WhyHillaryCintonCannotBeIndicted <– PDF version
The U. S. State Department, having dragged its feet as long as it could, has finally released all the emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private, unauthorized email server. All total, over 2,000 of those emails are classified, some at very high levels of secrecy. Mrs. Clinton has consistently claimed that “none of them were marked classified at the time”. That proves, if it proves anything, that Mrs. Clinton is either completely irresponsible or a moron. It is obvious even to casual thinkers that emails to and from the U. S. Secretary of State are of great interest to our nation’s enemies. It also seems logical that those emails could have been intercepted at many places on the internet without a need to attack her server directly. One would think that a person in their right mind holding a highly sensitive office like Secretary of State would make the appropriate application and assume all their emails should be protected by a classified server — but not Mrs. Clinton.
After Mrs. Clinton had her staff attempt to delete the emails off her server, and after the whole matter came to light, the FBI was tasked with recovering those emails (she thought were gone), and to examine whether any laws had been broken. There are some who believe that Mrs. Clinton could be indicted at least for gross negligence. But I suspect that will never happen. FBI Director James Comey testified before Congress on 1 Mar 2016. He was asked by Congressman Steve Chabot when he thought the investigation would be wrapped up one way or the other. Director Comey’s response was:
“I can’t, congressman, as you know we don’t talk about our investigations. What I can assure you is that I am very close personally to that investigation to ensure that we have the resources we need, including people and technology, and that it’s done the way the FBI tries to do all of it’s work: independently, competently and promptly. That’s our goal, and I’m confident that it’s being done that way, but I can’t give you any more details beyond that.”
It is strange indeed that the FBI Director would have a personal hand in the “investigation”. I hope I am proven wrong, but I suspect Mr. Comey is directly involved in order to ensure that all the evidence is collected up and destroyed, exactly the way Mrs. Clinton wanted it; just the way President Barack “I lied, period” Obama ordered it. The FBI is certainly thorough; once they are done, there won’t be proof that Hillary Clinton ever worked at the State Department. That kind of thoroughness takes time.
Mrs. Clinton cannot be indicted: she is too high on the political food chain to be inconvenienced by having to take responsibility for her actions. Like I said, I hope I am proven wrong, but it seems in these modern times that “taking responsibility” is only for the little people.
