The fact is, he had 2 choices - to tarnish Clinton so Trump could win the election or otherwise to let Clinton win. You know when Trump is their candidate, what he would do.

This is just a cover up show when the rigged election was too evident.



The FBI and the CIA ask me on what board you are posting now.  So IF there someone is knocking at your door.  Good luck!!

I am having all kinds of issues with this new term "intent".

It's not a new term. 

Quote:
People are arrested, charged and convicted on a daily basis that could claim they had no intent to break the law therefore they shouldn't be prosecuted.

And do this quite frequently actually.

Quote:
Even homicide is covered by this whole intent thing.  You can kill someone with ZERO intent and still be charge, tried and convicted of some type of homicide.

There are several types of charges for killing someone. For example, involuntary manslaughter. Intent has a great to with what you're charged with and what you may be found guilty of. If you had no intent to kill someone you can even be found not guilty.

Quote:
Intent here seems to also be utilized in place of knowledge, as in "they did not know they were breaking the law therefore there was no crime"...

Ignorance of the law has been a defense against crimes.  Even an absolutist like Thomas Hobbes recognized ignorance could be an excuse.

hmm...

I am having all kinds of issues with this new term "intent".   People are arrested, charged and convicted on a daily basis that could claim they had no intent to break the law therefore they shouldn't be prosecuted.

I doubt that the number of people who call up a buddy and say "Hey you got anything going on tonight?  I was thinking we could go out and do some drunk driving, wanna go?", is very large is existent.

Even homicide is covered by this whole intent thing.  You can kill someone with ZERO intent and still be charge, tried and convicted of some type of homicide.

Intent here seems to also be utilized in place of knowledge, as in "they did not know they were breaking the law therefore there was no crime"..

A long standing precept in the justice system is ignorance of the law is no excuse.

Searching for "convicted of emailing classified information" yields several cases that are eerily similar in nature except someone is serving time.


https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mens_rea

There is a difference between intent and ignorance of the law.

It's not the place of the investigating authority to decide such matters, it's for the jury

This really is elementary stuff, guys.
  

Under Capitalism, Man exploits Man.

Under Communism, it's the exact opposite.
