ELDER PATIOT – Hillary Clinton has handed over the personal server and three thumb drives that she used while Secretary of State to investigators who have found them to be professionally scrubbed.
Mrs. Clinton knows that this puts her in violation of multiple criminal laws. For her to make the decision to take this approach to her subpoenaed hard drive means she chose the lesser of two (or more) evils. It’s now clear these drives contained the most sensitive of secret information and Mrs. Clinton is obfuscating the investigation in a last-ditch attempt to mitigate the charges that will be brought against her.
For those of us who have followed the Clinton’s since they first burst onto the Washington scene this comes as no surprise. They have utilized every lever of government to enrich themselves while silencing any objectors by blackmailing them through the use of secret information contained in the FBI files they illegally possessed.
These events now cast a shadow of the entire D.C. oversight apparatus and the entire federal law enforcement community – including the Department of Justice and the FBI – who consistently looked the other way despite mounting evidence against both Bill and Hillary. The same D.C. law enforcement apparatus that brought a heavy hammer down on those who were guilty of much less, if they were guilty of anything.
It is inarguable that President Obama had to know of Hillary’s lawlessness well before now but also chose to do nothing.
It is likely Mrs. Clinton will found guilty of purposely mishandling top-secret data, conspiracy to mishandle top-secret data, conspiracy to obstruct the investigation, and violation of the Espionage act, among dozens of other possible charges.
Andy McCarthy explained it in the National Review: In fact, the espionage act—which regulates the handling of intelligence by government officials — does not refer to classified information; it refers to information relating to the national defense. Moreover, it does not prohibit solely the transmission of such information; it criminalizes the communication, delivery, or transmission of that information; causing communication, delivery, or transmission of that information; permitting the removal of that information from its proper place of custody through gross negligence; permitting that information to be lost, stolen, abstracted, or destroyed through gross negligence; or, failing to make a prompt report to superiors in the government when an official knows that the information has been removed from its proper place of custody, communicated to someone not authorized to have it, lost, stolen, abstracted, or destroyed. See also Title 18 United States Code Section 2071 (prohibiting destruction of records).
We owe a deep debt of gratitude to the Inspector General for the Intelligence Community for the dogged determination required to finally bring this deceitful bitch to justice. With some luck hubby Bill will become implicated and the Clinton reign of terror over Washington and the country will be over.
