During a Tuesday appearance on Fox Business Channel’s “Varney & Co.,” legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano told Stuart Varney that he’s disappointed in his “friend” Attorney General Jeff Sessions for refusing to prosecute Hillary Clinton.
Napolitano told Varney “there’s ample evidence of her guilt,” in connection to her private email investigation.
The Trump supporting Fox contributor then gave Varney an explanation as to why Sessions refuses to go over Clinton.
Fox Business Channel reports:
A Maryland judge has order an investigation into three lawyers who reportedly helped Hillary Clinton delete her private emails.
Napolitano sees criminal charges against Clinton as unlikely at this point.
“The government has chosen not to prosecute. [Attorney General] Jeff Sessions, the Justice Department, can investigate, indict and prosecute, but they choose not to do so,” he said.
Napolitano disagreed with the decision not to prosecute, telling Varney, “I think it’s a terrible decision not to prosecute. They should prosecute Mrs. Clinton because there’s ample evidence of her guilt, and they should prosecute anybody that destroyed evidence in a criminal investigation.”
According to Napolitano, the culture in government is holding back Sessions from pursuing an investigation against Clinton.
“It’s an institutional culture in government,” he said. “We don’t want to go after our predecessors because we don’t want our successors to come after us.”
On Monday, the Maryland state bar was ordered by County Circuit Court Judge Paul F. Harris Jr. to investigate the lawyers who assisted Hillary Clinton with deleting her private emails.
Washington Times reports:
Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge Paul F. Harris Jr. said the complaints lodged against David E. Kendall, Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson were egregious and the state bar couldn’t dismiss them as frivolous.
“There are allegations of destroying evidence,” Judge Harris said at a hearing Monday morning.
He said the state’s rules require the bar to conduct investigations no matter who raises the complaint and can’t brush aside accusations.
The judge made the announcement a day before Mrs. Clinton releases her latest book, “What Happened,” and begins a monthslong book tour attempting to explain how she lost an election she thought she had secured.
If Judge James E. Boasberg has his way, details of Hillary Clinton’s email investigation by the FBI will see the light of day. The U.S. District Judge isn’t buying the FBI’s claim that a “lack of public interest” justifies withholding the documents.
Washington Times reports:
A federal judge ordered the FBI on Thursday to disclose more details about how it handled its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s secret email account.
U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg said court papers describing the grand jury subpoenas the FBI obtained to compel information from Mrs. Clinton’s internet service providers can be made public.
In doing so, he overruled objections by the Trump administration that had insisted making the information public would violate grand jury secrecy rules.
“After reviewing the document in camera, the court concludes that it largely rehashes information already made public, thus obviating any need for secrecy,” the judge said.
