Why they are still free is a mystery. They are two of the key figures in the attempted coup against a sitting US President. As is Hillary Clinton, Tom Perez and the DNC, Comey, Strzok, B. Ohr, N. Ohr, Rosenstein, McCabe, Obama, S. Rice, Yates, and a host of others.
Section 798, 18 U.S. Code is absolutely the most easily understood as written law in the United States. It concerns the handling of “classified” material. ANY classified material. ALL classified material.
Unlike most U.S. laws, this is a considered a “simple liability” law. All that matters is whether or not you wrongly stored and/or transmitted, etc. “classified” material.
Your motivation doesn’t matter. The context you provide it in doesn’t matter. Your identity doesn’t matter. If you violate the law, then you are guilty, and should be punished accordingly, well unless you are Hillary Clinton that is.
Section 798, 18 U.S. Code:
(a) Whoever knowingly and willfully communicates, furnishes, transmits, or otherwise makes available to an unauthorized person, . . . any classified information—
(1) concerning the nature, preparation, or use of any code, cipher, or cryptographic system of the United States or any foreign government; or
(2) concerning the design, construction, use, maintenance, or repair of any device, apparatus, or appliance used or prepared or planned for use by the United States …or
(3) concerning the communication intelligence activities of the United States or any foreign government; or
(4) obtained by the processes of communication intelligence . . .
Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.
I do not see an exemption to this law for Hillary, Clapper or Brennan anywhere in the USC, yet 2+ years later they are still walking around free.
Hillary’s crimes are well document and well known as are Clapper’s and Brennan’s. C&B gave classified information to friends at the NYT and WaPo. James Comey also gave classified info to the media.
Yet, even though they all broke a cardinal rule that nobody else has ever NOT been held accountable to, they are untouchable, and laughing about it.
