Donald Trump makes a very wise comment today: that IF Russia or China or any country has Hillary Clinton’s deleted emails, he would like to see them. What results from this? Fabricating, nut-job statements from Democrats, calling Trump treasonous. Trump didn’t say that he wanted some foreign country to obtain her emails; he simply said that IF they already them, he would like to see them. Wouldn’t it be a great president who was able to persuade difficult nations to turn over Hillary’s “lost emails” if they had them?
Surprise: I don’t think Hillary Clinton should be prosecuted for any matters related to her email scandal. The federal statutes governing this type of activity are ambiguous and they should not have been used to prosecute General David Petraeus and others, as well. FBI Director James Comey was correct in saying that such prosecutions should not be based upon the gross negligence of a person. Criminal laws should only be used against those who act with purposeful intent. At minimum, where they have acted recklessly, such as in cases of manslaughter. Negligence, on the other hand, is the state of mind to be used in civil cases, not criminal. The punishment for Hillary Clinton, flowing from the use of her private email for sensitive, top secret documents, should be the U.S. voters not voting for her—because she has terrible judgment and thinks that the rules don’t apply to her. However, she should not be sent to jail for these negligent acts.
I’m too tired to write anything further. I’m old.
