Dem Rep. Schiff: A Private Server Was Certainly a Mistake And Added Security Vulnerability


Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) discusses Attorney General Loretta Lynch's meeting with ex-President Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton's questioning by the FBI, and the latest terror attack in Bangladesh.

JOHN DICKERSON, CBS 'FACE THE NATION' MODERATOR: Didn't having a private server at home leave a huge security vulnerability for the Secretary of State?

REP. ADAM SCHIFF (D-CA): Well, using a private server was certainly a mistake, and the secretary acknowledged using any personal server, whether it was private or a commercial personal server was a vulnerability. But we have to have perspective. The State Department's own server has been hacked. We know that that has been successfully breached...

The best practice is obviously to use a government server at all times and to make improvements to the servers which we are still light years from perfecting. But yes, it was an unnecessary vulnerability to use a private server, and the secretary acknowledged that.
