What Happens if Hillary Isn't Indicted?
Just when we were thinking it couldn't get much worse with Hillary's email scandal, an inspector general's unclassified letter to lawmakers tells us the former secretary of state was keeping the most classified of all intelligence material -- beyond "top secret" -- on her homebrew server.
Fox News exclusively obtained the unclassified letter, sent Jan. 14 from Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III. It laid out the findings of a recent comprehensive review by intelligence agencies that identified "several dozen" additional classified emails -- including specific intelligence known as "special access programs" (SAP).
Note there were several dozen of these SAP emails, not just the two we previously heard about that didn't even reach this classification. Those included satellite photos of North Korea. What do you suppose this is? Gross negligence is the important criminal standard here and it sounds as if it's been passed by the proverbial country mile.
Nevertheless, it's undoubtedly more than mere negligence, gross or otherwise. Catherine Herridge and Pamela Browne's report continues:
“There is absolutely no way that one could not recognize SAP material,” a former senior law enforcement with decades of experience investigating violations of SAP procedures told Fox News. “It is the most sensitive of the sensitive.”
So why was this public letter sent now? Although this does not come directly from the FBI, my sense is that we are being prepared for the recommendation of an indictment, probably indictments -- and that they will come soon, in all likelihood before we get too far into the primary season, possibly even before Iowa. It's a safe guess FBI Director Comey would not want to interrupt the electoral season more than necessary. That's one of the reasons 150 agents are investigating the case.
This does not mean, of course, that Clinton will be indicted. The Obama Justice Department could not be more politicized (at least in our system). The mainstream media will do their best to abet a cover-up -- a Google search of "New York Times + Charles McCullough III" yields, unsurprisingly, nothing on the letter, even though the allegations make Watergate seem the most minor faux pas. Who knows how many lives were put at risk, or even destroyed, by Clinton's "gross negligence."
So we are left with the equation of what happens if Hillary isn't indicted?
