Americans everywhere were stunned on Tuesday when FBI Director James Comey announced that Hillary Clinton will not be charged for her use of a personal email server during her time as Secretary of State. Now, a previous case has come to light that shows how corrupt our legal system has become as well as what the FBI really did for Clinton.
Back in July of 2015, U.S. Navy Reservist Bryan Nishimura was sentenced to two years probation as well as a $7,500 fine for using his personal computer to access classified material. Though this was similar to what Clinton was doing, the FBI’s resolution was much different.
The FBI’s own website stated that Nishimura “caused the materials to be downloaded and stored on his personal, unclassified electronic devices and storage media” without intending to distribute it to unauthorized personnel. According to Conservative Tribune, the FBI stated that Clinton and her staff were said to be guilty of having “evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”
The difference here is that Nishimura was still a reservist at the time of his conviction while Clinton had already left government service, even though she is doing everything she can to get back into it. This means that the “security or administrative sanctions” that Comey said would be appropriate in cases like this don’t apply to her anymore.
This means that Comey obviously believed that Clinton had violated the law, but he wasn’t confident that he could get a conviction against her in a court of law, even after spending literally millions of taxpayer dollars in the attempt.
