That's easy. Petraeus turned over classified information to his publicist for his book. Mrs. Clinton, even if some of that information was indeed classified at the time (which is in dispute), was using information for a legitimate governmental purpose -- the same as Rice and Powell.

Better have a good VP.

22 posts and still no one has an answer to my question...

This is not a thread to discuss whether she did something worthy of being indited. (there are enough of those threads) The question is.....


IF she is the nominee and she is indited does Bernie take over by default or does the process start over?????

The answer to your "question" is:

There will be no indictment.

Just as there hasn't been for the past 20+ years.

Why on earth do you think anyone would know the answer? It hasn't occurred before! Your guess is certainly as good as anyone's.

They won't answer it because it's very inconvenient question. This is because to answer the question, one must first admit the possibility exists, and to do that, one has to accept that she may have broken the law.

I'll answer it for you.

In terms of what happens, that is a big unknown. I don't think there are any historical precedents that would apply to the modern era. Furthermore If Hillary is indicted, there is nothing in the Constitution that would require her to withdraw from the race. She can remain on the ballot and even be elected though it's unlikely she would win the election. But if by chance she did, the Congress could move to impeach her a soon as she takes office.

Otherwise It really is up to Hillary and what she wants and what the DNC wants her to do.

Once again - you are being dishonest.

-Petraeus was punished in part for keeping classified info in a desk drawer. How is that different than classified info on a private not properly secured server? How is that different than being in China and sending classified info via an unprotected Chinese telecommunications company?

-Petraeus shared info with his autobiographer who did not have clearance...does Huma Abedin have clearance?


You are a dishonest person that keeps changing the goal posts and using faulty logic.


You support the 1% elites being above us plebeians.

If Hillary is indicted, the nomination would not go to Bernie by default. The nomination would be decided by a majority of the delegates to the Democratic Convention. If she were indicted, she would be pressured to withdraw, but probably not legally required to withdraw. If she withdrew, the question would be whether a majority of delegates would coalesce around Bernie, or pressure Joe Biden or someone else to enter the race at the last minute. It hasn't happened in our lifetime, but in 1924 the Democrats didn't nominate a candidate until the 104th ballot. A Convention surprise isn't likely, but if no one receives a majority in the primaries it is possible.
