FBI to Interview Hillary Clinton over Email Scandal

By Douglas V. Gibbs

Odds are that Hillary Clinton will get out of this treasonous email scandal unscathed.  At worse, they'll find some misdemeanor charge to make the opposition happy she got her hand slapped, and she'll pay a fine.

Nonetheless, federal prosecutors investigating the mishandling of classified materials on Hillary Clinton’s private email server are going into interview mode, and Hillary is in their crosshairs.

The Los Angeles Times reports that FBI interviews of Clinton, and other personnel, may be occurring soon.  “The interviews are critical to understand the volume of information they have accumulated,” said James McJunkin, former head of the FBI's Washington field office. “They are likely nearing the end of the investigation and the agents need to interview these people to put the information in context. They will then spend time aligning these statements with other information, emails, classified documents, etc., to determine whether there is a prosecutable case."

Hillary Clinton is guilty of treason, just as she was regarding her handling of Benghazi.  In the email scandal, access to her email account was given to the enemy, knowingly or willfully giving Muslim leaders access to classified information.

Clinton's private server was based at her home in New York, and the very idea that she had it, with classified information on it, shows Americans that she cannot be trusted to hold any office, much less President of the United States.

Senator Bernie Sanders has largely declined to use the email scandal against her in the Democratic primary, but the Republicans have had no problem discussing the issue, and suggesting that Clinton should be indicted or disqualified from running.

At a recent Democratic debate Clinton was asked what she would do if indicted. “That’s not going to happen,” she said.

She has not expectation of having any legal problems regarding this issue.  As far as Hillary Clinton is concerned, she's above the law, and the very idea that she is being investigated is laughable to her.

The State Department has released all 3,871 pages of Clinton’s emails in its possession and has determined that 22 of her emails contained "top secret" information, though they were not marked as such at the time. Hundreds of others contained material that was either secret or confidential, two lower levels of classification.

After stepping down as secretary of State, Clinton told her staff to delete 31,830 emails on the server that she felt were non-work-related.

In August, the FBI obtained the server and has since recovered most, if not all, of the deleted correspondence.

Federal prosecutors granted immunity to one of Clinton's aides, Bryan Pagliano, who helped set up the server in Clinton’s home. He has cooperated with the federal investigation and provided security logs that revealed no evidence of foreign hacking, according to a law enforcement official.

When foreign sources have the password, there would be no evidence of foreign hacking.
