Hillary Clinton Email Scandal: What Was Found, What Hasn’t Been Done

The State Department conducted an investigation into the Hillary Clinton email scandal – the investigation was completed in September. Almost 600 violations were found in the 33,000 emails reviewed.

What they found

The Washington Examiner noted:

The State Department identified nearly 600 security violations in its now-completed review of email records of dozens of former agency officials and aides to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The investigation, which covered the 33,000 emails Clinton provided for review, found 91 “valid violations” attributable to 38 individuals, some of whom may face disciplinary action. Another 497 violations could not be tied to any specific person…

…The 36-month inquiry sought to determine “if any of the emails under review represented a failure to properly safeguard classified information” and whether any individuals could be determined to bear individual responsibility. Investigators reviewed thousands of documents, received hundreds of statements, and met with dozens of current and former State Department employees. The review was completed on Sept. 6.

It is unclear if any of the 38 people still work for the State Department,  and if they do, what punishment they will receive.  It’s that lack of clarity that makes most of us furious over Clinton getting away with the violations in the first place.

What they’re not going to do

No, Hillary will not go to jail, as much as we would love to see that. The excuses are abundant:

They found “no pervasive evidence of systematic, deliberate mishandling of classified information.”

The “significant break in time” from the incidents would cause memory issues with the persons involved.

Some of the employees responsible are now “unreachable or unresponsive.” IF any judicial action were to be taken on those people, it would have to be placed on file to see if/when anyone responded or appealed.

The FBI says it was only able to recover 5,000 of the emails that Paul Combetta scrubbed from Hillary’s server.

So, in essence, they aren’t likely to do anything at all. And once again, the Hillary Clinton email scandal seems to go unpunished. We’ll have to see if any of those who committed these violation will be found and/or punished. Don’t hold your breath.
