If I run somebody down with my car on purpose, it’s murder. If I accidentally run someone down while I’m driving with my feet, it is manslaughter or criminally-negligent homicide. Either way, somebody is dead and I’ll be before a judge explaining myself. When somebody screws up majorly and their conduct has been clearly negligent, that person must answer for their crime.
Somehow, though, Hillary Clinton remains not only free, but allowed to continue her flailing presidential bid.
On January 22nd, 2009, Hillary Clinton signed a Non-Disclosure agreement with the State Department that forbade her from leaking- intentionally or otherwise- confidential and classified material. Since signing that agreement, the former secretary of state has transmitted classified and even top-secret documents over a private, unsecured server that even a first-year MIT student could have hacked.
Though Hillary, Bernie Sanders and the adoring, compliant mainstream media have tried to downplay the seriousness of this breach of national security, the fact remains that Hillary quite clearly committed a serious crime and the only thing left to determine is whether she intentionally sought to weaken our national security or if she behaved in a criminally negligent manner.
“I have been advised that any breach of this Agreement may result in my termination of my access to SCI (Sensitive Compartmented Information) and removal from a position of special confidence,” the non-disclosure agreement (NDA) reads.
“I have been advised that any authorized disclosure of SCI by me may constitute violations of United States criminal laws, including provisions of Sections 793, 794, 798 and 952, Title 18 United States Code…”
Fox News reports on the aforementioned criminal codes:
These are provisions of the Espionage Act, and as Fox recently reported, 18 USC 793 subsection (f) is of special interest to the FBI investigation as it includes “gross negligence” in the handling of national defense information.
The NDA was first obtained through a federal lawsuit under the Freedom of Information Act by the Competitive Enterprise Institute, or CEI, which says on its website that it is a “…non-profit public policy organization dedicated to advancing the principles of limited government, free enterprise, and individual liberty.”
The NDA signed by Mrs. Clinton as Secretary of State is significant because the State Department has never publicly acknowledged that she signed documents, confirming she was “advised that the unauthorized disclosure, unauthorized retention, or negligent handling” of top secret material was a punishable offense.
The use of a private server for government business, on its face, is a clear violation of the NDA agreement.
The NDA goes on to say — “I have been advised that the unauthorized disclosure, unauthorized retention, or negligent handling of SCI by me could cause irreparable injury to the United States or be used to advantage by foreign nationals.”
We, as a nation, are only left with two- and only two- options concerning Hillary’s crimes. Either she operated in a manner to intentionally weaken our national security or she transmitted the classified materials over an unsecured server unintentionally- a sign of not only negligence, but of gross negligence and supreme stupidity by the woman who now seeks a promotion to the highest office in the nation.
Forget weighing the ins-and-outs of her campaign; the real question should be: why isn’t Hillary Clinton awaiting trial?
