Remember that one?  The Borg protagonist from Star Trek. I found them the most annoying, scary of Kirk and friends enemies.  I thought of that when I visited Bam-bam’s old blog.

Hillary’s Mens Rea

July 6th, 20161 comment

No, this isn’t about me be a peeping tom.  Mens Rea is lawyer-speak for State of Mind.  And, that is what got her out of the hot water.  Yes, she stored classified info on her personal mail server.  Yes, she was briefed on how classified info must be protected.
