This should be irrelevant since ignorance of the law is not a defense, however it now does matter due to Comey and Lynch bending over backwards to set a new precedent that directly contradicts this.

Seriously though, what is to stop people from referencing the Hillary defense of ignorance as defense of their own innocence in a court of law?

INAL but I believe legal precedent is set in court cases, not decisions of law enforcement or state attorneys.

They circumvented justice by having a news conference. In a court of law / grand jury, Mr Comey would have had to make his sworn statement before the court and it would become part of the public record. Then he would be eligible for prison on "obstruction of justice".

The fact that it hasn't worked for anyone else who has sited it, sure as hell ain't going to work for you, and isn't going to work for anyone else in the future.

Depends on what the definition of "is" is.

I have a feeling she knew because she's definitely not stupid. I have to think some of the idea to use a private server comes directly from Obama and at his behest to prevent info leaking about what he's trying to do in the Middle East and with refugees. He knows what he's doing is illegal and to some degree Hillary is falling on the sword which explains why Obama is breaking campaigns laws to use tax money to campaign for Hillary and why comey and lynch are protecting her. It's because Obama asked for it and wants it that way.

By moving her email to private server, she knowingly broke Federal Policy.

By breaking the rules, she accepted the risk of exposing US secrets to 3rd parties. She was the US Secretary of State. It was her job to keep the secrets from 3rd parties. Through willful deception/rule breaking she exposed US secrets to 3rd parties.

Why isn't this a criminal act?

Point: By breaking Federal email policy, she accepted the risk of exposing US secrets to 3rd parties. Secrets were exposed. No one else authorized the email move. Thus, 100% her fault the secrets were exposed. She should be punished.

Yes, well, while this may work in nations where rational discourse and the rule of law hold value, we live in corrupto-land, the world where political sycophants vote based on genitalia and abuse of power is the default modus operandi.

Being Corrupto-Land is going to bite us on the ass as nobody on the planet can trust our word about anything. If we can't even follow our own damn laws, how can we be trusted with treaties or any international agreements? How can anyone in their right mind want to do business with us?

Newsflash: All politicians are psychopaths. We all know they're all liars and crooks.

Every time a politician opens its mouth in front of a camera, it's to control you one way or another.

Why is Killary worth all this attention? Did you not know everything is rigged?

What you don't seem to be aware of though, is that it's not Killary personally that's rigged everything - it's the Deep State / Establishment / Powers That Shouldn't Be, or whatever you want to call the cabal of psychopaths calling the shots from behind the scenes.

Killary may be part of the Deep State, but even so, she doesn't make the decisions alone.

Here's what actually matters instead of this propaganda circus: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngpsJKQR_ZE&t=8

This link is very much worth the 10 min. watch not only because it is very funny, but also provocative, informative, and alternative. While he is not wrong, I still believe I should "give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and give to God what belongs to God." Also, have an ^vote for everything else you said besides the link posted.

There's a state dept email (sorry I don't have the wikileaks link) where she's like "does that guy work at state? I'm surprised he's using a personal email"

Somewhat off topic but, I sometimes go back to reddit to browse /r/conspiracy and it's pretty hilarious that this video, along with several other /v/news posts are only found in /r/conspiracy. Our news here is apparently still conspiracy there.
