Marine Officer Appeals Dismissal Based on the Hillary Rule

A Marine, who was found guilty of mishandling classified material and who was sentenced to dismissal is appealing the decision based on the fact that if Hillary was innocent, so is he, since his offense was so much smaller hers.  (I saw a meme that shows President Hillary and an ad which says, “Nuclear Launch Codes………Now available on ITunes)  The Marine Corp and the Navy Department have already turned down his appeal.

Maj. Jason Brezler sent an email in 2012, warning the people on the base there about a corrupt police chief there.  Curiously enough Maj Brezler is only one of two servicemen facing discharge over the same police chief.  A soldier beat up the police chief because he was pimping young boys on a US base.  Brezler’s lawyer is now appealing the dismissal based on the fact that if Hillary doesn’t deserve to be punished, neither does Brezler.

From HeatStreet:

Brezler’s attorney, Michael J. Bowe, has said he plans to cite the FBI’s treatment of Clinton “as one of the many, and most egregious examples” of how Brezler’s punishment was unduly harsh, especially given that Brezler’s situation involved “infinitely less sensitive and limited information.”

FBI director James Comey declined to recommend charges against Hillary Clinton, despite his determination that her handling of classified information over an unauthorized private email server was “extremely careless.”

A federal judge is expected to rule on Brezler’s case in October.

Attorney’s for other individuals charges with mishandling classified information are also seizing on Clinton’s case in an effort to win more favorable treatment for their clients.

“By Comey’s wording [about Clinton], now we have a floor as to what constitutes intent that deserves prosecution,” Mark Zaid, a defense attorney for national security whistleblowers, told U.S. News & World Report.
