Judge Napolitano: Hillary Facing Perfect Legal Storm Over Emails

The bad legal news for Hillary Clinton continued to cascade upon her presidential hopes during the past week in what has amounted to a perfect storm of legal misery.

Here is what happened..

Last week, Mrs. Clinton's five closest advisers when she was Secretary of State — four of whom remain close to her and have significant positions in her presidential campaign —were interrogated by the FBI.

These interrogations were voluntary, not under oath, and done in the presence of the same legal team which represented all five aides.

The atmosphere was confrontational, as the purpose of the interrogations is to enable federal prosecutors and investigators to determine whether these five are targets or witnesses. Stated differently, the feds need to decide if they should charge any of these folks as part of a plan to commit espionage, or if they will be witnesses on behalf of the government should there be such a prosecution; or witnesses for Mrs. Clinton.

In the same week, a federal judge ordered the same five persons to give videotaped testimony in a civil lawsuit against the State Department which once employed them in order to determine if there was a "conspiracy" — that's the word used by the judge — in Mrs. Clinton's office to evade federal transparency laws. Stated differently, the purpose of these interrogations is to seek evidence of an agreement to avoid the Freedom of Information Act requirements of storage and transparency of records, and whether such an agreement, if it existed, was also an agreement to commit espionage — the removal of state secrets from a secure place to a non-secure place.

There's much more analysis here..

Ms. Clinton is going to find herself in a world of hurt here. And because of her continuous denials, many will believe senility has set in for the long haul.

The facts are this:
1. She knew she broke the law by setting up an off-site server with minimal (if any) security to ensure it was hacker-free.
2. She knew emails were classified. Whether or not the 'stamp' was removed is immaterial. She was Secretary of State. She knew by the virtue of the contents, it was highly classified and chose to ignore it.
3. Ironically, too much coincidence reigns true. When people made donations to the Clinton Foundation, they all of the sudden got favorable nods from the State Department. Quid pro quo anyone?
4. Russia has confirmed to have 20K emails, which they are debating the release. Just the fact that they have them, proves her server was not secure. Let alone that Guiffer has come forth and verified that 10 other IPs were active on the server - all from other countries.
5. There's been so many nefarious 'deals' by the Clintons pre, during and post Clinton's 90s reign; it's just too much to list here. Go watch Clinton Cash, read the Clinton's War Against Women, and 13 Hours.

This is only the tip of a huge iceberg that's about to bring Clinton's Titanic down to a screeching halt.

Personally, I hope she stays in the race for the WH because it will be hilarious to see her fail to secure it. Also, knowing Trump will bring her criminally accountable will also make the Watergate 'trials' look like a Sunday Brunch at the Atlantic Hotel.

Should prove to be a very interesting election cycle. Wish we could get past the primary and get to the real race. MSM will have so much propaganda sloshing about it, it will make the Third Reich's propaganda machine look like TMZ.
