Hillary’s email woes continue to haunt her everyday. It has just been revealed that her top secret emails were wide open to hackers and being run by ‘morons’ at a firm which was backing up her secret server. Do you think it’s about time that Hillary goes to jail for this?

A Daily Mail Online investigation has found that a second firm – hired to store a back-up of Clinton’s secret server – was so lax in its security employees failed to change passwords frequently and left computers logged in, unattended for extended periods and its own clients stumbled upon other clients data.
Datto Inc, the company in question, was hired to store Hilary’s emails by Platte River, the mom-and-pop company contracted to maintain her ‘homebrew’ email system.
Speaking exclusively to Daily Mail Online on condition of anonymity, one former employee at Datto, said the company was woefully exposed to being hacked.
