Is Poetic Justice on the Horizon?

"There's a bigger story hidden inside the New York Times report that 'a special intelligence review of two emails that Hillary Rodham Clinton received as secretary of state on her personal account -- including one about North Korea's nuclear weapons program -- ... contained highly classified information when Mrs. Clinton received them, senior intelligence officials said.' The review was undertaken by the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, which presumably originated the material. They concluded that the material had originally been given the U.S. government's highest secrecy classification. Even if one of Clinton's aides stripped the markings (a felony), Secretary Clinton surely knew satellite intelligence and North Korean nuclear deployments are the U.S. government's most highly classified information.
"The media correctly saw the news as political trouble for Hillary, but they missed two other crucial elements of the story. Somebody high up in the intelligence community leaked that story. And Hillary faces far more than political trouble. She's being fitted for an orange jumpsuit. ...
"The intelligence services remember how seriously the Department of Justice dealt with former CIA directors John Deutsch and David Petraeus, who mishandled documents. They will demand equal treatment here. They will keep the heat on by leaking to the press. The Times story shows the faucet is already open. ...
"If Hillary's political troubles keep piling up, she won't make it to the general election. If her legal troubles keep piling up, she's going to wish the next president was Gerald Ford." - Professor Charles Lipson, University of Chicago
