Would you care if Donald Trump did something illegal and then got away with it? Simple question, do not deflect. Would it bother you if Donald Trump did something illegal and got away with it? Once again, this is about Donald Trump and only Donald Trump. Let's see if you can handle this simple question.
Deflect? That's what you're doing, deflecting away from the issue of this thread. But I'll play. How about this? Have you ever done something illegal? I sure as heck have, and I was lucky to get away with some of the things I've done...
...and the same goes for most men I've known over the years. We all do stupid crap sometimes. Hillary did - she was a hardheaded dumbass with her e-mail server, and your question is OBVIOUSLY a set-up to gripe about Hillary. But was there malice involved
? Was it her intent to put classified information at risk? THAT, sir, is the question you should be asking yourself...and then think back to the stupid things that most guys (almost certainly including you) have done over the years - did most guys do stupid crap with the intent to do that which they know is very wrong? No.
And that's the FBI Director's point - the intent to do that which is wrong was not demonstrably there. There was no apparent malicious intent.
For some time, I was the shipboard equivalent of the chief of police, and at other times I was the lead investigator and even served as the acting legal officer...all of which is unusual for a steam plant engineer. But I was trusted with those positions because the command knew I did. not. assume. I did not allow my personal feelings and prejudices get in the way of following the evidence. When it comes to what Hillary did, if the same thing had happened on board the ship, would the one who did it have been "fired"? NO. It wouldn't have gone to court-martial, and it's doubtful that it would have gone to the administrative proceeding known as "Captain's Mast". It would have boiled down to the gut feelings of whoever was in charge, but the most likely outcome would have been a serious "counseling chit" and a preferably-legendary ass-chewing that the one concerned would remember for the rest of his career. But "fired"? No.
Therefore, the answer to your question is: It depends. What was the intent? Was there malice involved? You cannot make a blanket statement as to what should happen when a crime is committed, because every single case may be (and usually is) different. Were there mitigating factors? What is the evidence for or against? But one of the most important factors is, "What was the intent?"
NOW, let's get back to the subject of this thread: why is Trump not just going to white supremacist websites, but even retweeting information from white supremacist websites? A presidential candidate going to white supremacist websites shows INTENT to do that which NO presidential candidate should do. A presidential candidate retweeting information from a white supremacist website shows INTENT to do that which NO presidential candidate should do.
Hillary's actions were stupid. Trump's actions support that which is evil. That, sir, is the difference.
I answered your question - so now you answer mine.
