Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign is spiraling downward amid more key revelations Wednesday. Judge Andrew Napolitano, appearing on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show, disclosed that contents of Clinton’s e-mails from her private server included sensitive classified information.
Napolitano’s allegations are nuclear-grade political material with the serious possibility of ending Clinton’s campaign, and might even result in jail time. “I saw emails that have been revealed under the Freedom of Information Act,” said Napolitano. “And in them, she is discussing the location of French fighter jets during the NATO bombardment of Libya, how big the no fly zone is, where the no fly zones are, and are you ready for this? – the location of Ambassador Stevens, who of course was murdered, in Libya.”
This bombshell ties Clinton directly to the deaths in Benghazi and, as the Judge noted, Hillary can no longer deny that she had no classified information on her private server. In fact, investigators had already determined that 10% of the e-mails they’d examined as a random sample contained information that was classified at the time the e-mails were sent.
This new information comes on the heels of a New York Post report that the FBI’s probe of Mrs. Clinton’s e-mails is in fact a criminal investigation. Previous reports stated that the FBI investigation was merely a fact-finding mission.
“The DOJ [Department of Justice] and FBI can conduct civil investigations in very limited circumstances,” said the Post’s anonymous source. “In this case, a security violation would lead to criminal charges. Maybe DOJ is trying to protect her campaign.”
As we have previously reported, the Clintons as a couple have been extraordinarily lax in security during their time in the national spotlight. Bill Clinton had many of his salacious phone calls with Monica Lewinsky recorded by international intelligence agencies, and the Secret Service detail assigned to the couple routinely bends the rules for Bill’s paramours.
For her part, Hillary proved incapable of juggling her private e-mails and classified e-mails from legally mandated separate servers. Instead of using the secure White House servers, Mrs. Clinton maintained her own server in the Clintons’ Chappaqua home. Her personal server went down shortly after the Benghazi attacks, leaving her State Department aids in the dark as to her orders.
With experts of all stripes, including former CIA director Michael Morrell, pointing out the obvious vulnerability of a private server in a private house, Clinton appears to be facing a long uphill legal battle. As Napolitano pointed out: “What Mrs. Clinton did, by transferring and moving classified information through a non-classified venue, that’s a felony for each piece of information she passed through.”
While Bill earned a reputation as a Teflon president, Hillary seems increasingly to be a thoroughly sticky surface.
