Conservatives have been shocked at how presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has gotten away with one scandal after the other without ever having to be held accountable.
Conservatives have demanded that she be indicted for mishandling national security information on her private email server – which is something Rep. Darrell Issa recently said that there is enough evidence to do.
“There is more than enough for an indictment,” Issa, the California Republican and former House Oversight Committee chairman, told Breitbart, referring to the applicable statute that held Clinton responsible for not transmitting classified material in an unsecured environment.
Clinton defended her actions by saying that it wasn’t immediately clear how “secure” some emails had to be before she sent or received them on her unsecured server.
Issa pointed out the responsibility to not put the country at risk is “not based on whether there’s the word ‘Secret’ all over it, but based on the presumption that you would recognize that classified material.”
“You don’t have to ask whether that’s classified,” the congressman said. “As an army lieutenant years ago, I knew that would be classified because it goes to sources and methods.”
Issa said he believed that Clinton’s actions directly implicated her ability to lead the country as the next president.
“It’s not even a high bar,” he said. “To be considered to be president of the United States, you are supposed to be completely free of this kind of treachery against your country.”
This “treachery” includes breaking the law with malice and forethought, for her own personal gain involving deals Clinton and her husband made to pocket hundreds of millions in foreign money, Issa said.
“She wanted that to be kept behind closed doors,” he said. “And she also wanted everything she did in an official capacity to be behind closed doors that were never available to this president even.
“She did that because she doesn’t know where the line is and she didn’t want to take the chance that her official side would expose her corrupt behavior in her personal life.”
Issa said there is enough evidence to indict Clinton, but he believes it would be up to the American people to play “judge and jury” in November’s presidential election.
