Powers: 'Hard to Imagine' Obama DOJ Actually Investigating Hillary's Emails
Ed Henry reported on "Outnumbered" this afternoon about the latest twists and turns in the private email saga involving Hillary Clinton, following a new report by The New York Times.
The paper has been called out for quietly editing its article about a possible criminal investigation of Clinton.
The Times reports that "two inspectors general have asked the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation into whether sensitive government information was mishandled in connection with" Clinton's private emails.
Politico and others pointed out that the original version stated a criminal investigation was requested "into whether Hillary Rodham Clinton mishandled sensitive government information on a private email account she used as secretary of state."
Henry reported, citing a source familiar with the investigation, that the DOJ is looking at whether classified information was mishandled, which could lead to criminal charges down the road.
He said the DOJ confirmed that it is looking into the emails, but was not given a "criminal referral."
The Clinton campaign maintains that any sensitive information on the emails was deemed classified "after the fact." Clinton said previously that she never sent emails containing classified info on her private server.
Kirsten Powers reacted to the latest reports, saying she finds it hard to believe that the Obama Justice Department is going to seriously go after the former First Lady.
"It's hard to imagine [this] Justice Department actually investigating her. If they do investigate her, I suspect that they will find out that she didn't do anything wrong," she said.
Powers questioned why the campaign keeps saying that it's not Clinton herself that is under investigation.
"Well, who is it then? She's the one who sent the emails. ... It's your personal email server, so you are the one under investigation," said Powers.
