During my Air Force Career I was once accidentally exposed to classified information above my clearance level. It wasn’t a big deal, and I wasn’t even in any position to understand it, as it was well outside my field of knowledge. Nevertheless, the Air Force went to some lengths to make sure that I was very creeped out. It worked. They’re good at that, when they want to be.
This was, ironically now, during the first Clinton administration.
According to FBI Director James Comey, Hillary Clinton and her senior aides trafficked something like 110 classified messages outside the State Department’s secure systems that were marked classified at the time. That, by the law, could be 110 felonies for each person involved. That Clinton set up not one server but several to accomplish this speaks to intent to mishandle said information. Why else did she go out of her way to pay out of her own pocket to set up a server farm in her house to handle information for her day job? Who does that, and why? Convenience? That’s anything but convenient. Obviously she wanted to skirt FOIA laws, at a minimum. She may have been trading favors and access via the Clinton Foundation, trading on her connections and influence, etc.
Contrary to what Comey said today, any reasonable prosecutor would look at the file on Clinton’s activities and the barrage of lies she told to cover it all up — and the schedule burning, etc — as further evidence of intent, and at the original actions of setting up the server in the first place. And a grand jury would be impaneled, and prosecution would follow.
For anyone not named Clinton, that is. The Clintons are master cover-up engineers, but in this case there’s no longer a cover-up. The DOJ, the FBI and the sitting president himself could not be more obvious and open in their complicity. They’re practically giddy about it.
