Gen. Petraeus pleaded guilty … what Hillary did was worse, Judge Nap says

Likely 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton may potentially face two criminal investigations that could result in prison time if she were found to have hidden documents from government computers.

That’s according to Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano.

“This is beyond extraordinary and beyond dangerous,” he said Thursday on America’s Newsroom. “This is potentially criminal.”

Napolitano compared Clinton using a private server in her home to the circumstances that led to General David Petraeus pleading guilty to mishandling classified information.

“The general agreed to plead guilty for keeping classified secrets in a non-secure, non-government-approved venue — in the general’s case, a desk drawer in his home,” he said. “In Mrs Clinton’s case, the server in her home, non-government secured and non-government approved, classified secrets there, that is a misdemeanor.”

Pointing to Clinton’s security clearance level, Napolitano said she “must have had classified secrets.”

“But the other problem that she faces is far more serious,” he said. “And that is a conspiracy to deflect documents, to conceal documents from government computers by keeping them from the government computers.”

“That exposes her to three years in jail, per document,” Napolitano continued. “And a conviction also exposes her to disqualification from holding office in the future, under the United States of America.”

Of which, it remains to be seen whether Clinton shares similar Houdini-like characteristics that served husband Bill so well.
