Why Hillary Clinton Could Face Indictments and How This Makes Bernie Sanders Nominee

Why Hillary Clinton Could Face Indictments and How This Makes Bernie Sanders Nominee

It’s a crime under the Espionage Act to willingly, or inadvertently, transfer 22 Top Secret emails from secure State Department servers, to an unguarded private server. Clinton’s server was unencrypted for three months.

Under the Espionage Act, “gross negligence” is enough to prosecute, so intent isn’t needed when evaluating the harm done to national security from an unencrypted private server containing Top Secret emails. Simply claiming ignorance, or disinterest, or naiveté in using a private server isn’t enough to circumvent criminal indictments under the Espionage Act.

Therefore, the basis for imminent indictments rests upon the fact that neither the State Department, nor the president gave Clinton the authority to use a private server.

Hillary really betrayed Andrea Mitchell... The entire context of this report was of a solemn nature... A Funeral so to speak...

Andrea Mitchell "I do not see this report as ...ANYTHING BUT... DEVASTATING!"

Chuck Todd "After this I don't think that she could get confirmed for Attorney General!"

Lots of FIBBING by Hillary here.. for more than a year!

7. Actually, there is no set procedure for how a replacement is picked after the convention

It is up to the parties, and as far as I can tell the DNC doesn't really have a procedure laid out for replacing a nominee after he/she has been formally nominated. This wasn't an issue in 1968 because RFK was shot after locking up the nomination (there were no supers back then) but before actually being nominated.

27. Different states have different laws on this

In some states if a candidate dies their name stays on the ballot and then if they win a special election is held or an appointment is made. In some states a replacement can be picked quickly. In Minnesota in 2002 leaving Wellstone's name on the ballot was not an option, which sucked because he probably would have won posthumously. What was really unfair was that they counted the absentee ballots that went for Coleman, despite having a different opponent, but the absentee ballots that were cast for Wellstone did not count for Mondale.

They do better reporting then many major news companies. Take this for example, CNN didn't report on the occupyCNN protest that was happening outside their building, RT did (Yes, that's Russian Television), but from what I've seen they have a lot of integrity. Maybe there's a reason Larry King left CNN to work there?
