Hillary: Does that pantsuit come in stripes?

Hillary and Bernie yuck it up over these silly emails. (Getty Imagines)

Here are a couple of traits one seldom associates with someone of presidential timber — gross negligence and obstruction of justice.

Those are terms Fox News sources are using to describe what the FBI is looking into with regard to Hillary Clinton’s rather hapless handling to classified material.

The source specifies 18 USC 793 subsection F as being of concern. That section reads:

(f) Whoever, being entrusted with or having lawful possession or control of any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch, photograph, photographic negative, blueprint, plan, map, model, instrument, appliance, note, or information, relating to the national defense, (1) through gross negligence permits the same to be removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of his trust, or to be lost, stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, or (2) having knowledge that the same has been illegally removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of its trust, or lost, or stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, and fails to make prompt report of such loss, theft, abstraction, or destruction to his superior officer—  Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.

As for obstruction, the source told Fox: “If someone knows there is an ongoing investigation and takes action to impede an investigation, for example destruction of documents or threatening of witnesses, that could be a separate charge but still remain under a single case.”

Bernie Sanders may be tried of the damn emails and Hillary is tied of talking about them and Democrats want to move on, but the FBI has some serious questions that need to be answered, despite Obama’s nonchalant dismissal of the case.

“I don’t think it posed a national security problem. …” Mr. Obama said Sunday on CBS’s “60 Minutes.” “This is not a situation in which America’s national security was endangered.”

How would he know? Neither he nor Hillary could pass a background check to obtain a security clearance.

You can bet Obama’s politicized Justice Department will run interference and try to keep Hillary out of real legal trouble.

As The Wall Street Journal points out, others in the past have managed to plead down to a misdemeanor for mishandled classified material. Would that be enough to avoid too much of a taint for Hillary backers?

    good luck with this one, ‘fella!
    I know that the House Select Committee of Dig up Something, Anything, on Hillary is trying hard, but …

  2. Steve says:

    …. “trying hard, but …”…..

    The FBI will get to the bottom of it!

  3. giney newport says:

    If this murderous witch wins the nomination………I am going to sneak onto a banana boat, arrive in Cuba where I can hopefully find some help for passage to Russia. I would renounce my citizenship but I heard they charge you an arm and a leg to do that, and I don’t think there is much of a black market for selling your American identity these days.

  4. As usual with this administration and Hillary…politics ALWAYS comes first. The terrorist assault on the Benghazi outpost could have been the October surprise that began the unraveling of the Obama campaign mantra…”Osama Bin Laden is dead and Al Qaeda is on the run.” Enter Sidney Blumenthal, David Plouffe, Valerie Jarrett, David Axlerod, Tom Donilon and others to concoct the phony video trailer excuse…to get past the election. Ask the families of the four dead Americans to see how this President and Hillary honored their solemn promise to get to the bottom of it, hold those responsible accountable…and to inform them (the families) as to what had happened. They’re still waiting… (And the House Select Committee…is STILL waiting for all of the pertinent emails to be released to them as promised, including the deleted emails of Hillary Clinton!)

  5. The only hope for the truth…is for some honest, fearless FBI agents who are willing to buck the politicized Justice Department of this crooked, dismal administration…and let the chips fall where they may.

  6. Nyp says:

    “This murderous witch”

  7. Vernon Clayson says:

    Why weren’t her messages encrypted, hard to believe government agencies post messages in plain language. If they were encrypted who is deciphering them, one of her gang could say a message reported a she had a good bowel movemen during a long flight.

  8. Debra McGuire says:

    While Hillary trashes the Benghazi committee, which while deplowing old ground, to hear her tell it, led to the discovery of her private server and thousands of previously undisclosed emails, she is careful to avoid the subject of the FBI, which, last time I checked, was not in the grip of her enemies, the Republicans. That agency holds her fate. According to press reports, the agency had sought felony charges against Gen. David Petraeus for mishandling classified information to a far smaller degree than is suspected of Hillary. President Obama apparently ordered that those charges be reduced to a misdemeanor. If the FBI recommends felony charges against Hillary and Obama again interferes, don’t be surprised to see mass resignations among federal law enforcement.

  9. nyp says:

    Good luck with that!

    BTW – should the FBI recommend felony charges against the Trey Gowdy and the House Select Committee of Dig up Something, Anything, on Hillary for having revealed the name of that Libyan informer?

  10. Debra McGuire says:

    Actually, the State Department released that name and apologized Monday afternoon for having done so.

  11. nyp says:

    The Gowdy Committee publicly released the name of the Libyan source, not the State Department.

  12. “Today, Jamal Ware, a spokesman for committee Republicans, blamed the State Department for the apparent screwup. He said the department had “failed to redact” Koussa’s name from the subject line of the 2011 email, even though it was redacted elsewhere, before forwarding it to the committee.”

  13. Nyp says:

    They didn’t have to redact it. First, they didn’t release it publicly. They simply provided it to a Congressional investigative committee. They aren’t responsible for the fact that Gowdy chose to make the identity of the source public. Why did he decide to do that if the name was so sensitive?

    Second, the name of the source isn’t classified. It isn’t classified. It has been a matter of public record for years.

  14. Debra McGuire says:

    The reason the email is in question is that it is from Hillary Clinton’s private server, which was the repeated target of hacking attempts by, among other, Russia, China and Israel, according to published reports. You can’t have it both ways – argue that Gowdy released confidential information, and then argue that the State Department – and perhaps you are inferring, Hillary, didn’t do harm because the name has been public for years.

  15. Steve says:

    According to the State Department they are responsible, nyp. Perhaps you should call them and set them straight, huh?

  16. lol…(thanks Steve, I needed that!)

  17. nyp says:

    Debra: The information was not classified. Receiving an email from someone that mentioned that information was unremarkable. But if it was classified, Gowdy committed a far more serious breach of the law than Hillary could ever possibly have done. She did not make the name of the Libyan source public; Gowdy did. After all, he claimed that this information was “some of the most protected information in our intelligence community, the release of which could jeopardize not only national security but human lives.”
    Why did Gowdy and the Republicans decide to make this information public?

  18. Debra McGuire says:

    Again, you can’t have it both ways. If, as you say, the information is not classified, Gowdy did not breach the law. Hillary is suspected of exposing all sorts of classified information to America’s enemies by having it on a private and unsecured server – that is what the FBI is investigating. The guy defected to England two weeks after Hillary pal Blumie sent his name to Hillary on her unsecured server.

  19. Nyp says:

    Is the information that Gowdry made public classified, or not?

  20. Anonymous says:

    Why don’t you ask the State Department when you call them?

  21. Steve says:

    Good one anonymous, you beat me to it!

  22. Nyp says:

    No need. I know the answer.
    But what do you think? Was this “some of the most protected information in our intelligence community”? Or not?

  23. Steve says:

    So, it’s not whether it was protected information…..it’s all about politics.

    I will wait for the FBI to conclude their investigation.

  24. Nyp says:

    This is such weak beer.
    What about the death of Vincent Foster?

  25. Steve says:

    Get out of the under 21 bar.

    If she makes the general… all her baggage becomes fodder for the last minute voters.

    Now, THAT is single malt! yum.

  26. What about the Hillary aides who ransacked Foster’s office? Obstruction of justice?

  27. nyp says:

    There you go. I definitely think Trey Gowdry ought to spend a couple of years investigating that one.

    Too many unanswered questions.

  28. Guess Who? says:

    Why is it liberals have to be such twerps? Could it be because they can’t handle the truth?

    How do you do it, petey? Or are you on Plouffe boy’s payroll, and “it’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it?”

  29. nyp says:

    What I want to know is, when does ObamaCare destroy America?
    Or could it be that it already happened, and we just don’t know it?

  30. Guess Who? says:

    You can choose to ignore the fact that economically, fiscally, and morally the US is already bankrupt. Or you can do the Canadian thing and smoke weed while maxing out the credit cards (their next 3 year plan thanks to Justin Trudeau!)

    We are so screwed.

  31. Rincon says:

    Only the middle class is screwed (no raise in 50 years). The rich are in great shape, better than at any time in history. As I already pointed, the top 1% could pay off the entire debt and still have $24 million apiece left over.* .The problem isn’t that we can’t afford our government; the problem is that the middle class pays two sets of taxes: one to the government and another to the rich. Although not a tax per se, I term it such because in both cases, we have no choice but to pay the people with the power – and they, as a group, determine how much we pay.

    *Just to make it clear, I would not ask that the 1% pay the bill by themselves. It’s obviously cruel to ask someone to live on only $24 million. I am only pointing out that there’s lots of money that could be used to pay the debt. We just refuse to limit greed.
