Meet the 'Little People': Those Punished for Far Less Than What Clinton
Did

Several people have been punished for a similar or lesser offense than
what Hillary Clinton is getting away with - being "extremely careless" in
handling "very sensitive, highly classified information," as FBI Director
James Comey has said.

In announcing that the FBI will not recommend charges in the Clinton email
scandal, Comey appeared to suggest that if someone other than the
Democratic presidential nominee mishandles classified information, that
person would be punished.

"To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances a
person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences," he
conceded. "To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to
security or administrative sanctions."
Comey noted:

Although there is evidence of potential violation of the statutes
regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no
reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.

He argued that there was no recent precedent for bringing a criminal case
against Clinton without evidence of willful intent or gross negligence.

The Political Insider provides 10 examples of people who have been
punished for a similar or lesser offense than what Clinton did:

Bill Clinton's National Security Adviser guilty of Destroying
Documents in National Archives: 'Sandy Berger ... pleaded guilty in 2005
to illegally sneaking classified documents from the National Archives by
stuffing papers in his suit. He later destroyed some of them in his office
and lied about it.'

State Department Official Fired and Security Clearance Revoked After
Linking to Classified Wikileaks Document: Peter Van Buren, a foreign
service officer for Hillary's State Department, was fired and his security
clearance revoked for quoting a Wikileaks document AFTER publishing a book
critical of Clinton...

Bill Clinton's CIA Director Was Pardoned During Plea Negotiations for
Storing Classified Data on Home Computer: John Deutch, CIA director under
President Clinton, was found to have classified information on a
government-owned computer in his home several days after he left the CIA.
He had to be pardoned in the middle of plea negotiations by Hillary's
husband.

Navy engineer sentenced for mishandling classified material: Bryan
Nishimura of Folsom, California, plead guilty to the unauthorized removal
and retention of classified materials during stints in Afghanistan in 2007
and 2008...Nishimura was sentenced to two years probation, fined $7,500,
and had to surrender his security clearance.

Sailor Smuggles Classified Docs off Ship: 'A Navy intelligence
specialist admitted Thursday that he smuggled classified documents out of
Fort Bragg in folders and his pants pockets, then sold them for $11,500 to
a man he believed was a Chinese agent.'

Low Level Submarine Shipmate Prosecuted for Less Serious Crime than
Clinton: Petty Officer First Class Kristian Saucier allegedly used a
cellphone camera to take photos in the classified engine room of the
nuclear submarine where he worked as a mechanic, the USS Alexandria, then
destroyed a laptop, camera and memory card after learning he was under
investigation. He was indicted on one felony count of unlawful retention
of national defense information and another felony count of obstruction of
justice.

Marine Corps. Major Caught Sending Classified Documents to Superiors
Using Personal Email: Maj. Jason Brezler was dismissed from the Marine
Corps when he 'accidentally took home 14 documents on his personal
computer, some of which were classified.' According to the report, Brezler
was 'in a graduate school class when he received an urgent email from
military officials in Afghanistan and sent a specific document in
response, using his personal email account.'

Lab Tech Steals Data from Nuclear Facility: Jessica Lynn Quintana, a
former worker at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, pleaded guilty in
federal court to 'knowingly removing classified information from the
national security research laboratory, after she took home sensitive
documents and data from the lab last year.'

NSA Manager gives Classified Info to Newspaper: A National Security
Agency manager was indicted on allegations of willful retention of
'national defense' or classified information, obstruction of justice and
making a false statement, after he allegedly 'passed classified
information to a Baltimore Sun reporter who wrote stories exposing NSA
mismanagement.' Charges were dropped and the NSA manager pleaded to a
misdemeanor, in what was called a victory against the Obama administration
whom had attempted to use dated laws to prosecute leakers of classified
information...

State Dept. Official Steals Classified Docs: Donald Willis Keyser
earned over a year in prison when he 'plead guilty to a three-count
Criminal Information in which he admitted that he willfully and unlawfully
removed classified documents and digital memory devices from the
Department of State to his residence.' United States Attorney Chuck
Rosenberg stated that... 'His (Keyser's) sentence of imprisonment is a
warning to others in positions of public trust.'

STILL can't understand why liberal Democrats are so in love with Muslims.
Muslims are against abortion, contraception, pre-marital sex, they kill
homosexuals BY LAW and they treat women as slaves and chattel. Their old
men rape little boys and get away with it... oh, and they HATE you. Am I
leaving anything else out that you just LOVE about them?

Only by the wildest stretch of the imagination could that be described
as equal, much less a lesser offense. He was not carelessly storing
documents. He was stealing them to destroy them. Nor could he plead
any kind of lack of understanding of the nature of what he was doing.

The truth is of course that Clinton did do something for which
administrative punishment would be appropriate. But you can't fire
someone who already doesn't work for you.

Bullshit... Clinton DESTROYED 30,000 documents, INCLUDING State Department
documents on Benghazi.

Still believe they were just emails about weddings and "yoga".

God, you fucking liberals are incredibly stupid and able to be
brainwashed.

I'd end my life today, if I was so easily swayed and gullible, IOWs,
stupid, as you fucktards are.

Some of Hillary Clinton's Deleted "Yoga" Emails Also About Benghazi
By Andrew Stiles | 3:57 pm, August 30, 2016

Among the thousands of emails recovered during the FBI investigation into
Hillary Clinton's private server were 30 emails involving the 2012
terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris
Stevens and three other Americans.

ONE destroyed State Department document on Benghazi is a punishable
(jailable) offense.

Obama administration lawyers told a U.S. district court judge Tuesday that
some of those Benghazi-related email were not previously turned over to
the State Department for review (ANOTHER jailable offense).

Stop it. If any of the e-mails she deleted were pertinent to her
conduct as secretary of state, and if what she deleted were the only
extant copies, then what she did is *exactly* equivalent to stealing
from the National Archives and destroying them. I'm not claiming she
did, but you are claiming - with no valid grounds - that she didn't.
