Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

FBI HIllary Investigation Centering on Violation of Espionage Act

The issue that Hillary keep trying (…and trying, and trying…) to dismiss as nothing, just the same old partisan politics, seems to be a lot more serious than all that.

New reports suggest the FBI investigation into Clinton’s email server is focusing on possible violations of the Espionage Act.

The investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state is centered around 18 USC 793, a section of law related to gathering and transmitting national-defense information.

Two emails reportedly found on Clinton’s server from 2009 and 2011 contained information regarded as “Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information,” one of the highest levels of classification. The two emails were drawn out of a batch of only 40 randomly selected from about 30,000 “work-related” emails that Clinton turned over to the State Department from her time as secretary of state.

Some of the information — such as communications intercepted via satellite or drone — is protected under 18 USC 798, which means they have tighter rules and higher penalties.

Massimo Calabresi of Time recently noted that the law “makes it a crime to knowingly mishandle such secrets.”

As a result, the FBI’s investigation has gone “way beyond what the intelligence community’s Inspector General ever would do,” a senior intelligence official familiar with the case told Time.

For her part, Hillary has pulled w-a-y back from her unambiguous March declaration that there was no classified information on her email server. For those keeping score at home, her current statement (emphasis added) is:

“I never sent any classified material nor received any marked classified.”

Oh, Hillary, playing with words again. Won’t you ever learn?
