18. But leaking Plame's identity ...

... endangered her and her family, endangered other operatives she had associated with while she was under cover, endangered innocent people she had associated with who might have then been accused of being spies, and genuinely put state secrets at risk. And all for a political angle/payback agenda.

That is infinitely worse - i.e., more risky - than maintaining a private email server, and the point is that if any republican was NOT outraged by the Plame incident, then they have zero credibility for any opinion on HRC's emails based on National Security concerns. They don't really care about security - they want to pile on Hillary. I think it's a BETTER analogy/talking point than the Bondi-gate scandal.
