Fox News senior legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano speculated there could be a serious storm brewing in Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s future, and the timing couldn’t be worse.
He referred to a possibly incriminating email Clinton failed to release to the State Department that was of “critical importance.”
The judge appeared on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings With Maria,” where he explained that the email in question was from Clinton aide Huma Abedin to the then-secretary of state and her inner circle. It said that they had been hacked and that technology staffers were temporarily disabling State Department security features to accommodate Clinton’s private server.
Napolitano said the disclosure was a contradiction of Clinton’s persistent claims that she never jeopardized national security secrets, not to mention the fact that she claimed her emails were never hacked.
He also said that Clinton’s credibility regarding the fact that she had released all of her work-related emails was at stake, adding that U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan asked that Clinton swear “under penalty of perjury” that she had handed over all her governmental emails to the State Department.
“That is a code phrase for ‘I think you’re lying to me,’” Napolitano said.
Clinton claimed she deleted the email before the formal request to turn over any emails was made. Yeah, right. There probably aren’t too many people willing to believe that anymore.
Clinton’s failure to surrender this email could add perjury to an already“overwhelming” case, Napolitano said, which could lead to an indictment for espionage, conspiracy and obstruction of justice.
Napolitano added that if the Justice Department chooses not to indict Clinton, many FBI investigators and Justice Department prosecutors could resign and leak details of the investigation — just ahead of the Democrat National Convention.
“If FBI agents resign and leak on the eve of the election or the eve of the DNC, does President (Barack) Obama have a Watergate-like Saturday Night Massacre on his hands?” Napolitano said, referring to 1973, when Richard Nixon fired a special prosecutor and his attorney general resigned during the Watergate scandal.
Any rebellion from the FBI or Justice Department officials could crush Clinton’s presidential hopes.
Watch Napolitano’s remarks below:
This email is only more evidence of what we’ve already known about Clinton for quite some time — that she cannot be trusted.
