Petraeus says Clinton being Treated Fairly

In an interview with the Fox Business channel, David Petraeus said he believes Hillary Clinton is being treated fairly by investigators, contrary to “conspiracy theories” coming from both sides.
She’s being treated fairly. And I think that, you know, there are people…there are critics who will claim otherwise. There are supporters actually who will claim otherwise. Both sides are given to fantastical conspiracy theories. I think the debate among them and the treatment actually has been fair. And I think we’ll see how this plays out.
Petraeus was given two years probation and a fine for sharing information with his biographer Paula Broadwell. The case has often been compared to the situation with Hillary Clinton because both cases involve a high profile government appointee and classified information. Another similarity the cases is share is that (so far at least) there is no proof that the mishandling of classified information resulted in that information winding up in the hands of a foreign government. In Petraeus’ case, he showed books of classified information to Broadwell but that information never appeared in her book or anywhere else.
