I served a couple of decades+ in the military. I had a TS clearance the entire time. No intent is required. If I had done what she did, I would have had my clearance revoked, been court marshaled, dishonorably discharged and sent to Leavenworth. I've seen many military personnel and civilians get prosecuted over the years. The act of improperly dealing with classified alone is enough to prosecute. BTW, her intent was clear. She was using a pay to play scheme whereby she used her position as Secretary of State to do favors for foreigners and foreign nations in exchange for donations to the Clinton Foundation or direct payoffs by paying for speeches and other means. (See Uranium One deal in the in NY Times, Apr 2015.) She needed her email to be outside of the government for this purpose.
