Hillary Clinton shouldn’t start popping the champagne cork just yet after getting off the hook for her negligent handling of classified information and illegally using a private, unsecured email server then lying about it all.
FBI Director Comey decided to not recommend criminal indictment of Hillary after laying out a case of how she broke the law over and over again and revealing her testimony and statements as lies, but the State Department is now resuming their own investigation now that the FBI is done.
Spokesman John Kirby says the emails probe is restarting now that the Justice Department isn’t pursuing a criminal prosecution. The State Department suspended its review in April to avoid interfering with the FBI’s inquiry.
Kirby set no deadline for the investigation’s completion.
Clinton was secretary of state until early 2013. Most of her top advisers left shortly thereafter.
But Kirby said this week former officials can still face “administrative sanctions.” The most serious is loss of security clearances, which could complicate Clinton’s naming of a national security team if she becomes president.
Administrative sanctions? Pantsuit should be looking at 10 years in federal prison. Where are the social justice warriors now?
