Why can't Hillary Control work?
Famed Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax TV on Thursday that the Justice Department's disclosure that Hillary Clinton broke no laws in using a private email account proved that "legally, she was always in the clear."
"The law requires that you have to know that what you're doing is illegal, there has to have been classification notifications," he said. "She was right when she said that there was nothing illegal about what she did at the time she did it and nothing that she had on her email was marked classified.
"That doesn't mean it was good judgment," Dershowitz cautioned. "She's now acknowledged that she wished she hadn't done it. But the case is over as a legal case for all intents and purposes.
"She was never the target of any investigation. What she did was entirely legal," he added. "Now, the public has the right to judge her on whether what she did was right or wrong as a matter of judgment, whether she'd done enough to apologize.
"To indict, you have to show that it was marked 'classified,' not that later on it became classified," he told "Newsmax Prime" host John Bachman. "I think everybody agrees that, as far as we know, there have been no emails that have been marked classified."

I wonder what that means for the public corruption and influence pedaling aspects of the investigation?
Where did Dersh get his info?
In an interview the following day on Local 10 News, he said, “I kept my underwear on during the massage.”
Dershowitz said he received one massage at Epstein’s house “from a woman in her 40s. I think her name was Olga. I called my wife after getting the massage. It was an unpleasant experience. I’ve always acknowledged I had one massage. I said that from day one.”

I've always understood that ignorance of the law is not a valid legal excuse. Been that way since I was a wee one.
Did that change?

How about we get scumbag politicians like hillary out of office then lets talk about addressing issue of governance and economics.
No sense to try to fix the govt while its being run by
people[CREATURES] full of scandals, lies, and conflict of interest.

Dersh says that if she didn't know and it wasn't marked then she can't be accused of the crime.
