Oh, My: Hillary Claims She Never Realized "(C)" Indicated (C)lassified Information; Claims She Thought (C) Only Indicated Alphabetical Order

Impeach James Comey

For the sake of the nation, to preserve the Rule of Law, the corrupt crony-protecting cover-up apparatchik James Comey must be impeached. Even if he cannot be removed from office, his reputation should be blackened forever with an impeachment from the House.

First: James Comey knows full well that the "I didn't know breaking the law was illegal" defense is most often bullshit, and even where it is not bullshit, ignorance of the law is no defense.

He has prosecuted CEO's, I'm sure, for failing to make legally-required disclosures, and I'm sure those CEO's offered up the Clinton Special defense: "We didn't knowingly know what we doingly did."

He has, I'm sure, made judgment calls about how plausible such self-interested self-exculpatory excuses were.

If a CEO, who is sophisticated as to both finance and the laws regarding finance, claims he does not know something elemental -- something a total naif and outsider to the field would know -- I'm sure James Comey has deemed such a claim implausible and not declined to prosecute based soley on such a self-created Defense of Implausible Ignorance.

Does James Comey believe it's plausible that the CEO of the State Department did not know that "NOFORN" meant "NO FOReigN exposure"? Or that "(C)" means classified?

And she's claiming she can't remember the details of her security briefings, which covered all this, because of a convenient patch of brain damage which arrives to grant her an alibi but then departs in time to permit her to be Commander in Chief?

That is not plausible. That is a clear lie.

And yet James Comey falsely testified to Congress that there was "no indication" that Clinton had lied in her interviews.

Second: The safekeeping of foreign intelligence is so critical to this nation's security that the law itself specifically removes the "I didn't know the most basic things about the law" defense. That's the whole point of the charge only requiring a showing of negligence in handling secret information -- not intent.

The law forbids such a defense -- by not requiring the government to prove intent -- because it is so easy to claim "Oh I didn't know," and concommitantly so hard for the government to prove the contrary

If someone is testifying, essentially, that they are an ignorant careless individual who is shit at reading the basic employee handbook for his job, how do you disprove that?

Congress therefore specifically made the charge provable without proof of intent -- it only requires mere negligence.

But James Comey, to finagel a Get Out of Jail Free card for Mrs. Clinton, read such a demand into the law anyway, on his own alleged authority.

And furthermore, this most be read alongside the first point made above: He not only claimed the law required intent, but then he gave credence to Hillary Clinton's utterly implausible "I didn't know I couldn't just fling SAP intelligence around like I'm sending Cat Gifs through my email" as sufficient evidence to prove her lack of intent.

James Comey must be impeached.

America will not survive Congress' failure to punish such an obviously corrupt individual for failing in his most basic and most important function -- patrolling govermnent officials for corruption and safeguarding America's secrets.

The FBI is, after all, the nation's counter-intelligence service, the service charged (more than any other) with protecting American secrets from foreign pilferage.

If he gives a Secretary of State license to flout the law for her own self-serving interests of keeping her emails about her Foundation, speaking gigs, and other sundry forms of bribery from a public with the right to specifically know such things, then he is unfit to hold any position of trust in the American government, and completely unfit to lead the FBI.

Oh, the Ruling Junta will get away with this. Don't kid yourself -- those who Rule over you do not permit themselves to be put in jail.

But they shouldn't be permitted to get away with this cleanly.

James Comey and his minions must be forced to testify, under oath, whether they believe this "I didn't know breaking the law is illegal" is a valid defense for the average corporate CEO, or if this is just a special favor to the apparently Brain Damaged Smartest Woman in the World.

(C)orrection: A commenter who seems to know the ins and outs of clasification tells me "C" is a type of classification, but it does not stand for classified -- it stands for (C)onfidential, the lowest level of classification.

So while (C) means classified, it does not stand for classified, as I claimed. It stands for (C)onfidential.

I apologize for the frequently-made error.

But it's not my fault.

See, I had brain damage when I was writing these posts.

But I'm all better now, and ready to take a job as Director of the CIA's Clandestine Service.
