“She was so good at this, she could have taught Richard Nixon some lessons.” That’s how Judge Andrew Napolitano just described Hillary Clinton’s attempt to keep tight control over all of her emails during her tenure as secretary of state — even the emails concerning her official government business.
The Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst appeared on “America’s Newsroom” Monday morning to respond to the news that the private email server on which Mrs. Clinton kept all of her digital communications had been wiped clean. That, argues the judge, could be “obstruction of justice,” given that congressional subpoenas for those emails had been issued prior to their destruction.
Napolitano told host Bill Hemmer that Mrs. Clinton has now admitted to a number of acts which might be considered crimes, but that the former Obama administration official could get away with what she’s done if no one in authority has the “courage” to pursue her.
“None of her crimes will get to first base in terms of prosecution without a prosecutor to pursue them.” The judge added that it will take one thing to bring Hillary’s controversial actions in front of a grand jury — “courage.”
“She’s in trouble legally if there’s a prosecutor with the courage…to prosecute her.”
And even if Mrs. Clinton is not prosecuted, will she suffer political damage because of the emailgate scandal? You can hear Judge Nap’s answer to that key question, as well as his take on Hillary Clinton’s possible criminal misconduct, by clicking on the video above.
