This is against State Department protocols and federal laws. This turned into a court case and a scandal that followed Clinton thought out her presidential campaign against Donald Trump.
Hilary Clinton is more than just the former first lady. Before the presidential election, Clinton had a career spanning over the course of around 40 years in public service to her country. She has spent that entire career advocating for women and children not only in America but also across the world.

You may have thought you knew everything there was to know about Hilary, but she has a whole set of accomplishments under her belt that people don't talk about. Here is a look at Hilary Clinton before the election and before the emails.
How it all started
It started with a Martin Luther King Speech in Chicago. Clinton was so inspired by the speech that she decided to go into public service and would become a democratic in 1968 because of that speech.
In 1999 Clinton became the first wife of a president to win public office and the first woman to be elected to the U.S. Senate from New York. During her time as Senator she helped write legislation that retained high-quality educators, improved the safety and quality of pediatric medication, and promoted quality education in developing countries.
Clinton became the 67th Secretary of State in 2009 under the Obama administration. In 2009 while she was Secretary of State Clinton stood up for the oppression of women and girls around the world. She dealt with everything from sex trafficking and sexual abuse. She also was a crusader for combating sexual violence against women and children in war and conflict zones around the world.
