VIA| Hillary Clinton and General David Petraeus both misused their classified emails.
The difference is that General Petraeus is a military hero and four-star general who fought for our country and had the honor to own up to his mistake. Hillary, not so much.
Petraeus was forced to resign as Director of the CIA while Hillary runs for the highest office in the country.
Now everything could change for Hillary…
From Fox News:
Fox News exclusively obtained the text of the unclassified letter, sent Jan. 14 from Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III. It laid out the findings of a recent comprehensive review by intelligence agencies that identified “several dozen” additional classified emails — including specific intelligence known as “special access programs” (SAP).
That indicates a level of classification beyond even “top secret,” the label previously given to two emails found on her server, and brings even more scrutiny to the presidential candidate’s handling of the government’s closely held secrets.
“To date, I have received two sworn declarations from one [intelligence community] element. These declarations cover several dozen emails containing classified information determined by the IC element to be at the confidential, secret, and top secret/sap levels,” said the IG letter to lawmakers with oversight of the intelligence community and State Department. “According to the declarant, these documents contain information derived from classified IC element sources.”
Intelligence from a “special access program,” or SAP, is even more sensitive than that designated as “top secret” – as were two emails identified last summer in a random sample pulled from Clinton’s private server she used as secretary of state. Access to a SAP is restricted to those with a “need-to-know” because exposure of the intelligence would likely reveal the source, putting a method of intelligence collection — or a human asset — at risk. Currently, some 1,340 emails designated “classified” have been found on Clinton’s server, though the Democratic presidential candidate insists the information was not classified at the time.
“There is absolutely no way that one could not recognize SAP material,” a former senior law enforcement with decades of experience investigating violations of SAP procedures told Fox News. “It is the most sensitive of the sensitive.”
At the heart of General Petraeus’ prosecution was a non-disclosure agreement where he agreed to protect closely held government programs.
Clinton signed an identical non-disclosure agreement on Jan. 22, 2009.
According to Fox, no one in the intelligence community has disputed their findings and the letter may become public because its findings are unclassified.
Most importantly, a former federal law enforcement official said Hillary’s actions represents a potential violation of USC 18 Section 793, “gross negligence” in the handling of secure information under the Espionage Act.
