The Hillary Clinton email scandal is not simply a scandal. She broke the law and she did it more than once. Will she be prosecuted for it? Judge Napolitano was asked that question and in the end, she could be but it will depend on the prosecutor.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has given us her word that she only destroyed personal emails, but she has refused to turn over her husband’s server. She brazenly wiped the server clean when it was subpoenaed.
Information on Benghazi, the Russian reset and all the other dealings she has been involved in are lost. Communications with her aides, including Huma Abedin, are lost. Possible information about donations to her charity from foreign nations is gone. Schedule information is also gone.
She has clearly broken the law and the public was told to just trust her.
Trey Gowdy is not just trusting her.
House Select Committee on Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy delivered a letter to Hillary Clinton’s lawyers on Friday demanding Clinton hand over her email server to a third party to see what email remains on it even though she said she has wiped the server clean.
“I am formally requesting Secretary Clinton make her server available to a neutral, detached and independent third-party for immediate inspection and review,” Gowdy wrote, adding that the State Department’s Office of Inspector General could be a possible third party to examine the email.
“(S)hould Secretary Clinton continue to maintain that the server and its contents are hers alone, I will inform the Speaker of the House of Representatives so that he can use the full powers of the House to take the necessary steps to protect the best interests of the American people,” Gowdy wrote, according to The Blaze.
The full powers of the House would allow them to arrest her though that is unlikely.
Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer asked Judge Andrew Napolitano Monday morning if Hillary Clinton could be in trouble legally for her recent crimes related to the destruction of her government documents/emails. Judge Napolitano said that she’s in trouble legally if there is a prosecutor who will prosecute her.
The Judge said she broke the law several times and the same laws applied to others should be applied to her.
Hillary Clinton diverted government documents from the government to her husband’s server; she admitted to putting classified information in a non-classified venue which is the same crime as General Petraeus who had them in a drawer; and she admitted to destroying subpoenaed evidence after she was notified it was under subpoena – that’s obstruction of justice.
Hillary Clinton made these judgements instead of the State Department, the Judge said.
Judge Napolitano said this case should be presented to a Grand Jury to let them decide.
Evan Bayh, former Democratic senator from Indiana, said the voter’s won’t care. Judge Napolitano said they will care because the Clintons have acted as if they were above the law for years.
[The server will probably go on fire next and when she testifies, she won’t remember a thing.]
Watch the Judge:
Remember when it was a big deal when Richard Nixon or his secretary allegedly erased 18 1/2 minutes of Watergate Tapes? The entire Watergate scandal was blown well out of proportion but how is it Hillary can erase years of government documents?
It’s so important to the left that they are still trying to retrieve the data from the tapes. Rosemary Woods said she accidentally erased five minutes of the tape.
