The FBI has Hillary's server

I'm thinking the drip-drip-drip is going to open up to a rivulet of scandal.  Fox News: "FBI has Hillary Clinton emails from home server, official says."
The FBI has taken possession of thumb drives containing Hillary Clinton's emails, some of which have been deemed to contain highly sensitive classified information, according to a U.S. official briefed on the matter.
Not just classified but Top Secret:
The inspector general for the Intelligence Community notified senior members of Congress that two of four classified emails discovered on the server Clinton maintained at her New York home contained material deemed to be in one of the highest security classifications – more sensitive than previously known.
And I've noted this before: Hillary was receiving emails from the CIA, NSA, and various intelligence sources that don't even want the public to be aware they exist.  Why wouldn't you automatically assume that these messages were classified?  That's what Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III said: these emails were classified at the time of reception, time of retention, and time of transmission.  Which means that Hillary broke the law:
"Whoever, being an officer, employee, contractor, or consultant of the United States, and, by virtue of his office, employment, position, or contract, becomes possessed of documents or materials containing classified information of the United States, knowingly removes such documents or materials without authority and with the intent to retain such documents or materials at an unauthorized location shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for not more than one year, or both."
Hillary should be in prison.

Since "It's not clear if the device will yield any information — Clinton's attorney said in March that no emails from the main personal address she used while secretary of state still 'reside on the server or on back-up systems associated with the server.'", is there some reason to think that this story means anything other than "so, let's give the impression that the full measure of justice is being applied to this case"?
