Somewhere near the top of your list of unpunished crimes by political elites sits Hillary Clinton. The Clintons may occupy several spots. They should. One of those may be her mishandling of top-secret material through an unlicensed, unregistered, unauthorized, unsecured private server.
The installation and use of this system violate numerous laws, but the one with the most severe (potential) consequences relate to national security. And that’s a problem for Hillary – and everyone that mishandled classified information at her direction.
There remain many Americans who don’t understand the rules, including the lifelong obligation that ANYONE granted access has to protect the information, and that the statutes are completely silent on “intent” regarding its compromise. In short, even if an inadvertent error is made resulting in the compromise (“spillage”) of classified information, that person is flat-out guilty of a felony – no questions asked.
Learn more than you ever needed to know about the subject here because it is worth your time both inside and outside the Clinton server debate, and I’m moving on to my next point.
Felonious von Pantsuit, to borrow from Kurt Schlichter, committed multiple felonies and violated her lifetime Non-Disclosure Agreement, as did her inner-circle, and they know it. This malfeasance should not go unpunished.
Someone do Something
Judicial Watch, because no one else seems to care, is representing American’s interests in the matter and pursuing this investigation. To that end, a Federal Judge just ordered Clinton to answer more questions.
The judge went on to recognize that while Clinton responded to written questions in a separate case, “those responses were either incomplete, unhelpful, or cursory at best. Simply put her responses left many more questions than answers.” Lamberth said that using written questions this time “will only muddle any understanding of Secretary Clinton’s state of mind and fail to capture the full picture, thus delaying the final disposition of this case even further.”
Lamberth even gave some examples of lingering questions about Clinton’s emails, such as how did she come to believe that her private emails would be preserved under normal State Department processes, who told her this and when, at what point did she learn department records management officials did not know about the server, “[a]nd why did she think that using a private server to conduct State Department business was permissible under the law in the first place?”
The best we can expect from Hillary is a rehash of old lies, but we might get some new ones as well. But it keeps these crimes closer to the bubbling public perception where it becomes apparent that numerous White House officials, including President Obama, knew that laws were being broken and did nothing.
The consequences were real and many, including the Chinese government hacking State department email and acquiring classified information from the server in real-time. Intelligence that was probably hacked by other nations or sold by hackers or the Chinese to interested parties around the globe.
Here are the penalties for violation of Title 18 USC – Espionage: $10,000 fine for EACH offense, up to life imprisonment without parole, or the death penalty in certain circumstances.
This is a significant data breach, and it was the result of a deliberate act by people who knew better, ignored by a complicit President and the Obama Administration. All to hide what they were doing from public scrutiny, which itself is a significant issue.
A scandal that was supposed to disappear into the night after Clinton won the Oval Office.
That, Ukraine, and every other dirty deed. All of which will disappear the moment we put another Democrat in the White House.
Let’s not do that, mmm-kay?
