Hillary Clinton stunned the world when she got away with the gross mishandling of classified information through her use of a private email. Yet former FBI General Counsel James Baker sought to have Clinton charged for her crimes.

Baker explained how he saw enough evidence to charge Clinton for violations of the Espionage Act. He was under the assumption that this is how events would unfold until his former boss, FBI Director James Comey, announced that Clinton would not face charges.

Baker’s own position on the matter only changed after heated discussions with senior bureau colleagues, which included Comey. Baker stated that he had “argued with others about why they thought she shouldn’t be charged.”

The former FBI counsel lamented that he was ultimately persuaded not to pursue charges as the evidence was insufficient.

“I had that belief initially after reviewing, you know, a large binder of her emails that had classified information in them. And I discussed it internally with a number of different folks and eventually became persuaded that charging her was not appropriate because we could not establish beyond a reasonable doubt — we, the government, could not establish beyond a reasonable doubt that she had the intent necessary to violate (the law)….”

While it’s now in the past it’s unfortunate that Baker was so outnumbered as to allow Clinton to go free. If there’s any silver lining it’s that at least Clinton is being watched harder than ever.

  1. Well considering the trend of “no statute of limitations” in a variety of events, there now needs to be charges filed and pursued until conviction. Just like all the other cases. Only this one should involve punishment for traitorous acts.

  2. You can better believe if I or anyone that I worked with devulged confidential, secret, or top secret information I/we would have been breaking rocks at Leavenworth Federal Pen. But yes this priveliged rich person is allowed to go off scott free. She even sold some of our uranium to our arch enemyRussia (talk about collusion) for a huge donation to the Clinton Crime Foundation. Even Billy-Bob got in on the act and got $500,000 for giving a one time speech in Russia. Most of the attendees probably didn’t understand because they were not fluent enough in English. This woman defied government rules about safeguarding government documents, allowed some people not qualified to receive classified materials to have access to them. She had them on a server that any good hacker could break into and on handheld devices that were vulnerable to hacking also. But she’s still walking around the country and the world giving speeches and IS NOT EVEN UNDER INDICTMENT! Talk about CRAP, but that is CRAP.

  3. All of the ones involved with the F.B.I. should be fired and go to jail. I wonder if the Hillary gave any money to Comey and others to drop charges. She needs to be in jail, or hung for Treason.

    • I agree with all the above comments. Especially, where Mr. Saulsbury wondered if Hillary gave and money to Comey and “others” to drop charges. Remember Glen, she said “If I go down, I’m taking lot of others down with me. THATS.’ as close as anyone can get to a confession”. Most of the swamp would be gone by now and the special counsel investigation either would not have started or would’ve been over by now.

    • I don’t think it could be a money payment issue (they all have millions+), but more than likely is: The F.B.I. top personnel, had done some illegal acts for Bill/Hillary/Obama. These, acts could not never/ever be revealed else the whole house of cards would fall. As we all know, Bill/Hillary are very good at incorporating and then using or killing any of their known contacts, accomplices or patsies.

  4. That FBI Director Comey and his Progressive Liberal Democratic and Never Trumpster Left Leaning Non-Conservative Repub Cabal, including Mrs. HRC and #44 truly should be brought up on Espionage Charges, for deliberately sweeping their Illegal Actions under the Democratic Rug and then throwing that Democratic Rug in with all of their skeletons filled closet! The above portions of The US Political Party’s crammed closet needs to be opened, so the true Conservative Republicans can truly ask The Pertinent questions, an get ANSWERS AND UNDER OATH!!! Because every single US Congressional Member I Do Believe NEEDS TO RETAKE THAT OATH TO SERVE AND PROTECT THE US CONSTITUTION AND ALL OF THOSE AMENDMENTS THAT PREVIOUS US ADMINISTRATIONS ATTACHED TO IT, AND THE LEGALLY ELECTED US PRESIDENT MR. DONALD JOHN TRUMP AND “WE THE LEGAL CITIZENS/PEOPLE AND THE LEGAL IMMIGRANTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” CAN SEE AND HEAR WHAT ALL THE ILLEGAL ACTIONS THAT THE PLDP AND THE NTLLNon-CR, THAT TRULY SHOULD HAVE NEVER DONE, REMEMBER THE US JUSTICE SYSTEM IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE ACCUSED IS INNOCENT, UNLESS THE ACCUSED IS PROVEN TO BE GUILTY WITHOUT A DOUT!!!

  5. Hilary Clinton deserves to pay for all the dishonest crooked dealings she’s done to the USA and it’s citizens. I believe the citizens should be able to have her arrested and be in charge of her punishment. She is heartless and greedy and she’s not even a slightly nice person and her husband is a child molester and sexual preditor.

  6. Bill and Hillary are above the law, but Hillary needs to charged and put away for deliberate violations of exposing sensitive information, she needs to xcommunicado, and have the American public hunt her down, Bill had a hand in this matter with Loretta Lynch lying as well

  7. Bill, Hillary,Comey,Rice,Lynch and many others committed serious felonies and should all be in jail.These Democrats and many other Democrats in power do not care about America.All they care about is power and they will stoop to anything and already have to get into power.There are many good examples of the “elite” in government and ex gov. persons that have committed serious offences.eg there are twenty seven woman accusing Bill Clinton of rape…no investigation.Hillary has a vast amout in her phony foundation where it has been shown only five percent was ever donated to charity.The other hundreds of millions went into their pockets.Where is the IRS investigation. I could go on and on.Something should be done about these crimes .If the average citizen or permanent resident did a fraction of any of the multitude of crimes they would be in jail for a long time.

  8. I forgot to mention the border situation.The Democrats are doing there best to let hundreds of thousand of illegal immigrants into America.These people cost America billions.The Southern border lets in crime,slave trafficking,huge amount of drugs and they are doing their best to stop Trump putting a stop to America’s pathetic immigration situation.The wall is badly needed and the immigration laws need to be changed ASAP or America will suffer badly in the end.America is already suffering.80000 people dead last year from drugs.A truly pathetic situation.Thank goodness Hillary did not become president.Imagine having how this country would have gone straight downhill if she was president. Thank G-D for Trump,a true patriot whose only concern is for America and ALL the people .

  9. They belong in prison for alot more . But if this guy wants to see her charged them by all means let him do it. but for right now. Knowing the Clintons the way we do ——have this guy protected We don’t want to see him on hillary’s hit list.
