FBI agents forced to sign non-disclosure agreements, for the first time, to protect Hillary
The FBI went to extraordinary lengths to make sure there would be no unofficial leaks when they interviewed Clinton on her misuse of classified emails. As Will Grigg wrote for Liberty News Daily,
FBI agents who interviewed Hillary Clinton about her documented mishandling of classified materials were careful not to put her under oath, or to make a comprehensive written record of the conversation. Now her legal team is seeking a judicial order preventing Mrs. Clinton from making a sworn deposition in a private lawsuit filed by the legal activist group Judicial Watch. The motion filed by Clinton’s attorneys contends that the public record “already answers” the questions that the group would pose during a deposition. Not surprisingly, the motion doesn’t mention the fact that Mrs. Clinton’s answers were not made under penalty of perjury, and that they frequently contradict the evidence obtained through the FBI’s investigation, even though that evidence was not used to seek an indictment.
Grigg also revealed that agents present had to sign a non-disclosure agreement never to talk about anything they heard there. This is the first time such a measure has been used against agents.

Clinton Clearly Violated the Law
No Clinton charge July 6
Those who do not believe that Hillary Clinton (and her staff ) committed a crime should read 18 U.S. Code 793, which states that the mishandling of sensitive national security information is a felony - regardless of whether the mishandling is intentional or whether a foreign government succeeded in accessing it.
Paragraph (f) sets the bar at 'gross negligence,' with a penalty of 10 years in prison per count:
'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 10 years, or both.'
What is it that FBI Director James Comey did not understand?
There is absolutely nothing about intent.
I guess the next time I get a speeding ticket, I will tell the officer that
'I did not intend to speed and I will be more careful next time.'
Let's face facts:
Comey did not want to be the person who assures that Donald Trump is elected president.
Not that I can blame him.
[Perhaps Comey was afraid of catching: "The Vince Foster Flu"]
