Pull Clinton’s clearance

Distracted, confused or diverted? That is what FBI Director James Comey is hoping for. But we’re not that ignorant or stupid – are we?

Did Hillary Clinton commit a felony? We know that ignorance of the law, or lack of intent, does not let you off the hook. If you are legally drunk and strike someone with your vehicle, you have committed a felony. And Comey made it clear that there was an insurmountable mountain of proof of Clinton’s “gross negligence” of “very sensitive, highly classified information.” In other words, the gross mishandling of classified information regarding our national defense. This would be a crime for anyone else. But, he let her off the hook because he found lack of clear proof of intent.

I invite you to read an article in the Seattle Times by criminal lawyer George Parry, “If Hillary didn’t mishandle classified information, no one can.” And then contact your congresssman and urge them to support a bill by Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) to strip Hillary Clinton of her security clearance.

“When individuals mishandle our country’s most sensitive information they jeopardize national security and shouldn’t be trusted with such an important responsibility,” Cornyn said in a press release.
