Fox News is reporting that the FBI is expanding the probe of the Hillary Clinton emails and just launched an independent classification review.
It seems that agents are now exploring “whether multiple statements violate a federal false statements statute, according to intelligence sources familiar with the ongoing case.”
U.S. Code 18, Section 1001 pertains to “materially false” statements and agents are now looking at Hillary Clinton’s details of the email debacle that surround that code.
Violations include pressuring third parties to “conspire in a cover-up” and are subject to five years in prison each.
The FBI is also looking at possible violations of the Espionage Act relating to “gross negligence”
Fox News also reports that Judge Andrew Napolitano points out that this is what got Martha Stewart in trouble with the FBI and sent to prison.
Will she go to prison? Probably unlikely!
But the ramifications for the election cycle are huge!
They place her again on the defensive after recent analysis that she made it through the congressional hearings basically unscathed.
Bernie Sanders just recently began to attack Hillary Clinton on the issue.
While his statements at the Democrat debate were a bit veiled and misunderstood, he clarified saying, “If her email practices foiled public-records requests or compromised classified information, those are “valid questions.”
Looks like the Ol’ Bern has a good reason to “up the ante'” as he continues to get closer to Hillary Clinton in the polls.
The scandal has grown exponentially since March when Hillary Clinton told us that as secretary of state, she had “opted for convenience” in the way she handled the nations most vital communications.
“I thought it would be easier to carry just one device” Hillary Clinton said.
(It really isn’t… I often use two hand held devices simultaneously and the pros WAY outweigh the cons…)
But that is beside the point!!! You can have multiple email accounts on one device!!!
Do we really want a President who doesn’t have the ability to multitask?
The Clinton’s have been one scandal after another for decades. Even long before Arkansas, Hillary Clinton and possible future “First Lad Bill” were stirring up dust.
Whitewater,Troopergate, Paula Jones, Monica Lewinsky,Vince Foster, Huma…do we need to go on?
“But..But…what difference does it make?”
