You're deluded. Senior officials deliberately leaking classified information against the public's interest for political or personal reasons is fairly common and nobody (except Scooter and Patraeus) gets investigated, let alone prosecuted. Adherence to those rules goes down as the govt. employee goes up the chain of command.Pinky wrote:It's far worse than anything Trump has done (so far). She was "extremely careless" with classified information simply because the rules that everyone else has to deal with were inconvenient for her Highness. The Federal government won't even give you access to confidential information without making it very clear (through repeated, boring training) that you can't do anything close to what she did. But she's Hillary Fucking Clinton, and she'll send classified information through insecure channels whenever (or wherever) she wants to. Anyone else would have (at least) had their clearance pulled.Grandpa's Spells wrote:That was a stupid thing to do.

I'm a little surprised we've had zero elected Republicans endorse Hillary.

Clinton's stupid behavior doesn't even rise to that. It's a case study on how easy it is to convince people that fairly common behavior can be reframed as criminal.
Again, I'm not justifying it, it's mildly scandalous. But people who think Hillary belongs in jail or is disqualified from office should be calling for for Cheney, Patraeus and Scooter to be executed.
Take any of the disqualifying statements the WP assigned to Trump and imagine Hillary said/did them.No Presidential candidate, including Trump, has ever done anything remotely similar (that we know of). She is unqualified in a way that is quite unique.
