F.B.I. Director James Comey Recommends No Charges for Hillary Clinton on Email
The F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, said on Tuesday that the bureau would not recommend criminal charges in Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information, lifting an enormous legal cloud from her presidential campaign, hours before her first joint campaign appearance with President Obama.
To summarize: By Clinton’s public admission, she witheld at least 30,000 emails in direct violation of the Federal Records Act. Each witheld email constitutes a felony whose penalties specifically include being prohibited from holding public office.
She violated the FRA by using a personal email system without authorization.
She violated the shit out of the Espionage Act by sending and receiving classified information. One email released specifically instructed an underling to strip classification markings from some classified data and send it nonsecurely. She provided that trove of emails to her uncleared attorney, meaning she gave classified material to an unauthorized person. (My tracert and test emails also suggested that she was routing all email traffic through an spam filtering and archiving company, so who else has copies?)
She lied when she claimed she had turned over all relevant emails, only to have the FBI turn up hundreds more.
Meanwhile, the Clinton campaign has suggested that President Clinton would reappoint oughta-be-Lynched to her cabinet level position. That came after Lynch’s oh-so-innocent “coincidental” half hour meeting with Billy Jeff.
Basically, Clinton just walked after doing more than Private Manning.
The law means nothing. It’s always been biased and “equal protection” got little more than a passing nod, but now it is dead. Officially, that is. You may recall that I always predicted this would happen; that there would be no indictment.
