It amazes me how Obama’s Department of Justice will go after a war-decorated hero and former Navy SEAL Team 6 member like Matt Bissonnette when it comes to any “wrongdoings” or speculation of “classified information,” but then do absolutely NOTHING when it comes to HIllary Clinton and her private email server who actually had classified information. When it comes to “classified information,” Obama, his administration and Clinton have one standard and “we the people” and our military have another standard.
Seal Team 6 member, Matt Bissonnette, known under the pen name as Mark Owen, wrote “No Easy Day” a book about his personal account of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. He was inspired to write the book after reading Rogue Warrior, by Vietnam veteran and SEAL Team 6 founder Richard “Dick” Marcinko. But Bissonnette made one BIG mistake. He didn’t go through the proper channels to have his material for his book cleared by the Department of Defense. Now, he’s paying a pretty penny for that mistake.
H/T American Thinker:
Matt Bissonnette, a former member of Navy SEAL Team 6 who wrote an account of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, agreed on Friday to forfeit $6.8 million in book royalties and speaking fees and apologized for failing to clear his disclosures with the Pentagon, according to federal court documents.
Mr. Bissonnette also recently forfeited $180,000 in fees for consulting work that he did for military contractors while he was still on the SEAL team[.] …
If approved by a federal judge in Alexandria, Va., the royalty settlement would bring an end to more than two years of civil and criminal investigations into Mr. Bissonnette, who won several awards for valor in Iraq and Afghanistan before writing “No Easy Day,” his best-selling book on the Bin Laden raid, under the pen name Mark Owen.
There you have it folks! Obama and the Department of Justice want to make sure Navy SEAL Team 6 member Matt Bissonnette pays the price for possibly disclosing “classified information”. What’s that price? Matt has to return his royalties of $6.8 million from the book “No Easy Way” and speaking fees, pay back the bulk in 4 years, pay at least $100,000 in the next 30 days and apologize for his “wrongdoings”.
On the other hand, then Secretary of State Clinton used a private email server which WAS found to have classified information AND she skates…or is it waddles? Seems to me, there’s a different standard for Clinton than Mr. Bissonnette. Isn’t there? Clinton has a mile-long trail of corruption behind her…but no worries, after all, the DemocRATS have to get her elected and don’t have time to worry about such nonsense or small “pettiness” as a private email server with classified information. But…SHE LIED! about it!
Let me just refresh your memory…
Let’s examine shall we? First, we have Clinton’s private email server. Clinton received and sent classified information. Information was marked “classified”. Clinton used multiple devices during her time in office as Secretary of State. Thousands of work-related emails were not returned, many were even removed or deleted. All of these facts and others were shared by FBI Director Comey in public and Hillary Clinton was found to be “extremely careless”!
But wait…that’s NOT the WORST of it! Not by far!
Then, you have all the Clinton “pay-for-play” schemes, followed by organizations and countries paying Bill Clinton, even as much as $750,000 for a single 20-minute speech, and then, Secretary Clinton awarding contracts or deals to those same organizations or countries following those speeches, followed by a wonderful donation to the Clinton Foundation. BUT the Justice Department finds NO FAULT with these actions? Seriously?!!!
For all the clueless people in the world who are remotely still thinking of voting for Hillary Clinton for President, I advise those of you reading this article to buy a copy of “Clinton Cash” or watch it for free here and educate yourself and the sheeple. These sheeple or low-information voters need to know about Ambassador Joe Wilson in Sudan, Lukas Lundin in the Congo, Gilbert Chagoury, Haiti and the Relief Project, Denis O’Brien and Dalberg, Digicel, VCS Mining and Tony Rodham, Keystone XL Pipeline and TD Bank, Ericsson and Iran Telecommunications, Colombia and Frank Giustra, Arman Singh and India’s Nuclear Deal, and Russian’s Vladmir Putin and Uranium One, which helped Russia, who now owns 20% of the uranium in America. Hard to imagine, but this is only the short-list of Hillary’s “pay-for-play” schemes.
The list goes on and on. There is a mile-long trail of trash that follows the Clinton “pay-for-play” schemes. “FOLLOW THE MONEY”! The scenarios are all the same.
These schemes began with a favor or need by a foreign government, followed by speeches by Bill Clinton who was handsomely rewarded, followed by a donation to the Clinton Foundation, and followed up, by then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who granted or rewarded contracts to those same foreign governments or organizations. If THAT’S NOT corrruption at it’s finest, I don’t know what is!
But never mind that! Obama’s Justice Department is too busy prosecuting and winning a case against a former Navy Seal Team 6 member, Mr. Bissonnette, who helped to kill Osama bin Laden, so they can collect the $6.8 million in royalties from a book because it may have had some “classified information”. Go figure!
Oh, but don’t worry…President Obama endorsed Hillary Clinton as our next POTUS and had these kind words to say…“I don’t think there’s ever been someone so qualified to hold this office,”
Please excuse me while I go puke!
