RUSH: Mrs. Clinton -- apparently, obviously clear here -- is gonna get away with violating all kinds of national security. The latest thing that she's guilty of here -- and it's a felony. Andy McCarthy wrote about this today at National Review Online. (shuffling papers) Let me find it here. What it is, Obama issues an executive order, number 13526.
"In the first year of his administration (December 29, 2009, to be exact), President Obama issued Executive Order 13526, entitled 'Classified National Security Information.' It explains that information is deemed classified if its disclosure would cause 'damage to the national security.' Beyond that, whether the classified information is categorized as 'top secret,' 'secret,' or 'confidential' depends on how serious the damage would be.
"With that as background, the order makes clear that there is one category of information that is automatically deemed classified: information from foreign governments. Section 1.1(d) of the executive order decrees: 'The unauthorized disclosure of foreign government information is presumed to cause damage to the national security.'" I'm sorry; guilty! There is no way Mrs. Clinton can say that this did not happen with these e-mails that she has or has not released.
We can document it. There have been e-mails about foreign governments, disclosure of foreign government information. Hell, she's out soliciting donations from them, for the Clinton Crime Family Foundation, for crying out loud, and her future presidency. She's in violation of executive order. The executive order governs the executive branch. I know you're probably saying, "Wait a minute, Rush! Are you validating an Obama executive order?"

Of course, we would prefer this outcome...
Wouldn’t that be ironic. Or was it intentional?
The order says: Foreign government information means:
(1) information provided to the United States Government by a foreign government or governments, an international organization of governments, or any element thereof, with the expectation that the information, the source of the information, or both, are to be held in confidence;
(2) information produced by the United States Government pursuant to or as a result of a joint arrangement with a foreign government or governments, or an international organization of governments, or any element thereof, requiring that the information, the arrangement, or both, are to be held in confidence; or
(3) information received and treated as foreign government information under the terms of a predecessor order.
I think Obama is playing chicken with Hillary to get out of the race. Hillary hasn’t figured out Obama holds all the cards with the justice department. Obama will keep releasing things until Hillary figures it out... If she takes it too far she’ll end up in prison...

The fees were paid directly to the former president, and not directed to his philanthropic foundation.
