62. Yes. It is valid.

There are layers of security in the federal government's server system.

You might be able to break into the "lobby" of the server and gather the names and personal data of some low-level staffers, but you can bet the national security secrets have additional "locks, guard dogs and protections" that the "lobby" doesn't have.

Think of it like your house. You accidentally leave a window unlocked and a thief gets into your house. He may help himself to your chachkies, television and computer, but your really valuable stuff - your money, your jewels, your diary, whatever you consider valuable - is in a locked room that uses fingerprint scanner to open and in that room is a Rottweiler guarding the locked safe. Chances are, the thief isn't going to get in there.

Hillary's server, from all reports, didn't even have the security one has after changing the locks on the front door of a home you just purchased. They didn't even encrypt the VPN. Any Joe Blow could command her computer directly from the Internet.
