Judge Andrew Napolitano tonight weighed in on the revelation that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton conducted all government business on her personal email account.
“She’s in a lot of trouble legally,” he said.
If Clinton retained classified emails on her personal account and server, Napolitano said she arguably violated a statute which prohibits retaining classified information in a non-governmental, non-secure way – a misdemeanor charge.
Clinton also faces a potential felony if she knowingly and willfully destroyed or concealed government records, Napolitano said. The felony is punishable by up to three years in jail and disqualification from holding public office in the future.
The State Department claims that Clinton did not send or receive classified information on her personal account. Megyn Kelly asked Napolitano: what are the odds of that?
“In my view, it would be inconceivable,” Napolitano said. “I don’t know how she could do her job because she had the highest security clearance there is.”
