This is not a security violation. It's his personal info in his personal email account. Granted it has info on people he's offering up to interview for his clearance, but they gave it to him willingly. Little different than an app asking for access to your contacts on your phone.
Stupid to have it just sitting there, but as a fellow cleared person, it is sometimes handy to have reference to that data. A thumb drive would be a better choice, but then I suppose that would be against policy too; bringing in personal thumb drives...
His interview on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC was pretty disastrous.
In what was basically a completely friendly environment he was eviscerated as to his 'plan'. He said he was a single issue candidate, to which Lawrence got him to change to at least a dual issue, of both finance AND gerrymandering. Certainly not bad things, but when you come in as a 'single issue' candidate it's best not to start creeping within 2 minutes of questioning.
All that aside, his point that the other Dems' proposals are basically just fantasy until you fix the two issues he's pushing is still entirely correct.

It's always talked about the force needed to hold the weight of itself. What is rarely mentioned is the stresses from upper atmospheric super fast winds. Or hey, hurricanes, or a jet liner hitting it.
I *love* the idea of a space elevator and perhaps the hurricanes could be resolved by moving the elevator if it's tied to an ocean located point but not sure how you get around the last part.
Someone intent on destroying it is going to be able to get an aircraft and hit the thing. Militarizing it to the point of completely empty airspace seems unlikely at best, especially at higher and higher altitudes.
