Fox News senior legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano believes there could be a big storm brewing in Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s future and it couldn’t be timed better.
He referred to an potentially 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 said the email in question was from Clinton aide Huma Abedin to the then-Secretary of State and her inner circle. It said they were hacked and that technology staffers were temporarily disabling State Department security features to accommodate Clinton’s private server.
Napolitano says that disclosure contradicted Clinton’s claim of never jeopardizing national security secrets or the fact that she claimed her emails were never hacked.
He also said 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 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 said she deleted the email before the formal request to turn over any emails were made.
Clinton’s failure to give up this email could add perjury to her case, Napolitano said, which could lead to her indictment for espionage, conspiracy and the obstruction of justice.
Napolitano also said that if the Justice Department chose to not indict Clinton, many FBI investigators and Justice Department prosecutors could resign and leak details – just before 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 FBI or Justice Department rebellion could crush Clinton’s chances at becoming president.
This email is just one more piece of evidence in a long list of reasons why Clinton cannot be trusted.
