New Acting Attorney General Wrote that it Would Be “Reasonable” to Indict Hillary

Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, who replaced fired former AG Jeff Sessions Thursday, has written that Hillary Clinton should be prosecuted for her crimes.

The most recent ones, I’m talking about.

Whitaker wrote the following in a July 2016 response to former FBI Director James Comey’s contention that “no reasonable prosecutor” would prosecute Hillary, his rationale for not recommending the indictment:

Of the emails either turned over or recovered by the FBI, 110 contained information that was classified at the time it was sent or received, of which eight email chains contained information that was top secret at the time it was sent.

The facts also show it was gross negligence when she removed the information from State Department security. Secretary Clinton made the decision to use a personal email system, one that had inferior security to the State Department’s or even another commercial vendor’s email service.

A reasonable prosecutor may ask, if on numerous occasions, an unknown State Department employee had taken top secret information from a secured system, emailed that information on a Gmail account, and stored the information on a personal server for years, would that individual be prosecuted? I believe they would.

Will he do it? Of course not. Everybody talks a good game, but then when they get in power in Washington, it becomes a completely different story.
