Was Hillary Clinton merely careless, reckless even, or was her attitude one of cold disregard for rules and ethics knowing she can always get away with anything?

Recent emails and FBI memo show that Hillary Clinton regularly asked her maid to print out sensitive government emails and documents for her including ones containing classified information. The printing by the maid for Hillary happened at the former Secretary of State's house in Washington, D.C. called the Whitehaven. Trouble is the housekeeper did not have the security clearance from the state to handle such material.

Marina Santos, a Filipino immigrant, was employed primarily to run the Clinton household, but several email exchanges from Hillary and her top aides show that it was a given that Santos was expected to handle the printing of sensitive, at times classified, information for Clinton.

Top aides at the State Department first emailed highly sensitive messages to Hillary, then forwarded the same including all attachments to Santos for printing.

Among the things Clinton asked Santos to print out included drafts of her speeches, confidential memos and call sheets- background information and talking points prepared for Hillary in advance of a phone call with a foreign head of state.

One classified email had the subject line " Revisions to Iran points" that a Clinton aide from the State Department sent to Hillary with the message that Santos was trying to print for her. It was marked "confidential", the tier below "secret" and "top secret".

There were several other instances when either Hillary or her top aides would mention in their emails that they have instructed Santos to print the sensitive documents.

Santos also had free access to a highly secure room called SCIF ( sensitive compartmented information facility) that diplomatic security agents had arranged to be set up at Whitehaven, even without the needed security clearance from state authorities. FBI notes from their interview with Clinton aide Abedin proves that.

From within the SCIF, Santos collected documents from the secure facsimile machine for Hillary. Such documents included highly sensitive matters as the Presidential Daily Brief - a top secret document prepared by the CIA and other U.S. intelligence agencies.

Curiously, Santos was never interviewed by the FBI for its investigation into the Hillary email scandal.

Santos could help in pointing the whereabouts of the missing Apple Macbook laptop and USB flash drive that contain all of Hillary's emails archived from her over fours years in office.

In 2013, Clinton aide Hanley downloaded all Hillary's emails from her private server to the laptop and flash drive.

This can further escalate criticisms against Hillary. How can Americans trust her with handling the nation's sensitive matters when she could not even ensure that sensitive state documents will only go through official hands?
