Predicting the Clinton defense

According to the Wall Street Journal, Hillary Clinton's unsecured email under criminal investigation did involve national security:
The vaguely worded messages didn’t mention the “CIA,” “drones” or details about the militant targets, officials said.

The still-secret emails are a key part of the FBI investigation that has long dogged Mrs. Clinton’s campaign, these officials said.

They were written within the often-narrow time frame in which State Department officials had to decide whether or not to object to drone strikes before the CIA pulled the trigger, the officials said.

Law-enforcement and intelligence officials said State Department deliberations about the covert CIA drone program should have been conducted over a more secure government computer system designed to handle classified information.
I can already see Hillary's defense: (1) this is nothing new (2) I already admitted I did not take the best course of action (3) while wrong, this is small potatoes and no real damage was done and (4) "vast right wing conspiracy".  And she will be holding that line, even if she's being hauled away in handcuffs.
