Judge Nap: FBI Director's Answer on Hillary Emails Is 'Very Significant'
Hillary Clinton has sought to downplay in recent weeks the FBI's investigation into her private email server and the possibility that she could face an indictment.
She has maintained that the FBI is simply carrying out a routine "security inquiry" into her email server.
But FBI Director James Comey seemed to push back on Mrs. Clinton's statements in a briefing with reporters yesterday.
Fox News chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge quoted Comey as saying, "I don't even know what that means, a security inquiry. We do investigations here at the FBI."
Comey reiterated there is no timeline for the probe to be completed and that there is no "special set of rules" for anyone under FBI investigation.
Judge Andrew Napolitano reacted this morning on Fox Business Network, saying it's very obvious that the former First Lady is trying to portray the situation to be something that it's not.
The judge pointed out that last week, the Justice Department called the email probe a "law enforcement proceeding" in a separate legal filing.
"The FBI only investigates violations of criminal laws. They don't investigate violations of civil wrongs. It's pretty obvious what they're doing," he said.
Napolitano predicted that Mrs. Clinton will be interviewed by the FBI before Memorial Day, explaining that the bureau is clearly at the "tail-end" of the probe.
