Hillary Clinton is worried about Internet security. That's why she will not share videos of her granddaughter.
Clinton, who is facing criticism of the way she handled work-related emails at the State Department,
"Do you share videos?" Clinton's interviewer asked. "My mom sends videos to all across the country, any time we send her anything, any pictures or videos. Do you share videos with friends?"
"We don't, because of security and other things," said Clinton. "But we get a lot of videos and a lot of pictures and we are anxious for them every single day. And especially as I'm travelling around the country, I want to see what's happening with Charlotte that day. So my daughter and her wonderful husband have been great."
Clinton, of course, was not as concerned when it came to sending emails from her work server. As we have now learned, Clinton shared classified emails on her homebrew server.

Clinton made the comments in an interview with Jaime Harrison, who is chairman of the South Carolina Democratic party.

The inspector general of the State Department confirmed today in Senate testimony that the State Department network at some point was hacked. He made the comments in response to a question from Georgia senator David Perdue.
Perdue asked, “Do you have evidence that the State Department’s network has been attacked, and does that affect you guys?”
A top intelligence official under President Obama, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, says that the chances Hillary Clinton's private emails were hacked is "very high." Flynn, who ran the Defense Intelligence Agency but is now retired, called it hackings "likely."
Flynn made the comments to Megyn Kelly last night on Fox News:

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently suspended all background investigations on current and prospective Customs and Border Protection (CBP) employees due to security concerns over Personally Identifiable Information (PII).
