During her speech at the Democrat National Convention, Hillary Clinton briefly spoke about criminal justice reform, arguing that the system isn’t fair for everyone. She was trying to pander to the left’s narrative of systemic racism (that blacks get unfair sentences as opposed to whites), but she might as well have been talking about herself.
When it comes to justice, there’s two standards: one for if you’re Hillary Clinton, and another for everyone else. The conclusion of the FBI investigation into her private email server was a perfect demonstration of this. James Comey had read off a number of crimes she had committed at the conclusion of the investigation – then stated that there was nothing they could do.
Their reasoning? That Hillary Clinton didn’t intend to break the law, so they couldn’t recommend charges to the DOJ. Never before in history had intent mattered when it came to someone breaking the law. They’re aware that involuntary manslaughter is a crime, right? Maybe they just forgot that “involuntary” means.
What happens when someone commits the same exact crime as Hillary? They go to jail – just as they, and she, should. As Red State Watcher reported:
On Wednesday, a federal contractor was accused of removing and storing classified information in his house and car. Sound familiar? AP Reported: The New York Times reported: WASHINGTON — The F.B.I. secretly arrested a National Security Agency contractor in recent weeks and is investigating whether he stole and disclosed highly classified computer codes developed to hack into the networks of foreign governments, according to several senior law enforcement and intelligence officials.
The theft raises the embarrassing prospect that for the second time in three years an insider has managed to steal highly damaging secret information from the N.S.A. In 2013, Edward J. Snowden, who was also a contractor for the agency, took a vast trove of documents that were later passed to journalists, exposing N.S.A. surveillance programs in the United States and abroad.
This is huge. Did the FBI secretly arrest the person behind the reports NSA sat on huge flaws in US products? https://t.co/otgOwB5efm

And he’s not the only one. A fantastic article on Allen West’s website showed that there are no fewer than five cases of people committing the same crimes as Hillary Clinton – and being jailed for it.
1. Sandy Berger
Berger (who died in December) was (not surprisingly) a former Clinton administration official who was sentenced to two years probation, fined $50,000, and stripped of his security clearance for three years after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of unauthorized removal and retention of classified material in 2005.
2. Chelsea (Bradley) Manning
Bradley “Chelsea” Manning was dishonorably discharged from the Army and sentenced to 35 years in prison for violating the Espionage Act after providing classified material to WikiLeaks in 2010.
3. Gen David Petraeus
Petraeus was sentenced to two years probation, fined $100,000, and forced to resign as CIA director after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of mishandling classified information.
4. Kristen Saucier
Petty Officer First Class Kristian Saucier was indicted in July 2015 on felony charges of unauthorized retention of national defense information and obstruction of justice. Saucier was accused of taking photos of a classified engine room on a nuclear submarine, and attempting to destroy evidence after learning he was being investigated. He could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted on both charges.
5. Bryan Nishimura
Nishimura pleaded guilty to — and was charged for — “unauthorized removal and retention of classified materials without malicious intent.”
Now if only that list could add a Presidential candidate.
