Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano said Monday the Clinton crowd “has degraded the FBI… and degraded the rule of law.”
The former judge suggested in an appearance on “The Kelly File” that disgruntled FBI agents leaked information about top Hillary Clinton ally Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s PAC giving the wife of an FBI official in charge of the probe of Clinton’s private email server a campaign contribution of nearly a half-million dollars.
Napolitano said agents who worked the investigation are “furious at the decision not to prosecute her.”
“They were denied the right tools — no grand jury, no subpoenas, no search warrants,” he said. “They are the ones leaking information to undermine the decision not to prosecute to demonstrate that it was not professionally made — that it was done for political reasons.”
When host Megyn Kelly noted that the official, FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, did not oversee the investigation while his wife was running for office, Napolitano said it was a matter of the “appearance of impropriety…[that] it looks like it’s fishy.”
“How can this guy be the #2 person in the Justice Department when the person providing the money to his wife himself is being investigated by the FBI?” he asked.
Federal agents are investigating McAuliffe over suspicious campaign contributions, according to Fox News.
“[McCabe] has an interest in that money going to his wife, and when he has an interest in seeing to it that Mrs. Clinton is not indicted, because that disrupts the financial stream to his wife,” Napolitano said.
