Despite repeated denials of wrongdoing, the allegations swirling around the Clinton campaign refuse to fall from the front pages. With recent comparisons of Republicans to terrorists, the Clinton campaign has clearly wanted to move on to other subjects by dialing up the rhetoric on other issues. While that may provide some momentary diversion, new reporting from Fox News indicates that the FBI is placing the allegations against Hillary’s alleged mishandling of classified information front and center of their attention:
An FBI “A-team” is leading the “extremely serious” investigation into Hillary Clinton’s server and the focus includes a provision of the law pertaining to “gathering, transmitting or losing defense information,” an intelligence source told Fox News.
The section of the Espionage Act is known as 18 US Code 793.
A separate source, who also was not authorized to speak on the record, said the FBI will further determine whether Clinton should have known, based on the quality and detail of the material, that emails passing through her server contained classified information regardless of the markings. The campaign’s standard defense and that of Clinton is that she “never sent nor received any email that was marked classified” at the time.
As the story continues to linger Hillary’s poll numbers continue to drop. In a recent poll the word voters most associated with her was “liar.” While her fate with the voters is looking increasingly precarious, indications are that the FBI may soon make those concerns secondary to her mounting legal worries.
