Yes, this issue MUST be pursued. Her actions have left the door to our national security wide open. The real question is, why do so many not see the importance and ramifications of her laxity. Can anyone be so clueless regarding our safety. One might ask were her lack of proper procedures for handling sensitive materials intentional or unintentional. Neither one is comforting.

Hillary Clinton’s email scandal is one of the most important, yet largely undiscussed issues of the 2016 election. Even though this scandal has been going on for over a year, a vast majority of Americans are still unsure of what exactly she did wrong. Many in the Democratic Party believe this whole controversy has simply been a partisan, Republican attack to damage her Presidential campaign. That view has been reinforced by Sen. Bernie Sanders (D – Vermont) who has refused to raise the issue in the primary elections thus far – something both potential Republican nominees have promised to do in the general election. So what is going on here?
Anyone who has read about the scandal is aware that it involves a private email server and maybe something to do with classified information. Beyond all the confusion over what exactly she may have done, in August 2015 the FBI officially launched an investigation into Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server while she was Secretary of State. The FBI’s involvement should signal that this is no longer a partisan issue, they would only be called in if federal crimes were committed. The investigation is on-going but rumor has it that the FBI is ready to refer Clinton for indictment to the Department of Justice. The decision to prosecute Clinton lies with the Attorney General Loretta Lynch and President Barack Obama. The FBI is rumored to make their official recommendation around May or June with the Democratic National Convention choosing the party’s Presidential nominee in July.

The primary issue that FBI investigators are looking at is whether or not Clinton knowingly retained, transmitted, or deleted classified information from her private server. Communicating this type of information through unsecure means could put highly classified government secrets at risk by making them susceptible to hackers and spies. As of January 2016, the State Department has withheld 22 emails from Clinton’s server as being too classified to release to the public. We know two of these emails surround the movement of North Korean missiles, and the specifics of a drone operation. Clinton has denied wrongdoing by saying these emails have all been retroactively classified, and she neither sent nor received information “marked classified” while Secretary of State. More importantly, as the head of the agency she was the ultimate arbiter of what information would or wouldn’t be considered classified at the time. After Clinton turned over 55,000 pages of emails to the State Department, she subsequently deleted the remaining contents on the server claiming those emails to be personal and not work-related.
There are several laws surrounding the mishandling of classified information which are spelled out under Title 18 US Criminal Codes and Procedures. The two statutes federal investigators are most interested in are Title 18 U.S. Code § 1924 and Title 18 U.S. Code § 793. A violation of Section 1924 is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine and up to a year in prison, while a violation of Section 793, “The Espionage Act,” is a felony punishable by a fine and up to ten years in prison.
The existing legal analysis of this issue has mostly been done by ABC legal analyst Dan Abrams, Emeritus Professor of Law Richard Lempert and Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus. Their arguments center on the difficulty to find compelling evidence that Hillary Clinton knowingly sent sensitive information, because there are no emails “marked classified” on her server. They also believe it would be hard to prove Clinton intentionally put American secrets at risk with her emailing practices and server security.
Based on the available evidence, I disagree with the existing legal conclusions and there are already signs that the Department of Justice does as well. Here are the reasons Hillary Clinton should and will be indicted for violating Section 1924 and Section 793 of US Title 18 while Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013.

Be warned: Evil takes the word "religion" and changes its foundations and calls it "good." Beware the false religions that mask as "good." Satan salivates to take a "good-sounding" word, like "religion," and use it to destroy souls, not save them. Look at the "fruits" produced in a religion. ARE THEY OF GOD ? OR ARE THEY OF MAN? Are followers firm in the foundations of God's Word or do they CHANGE the Way and Truth of God's Word? Does a group under the banner "religion" follow a book for the good, love and respect of others? OR DOES THEIR "BOOK" CALL FOR HARM FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT BELONG TO THEIR "FLOCK?" If love is not the center of a religion, if the God of Heaven's Armies is not honored above all, if a religion creates death and harm to others.... then it is of Satan and for harm and destruction.
Beware the leaders in the world today, including many "religions," who claim goodness when their fruits prove their rottenness and deceitful ploys to trap souls into their ways and into their flocks. SATAN DEVOURS, and he uses his taken to trap more hearts and minds.
Today, many of America's government leaders claim to be Christians but do not hold up to their oaths of office TO GOD OR TO US TO PROTECT AND DEFEND US AND OUR RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS. They lie to God and to you. They call what is bad, "good." They call what is good, "bad." God tells you in His Word what they are like, how to recognize them..... what their "fruits" reveal. HEED GOD'S LOVING WARNING FOR YOUR LIVES IN AMERICA NOW. You are free to accept God and Jesus as your Savior or free to follow the deceptive path of lies by his taken who only seek DESTRUCTION.
Don't underestimate the power of Satan over your heart and mind. He can blind and confuse and sway by powerful methods. Without God's Word FIRMLY set to combat the lies and the Holy Spirit in you, YOU CAN BE TRAPPED INTO THINKING SOMETHING IS GOOD AND RIGHT WHEN IT IS DEADLY TO YOUR SOUL, YOUR COUNTRY, YOUR ETERNAL FUTURE.
Continuing to support leaders who do not execute their oaths and commitment to citizens AND GOD, and still expecting them to "keep their words" now, is feeding a lying, deceptive beast with power ..... the result is devastating to our nation, our families, and ourselves. Trusting repeated CHANGERS and expecting good results is feeding the beast of your own destruction. BE BOLD IN THE POWER OF CHRIST. STIFFEN YOUR NECK IN FAITH AND COURAGE AND DEFENSE OF THE ONE TRUE GOD. If we do not, Satan and his taken will gladly consume your soul from the neck up and the neck down. The spiritual battlefield is raging NOW. Choose your "side" very carefully. Do it now. There is only ONE FIRM FOUNDATION....GOD ALMIGHTY. All else is sinking sand. The great liar, Satan, wants your soul away from God. Choose now to stand firm with your Loving Father God today.
