The Smoking Gun

Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton's version of Tonto or Boy Robin revealed in deposition:

Clinton did not want the State Department emails that she sent and received on her private computer server to be accessible to "anybody,"

Associated Press

There is no way Hillary Clinton, an attorney, Senator, and wife of a two-term president can plead ignorance of the Federal Records Act of 1950 and the Freedom of Information Act of 1966.

The Federal Records Act is the "basis for the Federal Government's policies and procedures for creating, maintaining, and disposing of Federal records. The act and its related regulations define Federal records, mandate the creation and preservation of those records necessary to document Federal activities, establish Government ownership of records, and provide the exclusive legal procedures for the disposition of records."

The Freedom of Information Act defines agency records subject to disclosure, outlines mandatory disclosure procedures and grants nine exemptions to the statute. It  requires agencies to publish their rules of procedure in the Federal Register, 5 U.S.C. § 552(a)(1)(C), and to make available for public inspection and copying their opinions, statements of policy, interpretations, and staff manuals and instructions that are not published in the Federal Register, § 552(a)(2). In addition, § 522(a)(3) requires every agency, "upon any request for records which. . . reasonably describes such records" to make such records "promptly available to any person." 

Ignorance of the law is no excuse, but if you want to make that argument in re. to Hillary Clinton I would simply say that if true it simply underscores her incompetency as an attorney and as a federal executive. Honestly, at this point it should be "Game Over" for Hillary Clinton.
