Yep! There it is, right there on CNN, so it MUST be true, right?
“House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings said Thursday his committee has obtained new information that several senior White House officials have used personal email and messaging accounts to conduct government business, asserting that President Donald Trump’s son-in-law communicated with foreign leaders through a private messaging application that appears to lack adequate safeguards.” Source
Lol, er, um, no. Sorry Chairman Cummings, but that’s NOT the way the law works in these United States of America.
Yes, using one’s personal e-mail accounts for official use may be wrong. But it’s not always wrong, and in some specific instances, it’s allowed. In situations where it’s not permissible, it violates policy, not national security.
This is MASSIVELY DIFFERENT thing than Hillary’s keeping her own server in order to hide her ILLEGAL activities as Secretary of State, including both sending and receiving information classified as CONFIDENTIAL, SECRET, and TOP SECRET, then LYING about her GROSSLY ILLEGAL actions, and CONCEALING EVIDENCE of her CRIMES.
Seriously, CNN and Chairman Cummings: Who the hell do you think you’re trying to fool, here, anyway? Conservatives? Forget it. You might fool many Democrat voters, but the rest of us know better. For that matter, which one of you cooked up this cockamamy, hair-brained scheme? Was it CNN? Could it have been Chairman Cummings?
Hillary Clinton FLAGRANTLY and UNDENIABLY in violation of United States Code, 2006 Edition, Supplement 5, Title 18 – CRIMES AND CRIMINAL PROCEDURE
§ 2071. Concealment, removal, or mutilation generally
(a) Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or
deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned
not more than three years, or both.
(b) Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this
title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States.
In stark, raving contrast, White House Officials have NOT broken federal law.
Hillary Clinton, BY LAW, deserves three years in prison and disqualification from holding any office under the United States, and that just for attempting to cover up her illegal schemes. If we ever find out WHAT she was really trying to cover up, she could get 20 to LIFE.
Current White House Officials deserve a verbal admonishment, at worst, for breaking a rule, but nothing more, as they have not broken any laws.
