Veteran FBI Agent’s Bombshell: Hillary Could Be Going To Jail For 10 Years
by Kevin Whitson, Western Journalism As the investigation into the “gross negligence” of Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified material continues, one anonymous FBI agent says she could be facing 10 years in jail under the Espionage Act. The Act, according to the FBI agent, requires one who discovers the negligence to inform superiors. In the case of the alleged mishandling of classified documents and emails, Clinton would have needed to inform her only superior, the president, and he stated last week that he was not informed.

According to the Daily Mail, “Obama said flatly during a ‘60 Minutes‘ interview on Sunday that ‘No,’ he did not know Clinton sidestepped security protocols with her a home-brew email setup while she was his secretary of state.” Under conditions of anonymity, the FBI agent stated, “If investigators conclude that the former secretary [Clinton] was criminally careless in how she approached the security of the sensitive documents in her possession, then this part of the law could be used to prosecute her.”

According to the FBI agent, the investigation being conducted by the bureau centers on whether or not she violated the laws within the Espionage Act, specifically, “18 U.S. Code § 793 – Gathering, transmitting or losing defense information.” The law applies to “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’ – even if it’s not considered classified.”
If Clinton knew that she was in violation of the Espionage Act, she was to have notified Obama immediately; and according to Obama, she did not inform the president. Of course, Obama could use his presidential pardon to keep the former First Lady out of jail, but Obama has historically not used his presidential pardon to relieve politicians of alleged wrongdoing. Obama’s use of the presidential pardon pales in comparison to his use of executive orders. In fact, according to The Nation, “While in the White House, Bill Clinton pardoned well over 100 people. So did President Bush. To date, Obama has pardoned less than two dozen and commuted even fewer sentences.” In contrast to Obama’s lighter total of presidential pardons, he has used executive orders 221 times. In light of Obama’s supposed hesitancy to use presidential pardon, it seems likely that Obama will not bail her out with his pen this time.

Do you think Obama should use his presidential pardon to forgive Clinton of violating the Espionage Act?
