17. Clinton was allowed to fill all the top positions with her people

This meant that everyone else reported to Clinton via a Clinton person, who might also have been on Clinton's server. Other than trying to raise the issue with the President or one of his top people, any State person would be speaking out against their boss and their boss' boss.

You are trying to give her a break by suggesting someone should have said no. In fact, the full extent of what she had done appears not to have been understood until nearly a year after she left. I would assume that the people who typically handle these things were completely intimidated by her and her people. (That said, it may take years to get that inside story. I suspect that those people were likely happy to have the more rule following Kerry.)
