ensure security. DHS says they have no record of State Dept. giving info for Clinton server audit, despite rules

Based on a Freedom of Information Act request submitted June, DHS has no record of whether Clinton's State Department was in compliance (shocking I know).
Clinton headed the agency from 2009-2013. The DHS established the "Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation" program in 2010, amid growing concerns government systems could be vulnerable to cyber attack. But Clinton's computer server, through which she and key aides sent and received tens of thousands of emails, was apparently never audited, according to DHS, which conducted a comprehensive search of Office of Cyber Security and Communications records after lodged its request.

"Unfortunately, we were unable to locate or identify any responsive records," wrote Sandy Ford Page, chief of Freedom of Information Act operations for DHS.
What this means is under Hillary the State Department never allowed DHS to figure out whether or not the Democratic candidate's personal server was secure. Perhaps she didn't really care.  It's not just that she broke the rules, but its her lack of concern for national security that is

The State Department did not comment on requests about why it did not comply with the DHS security review requirement.
"There are reviews and investigations under way, including by the IG and Congress," said State Department Spokesman Alec Gerlach. "It would not be appropriate to comment on these matters at this time." 
Of course it would not be appropriated...because this is the most transparent Administration in the history of the universe (or something like that).
