Hillary Clinton’s email scandal is continuing to be a major issue, not just in this presidential election, but in the future our how our government handles technology-related cases.
It’s clear that many of our leaders in Washington still don’t understand modern technology. Hillary Clinton’s illegal, private server shows at the very least a lack of understanding of basic security principles, or an outright dismissal of those principles.
Either way, she broke the law for convience sake.
Congress, headed by Rep. Trey Gowdy, has been going through the FBI investigation of former Secretary Clinton’s email server. They’ve found much to be worried about. Now the federal government is taking over the case.
And guess what FBI Director James Comey wanted?
From Right Wing News:
Looks like Trey Gowdy is reopening Hillary’s email scandal case. Right up front, FBI Director James Comey asked for immunity and Gowdy told him flatly, “Hell no!”
Classic Gowdy here… he questioned FBI Director Comey during the House Judiciary hearing entitled, Oversight of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. “What concerns me Director is when you have five immunity agreements and no prosecution… when you are allowing witnesses who happen to be lawyers sit in on an interview. That is not the FBI that I used to work with,” Gowdy said to Comey on Wednesday.
The DOJ granted immunity to five people who gave nothing in return… five people they knew were exceedingly complicit and corrupt. It was all rigged, setting these people above the law. Comey should be prosecuted for what he has done.
At the very least, the FBI investigation was botched. At the very worst, Comey and his staff intentionall rigged the case to protect Clinton and her staff.
This case goes beyond partisan politics. It will set a precedent on how future leaders handle such things as email and other technology. And it will establish how the government will handle situations where a leader–Secretary of State or otherwise–should be treated when they break the rules.
I’m guessing they won’t be offering too much immunity in the future.
