A Little Dab at Clinton.com

Hopefully, a little dab will do ya.

New emails from Judicial Watch shed more light on the Benghazi incident and the foreign payments to the Clinton Foundation. The Hillary Clinton State Dept. seemed to be acting as Bill Clinton's procurement center. It seems like everybody want to know:  James Comey is going to have to make a decision on Hillary Clinton soon. Yeah; by now he must really know if the misdeeds rise to a criminal level, and whether the Justice Dept. will be willing to burn the political capital necessary to make a tough call to prosecute the front runner from the President's party for criminal acts during the election year. Former NY Times Editor Jill Abramson hasn’t been following the Hillary email story. She seems to think it doesn't count if the secrets weren't marked in the emails and had to be classified later. However, many were clearly derived from classified sources, and had the markings filed off. The AP seems to think the fix is in: Experts See Little Chance of Charges in Clinton Email Case:
"One has to put this in perspective of what types of prosecutions have happened under the Espionage Act," said Jon Michaels, a national security law professor at UCLA. "And the universe of prosecutions under the Espionage Act is quite small compared to the amount of information transferred through non-secure means."

Brad Moss, a Washington lawyer who deals regularly with security clearance matters, said the Justice Department could conceivably look to bring charges in the Clinton email case but prosecutors would have to decide if they "really want to take that gamble." Inquiries into mishandling of classified information generally end with a security clearance revocation rather than a criminal charge, he said.
Is this the Justice Department setting the precedent? Justice Department declines to prosecute former U.S. diplomat
The Justice Department is declining to prosecute a former high-ranking U.S. diplomat who was investigated by the FBI on suspicion of providing secrets to the Pakistani government, according to U.S. law enforcement officials.

The diplomat, Robin L. Raphel, was at the center of a counterintelligence investigation, which became public after agents raided her Washington home in 2014.

FBI agents found classified information in the search, but the materials were many years old, according to former U.S. law enforcement officials familiar with the investigation. The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the matter.
But, does Bill want her to be indicted? Bill Clinton slams ‘awful legacy of last 8 years’

Hillary Clinton Proclaims Our Border Is Secure
Was Hillary Clinton a stand-up comic in another life? She told an Arizona radio station in an interview that our southwest border was "secure" because "net illegal immigration" had been cut to zero.

In an interview with KTAR radio in Phoenix, Mrs. Clinton said improvements under President George W. Bush and President Obama, including several hundred miles of fencing, have cut net illegal immigration from Mexico to zero.
“Now I think it’s time to turn our attention to comprehensive immigration reform,” she said, using the term immigrant rights advocates use for legislation to legalize the 11 million illegal immigrants now in the country.
 Is a door closed because as many people go into it as out of it?

Poor, poor Lena: Lena Dunham Says She’s Received ‘More Hostility’ for Backing Clinton Over Sanders
“I have received more hostility for voting for a qualified female candidate than I have ever received anywhere from the American right wing,” she said at a Clinton campaign event at NeueHouse in Hollywood.

“The fact that other members of the Democratic Party have spoken to me like I was an ill informed child for voting for someone who represents everything I think this country should be is outrageous.”
That's because the American right wing as a certain level of respect for the rights of people to hold stupid ideas contrary to their own.
