117. Here is the problem

The FBI agents working on the case believe they have a slam-dunk case against her. If an indictment is recommended, and the DOJ does not act, some will stand up and walk away. Some say Comey will resign. There is a Federal Grand Jury seated, and this is being treated as a criminal case.

Just the storage of classified information (marked or unmarked) in an unapproved, unprotected server is a crime. I am not talking about the intent, because as I am sure you know, everyone will speculate on different intents. I don't have the facts so I will not do that. Many ordinary people assume it was a matter of simply convenience. Others say it was a matter of non-disclosure of material stored there. So I am just going to wait and see what the Grand Jury and the Judge say. I do know the judge is upset because many FOIA requests to the State Department were returned with "We have no records..." Some of those requests were not just for example journalists but from lawyers and courts.

The whole issue is so incredibly complex.

But Hillary won't be impeached because she is not the President. A sitting President can only be impeached over "crimes" committed during his or her tenure in the Oval Office. The only question for her at this moment is will she be indicted, and if so what the ramifications of that will be. I personally think some heavy-duty negotiations will ensue to reach a deal. But that is just my opinion, I have no facts.
