Kane, Clinton display similar strategies
Regarding attorney Gerald Shargel’s innocent memory lapse excuse, as noted in the editorial “The Kane Chronicles: Memory slacker?” : This is the same excuse Hillary Clinton is using for her ‘memory lapse’ regarding her use of a personal email server and her signing a document that required her to keep classified information secret.
Kane’s attorney, Mr. Shargel, would have the public “cut her (Kathleen Kane) a little slack”. You state: “It now will be up to a jury to decide if Kathleen Kane’s memory lapse was one of innocence, one of convenience or one of contrivance.” So too, are Clinton’s attorneys and handlers attempting to frame her actions as innocent mistakes.
You failed to raise considerations regarding professional training, duty and responsibility, let alone personal ethics and morality. Both Kane and Clinton are trained attorneys at law and can be presumed to know that legal proceedings and secret and/or classified information is at least confidential and should not be compromised.
As legal experts, they can be presumed to know what they’ve signed – especially legal & government documents. As individuals who have earned law
degrees both Kane and Clinton must bear full responsibility for their acts. There is no memory lapse, there is no slack! The full weight of the law
must be applied just as it would be applied to non-public persons.
