Hillary Clinton Tries to ‘Convict’ Trump, Gets Debunked and Gives Him a Huge Gift Instead

Twice-failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has weighed in on President Donald Trump’s legal issues surrounding the raid of his Mar-a-Lago home last month.

Hillary did her best to “convict” Trump by claiming that the “Clinton standard” for prosecution – that she was not charged so Trump should not be – is a myth.

However, she was swiftly debunked by a prominent national security lawyer.

“I can’t believe we’re still talking about this, but my emails…,” Hillary said in a Tuesday Twitter post.

“As Trump’s problems continue to mount, the right is trying to make this about me again.

“There’s even a ‘Clinton Standard.’

“The fact is that I had zero emails that were classified,” she claimed.

“Comey admitted he was wrong after he claimed I had classified emails.

“Trump’s own State Department, under two different Secretaries, found I had no classified emails.

“That’s right: ZERO.

“I’m more tired of talking about this than anyone, but here we are.

“If you’re interested in the facts, you can read more here.”

She linked to an article that said:

Nearly every day fresh revelations emerge in the federal investigation of the national security and presidential records that Donald Trump purloined from the White House.

So far, his alibis have been exposed one after another as empty, and we have seen no adequate public reckoning of why he took those papers, what he meant to do with them, how some went missing, or even exactly how many documents he hijacked to his Florida estate.

As more and more evidence of the former president’s reckless and potentially criminal misconduct comes to light, he and his defenders keep pointing to “her emails.”

They insist that because the Justice Department declined prosecution of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton after a long and thorough probe of how she handled allegedly classified information, there should be no investigation, let alone indictment or conviction of Trump.

But while we don’t yet know the extent or nature of Trump’s abuse of classified documents, we can determine how many were found by investigators, after exhaustive searches, among Clinton’s thousands of State Department emails.

The accurate and definitive answer is zero – although few if any news outlets have informed the public of that startling fact. Moreover, it is a fact that the Trump administration itself confirmed three years ago.

In the recent coverage that references her emails, former FBI Director James Comey is sometimes quoted as saying that of the 33,000 Clinton emails examined by bureau investigators, three had classification markings.

That’s less than one-hundredth of one percent, and not worth comparing to Trump’s malfeasance anyway, but it’s still false — apparently meant to bolster Comey’s absurd claim that other Clinton emails were “classified” although never marked as such.

Those three State Department documents were “call sheets,” innocuous memos reminding Clinton to make scheduled phone calls.

During her FBI interview, investigators showed her one of those memos, reminding her to place a condolence call to the president of Malawi–not exactly a top secret matter.

As Comey himself later admitted, any classification marking on that sheet had been wrongly applied.

In short, the three supposedly classified documents attributed to her emails were barely even confidential, let alone secret or subject to the sanctions of the Espionage Act.

Enter prominent national security lawyer Bradley P. Moss who immediately pulled the rug from under Hillary by publicly debunking her claims.

“I hate to do this, Madame Secretary, but that’s not entirely accurate,” Moss said.

“None of the emails were properly *marked* as classified.

“That is true, and is distinct from Trump’s situation.

“There was ‘spillage’ however of *information* within the unmarked emails that was classified.

“Most of that spillage was due to retroactive classification.

“And later reviews found you were not individually culpable for the spillages of information.

“But it is not accurate to say there was no classified information.”
