Intel Vets Urge Fast Report on Clinton’s Emails

Hillary 1

Caricature – Bryan Hemming

Yesterday Robert Parry’s Consortimumnews published a message from a group of U.S. intelligence veterans calling on President Obama to expedite the FBI review of former Secretary of State Clinton’s alleged email security violations so the public can assess this issue in a timely fashion. I publish the opening paragraphs here:

Last Wednesday Robert Gates, CIA Director under President Bush-41 and Defense Secretary under President Bush-43, publicly commented that Secretary Hillary Clinton’s “whole email thing … is really a concern in terms of her judgment,” adding, “I don’t know what originally prompted her to think that was a good idea.”

What originally prompted her does not matter. As your Secretary of State and your subordinate, she willfully violated laws designed to protect classified information from unauthorized disclosure. It may be somewhat difficult for those not as immersed in national security matters as we have been to appreciate the seriousness of the offense, including the harm done in compromising some of the most sensitive U.S. programs and activities. This is why we write.

    Fascinating read. I’m sure the foot dragging is doing more harm than it could ever do good. I wonder if there will be any response at all to this letter. Thanks for sharing.

      It’s more a matter of how long any response takes. If the Democrat leadership’s confidence in Hillary’s chances starts falling as quickly as the electorate’s is, we can expect a response before the end of June.
