Gen. Michael Flynn was indicted for a false statement to the FBI. The head of the FBI confirmed in a congressional hearing that Hillary Clinton lied to the FBI numerous times? Congress subpoenas all records of HRC. Destruction of any is a felony. To date, she hasn’t been charged with repeated lying to the FBI or felony destruction of 33,000 records she was ordered to protect, preserve and deliver.

"Equal justice under the law?"

Why was a Republican charged with one count of lying when a Democrat with many felony violations isn’t charged with anything?

For Hillary Clinton justice is spelled "Just Us."

Hillary Clinton is unimportant. That's why.

If you feel she should be charged, don't complain to the Daily News, complain to the president. His administration is responsible for federal charges. [whistling]

Gary Miller

Steve! I am not complaining to the Daily News. The only way the Daily News has been involved is not reporting anything about HRC's criminal history. I'm sure Trump knows she will be jailed but isn't worried about when or for how many centuries. Same for the dozens of Clintonestas who will keep her company.

"And I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling believers in the Rule of Law!" - Hillary [wink]
Didn't she ride in a Scooby Van?

Emile Pope

Perhaps for the same reason she wasn't indicted for kidnapping the Lindbergh baby...she didn't do it. Or do you believe she was guilty of that also?

Carlos Ponce

Just wait, Emile. Hillary has a meeting with destiny to account for her shenanigans. Sorry, but bringing up the Lindbergh baby is sheer ignorance.

Complain to the president, Carlos. He's in charge now. [yawn]

Carlos Ponce

The president is only one branch of government. He's just the Chief Executive, not a dictator.

Steve Fouga

Carlos, the Justice Dept is within the president's purview. If he wants Hillary charged, he can make it happen, if there is sufficient evidence to bring charges. I can only conclude there isn't sufficient evidence, or he's not doing his job, or he's lazy, or he's incompetent, or something. Take your choice.

Maybe like me, he thinks it's not worth pursuing. If it were me, I would bitch about Hillary to keep my easily distracted base happy, while instructing my Attorney General to delay any serious investigation of Ms. Clinton, because it's unlikely to be a case the Govt can win. Seems like maybe that's what he's doing... [cool]

Carlos Ponce

"he can make it happen" Don't worry, there's things being done off scene by the Justice Department that will reveal the truth. Look forward to it!

Gary Miller

Emile! Sorry but she did do it. She admitted she did it while the FBI director was sheltering her. She doesn't have that protection now. Lock her up.

Gary Scoggin

I’m sure happy the Justice System in this country doesn’t operate off of internet comments.

Steve Fouga

Me too, Gary. But if it did, I have no doubt that Trump would be in jail by now. We live in the isolated confines of deep-red southeast TX. Most people feel a lot differently than our friends on this forum. [wink]

Cary Semar

Gary, your claim is false. The head of the FBI did not tell congress that Hilary lied to the FBI. He said, there was "no basis to conclude she lied to the FBI." Donald Trump is the source of this claim and he is an unreliable witness.

Gary Miller

Gary! I was watching on live TV when FBI director Comey listed HRC lies at a congressional hearing. Since then I've seen numerous replays of that hearing.He then said he didn't think she intended to break the law. How much she paid him for that performance is unknown.

Carlos Ponce

From the Liberal Politifact:
"Our ruling
Clinton said, 'I never received nor sent any material that was marked classified.'
Clinton has made this claim over and over again. An independent FBI investigation has found that to be inaccurate."
http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2016/jul/06/hillary-clinton/fbi-findings-tear-holes-hillary-clintons-email-def/
In other words, HILARY LIED TO THE FBI.
What did Comey say on the topic?
"Our investigation looked at whether there is evidence classified information was improperly stored or transmitted on that personal system, in violation of a federal statute making it a felony to mishandle classified information either intentionally or in a grossly negligent way, or a second statute making it a misdemeanor to knowingly remove classified information from appropriate systems or storage facilities."
"From the group of 30,000 e-mails returned to the State Department, 110 e-mails in 52 e-mail chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received. Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and eight contained Confidential information, which is the lowest level of classification. Separate from those, about 2,000 additional e-mails were 'up-classified' to make them Confidential; the information in those had not been classified at the time the e-mails were sent."

"We have no basis to conclude she lied to the FBI," then-FBI Director James Comey testified under oath to the House of Representatives in July 2016 about Clinton's handling of classified information on a private email server. "I have no basis for concluding that she was untruthful with us."
In other words, Comey contradicts his own findings. Comey did say it but HE LIED TOO!

Jim Forsythe

Michael Flynn had already purposely leaked classified intel  at the time he  accused Hillary of mishandling classified intel.
At this time ,only one of them has pleaded guilty. He is awaiting his punishment.
Nothing is stopping a investigated of Hilary. If I'm not mistaken, I think they announced, that one was happening.

  Now the only questions does Flynn goes to prison — Lock Him Up. That does sound silly, to chant, lock them up.
What Hillary been charged with, and found guilty of , to go to jail for. You can not be locked them up, until charged, and found guilty.
If it was only public option that mattered, then the President would be in jail . Thank goodness, we do not lock someone up , because some do not like them.

Gary Miller

JIM! Flynn charges had nothing to do with classified Intel He failed to tell Pence and the FBI about conversation with a Diplomat. When Flynn gets to court the charges will be dismissed because sourced on inadmisable information illegaly aquired.
The charges against HRC could lead to RICO convictions of the entire Clinton criminal family. Between 20 and 30 high level Democrats could be involved.

Jim Forsythe

"The charges against HRC could lead to RICO convictions " but may not.
But today, Flynn "inappropriately shared” classified information with foreign military officers"   When and if she is charged and convicted, than she can be locked up.  Flynn has pleaded guilty, and is awaiting sentencing.

"Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, President-elect Donald Trump’s choice for national security adviser, railed during the campaign against Hillary Clinton for her reported mishandling of classified material as secretary of state. But according to U.S. Army records published Wednesday by the Washington Post, Flynn “inappropriately shared” classified information with foreign military officers in Afghanistan.
That was the conclusion of a secret 2010 U.S. military investigation, according to documents obtained by the newspaper under the Freedom of Information Act"   https://www.yahoo.com/news/flynn-trumps-national-security-adviser-mishandled-classified-information-army-records-show-152643665.html

Carlos Ponce

"But today, Flynn 'inappropriately shared” classified information with foreign military officers'.
This occurred in 2010 while he was acting under the OBAMA administration when he was director of intelligence of the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan. Obama must have liked what Flynn did since he appointed Flynn director of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2012.

"...he was not disciplined or reprimanded after the investigation concluded that he did not act 'knowingly' and that 'there was no actual or potential damage to national security as a result,' according to Army records obtained by The Washington Post under the Freedom of Information Act."
Jim, there is a HUGE difference between Military and civilian proceedings.

Jim Forsythe

Is your point he did not share info, or just the timing. Guilty is guilty.

Jim Forsythe

"President Trump’s national security adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn, was forced to resign on Monday night as a result of getting caught lying about whether he discussed sanctions in a December telephone call with a Russian diplomat"

Carlos Ponce

Jim, what part of "...he was not disciplined or reprimanded after the investigation concluded that he did not act 'knowingly' and that 'there was no actual or potential damage to national security as a result,' according to Army records obtained by The Washington Post under the Freedom of Information Act" do you not understand?
Guilty is guilty but the military found him NOT GUILTY!!!!

Carlos Ponce

And what do things that happened during the OBAMA administration have anything to do with the TRUMP administration?
2010 - Matter investigated, found NOT GUILTY by a military hearing.
2012 - appointed by President Obama.
2017 Fired for not telling VP Pence the entire story behind his talks with LEGAL talks with Russians during December 2016. It made Pence look bad when answering questions about the matter. THAT'S WHY HE WAS FIRED!!!!!!!!!!!

Jim Forsythe

Trump promised to hire the best people. It a good thing he did not hire the worse people! How many more will be leaving in the future.
Is it not enough that he lied, and Flynn did lie. He lied after Trump hired him.
He had a history of not being the best soldier for his boss. If someone is warned about a potential employee, and still hire them, they can not say they did not know.
Why was Flynn  fired the first time? He was let go by Obama in 2014, but was still hired by Trump and lasted until February 10.
"Flynn, it should be noted, was fired by President Obama. Fox News reports that his military career ended when Obama dismissed him as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014. The firing was for insubordination, after Flynn failed to follow guidance from superiors."

President Trump knew about Flynn, and hired him anyway, even after he was warned about Flynn. With a huge pool to pick from, he had to have Flynn.
"Former President Obama warned President Donald Trump against hiring Mike Flynn as his national security adviser, three former Obama administration officials tell NBC News.
The warning came less than 48 hours after the November election when the two sat down for a 90-minute conversation in the Oval Office.
A senior Trump administration official acknowledged Monday that Obama raised the issue of Flynn, saying the former president made clear he was "not a fan of Michael Flynn"

Yates also warned Trump about him, and urged him to take action. Our national security adviser was compromised but trump procrastinated about letting him go.
“We wanted to tell the White House as quickly as possible,” Ms. Yates told a Senate Judiciary subcommittee on Monday. “To state the obvious: You don’t want your national security adviser compromised with the Russians.”
Flynn remained for 18 more days.

Jim Forsythe

'there was no actual or potential damage to national security as a result,' according to Army records obtained by The Washington Post under the Freedom of Information Act" do you not understand?He was no longer in the Army after 2014. 
Were they talking about none subjects, that did not have potential damage to national security? You have no idea what was said, unless you were their or on the phone with them.. Flynn did not get fired for being honest.

Flynn resigned as Trump's national security after 24 days into the new administration after it was revealed he discussed sanctions in a December phone call with the Russian ambassador — despite Flynn's earlier denials. Trump took 18 days to boot Flynn

Carlos Ponce

Jim, set up a timeline for each event. You will find that your conclusions are nonsense.

Jim Forsythe

No longer in the Army after 2014
December ( 2016) phone call with the Russian ambassador — despite Flynn's earlier denials
Lied to Pence, January 2017
Flynn fired by Trump, Feb. 13, 2017. 
Believe what you want, Flynn is still guilty.

Carlos Ponce

Whatever, Jim, Whatever. It's still nonsense.
