Fox News’ senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano had a hard-hitting question for the Federal Bureau of Investigation in response to the release on Monday of over 100 new documents related to the probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.
One of documents appears to prove the undersecretary of state purportedly offered a deal to the FBI in exchange for the bureau agreeing to reclassify documents in order to protect Hillary Clinton, a “quid pro quo” as described by an FBI agent.
Appearing on “America’s Newsroom,” Napolitano said the document points to several potential offenses.
“I’ve never seen this in my career, where an effort is made to change a document after it is evidence in a criminal prosecution,” he said.
“That is obstruction of justice, that is tampering with evidence, that’s offering a bribe,” Napolitano added, before asking: “Why wasn’t someone charged with these crimes by the FBI?”
And the judge was adamant that the deal amounted to a bribe.
“The mere discussion of it is itself a crime,” he said. “It is a crime to bribe someone, it is a crime to offer to bribe someone. This was at best, a bribe, and at worst, an offer to bribe.”
Well, Attorney General Loretta Lynch… what say you?
