Despite decades of accusations, investigations, lies, and deaths of those associated with the Clinton’s, they continue to prove to the world that they are a protected couple above the laws that apply to everyone else.
When testifying before the Benghazi Select Committee in October of 2015, Hillary Clinton said to us under oath, “there was nothing marked classified on my emails, either sent or received.”
We now know that statement is patently false, according to the FBI.
The FBI’s findings further show that Clinton falsely testified that her attorneys “went through every single email” looking for work-related content. Not so, says the FBI. She claimed that she only used one server during her time as secretary of State. False again.
The FBI “completely ignored” that fact that there was highly classified signals intelligence in Clinton’s email, including information that was taken verbatim from Top Secret NSA briefings in 2011.
FBI Director James Comey laid out a series of egregious failures by then-Secretary of State Clinton in her handling of classified materials. He said she was “extremely reckless” with “very sensitive, highly classified information.” Despite all these findings, Comey announced that the FBI recommend against criminal prosecution. To warrant a criminal charge, Mr. Comey said, there had to be evidence that Mrs. Clinton intentionally transmitted or willfully mishandled classified information. The F.B.I. found neither, and as a result, he said, “our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.
The FBI granted immunity to so many key players during its investigation – including Hillary’s lawyer Heather Samuelson, State Department IT boss John Bental, and by far the most consequential figure, Cheryl Mills, that there was no way agents were ever going to get enough traction to recommend prosecution.
Just as she’d done years before in the TravelGate controversy, Hillary Clinton escaped the long arm of the law with a very similar excuse. In 2000, Independent Counsel Robert Ray issued his final report on Travelgate. He sought no charges against Hillary Clinton, saying that while some of Clinton’s statements were factually false, there was insufficient evidence that these statements were either knowingly false or that she understood that her statements led to the firings.
