State Department IT staff among those in the dark about Clinton's private … – Fox News
Members of the State Department’s information technology team were among those who were unaware that Hillary Clinton was using a private e-mail address during her time as America’s top diplomat, the latest release of messages from the former secretary of state’s private server revealed late Monday.
