  • Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton speaks at the Democratic National Committee summer meeting on August 28, 2015 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Clinton’s case appears to differ markedly from those of other prominent government officials who got in trouble for mishandling classified information, including former CIA director David Petraeus, who gave top secret information to his paramour, and former CIA director John Deutch, who took highly classified material home with him.
