Dare to Compare: Robert Hanssen and Hillary Clinton
August 29, 2018 | Slyfox

Posted on 08/29/2018 5:34:49 AM PDT by Slyfox

From Wikipedia:

Robert Hanssen sold thousands of classified documents to the KGB which detailed U.S. strategies in the event of nuclear war, developments in military weapons technologies, and aspects of the U.S. counterintelligence program.[3] He was spying at the same time as Aldrich Ames in the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Both Ames and Hanssen compromised the names of KGB agents working secretly for the United States, some of whom were executed for their betrayal. Hanssen also revealed a multimillion dollar eavesdropping tunnel built by the FBI under the Soviet Embassy in Washington. After Ames' arrest in 1994, some of these intelligence breaches still remained unsolved. The FBI paid $7 million to a KGB agent to obtain a file on an anonymous mole, who the FBI later identified as Hanssen through fingerprint and voice analysis.

Hanssen was arrested on February 18, 2001, at Foxstone Park[4] near his home in Vienna, Virginia after leaving a package of classified materials at a dead drop site. He was charged with selling U.S. intelligence documents to the Soviet Union and subsequently the Russian Federation for more than US$1.4 million in cash and diamonds over a 22-year period.[5] To avoid the death penalty, he pleaded guilty to 14 counts of espionage and one of conspiracy to commit espionage.[6][7] He was sentenced to 15 life terms without the possibility of parole.

*****

Now, compare Robert Hanssen to Hillary Clinton. How many secrets did she make possible for our enemies to access? How much money did the Clinton Foundation take in just so she would have a huge war chest in order to run for president? How many people have died to keep her secrets?

Hillary should go down in history as the worst traitor to ever spy on this country, worse than Robert Hanssen, worse than Aldrich Ames and worse than both Julius and Ethel Rosenberg.

Time to expand our thinking.

Clearly, the part below the line of asterisks isn’t from Wikipedia!

Modern democrats have no concept of national security!
They view it as an outmoded concept and belongs in the dustbin of history along with white male patriarchy and all the other “evils” they are constantly harping about.

The tricky bit is Robert Hanssen was not a political(Presidential candidate) adversary of a sitting President.

Which makes Hillary even worse than Hanssen.

Democrats view the concept of the Nation State as an outmoded concept. They are Globalists — so “national security” is just meaningless to them.

It’s a staggering comparison/contrast betw Clinton and Hanssen. Of that there can be no doubt. The whole “intent” nuance which is not at all present in the legalese of the espionage statutes is paper thin, in light of the specific
“sensitive information” training HRC rec’d and the pledges she made before assuming office.

It’s infinitely galling that the smartest woman in the world cannot be held accountable for her own gross negligence. But this is actually prehensile to negligence: She was warned, repeatedly. Is/was it plausibly, really the case that nobody was unintimidated by her? Maybe not. Everybody knew with he certainty of a sunrise she would be president.

Interesting that the death penalty is considered part of the formula for treason. Hillary deserves it in spades, more so than Hanssen. Way more.

I have got to think that that is why it is taking so long to get the case together, for her and all those who worked for her. The case against her is YUGE.

Hillary was at the center of the sale of our national security to all the highest bidders. She just didn't do a slimy pokey dance with the Russians like Hanssen. She got EVERYONE involved. EVERYONE had access. And she made them pay for that access. Some with their lives.

What is Donald Trump doing about this?
Tweeting and not acting.

It is easier to indict/prosecute a spy who isn’t a political opponent.

She should take up residence in Florence, CO ... right next to Hanssen. Neither one would have the slightest idea that the other one was there.

Yes - an opponent with a deeply embedded system of traitors designed to cover her and to likewise cover them.

The system being each of the 3-letter agencies that are now exposed.

Sessions and crew have their work cut out for them.

I am wondering if Hillary should be allowed to chose any other option than the stiffest punishment possible.

And that goes for her compadres.

On second thought, maybe Our Lord would like to have the honor.
