"He carried such classified materials on his unauthorized media when he traveled off-base in Afghanistan and, ultimately, carried those materials back to the United States at the end of his deployment."Like Clinton, Nishimura admitted to destroying "a large quantity of classified materials."Like Clinton, the FBI investigation into his actions "did not reveal evidence that Nishimura intended to distribute classified information to unauthorized personnel."Unlike Clinton, he was sentenced to two years of probation, a $7,500 fine, and forfeiture of personal media containing classified materials.He was also "ordered to surrender any currently held security clearance and to never again seek such a clearance."[/q[No malicious intent, so why doesn't Comey's argument apply to Nihimura ?QuoteComey argued that based on "the strength of the evidence, especially regarding intent? and how similar situations have been handled in the past," "no reasonable prosecutor" would even consider bringing a case like Clinton's to court.
