Daily Update

“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.

For example, seven e-mail chains concern matters that were classified at the Top Secret/Special Access Program level when they were sent and received. These chains involved Secretary Clinton both sending e-mails about those matters and receiving e-mails from others about the same matters. There is evidence to support a conclusion that any reasonable person in Secretary Clinton’s position, or in the position of those government employees with whom she was corresponding about these matters, should have known that an unclassified system was no place for that conversation. In addition to this highly sensitive information, we also found information that was properly classified as Secret by the U.S. Intelligence Community at the time it was discussed on e-mail (that is, excluding the later “up-classified” e-mails).

None of these e-mails should have been on any kind of unclassified system, but their presence is especially concerning because all of these e-mails were housed on unclassified personal servers not even supported by full-time security staff, like those found at Departments and Agencies of the U.S. Government—or even with a commercial service like Gmail.” 

The rest of FBI Director James Comey statement is here.  When you read the statement, one can only conclude that Director Comey’s sterling reputation has been tarnishedLady Justice is no longer blind; today her biased judgement brought America closer to becoming an oligarchy. 

Here is what the Washington Times thinks of Director Comey’s statement.  “He said that shouldn’t be seen as a green light to others — indeed, he said those who behave like Mrs. Clinton often face administrative sanctions from their employers, or lose security privileges. But with Mrs. Clinton out of office now, neither of those alternatives is available in her case.” 

The really sad part is that her followers don’t care.  They will support Hillary and see her as a victim of the vast right-ring media conspiracy rather than a woman so careless she endangers the safety of American citizens.  Hillary’s covetous desire to be president is all that matters to her and her inner circle; her lack of judgement in getting there is a wake-up call to all American’s.  She will stop at nothing to attain her dream and today the FBI Director gave her carte blanche to pursue it.

But only if your name is Clinton.
