FBI “A Team” Involved In Clinton Email Server Probe

If Hillary Clinton was a lower level government employee, she would most likely already be under indictment. If she was running one of those evil Big Corporations, multiple federal agencies would have rushed in with warrants. But, it’s nice to see that the best are now being used

(Fox News) An FBI “A-team” is leading the “extremely serious” investigation into Hillary Clinton’s server and the focus includes a provision of the law pertaining to “gathering, transmitting or losing defense information,” an intelligence source told Fox News.

The section of the Espionage Act is known as 18 US Code 793.

A separate source, who also was not authorized to speak on the record, said the FBI will further determine whether Clinton should have known, based on the quality and detail of the material, that emails passing through her server contained classified information regardless of the markings. The campaign’s standard defense and that of Clinton is that she “never sent nor received any email that was marked classified” at the time.

It is not clear how the FBI team’s findings will impact the probe itself. But the details offer a window into what investigators are looking for — as the Clinton campaign itself downplays the controversy.

Ed Morrissey provides a pretty good explanation of how that section of the Espionage Act applies. It should be noted that Republicans drive out, or at least attempt to drive out, their own people who have been accused of breaking minor laws. Remember Larry Craig? His offense was a misdemeanor. Hillary has certainly been involved in Bad Behavior, if not illegal behavior.

Clinton told reporters Friday that she remains confident no violations were committed.

“I have said repeatedly that I did not send nor receive classified material and I’m very confident that when this entire process plays out that will be understood by everyone,” she said. “It will prove what I have been saying and it’s not possible for people to look back now some years in the past and draw different conclusions than the ones that were at work at the time. You can make different decisions because things have changed, circumstances have changed, but it doesn’t change the fact that I did not send or receive material marked classified.”

What, was she sending smoke signals? Faxes? Classified material was, in fact, found in her emails in her insecure emails, which flowed through her server. Furthermore, even emails that weren’t classified included information on the business of the State Department and United States government. How can we possibly trust someone who intentionally skirted, and most likely broke, the law and common sense regarding security? Companies and governments at all levels work hard to secure their systems, and spend gobs of money doing so. Yet, even they are not totally secure, hence all the hacking issues (see Ashley Madison, Target, IRS, etc). Here was Hillary, using a totally insecure server doing the business of government.

Heck, one would have thought she would want the business of the Clinton Foundation to be as secure as possible.
