American national security secrets kept in a bathroom?

Alright, there's a concern about someone hacking into Hillary Clinton's private server and stealing potentially uber-sensitive state secrets. I get that. But a server, in a bathroom, in a private business, guarded by what, a night guard?

A smart Russian or Chinese team could get the entire server out.  Suddenly it seems beyond dumb, beyond careless, it seems farcical. That it is in a bathroom only adds to the absurdity but it also brings to light the precarious and foolhardy nature of Hillary's private server.
The IT company Hilary Clinton chose to maintain her private email account was run from a loft apartment and its servers were housed in the bathroom closet, Daily Mail Online can reveal.

Daily Mail Online tracked down ex-employees of Platte River Networks in Denver, Colorado, who revealed the outfit's strong links to the Democratic Party but expressed shock that the 2016 presidential candidate chose the small private company for such a sensitive job.

One, Tera Dadiotis, called it 'a mom and pop shop' which was an excellent place to work, but hardly seemed likely to be used to secure state secrets. And Tom Welch, who helped found the company, confirmed the servers were in a bathroom closet.

It can also be disclosed that the small number of employees who were aware of the Clinton contract were told to keep it secret.
Hillary's cavalier dismissal of the concerns raised should not disqualify her from running for president.  But her cavalier lack of concern for national security - as Secretary of State no less - should disqualify her from a chance of ever winning.
