National security law expert on Clinton email issue: "not uncommon" and legal charges very unlikely. [View all]

From Christian Science Monitor..

Stephen Vladeck, an American University law professor and national security law expert, said it would be a stretch, based on what's now known, to think Clinton could be charged under any existing statute for her behavior.

"This is an area where the government tends not to test the margins too often," Vladeck said.

It's not uncommon for workers with access to classified material to mishandle it, and by far the bulk of those cases don't attract the attention of federal prosecutors.

As I said many times before this is much ado about nothing. I know the Bernie supporters and the RWingers would love this to be a bigger story but it simply is not.
