Hillary Has THREE Strikes — So Why Isn’t She Out Yet?

The FBI Director, the President, and the Attorney General may not find grounds to indict Hillary Clinton over her gross misconduct in the email scandal, but most Americans find her incompetent or guilty of criminal activity.

The FBI Director admitted July 7, in sworn testimony before a congressional committee, that Clinton was negligent. Still, he finds no reason to recommend prosecution because he finds no criminal intent, agreeing with Clinton she merely made mistakes. It is virtually impossible to believe a person with her experience at the executive level would be ignorant about prohibitions against using private email in the handling of highly classified materials involving national security. It is likewise virtually impossible to believe she had no knowledge that classified materials was put at risk and thus the national security of this country was compromised. Therefore, it is also impossible to understand she is beyond accountability.

Anyone who mishandles classified material, who carelessly and recklessly does so, as Secretary of State, thus putting our country in harm’s way, and putting intelligence agents at risk, is thoroughly disqualified for public office, especially the presidency.

In baseball, in the criminal justice system, and in the public eye, when you have three strikes, you are out. Clinton conducted an illegal war in Libya, orchestrated the assassination of a foreign head of state, and turned Libya into a gigantic terrorist training camp, even allowing weapons distributions to terrorists, treasonable offenses. Strike One.

Clinton knew there were security risks in Benghazi, sent people into harm’s way without adequate protect, ignored requests from her own ambassador for more security, and when the inevitable attacks resulted in the death of that ambassador and three others working to protect CIA personnel, she did not react to help them, then lied about the circumstances, for many weeks, then engaged a cover up, even suggesting the families of the fallen were liars. Strike Two.

Now, this email scandal, obviously showing a series of terrible misbehavior, putting our national security at risk, Strike Three.

We do know this controversy is not over with, that Clinton will now be scrutinized by Congress, and should a Republican be elected President in November, it is likely a special prosecutor will be assigned to this investigation. For the sake of liberty, the rule of law, national security, and justice in America, may the voters cast their ballots wisely in November.
