Reality Check: WH Leaker Faces Bleak Outlook Deserved by Hillary

A National Security Agency contractor has been charged by the Department of Justice for allegedly removing and mailing classified information detailing Russian hacking during the 2016 election. And there's an awkward parallel the mainstream media will likely ignore: This crime, allegedly committed by Reality Winner (yes, that's her real name), differs little, if at all, from Hillary Clinton's email scandal.

"Here's a low-level person without political clout," Mike Broomhead said, filling in for Glenn on radio Tuesday. "I believe she deserves to be punished for what she did. But . . . how is it any different [from Hillary]?"

Hillary's transgressions took place digitally, seemingly out of negligence or laziness. Winner's appear to be intentional --- and naive. She printed her source material. Beyond that there's really no difference. Well, except one which Winner will soon learn if she's found guilty. It's good to have friends in high places.

MIKE: When it comes to this White House leaker, if there is somebody that has a top secret clearance working inside the White House, and they're removing documents and sending them out, she got arrested. But here's an interesting point about this. How is this any different from what Hillary Clinton did with her emails? And there's a point here that we all have to realize. Hillary Clinton did it digitally, but it's no different.

I've told the story 20 times. There's a room, a top secret room called a skiff. And that is where people, when there is something top secret, for someone with a clearance to read, they are notified that there are documents for you in the skiff. You then go in. You leave all of your electronic devices outside. There's no recording devices. No cellphones. No anything.

You sign into the room. You read your documents. You can't take pictures. You can't make copies. You can't do anything. And you certainly can't remove those documents from that room.

Well, then, if you do that, you're violating the law. Well, what was the difference with what Hillary Clinton did with her emails? She took what were classified documents on an unsecure server and sent them to other people. How is it any different? Except this girl had an agenda. This girl was politically motivated to leak information. But there's no difference in walked out of a room, walking out of the skiff with a hard piece of paper or digitally sending something on an unsecure server that shouldn't be sent on an unsecure server.

And so the difference here being, here's a low-level person without political clout. I believe she deserves to be punished for what she did. But what -- how is it any different? I hope that there's a legal expert that can explain to me the difference of exposing those documents, as someone who pulled them out of the skiff and walked down the hallway with them and set them on a desk, or someone that digitally transfers those very same kind of documents to people on an unsecure server.

Whose hands it ends up in doesn't matter as much, as the danger you put national security interests in.

Crimes or Cover-Up? Exposing the World’s Most Dangerous Lie

COVID-19 changed everything. The way we live our lives, how we operate our businesses, how we see each other. And now, the federal government is sinking its tendrils even deeper, threatening the fabric not only of our bodily autonomy, but of the republic.

Our American way of life may never be the same. To save it, we must understand the key fundamentals of the pandemic that transfigured our society into the nightmare it is today. What is the COVID-19 origin story? Who are its top players in government and science, pulling the strings? What was their REAL response in the first days of the pandemic? The answers to these questions are frightening.

Emails, documents, and federal contracts tell a dark story that is still dominating our lives. It's time to cast a light on the shocking truth. Because only with the truth can we emerge from the darkness of this "pandemic" and take back the liberty stolen from us.

This is Glenn Beck's most important chalkboard of his life. And the most pivotal time in yours.
