Michael Scheuer, former CIA bin Laden unit chief, reports to readers, “Mrs. Clinton’s unencrypted e-mail communications were stolen by all of America’s enemies—Russia, China, Israel, Iran, probably the Islamic State, etc.”
For each of these foreign governments it would be singularly unproductive to use this great, once-in-a-lifetime intelligence asset before the presidential election. Foreign leaders would gain little but the acute embarrassment of Mrs. Clinton and the outgoing Obama regime from pre-election publishing in either their domestic media or via leaks to Western journalists.
The impact of pre-election publication, moreover, might cost Mrs. Clinton the presidency and she is—far and away—the favorite candidate of the Russians, Chinese, Israelis, and Iranians precisely because they each have stolen her communications and can use them to compromise her in the very same Oval Office that played host to feminist-hero Bill’s suborning of a young female intern.
