Hillary was in office immediately after Bush II left office. And even she left office several years ago. It's interesting how you specific you are about the statute of limitations: No more than 7.5 years and no less than 3.5 years.
Nor does that cover Jeb!'s use of his own server, nor the folks in Congress who use their aides' private accounts instead. Jeb was in the same political race as Hillary only a few months ago. Some of those folks in Congress are still in office.
Yes, the whole "they did it too" is childish. But "it's only illegal when they do it" is even worse.
Further, it's hard to attack Hillary on this without attacking others.
The Bush II White House, against the rules, used a private mail server at the Republican Party headquarters. Jeb Bush used his own mail server. It was common to hear Congressmen declare that they "didn't use email" - instead having their aides do their emailing through private accounts. The real question here is "why didn't anyone in either party want to use the official servers?"
One hint is the claim that phishing and anti-virus features had to be turned off for *everyone* on the government server to receive emails from Clinton, rather than just adding an exception for email from her server. For all the signs of mismanagement on Clinton's server, the State Department technical staff isn't looking any better.
BTW, that fact that "Clinton's private email server was attacked multiple times in one day" means exactly nothing. I run two company and one personal email servers and all three are under attack 24/7.
> ...and the other companies haven't said a word on when (or whether) their air cars will be ready.
Sure they have. In 1998 MDI announced that Mexico City had purchased a fleet of 40,000 compressed air taxis, hitting the streets in two years.
Here they are in 2000 announcing production in South Africa. There were already two factories in France, with the first models expected on the streets later that year. There were also five factories planned for Mexico and Spain, with three in Australia.
They actually had a factory running in Italy with 90 employees from 2003 to 2005. Except that employees were "paid" via state benefits - a payroll to employees who, for special reasons due to the employers, are unable to perform their jobs. No cars were ever built by the factory.
Those examples were already well into their grand tour of the planet, with other production deals announced before and since in many other countries.
As the first link mentions, they weren't so much selling cars as they were selling priority rights ($300,000) for investors to invest MORE money into the franchised turnkey factories that MDI would soon be selling.
What about guns. Don't forget guns. You need to consider guns.
Now that there are guns that look like smart phones, if you stop smart phones from accessing porn, you stop guns from accessing porn. It's a slippery slope leading to everyone's guns being taken away. Or requiring law-abiding citizens to click an "I am 18" button before defending themselves from terrorists.
Not all countries have trustworthy judges. There are plenty of totalitarian governments, and plenty of democracies with corrupt judges.
Which is why U.S. law prohibits the likes of Apple, Facebook, and Google from intercepting communications on behalf of foreign agencies. And it's why Canada is party to the Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty, a diplomatic agreement that allows Canadian officials to review requests from foreign police and consider whether they are legal under Canadian law.
BlackBerry is allowing foreign police to bypass the process, with BlackBerry being the one that makes that decision, as opposed to the Canadian government.

There's have been plenty of people scooped up, disappeared and tortured by the US government - "the leader of the free world" - on the vaguest of evidence, later let go with an "er, never mind." Or in simple criminal law, cases where people were jailed purely through confirmation bias. The more details you have about someone, the more you can build a picture of guilt where none exists. A phone hands over a mountain of details.
Canadian cards will still make a purchase with just the mag strip and CVV. Occasionally a reader will have trouble with my chip (I should probably switch to the new card I got in the mail this week) and tell me to use the mag stripe.
Since the ERAD badgepoint theft device likely doesn't spit out money but instead just transfers it to another account, it'll probably fall under the purchase rather than withdrawal rules.

No doubt Britain Germany and Italy do too. But you don't see American officials being extradited there over kidnapping and torture, and so you won't see American officials extradited over a mere search engine squabble.
Google has the option of not doing business in France. It can still run a French-language search engine and charge for advertising in other countries. But with no office or business in France itself, it would be beyond the reach of any French court decisions.
