For John, BLUF: Remember, the coverup is worse than the crime. Nothing to see here; just move along.
A couple of Marines♠ look at the Department of Justice action with regard to handling of classified at War on the Rocks.
The Bottom Line is that General Cartwright and General Petraeus were not fully frank and honest with the FBI, which is a bigger sin than any other, in the eyes of the FBI. The authors suggest that the actual case with regard to the handling of classified information wouldn't have held up (or in fact fell apart) in court.
Fortunately for Mrs Clinton, she just couldn't remember the answers to the questions. She forgot.
As an aside, should the FBI be allowed to prosecute you for lying to its agents, while those agents are allow to lie to you?
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
