Really, more of a routine update than anything breaking-newsworthy:
The State [Commissariat] has released three thousand more pages of emails from former [Commissar] of State Hillary Clinton's private email account, missing a court-ordered goal for their production by a week.
The [commissariat] said Friday the documents include sixty five that contain information that has subsequently been deemed "confidential," the lowest classification. One document contained information determined to now be "secret," although it was not identified as such at the time it was sent.
Each one carries a maximum prison term of ten years, don't forget. And by this time, even tenthing that would still put the Empress away for centuries.
But the longer this drip-drip-drip goes on with nothing but crickets wafting from Loretta Lynch's direction, the more handwriting on the wall obvious it becomes that no justice will ever be done.
Not that some of us didn't know that from the beginning, but it's still somehow depressing to watch it unfold, and to be deprived of the curiosity-satisfying spectacle of whether Mrs. Clinton really would have a stroke if she were indicted.
I guess that's DOJ's excuse.
UPDATE: Beyond parody:
BTW, the total number of illegally-sent classified emails is up to 1,044. I hope Her Nib doesn't have any plans through the year 12546 AD, just in case.
UPDATE II: Looks like the old puffgut was conducting seminars on how to leak classified information in the clear:
However, one email thread from June 2011 appears to include [Mrs.] Clinton telling her top adviser Jake Sullivan to send secure information through unsecure means.
In response to [Mrs.] Clinton’s request for a set of since-redacted talking points, Sullivan writes, “They say they’ve had issues sending secure fax. They’re working on it.” [Mrs.] Clinton responds “If they can’t, turn into nonpaper [with] no identifying heading and send nonsecure.” [emphases added]
This isn't a smoking gun....
....it's a smoking cannon. It emblemizes the entire Emailgate scandal and Hillary Clinton's contempt for U.S. national security and the rule of law.
A refresher on 18 USC 793:
d) Whoever, lawfully having possession of, access to, control over, or being entrusted with any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch, photograph, photographic negative, blueprint, plan, map, model, instrument, appliance, or note relating to the national defense, or information relating to the national defense which information the possessor has reason to believe could be used to the injury of the United States or to the advantage of any foreign nation, willfully communicates, delivers, transmits or causes to be communicated, delivered, or transmitted or attempts to communicate, deliver, transmit or cause to be communicated, delivered or transmitted the same to any person not entitled to receive it, or willfully retains the same and fails to deliver it on demand to the officer or employee of the United States entitled to receive it; or
(e) Whoever having unauthorized possession of, access to, or control over any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch, photograph, photographic negative, blueprint, plan, map, model, instrument, appliance, or note relating to the national defense, or information relating to the national defense which information the possessor has reason to believe could be used to the injury of the United States or to the advantage of any foreign nation, willfully communicates, delivers, transmits or causes to be communicated, delivered, or transmitted, or attempts to communicate, deliver, transmit or cause to be communicated, delivered, or transmitted the same to any person not entitled to receive it, or willfully retains the same and fails to deliver it to the officer or employee of the United States entitled to receive it; or
(f) Whoever, being entrusted with or having lawful possession or control of any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch, photograph, photographic negative, blueprint, plan, map, model, instrument, appliance, note, or information, relating to the national defense,
(1) through gross negligence permits the same to be removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of his trust, or to be lost, stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, or
(2) having knowledge that the same has been illegally removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of its trust, or lost, or stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, and fails to make prompt report of such loss, theft, abstraction, or destruction to his superior officer—
Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.
This is going to get harder and harder for Loretta Lynch to ignore.
But I'm sure she's up to the task.
UPDATE III: If Double-L is up to that task, the FBI is set to "go ballistic":
The FBI and intelligence community "would go ballistic" if there's no indictment in the case of former [Commissar] of State Hillary Clinton's use of her private email server to conduct government business, former federal prosecutor Joseph diGenova tells Newsmax TV....
"This case is about the future of enforcement of classified information," diGenova declared. "[Mrs. Clinton] has gotten a pass up to this point on any accusation being made public. But those days are going to be short-lived."
DiGenova says he expects a "compelling case with unassailable evidence" proving [Mrs.] Clinton's use of private unencrypted devices "compromised inner documents and transmissions" – some of which were "top secret."
But it will be Obama administration-appointed Attorney-General Loretta Lynch who will make the decision on whether or not to bring an indictment, he notes.
"And if the attorney-general were to decide that there would not be an indictment, I can assure you that the FBI and the intelligence community would go ballistic," he declared.
The only reason she would not prosecute, he asserts, "will be political."
"I don't believe she can do that under the law and if she does turn it down, [FBI Director James] Comey and the bureau and the director of Central Intelligence and [the National Security Agency] will do some incredible leaking that will burn your ears," he said. [emphasis added]
And then they'll all be fired in the biggest purge in American natsec history....or maybe they won't have to go ballistic because the Obama Regime, never forgetting how much The One hates La Clinton Nostra, will quietly indict Mrs. Clinton and drive a stake through her presidential dreams once and for all. Note the timing - "in the next two to three months" - that's plenty of time for Bernie Sanders to firmly take the baton and staggeringly walker his way to Philadelphia next summer and then on to miserable defeat at the hands of any Republican, or to thrilling victory over Donald Trump. Or, more likely than either, to baking an excuse to cancel the 2016 election by executive order and decree himself a third term.
I'm telling you, folks, this is going to be one cataclysmic year, mark my words.
UPDATE IV: The best defense La Clinton Nostra can come up with:
Bland, autistic, oblivious denial. Lying on autopilot. Hell, there really isn't even anything to parse here. Talk about, well, emailing it in. Sheesh.
