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.

    And they haven’t even touched the influence peddling yet. Wait for John and Jeff to bounce in and tell us there is nothing to all this as it has been looked at for years. Despite the fact that she has perjured herself by telling everyone that there are no emails when there were. You see liberals, persistence pays when investigating scum like the Clintons.

    Was that Fix News source. Wayne Simmions? He has been on Fox as an expert over 90 times
    But of course HE himself. Was just indicted by the Feds on a wide variety of charges
    Teach Hillary is not a target of investigation over her emails. This is as fake a scandal of BENGAZZI!!!
    A nd you can bet Hillary will be showcasing the fake BENGAZZI !!! Investigation in her ads
    Hillary will be the next POTUS

    When I worked in classified areas we were required to walk the halls after everyone left for the day and police the area for negligent handling of classified material. We would walk through every office looking for papers left on desks, doodles on blotters, computers left on, magnetic media left out, file cabinets locked, safe knobs spun, formulas left on white boards, etc. ANYTHING that was discovered had to be written up, and the person who was negligent would have to go through retraining. If it happened a second time, they would lose their security access and possibly their jobs because they could no longer work. That’s just for negligence of lower classification material. If the material was highly classified, the punishment would be more severe. If they transmitted classified material offsite via email, or pulled a Sandy Berger and put papers in their undergarments, they would be fired and prosecuted.

    Once a month we would inventory all classified material. Each person would be required to open their safe and we would inventory every document in their possession. This would include scribbles, notes, doodles, whatever they wrote down that was sensitive and had to be locked up. This was all part of “to make prompt report of such loss, theft, abstraction, or destruction to his superior officer.”

    Everybody who had a clearance had to read the Espionage Acts and sign that they did so, initialing every page. Everyone knows that there is no tolerance for negligence. Everyone knows that the system is egalitarian. The lowest level person is required to report his highest boss for negligence, or he himself is violating the Espionage Acts. Everyone took it seriously.

    Now compare that behavior to Hillary Clinton’s and Huma’s behavior. And Obama’s defense of her behavior, even while an FBI investigation is under way. These people have no concern for national security. Only the security of The Party matters to them.

    You are correct. One time when we were in a foreign port a safe was found unlock even though the area was secured and locked. A major league butt chewing was given to all in the division along with a three day training exercise.

    If anyone pulled the stunt that Burger and Hillary have done they would be in prison right now.

    Good one, John. When you can’t attack the message attack the messenger. Wayne Simmions isn’t the source anyway, it’s someone inside the FBI.

    An anonymous “intelligence source”, reported by FOX, the propaganda arm of the Republican Party! We may wish to wait for the FBI report.

    The Republicans admit that their Congressional “investigations” of Clinton are politically motivated, since she’s the odds-on favorite to win the 2016 election. Strategically, the Repubs have to time this perfectly: If they chase Clinton too soon, they guarantee a President Biden. They have to wait until Clinton has gained or nearly gained the nomination. They would prefer to run against Senator Sanders.

  7. Jeffery says:

    Wayne Simmions isn’t the source anyway, it’s someone inside the FBI.

    The specific source was called an “intelligence source”, not an FBI source.

    The Wayne Simmons scandal comes from a “news” agency not vetting its sources. Anyway, Simmons feathered his own nest by lying, defrauded others by lying, since when is that a crime in America?
