Obama prosecuted more officials for leaks than all predecessors combined


The legal beagles go back and forth splitting hairs as to whether “intent” occurred as Hillary waltzed about with her blackberry and other assorted devices, reading her Emails. The wonks question whether intent was required to put Pant Suit in the slammer over this Email debacle. What the Daily Caller has done is collect the factoids that can’t be disputed. This administration doesn’t like people leaking info. I added in a clip for some fun. It is an old Hillary visit to the Jimmy Fallon show back in 2015 as she explains what is in her classified Emails. Just good hearted funarama.

So here we go with a collection of the cases:

Barack Obama’s Justice Department has prosecuted more government officials for alleged leaks of information under the World War I era Espionage Act than all his predecessors combined — yet Hillary Clinton managed to avoid becoming part of that statistic Tuesday morning.

The Justice Department swiftly prosecuted six federal government officials between 2009 and 2012 under the Espionage Act, Bloomberg News first reported noting the administration’s number of record-high prosecutions under the law. By 2014, nine people were prosecuted under the spy law. Four others were prosecuted under Nixon, Reagan, and George W. Bush. One of those four cases, under Nixon, was dismissed two years later.

One of the five who was convicted was Stephen Kim, a former State Department contractor who served a 13-month prison sentence for violating the spy act. The case lasted for five years until he pleaded guilty to leaking information about North Korea’s nuclear program to Fox News reporter James Rosen.

    {{Banging my head on the desk}}—“pant suit”, now that was funny…well…re listening to Comey tell the press that lower government officials who are caught will be prosecuted, but yet, higher officials won’t be…double standard…and they don’t even care what us minions care or feel. I’ll say it again, they are no longer hiding the progressive movement they are out and proud. {{back to banging my head-not really, but you get the frustration}}

    I have my issues with Trump.., but at least he calls it out and names it what it is. Come on silent majority–and quit being so silent. I am still holding out hope that us silent majority folks will come out in full force, if not, then we get what we deserve when “pant suit” is elected…I think the fix is in…even my 19 yr old who is going to vote for the first time goes, “Why would I vote? The fix is in! The Electoral College is going to vote her in.”

      I am looking forward to today’s hearing with Comey. I too have hope of an awakening. Trump was the best candidate IMO to move the silent ones. He is not running the best campaign but fun to watch. If we can get enough Dems we might just do it. Fingers crossed.

        we are eagerly awaiting Comey’s testifying as well…not that it really will get anywhere, just saying…how cynic of me, right? Agree about Trump. They need to go ahead and impeach Lynch while they are at it.
