Judge Andrew Napolitano on Fox News today said that he believed that Hillary Clinton will be charged with a crime over her handling of classified emails.
“She didn’t even do a good job erasing them” Napolitano said, referring to the 33,000 emails that are missing. “Because of the ones she didn’t erase, there are about 300 that are seriously questionable as to whether they contain classified material. Now we know that one of them contains top secret material. And within the top secret category, there are three other markings indicating really really super top – so super top that you can’t discuss it outside a secured environment – a secured room. And this particular email – which was satellite photographs of a Middle Eastern country and intercepts with foreign agents – was in that category.”
The Judge continued, “let’s just say – let’s just hypothetically say that Mrs. Clinton and her associates are indicted on conspiracy to violate the espionage laws of the United States by knowingly letting secrets get out…”
Asked if his gut feeling is that Hillary will be charged, Napolitano said “yes” without hesitation.
“I feel that she’s in serious trouble and she doesn’t recognize it. I can tell you this. The team of FBI investigators and federal prosecutors who are pursuing her, are the highest and the best in the Justice Department. It is absolutely a-political. It’s impervious to political consequences.”
Napolitano spoke highly of the head of the FBI James Comey, who he insisted would not allow the investigation to be politicized by Obama’s corrupt Justice Dept.
The question at this point according to Hannity’s legal experts Kimberly Guilfoyle & Lis Wiehl, isn’t whether or not she’ll be indicted. That’s a given. The question is whether she’ll be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony.
Rudy Giuliani reacted to the shocking report by The Daily Mail that revealed the IT company Hillary Clinton chose to maintain her private email account, was run from a Denver loft apartment with its servers housed in the bathroom closet. He told Hannity that Hillary needs a criminal lawyer.
Via Fox News Insider:
Giuliani said that Clinton should have been under investigation two months ago if the Justice Department was acting honorably and apolitically.
He said that the moment she admitted to destroying or deleting any personal or government records, she should have immediately been subpoenaed.
“She got a political break nobody else would get,” Giuliani stated.
He added that Clinton should get a criminal lawyer, as she has violated multiple statutes, including those relating to conflict of interest and obstruction of justice.
On “Special Report,” Charles Krauthammer said that Hillary is using the same stonewalling tactics that her husband used.
But Dr. K maintained that she will not be able to stonewall on this one because it is out of her hands.
“We will learn about it from the FBI investigators,” Krauthammer said, adding the caveat, if political pressure is not on them and they are allowed to do their jobs. This is the stonewall continued. It worked for her husband, She thinks it will work for her. I doubt it.”
Allahpundit, meanwhile, is under the impression that the Obama/Clinton pow-wow on Martha’s Vineyard is an indication that the fix is in:
Ross Douthat’s new column about Herself’s de facto legal immunity was going live at the NYT website: “While the email scandal is a serious business, I simply do not believe that the Obama Justice Department is going to indict the former secretary of state and Democratic front-runner for mishandling classified information, even if the offenses involved would have sunk a lesser figure’s career or landed her in jail.” This weekend’s photo op ought to confirm that, for the simple reason that Obama wouldn’t allow himself to be seen associating with the Clintons if he thought there was any real chance that the axe might be about to fall on them. As Douthat says, as long as Hillary’s not charged, this whole episode is just another Clinton scandal — dubious, reeking of above-the-law entitlement, but lacking the sort of smoking-gun evidence of willful wrongdoing that would force prosecutors to indict her. If anything, her supporters will enjoy the spectacle of her and Bill outfoxing those darned right-wingers again. What better evidence of Hillary’s qualifications for the presidency is there than her cunning in evading consequences for her corruption?
I wish Allahpundit were right. It would be good for Republicans if Hillary is the candidate in 2016. She’s the weakest candidate out the Dems’ weak and pathetic line-up.
But alas, she is almost certainly going down.
