From January 2009 to February 2013  -- four years -- Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state.

During that time, she apparently did not use secure government email, instead choosing to use her own private account, which was not a violation at the time.

It is now, as the law has changed.  But even before the change, all private email was mandated to be preserved.  You couldn't erase anything.

And then there is a question of security.

It is much easier to tap into an email account that is not secure.

So once again, Hillary Clinton is in the middle of a controversy.

This one comes just a few days after It was revealed that the countries of Algeria and Qatar donated money to the Clinton Foundation.

Some of the money was sent before Hillary Clinton left the State Department, a conflict of interest.

So you can see that, as Gilda Radner once said, “It's always something.”

And that is beginning to worry some Democrats:

ROBERT GIBBS, OBAMA’S FORMER PRESS SECRETARY: “I think it is obviously highly unusual. ((EDIT) I think it's much easier for critics to explain why they don't exist than it might be for her to explain why she used her private email.”

((EDIT))

DAVID AXELROD, FORMER OBAMA SENIOR ADVISOR: “Why did she use a separate email?  How did she secure that email?  Was there another email through which she communicated with people?  By not answering these questions, they're allowing the story to fester in ways that are unhelpful.”

Now Talking Points believes the Hillary Clinton situation is pretty well defined.

Americans know her.  They know her husband, the former president.  They know the Clintons, as the Wall Street Journal points out, often walk a thin ethical line.

The quote the journal used is "this is how the Clintons roll."

It will be very hard for federal investigators to uncover any emails that Secretary Clinton may not have provided to the government, as she is compelled to do.

But if Mrs. Clinton did indeed hold back emails, that will hurt her presidential run dramatically.

And if she held emails back on Benghazi, she might even be prosecuted.

But those are big ifs.  And if history is any guideline, it will take years to get to the bottom of email-gate.

In the meantime, Hillary Clinton will run, millions of Americans will support her, and the sun will come up tomorrow.

That's just the way of the world.

But it should be noted that in a very dangerous time for America, It is imperative that we the people elect a president who is going to look out for us and not become bogged down in one controversy after another.

And that's the memo.
