Re: FBI Fails To Charge Sec. Clinton



Slightly more on topic thread closure...

People who leak to media outlets for the selfless purpose of informing
the public – Daniel Ellsberg, Tom Drake, Chelsea Manning, Edward
Snowden – face decades in prison. Those who leak for more ignoble and
self-serving ends... are usually spared if they are sufficiently
Important-in-DC.
But if there is to be anything positive that can come from this lowly
affair, perhaps [they] might start demanding the same reasonable
leniency and prosecutorial restraint for everyone else who isn’t
Hillary Clinton.
