For an oppressed minority, Obama sure identifies with the ruling class when it comes to fair play. He goes after the lower-level "help" when there is a violation of security but he gets lazy and lets the ruling class go Scott-free. Since he entered the White House in 2009, his government has waged a war against whistleblowers and official leakers. On his watch, there have been eight prosecutions under the 1917 Espionage Act – more than double those under all previous presidents combined.
And yet other apparent leaks have gone entirely unpunished or have been treated, as in the case of General David Petraeus, as misdemeanors. As Abbe Lowell, lawyer for one of the Espionage Act eight, Stephen Kim, has argued in a letter to the Department of Justice, low-level officials who lack the political connections to fight back have had the book thrown at them, while high-level figures have been allowed to leak with “virtual impunity”.
Now it's getting Hillarious
While President Obama acknowledged Hillary Clinton had shown a degree of "carelessness" in managing her emails while heading the State Department, what's the big deal, right, folks?
"I continue to believe that she has not jeopardized America's national security," the president told Fox News Sunday in an interview. But, he added, "what I've also said is that -- and she has acknowledged -- that there's a carelessness, in terms of managing e-mails, that she has owned, and she recognizes."
"But I also think it is important to keep this in perspective,” Obama said. “This is somebody who has served her country for four years as secretary of state, and did an outstanding job."
Yeah, who needs the FBI anyway. Obama has ruled.
What's that? Top Secret stuff?
The use of a private email server by the former secretary of state is currently under investigation by the FBI. Earlier this year, the State Department said it had found 22 emails on Clinton's home server that had to be upgraded to "Top Secret," the highest level of classification. Those top secret documents were withheld from being publicly released along with the rest of her emails.
But like the Mafia, crimes don't matter if you are a member of the crime family. Like the Mafia, Clinton and Obama kill people for a living. Got to give Obama his due, in that Hillary has done an OUTSTANDING job.
