> The media did not steal the documents.
In at least one known case, a thing of value (sexual favors) was traded for classified information, on a regular basis.
That’s not journalism, that’s espionage. A journalist can receive classified info free and clear, but buying it is a whole ‘nother ballgame.
In that case, they could be prosecuted, then. And if the Rosenbergs fried for espionage, so theoretically could they. But Aldritch Ames is still getting fat in jail. Personally, I don’t have as much animus for the media as I do for Hillary. She clearly was using her office as SOS to traffic in state secrets. She clearly obstructed justice by erasing incriminating e-mails. She is clearly still sowing discord and undermining the government, which is typical of spies. Hang the bitch.
