We're Still in the Dark

            Hillary Clinton probably used a private email server in order to avoid Freedom of Information Act inquiries.  This made her communications vulnerable to hacking by foreign governments.  If Russia, China, Israel, Iran, and North Korea do not have everything Clinton transmitted and received then their IT people have not been doing their job.  Some sixteen year old kid from New Jersey probably has them too.  Can it be proven that she was hacked?  Reportedly she received “operational intelligence.”  If these messages included the names of individuals working covertly for the U.S. their lives would be in jeopardy.  If agents suddenly went silent the CIA must have known about this.  U.S. intelligence has a very poor record of protecting its foreign assets.  According to Rep. Peter King, Dr. Shakeel Afridi, who helped the CIA find Osama bin Laden was outed by high government officials.  More than three weeks after the attack in Benghazi there were personnel records of Libyans who were working for the U.S. “scattered on the floor” of the compound.  A Washington Post reporter gathered samples of these documents. 

            The Justice Department will have a hard time indicting Clinton.  She has information the Obama Administration would not like to have public.  Our adversaries also have this information.  Were Clinton to become President they would be in a position to threaten her with disclosure.  It appears that the only people still in the dark about these matters are the American public.
