Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s email scandal is back in the news once again, as the State Department has identified “multiple security incidents” involving by current and former staffers.
We have yet to see Clinton answer for the violations of federal law that connect to her failures in this particular scandal. We also haven’t seen her pay for her involvement in the Benghazi cover-up. It’s time for her to be held accountable for her actions. Will this latest discovery finally open the door to make it happen?
The Daily Wire is reporting:
At least 15 people were involved and there were 23 “violations” and seven “infractions” issued as part of the department’s ongoing investigation.
The State Department has been investigating Clinton’s email from the time she was Secretary of State during the Barack Obama administration. She deleted some 30,000 emails and scrubbed hard drives after she left the post, and subsequent probes have found that she mishandled classified material.
No names of Clinton staffers were released. In a letter to Sen. Charles Grassley, the Republican chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, the department said it “does not release the names of current or former employees participating in the security incident program.”
“However, in the spirit of cooperation, the Department can share with you certain information about the status of the ongoing review. To this point, the Department has assessed culpability to 15 individuals, some of whom were culpable in multiple security incidents. DS has issued 23 violations and 7 infractions incidents under 12 FAM 550. This number will likely change as the review progresses.”
The department claims they’ll be done with their probe by September 1.
The real question is whether or not Hillary will face real consequences for her actions, or if she’ll call in some more favors and end up getting off the hook once again. She seems to be rather good at that.
Surely the favor pool must be running dry, right? Regardless, it will be a serious miscarriage of justice if she is not held accountable for violating the law. We are supposed to be a nation of law, where everyone is under the law equally. This is a falsehood if Clinton is allowed to escape being punished for her illegal activity.
