Proving that they are little more than a political arm of the current administration, the FBI arrested a former NSA contractor on accusations that he stole and shared classified information.
The former government contractor, Hal Martin, was secretly arrested weeks ago. According to the Blaze, he was arrested for being in possession of classified “source code” that has been used to hack into computer systems used by Iran, North Korea, Russia and China.
If the FBI is going to make a case against the former government contractor they will now have to prove that his “intent.” The new standard was set forth by the FBI when they gave Hillary Clinton a free pass for breaking the law by transmitting and receiving classified information over her private server as well as allowing classified information to pass through the hands of people without the proper clearance.
Despite the fact that Clinton broke the law, destroyed evidence and lied about it, the FBI decided not to pursue a case against her because they believe she didn’t intend to break the law.
Martin’s lawyers released a statement that shows they potentially plan to argue his case by using the new Hillary Clinton standard. “We have not seen any evidence,” the statement reads, “But what we know is that Hal Martin loves his family and his country. There is no evidence that he intended to betray his country.”
