Hillary Clinton emails: U.S. intelligence preparing for massive breach of classified data – Washington Times

The U.S. intelligence community is bracing for the possibility that former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s private email account contains hundreds of revelations of classified information from spy agencies and is taking steps to contain any damage to national security, according to documents and interviews Thursday.

The top lawmakers on the House and Senate intelligence committee have been notified in recent days that the extent of classified information on Mrs. Clinton’s private email server was likely far more extensive than the four emails publicly acknowledged last week as containing some sensitive spy agency secrets.

Hillary Clinton brazenly and deliberately used a private, unsecure email system to unconstitutionally avoid congressional oversight of her actions as Secretary of State, knowing full well that it would compromise classified information.

News today comes that her attorney is in possession of a thumb drive with an archive of her emails (though it is unclear what format that archive is in).  That means he is unlawfully in possession of classified information.

“In most situations like this you’d expect that a warrant would be issued and that the Marshals and the feds — FBI, somebody would go and get that thumb drive and take it somewhere where it would be considered safe by the government,” said Edward MacMahon Jr., an attorney who has handled major national security cases including the leak investigation of former CIA officer Jeffrey Sterling. 

Under 18 USC 1924, the unlawful removal and storage of classified information is described as when a person “knowingly removes such documents or materials without authority and with the intent to retain such documents or materials at an unauthorized location.” The law sets punishment of a fine or prison term of “not more than one year.”

That Mr. Kendall and especially Mrs. Clinton have not been served with search warrants (hell, arrest warrants!) tells you everything you need to know about the fecklessness of the entire federal government under the Obama regime. The law simply does not apply to them. They are not only above the law, they are above any pretense to adherence to the law.

    1. And Fox News!!! You bet. Literally the only news sources I can rely on to tell the truth.

  1. We’ve had our Marius, we almost have a Sulla … it’s not as long a way to Caligula as it once was.

    1. Marius was a popular leader whom Rome allowed to break the law because he was popular, and “it’s just this once.” FDR and Clinton both qualify. (Of course, neither was a popular general, but we don’t require our politicians to have military experience, however nominal, any more)

      Sulla, okay, nobody’s proscribed his enemies and kept the loot, yet. But I’d describe Sulla as a guy who wasn’t as popular as Marius, but used the precedent established by Marius to break any law he damn well pleased.

      Which is Obama.

      As for Caligula, he’d be the one who finally, finally broke the Roman habit of obedience and got his bodyguards to kill him. We’re a ways from that yet, I think. But note that once the military decided that yes, they could kill the emperor, they got used to the idea permanently.

      But our military isn’t like Rome in some ways, so that may not happen.

    2. Sulla was a conservative who rolled back the laws created by the demagogues like Marius. We haven’t had anyone like that. We need someone like that.

      Obama is no Sulla. He is an anti-Sulla, not just because he is a demagogue who has no interest in tradition or restoring the prerogatives of the traditional ruling elite, but because Obama’s motto is “no worse friend, no better enemy”.

  2. FDR is a better analogy for Marius but still not perfect. The closest part of the analogy is that both were allowed to hold an office an unprecedented number of times “because military emergency”.
