Background On the day of the first Senate Confirmation hearing for Hillary Clinton's Secretary of State nomination, the domain names clintonemail.com, wjcoffice.com, and presidentclinton.com were registered under the name "Eric Hoteham"[10] using Clinton's Chappaqua, New York home as the contact address. The domains were pointed to a private email server, from which Background On the day of the first Senate Confirmation hearing for Hillary Clinton's Secretary of State nomination, the domain names clintonemail.com, wjcoffice.com, and presidentclinton.com were registered under the name "Eric Hoteham"[10] using Clinton's Chappaqua, New York home as the contact address. The domains were pointed to a private email server, from which Clinton, who never had a state.gov email account, sent and received email. Although no evidence has emerged that clintonemail.com was ever actually compromised, this exposed her communications as Secretary of State to a risk of hacking and foreign surveillance according to several security experts, including Chris Soghoian. Other government officials, and Secretaries of State before her, had also used private email for official business, and experts agree that this is allowed by federal law in case of emergencies. Jason R. Baron, the former head of litigation at the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), described the practice as "highly unusual" but not a violation of the law. In a separate interview, he said, "It is very difficult to conceive of a scenario—short of nuclear winter—where an agency would be justified in allowing its cabinet-level head officer to solely use a private email communications channel for the conduct of government business." Public attention NARA officials in 2009, had expressed concerns over possible violations of normal Federal recordkeeping procedures at the Department of State under Secretary Clinton. A March 2, 2015 New York Times article broke the story that Clinton had used her own private email server rather than a government-issued one throughout her time as U.S. Secretary of State, and that her aides took no action to preserve emails sent or received from her personal accounts as required by law. On March 27, 2015, Trey Gowdy, Chairman of the Benghazi panel, asserted that some time after October 2014, Clinton "unilaterally decided to wipe her server clean" and "summarily decided to delete all emails." Clinton's attorney, David E. Kendall, said that day that an examination showed that no copies of any of Clinton's emails remained on the server. Kendall said the server was reconfigured to only retain emails for 60 days after Clinton lawyers had decided which emails needed to be turned over.
