I can't believe that b**** is gonna get away with it. There has got to be a lot of angry people at Langley and elsewhere right now.

So, there is no longer a rule of law in this country?

Because if I had committed 0.01% of the security violations that she's committed, I would still be locked under Leavenworth, getting fresh air on alternate Thursdays.

People keep saying that. It's been the case for years. The question is, how will we use that fact for good?

ETA: Just for grins, here's a link to the story: FBI: Clinton 'extremely careless' about emails but shouldn't be charged

And another

Declaration, Facts submitted to a candid world, point the fifteenth?

A bit of a stretch, but it's the best analogy to 'one law for me, another for thee' that this embodies. I'd be there with First Shirt, under the damn prison. FML.

Would it be a stretch for a group of States to apply the above? Notwithstanding the previous exercise at that endeavor, it would appear we have a longer and longer list of these original abuses which are being acted out by our own fed.gov, and a repeat attempt could be justified by some as valid.

It's also interesting how this comes so closely on the heels of Bill's visit with Loretta Lynch about his grandchildren. :roll:

And I'd be in the cell next to you.

I love how the FBI Director focused on "lack of criminal intent" as if that ever had any relevance to security handling.
"Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information," he said.

Comey said seven email chains were classified at the “Top Secret/Special Access Program level” when they were sent and received on Clinton’s server.
That right there disqualifies her from holding any clearance ever again, and, in a sane society operating on the rule of law, would bar her from any office requiring access to classified information. Unfortunately, we ain't in such a society anymore.

Apparently, Comer was being VERY selective in which statutes he referenced, Per Andrew McCarthy over at NRO:
Hitlery Clinton checked every box required for a felony violation of Section 793(f) of the federal penal code (Title 18): With lawful access to highly classified information she acted with gross negligence in removing and causing it to be removed it from its proper place of custody, and she transmitted it and caused it to be transmitted to others not authorized to have it, in patent violation of her trust.
...even before I read MHI, my response to seeing a poster for the stars of the latest Twilight movies was "I see 2 targets and a collaborator".
