An Outrageous Plea Agreement

Clinton Administration shenanigans now span 13 years

It seems the permanent campaign has become the permanent cover-up:
....Mr. Berger insisted that he had removed the classified material inadvertently. But in the plea agreement reached with prosecutors, he is expected to admit that he intentionally removed copies of five classified documents, destroyed three and misled staff members at the National Archives when confronted about it, according to an associate of Mr. Berger's who is involved in his defense but who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the plea has not been formalized in court. (Emphasis mine.)
How can anyone consider this a misdemeanor? Especially when it concerns the worst attack America has ever experienced? And after three years, he could conceivably be in a position to do this again! Unbelievable.

Here's hoping this utterly outrageous plea deal is never finalized in court.

Hindrocket, Michelle Malkin and Captain Ed have more.

Update: More here, including this:
The terms of Berger's agreement required him to acknowledge to the Justice Department the circumstances of the episode. Rather than misplacing or unintentionally throwing away three of the five copies he took from the archives, as the former national security adviser earlier maintained, he shredded them with a pair of scissors late one evening at the downtown offices of his international consulting business
