Herridge: Whistleblowers Call Out Double Standard in Hillary's Email Scandal
Today, intel whistleblowers and the wife of an imprisoned whistleblower held a press conference to highlight the glaring double standards between their situations and Hillary Clinton’s server scandal. They claim they lost their careers and life savings for doing just a fraction of what Clinton did.
Catherine Herridge reported on "Hannity" that CIA whistleblower Jeffrey Sterling was sentenced earlier this year to three and a half years in prison for violating the Espionage Act for giving information about Iran to a New York Times reporter.
Herridge said that Sterling was also convicted on obstruction of justice charges because a single email was missing from his account.
She added that former NSA official Thomas Drake was indicted in 2010 under the Espionage Act for sharing unclassified information with a Baltimore Sun reporter.
"Compare that to the Clinton emails, more than 400 containing classified information on her personal, unsecured server," Herridge said.
She noted that Clinton's go-to explanation is that nothing on her server was marked classified, but the Drake and Sterling cases show that's no excuse under the law.
Herridge said it doesn't matter how emails are labeled. The content is what matters.
"The question is, will the law be applied in a universal way, and that there's not a double standard, sort of a law for the common guy and then a law for the politically elite, like Mrs. Clinton?"
