WHERE IS THE SAME OUTRAGE AND SENSE OF URGENCY TO REPLACE OUR OUTMODED ESPIONAGE LAWS AS THERE WAS IN ATTACKING HILLARY CLINTON?

Secretary Hillary Clinton’s Email usage at the State Department, as well as that of several close staff members, was insanely dangerous to our National Security!  But, the Nation itself has also been grossly at fault!  Neither party appears to have even suggested writing new legislation–even now–to replace the Espionage Act of 1917 and the Sedition Act of 1918.   Those were the outdated laws, which were often cited during the blatantly-political House Oversight Committee Hearings, regarding the Clinton Email

During World War I, the 1917 Law declared it illegal to discourage draftees from reporting for military service; and the 1918 Law made it illegal to voice Anti-War Opinions, or to obstruct the sale of War Bonds. But, consider the facts: the U.S. has not had a Military Draft since Vietnam in the early 1970s; War has not been declared since December of 1941; and the Nation has not issued War Bonds since World War II. Furthermore, neither of those Acts are relevant to the accusations against Secretary Clinton during her tenure at the State Department!.

The ancient Espionage and Sedition Acts are certainly incapable of protecting America in today’s Digital Age.  Where is a commensurate outrage and activities to replace those World War I Laws?
