Fields on Clinton's Handling of Classified Information

Shannon Fields has posted Intent or Gross Negligence: Hillary Clinton Should Be Charged Under 18 U.S.C. § 793 for Mishandling Classified Information (Regent University Law Review, Vol. 30, No. 1, 2017-2018) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
The Department of Justice failed to pursue justice when it decided not to file charges against Hillary Clinton regarding her private e-mail server. Congress created a statute that encompasses the mishandling of classified information through both willful intent and gross negligence to hold government officials to the oath they swore, which is to protect our nation’s secrets. Hillary Clinton’s acts were precisely what Congress intended to curb, and the lack of charges reveals a hole in our justice system that must be filled.
