Meet the Navy Reservist Charged With Unauthorized Retention of Classified information…”without intent”

Every day we are reminded that there are two sets of laws in America- one for us peons and one for the Clintons and their cronies. Such is the case of Bryan Nishimura, a naval reservist sentenced in July of 2015 for unauthorized removal and retention of classified information- without malicious intent.

DOJ Corruption?

According to the FBI, Nishimura plead guilty, whereupon U.S. Magistrate Judge Kendall J. Newman sentenced him to “two years of probation, a $7,500 fine, and forfeiture of personal media containing classified materials. He was further ordered to surrender any currently held security clearance and to never again seek such a clearance…

...The investigation did not reveal evidence that Nishimura intended to distribute classified information to unauthorized personnel.”

Nishimura was deployed to Afghanistan in 2007. He downloaded and brought home classified material, and later destroyed most of it. The FBI recovered numerous pieces of it when they investigated the case. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

No intent required for punishment

Let’s make this clear: the United States code that Hillary violated does NOT depend upon “intent” as proven by the case of Bryan  Nishimura.

Title 18, US Code, Section 793, subsection(f)

Whoever, being entrusted with or having lawful possession or control of any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch, photograph, photographic negative, blueprint, plan, map, model, instrument, appliance, note, or information, relating to the national defense, (1) through gross negligence permits the same to be removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of his trust, or to be lost, stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, or (2) having knowledge that the same has been illegally removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of its trust, or lost, or stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, and fails to make prompt report of such loss, theft, abstraction, or destruction to his superior officer— Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.

As FBI Director Comey laid out the elements of Hillary’s case yesterday, it was obvious that she had committed gross negligence with regard to handling sensitive classified material.  to not charge her, recommend she not be charged, and lay the final move on the Attorney General’s office is unconscionable.

Is Hillary Clinton too big to prosecute? Is she above the law so far that even the FBI can’t touch her?

Apparently.
