As the country learned that nothing would become of a longtime investigation into Hillary Clinton’s misuse of email during her time as Secretary of State, top level Georgia Republican leaders began to react with a nearly effortless mix of disgust and anger. That’s when former Congressman Jack Kingston, who currently serves as one of the heads of the state GOP’s fundraising arm, perfectly laid out the root of conservative anger on the issue. Now, his reaction is going viral on social media.
The FBI investigation found:
+ 110 emails in 52 email chains that contained classified information at the time that they were sent
+ 8 chains of emails that contained information which was considered “Top Secret”
+ 36 email chains that held information considered “secret”
+ 8 other email chains that held “confidential” information
+ The investigation also uncovered about 2,000 emails which were related to Clinton’s work as Secretary of State but they had been deleted earlier and not turned over to the State Department by Clinton.
Yet no charges filed. Unreal.
Other Georgia Republicans weighed in on the law enforcement agency’s decision.
Congressman Doug Collins said that the FBI’s announcement suggests that Clinton is above the law, and called on the agency to reverse their decision.
“Unfortunately, the FBI’s announcement today that indicates that Secretary Clinton is receiving special treatment due to political pressures,” Collins said. “Secretary Clinton’s actions were irresponsible and reckless and jeopardize our national security. If another government official did the same thing, they would be charged and thrown in jail. For the FBI to simply turn away from this matter shows how politicized this Administration has become – Secretary Clinton has become untouchable even to the highest levels of law enforcement.”
Meanwhile, the Georgia Republican Party is using anger against the situation as a rallying cry for GOP voters to support Donald Trump in November.
“Unfortunately, our elected officials behave more like Chicago mobsters than public servants,” said GAGOP Chairman John Padgett. “We need an outsider like Donald Trump who can restore accountability, integrity, and confidence in the federal government. We need real leadership and real consequences for those who endanger our country for the sake of political expediency.”
