Senate investigators find no evidence China hacked Clinton server

" A long-running Republican-led investigation into the handling of classified information on Hillary Clinton’s private email server did not find any evidence that China had successfully hacked the former secretary of state,confirming the findings of the FBI, according to a memo released by two senior senators this week."

Here’s the real question.

Will Republicans and Republican media people continue to promote this anyway?


It will be like the “Clinton body count” nonsense.

You probably should have read the entire article.


After its own investigation, the FBI concluded in 2016 that there was no “direct evidence” that the server had been successfully hacked, though former FBI Director James Comey conceded that “given the nature of the system and of the actors potentially involved, we assess that we would be unlikely to see such direct evidence.”

It will live (echo, echo, echo, echo) in (echo, echo, echo, echo) infamy (echo).

It’s sprung back to life on this very thread.

Repubs would continue to investigate the Clintons without evidence a crime has been committed? And we know where repubs stand on using the power of government to go after their political enemies.


That’s funny.

Whether or not the Chinese hacked her server it was illegal for there to be classified data on it.

We’ll get really creative responses though.

Not really. Intent matters.

Not what the relevant statute says

from 18 U.S. Code § 793 - Gathering, transmitting or losing defense information | U.S. Code | US Law | LII / Legal Information Institute


Whoever, being entrusted with or having lawful possession or control of any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch, photograph, photographic negative, blueprint, plan, map, model, instrument, appliance, note, or information, relating to the national defense, (1) through gross negligence permits the same to be removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of his trust, or to be lost, stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, or (2) having knowledge that the same has been illegally removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of its trust, or lost, or stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, and fails to make prompt report of such loss, theft, abstraction, or destruction to his superior officer—

Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.

So are you assuming the Chinese DID hack Clinton’s server?

He’s assuming Comey told the truth… this time.

No, I am assuming that even if they did that doesn’t mean they left evidence behind so it remains possible that they did.

I sorta believe the “Clinton body count” stuff. I always suspected that it was Hillary who kicked Rand Paul’s ass.

I bet some NPC snowflakes thought it was a dispute over lawn clippings or something :confused:


Only in Comey’s pocketbook…er, mind.

Anything is possible. It is possible that Trump is a Russian agent.

No, the statute requires scienter.

The funny thing is, this is basically what the Mueller report says re: conspiracy.
