    I have no problem with Hillary not going to jail - it would be cruel and unusual punishment for her cellmate.







    Seriously, I don't care - this is such old news.
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    MSNBC analyst: People have gone to jail over what Clinton did with email
    by Becket Adams
    January 29, 2016 08:07 PM

    An MSNBC legal analyst noted Friday afternoon that the Obama administration has prosecuted people for mishandling of classified information similarly to how former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may have, as news broke that the State Department found 22 emails containing top-secret information on Clinton's private server.

    "People do go to jail for mishandling classified information," Ari Melber said. "They have been prosecuted in the Obama administration for that."

    The Washington Examiner didn't do any reporting here. They're leaching from another media source, MSNBC, and not even directly. From the hat tip, it's taken from another leach, the Washington Free Beacon:

    MSNBC on Clinton: Obama Admin Has Sent People to Jail for Mishandling Classified Information

    From there, Mr. Adams revised the headline to amp up the fringe bait, copied the Youtube link from the WFB, paraphrased, googled up a tweet from Hillary's PR puke and linked it, then hit post.

    Notice immediately that the headline has been modified, and indeed that the revision, "what Clinton did with email," isn't supported in the text of the Examiner article, in the WFB article attached to the headline, or indeed, in the MSNBC interview, in which the legal analyst follows up immediately with a statement that "no one has any evidence that Hillary was the originator of any of the material that gets that legal level," and that Hillary's people claimed at the time now backed up by the o/p that she was never more than the recipient, or something close to that.

    So what comes from backtracking the article is a talking head saying mishandling classified information has been prosecuted, which is true, not that Hillary's mishandling has been prosecuted when done by others, which, according to Comey's presser, was not the case.


    This is not journalism. It's not even work. There's no effort here. Mr. Adams isn't trying to inform. He's watching his google alerts, leaching another leach, second-hand twisting mainstream truth into a fringe lie, creating propaganda by definition, and low quality at that.

    As fringe propaganda, even MM's stuff is better than this.


    This isn't acceptable, preacher. Lots of folks doing this I'd pass right on by, but you know better. I've seen you look cross-eyed at sources, even more mainstream conservative voices, like the WSJ, for instance, if only from years back. Can't remember seeing you do so recently, though. Posting this stuff as if you were taking it seriously and who knows, maybe you are, but I won't believe it without a full confession makes me think you're just trolling.

    To which I say, there's enough and more than enough partisan hacks cluttering the web with half-truths. They don't need the help of Baptist preachers.


    Or in another, better sense, maybe they do.
    My impression as well. The article is full of "seemingly" and "apparently" and all sorts of other CYA language so he can claim "I never said she did X, I just said it seemed like she did X." The article is fodder for the indoctrinated - and nothing more. It doesn't even TRY to cite sources.

    I tend to be one of the few that thinks that a person who is torn down one page one above the fold should have the correction/exoneration circulated in the same way. Call me old fashioned...

    Actually - it appears it the DOJ and State Department that are apparently "protecting" Clinton. Seems a bit of a stretch to think that those departments under an opposition administration would exonerate Clinton if there was no basis for the exoneration. I don't need to "protect" Clinton, or acknowledge an error, because I ever falsely accused her. I elected to let the legal system run its course and wait for their conclusion, not considering myself more "in the know" than those with access to the first-hand evidence.

    I was simply struck by the distinction between how the accusations were reported in 2015/2016 and how the conclusion is being reported now. It frankly comes as no surprise that no one (yet) on the right seems willing to say, "maybe she was given a raw deal and falsely accused."

    In a perfect world, judges wouldn't be "Republican" or "Democrat." They would simply assess and apply the laws. I am with Roberts and Ginsburg on this one - once we lose confidence in our judiciary...we are beginning to rip down this grand experiment we undertook 243 years ago.

    I just realized there is one thing to be glad of - Mr. Trump cannot be in office for the 250th anniversary celebration! Hopefully, he won't be in office for the 245th either.

    From the report,

    Should the Department become aware in the future of any additional classified emails sent through former Secretary Clinton's server, the Department will likewise follow appropriate procedures


    This is just the beginning.
    Trump is basically "Bruce Wayne pretending to be a foppish retarded billionaire" tier genius, in case nerds need a simpler metaphor.
