FBI Focuses On Possible Espionage Act Violations By Hillary

Democrats would like to tell us that this is all a witch hunt, and that she did nothing wrong

(Daily Caller) The FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s off-the-books email setup is reportedly focused on possible violations of the Espionage Act concerning “gross negligence” in the handling of national defense information.

According to Fox News, an intelligence source says that the probe is focused on sections of the Espionage Act which addresses security clearance holders who, “through gross negligence,” permit national defense information to be separated or abstracted from its secure location. The Act also requires the security holder “to make prompt report of such loss, theft, abstraction, or destruction to his superior officer.”

The punishment for failure to comply is a fine, imprisonment up to 10 years, or both.

“If someone knows there is an ongoing investigation and takes action to impede an investigation, for example destruction of documents or threatening of witnesses, that could be a separate charge but still remain under a single case,” the intelligence source told Fox.

For every Democrat who pooh poohs what Hillary and her compatriots did, ask yourself “how would I respond if a Republican did this?” If you’re honest with yourself, yeah, I know, that’s asking a lot, you’d be calling for her to be frog-marched off to jail.
