    Hillary Clinton could still face charges, experts say

    Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information is getting another look with the release Thursday of a Justice Department inspector general report scrutinizing the FBI's investigation into whether she committed crimes using a private email server as secretary of state.

    Although it would be controversial, the Justice Department is able to reopen the Clinton email case, and experts say President Trump's 2016 adversary arguably could be charged until March 2025 — after Trump would leave office even if he wins a second term.


    Sloppy workers, leakers, whistleblowers, and spies face a variety of criminal charges for mishandling classified records. But there are leading options available to prosecutors, with varying statutes of limitations.




    One law, 18 U.S. Code § 1924, forbids “unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents or material.” It carries up to five years in prison, with a five-year statute of limitations. Former CIA contractor Reynaldo Regis pleaded guilty in May to violating the law by taking home about 60 notebooks with classified information. There's no allegation he shared them.


    Former CIA Director David Petraeus also pleaded guilty under this law in 2015 after sharing highly classified information with his mistress and biographer.


    But prosecutors favor the more severe 18 U.S. Code § 793, which is part of the notoriously tough Espionage Act. The law restricts possession or retention of information “relating to the national defense" and carries a possible 10 years in prison, with a 10-year statute of limitations.

    If they manage to impeach Trump, none of these charges will see the light of day.

    Huh? Clinton's handling of classified information and the phony investigation of that doesn't have anything to do with Trump being elected.

    First, who are "they"?
    Second, how would "they" go about impeaching President Trump?
    Third, even if President Trump was successfully impeached what do you believe would occur in the trial?
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    You know impeachment doesn't remove a President.
    Democrats are a clear and present danger to our democracy and our society.

    Comey didn't care at all if he hurt Clinton ... Comey was curled up in a corner hoping he wasn't seen and interpreted as helping her.


    This caused Trumpf to win ... then fired by Trumpf after he helped Trumpf win.

    I don't know what it is going to take before some people finally reach the conclusion that the Clinton's are above the law. She is not going to face any charges for anything. Ever.
