He didn't rob a bank, steal a car, sucker punch an elderly person in some town for kicks, no, he was fighting bad guys. Let me say it again, he was doing what he was trained to do. Then some “person”(honestly that’s all I could call them without having people reading this cringe and close the article because I dropped a few “F” bombs) decided to call out how he supposable sent a classified document in the open.
