Hillary’s Indictment: More Suspense Than The Walking Dead Finale

Today’s episode of Hillary’s sordid tale of secret emails is that she reportedly stored information classified beyond Top-Secret. That’s the kind of stuff traitor Edward Snowden released: Need-to-Know, compartmentalized stuff.

They should create a Netflix series for Hillary’s emails. I’d call it “She Came in Through the Bathroom Window” (but I’m a Beatles fan); Hollywood would call it “No Smoking Gun.”

Fox News exclusively obtained the unclassified letter, sent Jan. 14 from Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III. It laid out the findings of a recent comprehensive review by intelligence agencies that identified “several dozen” additional classified emails — including specific intelligence known as “special access programs” (SAP).

That indicates a level of classification beyond even “top secret,” the label previously given to two emails found on her server, and brings even more scrutiny to the presidential candidate’s handling of the government’s closely held secrets.

Now, I might be mistaken here (I’m not a lawyer, or a federal prosecutor, maybe we should ask Chris Christie), but isn’t this a felony?

Yes, yes, it appears to be, says Google and Cornell University Law School.

18 U.S. Code § 798 – Disclosure of classified information

(a) Whoever knowingly and willfully communicates, furnishes, transmits, or otherwise makes available to an unauthorized person, or publishes, or uses in any manner prejudicial to the safety or interest of the United States or for the benefit of any foreign government to the detriment of the United States any classified information—

(b) As used in subsection (a) of this section—
The term “classified information” means information which, at the time of a violation of this section, is, for reasons of national security, specifically designated by a United States Government Agency for limited or restricted dissemination or distribution;

The terms “code,” “cipher,” and “cryptographic system” include in their meanings, in addition to their usual meanings, any method of secret writing and any mechanical or electrical device or method used for the purpose of disguising or concealing the contents, significance, or meanings of communications;

So, when will the Department of Justice issue indictments? The suspense is killing me.

(Something tells me Johnny Mathis’ “The Twelfth of Never” is playing on an iPod at the Hoover building.)
