Could Hillary Clinton still be facing some extreme legal problems, even though the campaign season is over and her opponent was victorious? If the latest information released by the FBI can be trusted, she has reason to worry.
Fox News’ Judge Andrew Napolitano appeared Monday night on Lou Dobbs Tonight to argue that the latest FBI document dump is the “smoking gun” in the case against Hillary Clinton.
Lou Dobbs: “The questions arise, why weren’t they released? Why did the FBI director have such a struggle — a hamlet act — that persisted over a number of months? This evidence, makes it clear, his last judgment on the matter of prosecution was utterly in error, does it not?”
Judge Andrew Napolitano: “You’re absolutely correct. This is the smoking gun if ever there was one. This ramps up the case for her prosecution to the point where, ironically, it may also ramp up the case for President Obama to issue her a pardon and to take this off of Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions’ desks. If he doesn’t do that, the pressure from the AG from the FBI agents who conducted the investigation, who probably posted this stuff last night during the Giants Packers game, will make it very difficult for him to resist. ”
What is the “smoking gun?” A series of just released emails proves that the FBI and the State Department were indeed arguing about how the documents being reviewed should be classified. Officials at the State Department were shown to be pressuring the FBI to change classification levels on her emails, after the fact. The emails also prove that the FBI were “forum shopping” or looking for a favorable opinion on the classification issue by asking different government officials to rate emails as unclassified.
Things continue to grow ever-more challenging for Mrs. Clinton, and the question now is whether or not President Obama will choose to issue her a pardon with the short time he has left, or leave her fate in the hands of President-elect Trump?
