Reckless handling of classified material does not require 'malicious intent'

Washington Post:
US officials: Scant evidence, so far, that Clinton had malicious intent in handling of emails
Prosecutors and FBI agents investigating Hillary Clinton's use of a personal email server have so far found scant evidence that the leading Democratic presidential candidate intended to break classification rules, though they are still probing the case ...
Malicious intent is a misleading element in a case where the charge is recklessness.   Suppose you had classified documents that were supposed to be kept in a safe and you left for the day leaving the safe unlocked.  That could be considered recklessness, and placing material on an unsecured server certainly falls into that category.
