FBI Now Investigating Hillary Clinton for Using State Department to Benefit Clinton Foundation?

by | Jan 16, 2016

In a new video at Fox News, Judge Andrew Napolitano suggests that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has begun a new investigation of Hillary Clinton, in addition to the ongoing investigation of if she as secretary of state in the Obama administration failed to safeguard United States government secrets. This new investigation centers on whether Clinton illegally made decisions in the State Department “to favor her husband’s foundation or her husband’s speaking gigs.”

Clinton’s husband Bill Clinton founded the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation after serving two terms as president of the United States. The Clintons’ daughter Chelsea Clinton is a member of the foundation’s board of directors, as is Bill Clinton. Hillary Clinton joined the foundation’s board shortly after leaving the State Department in February of 2013 and left the board in April of last year

Watch Napolitano’s complete video here:

In the video, Napolitano, who is a member of the Ron Paul Institute’s Advisory Board, says that the case against Clinton for failure to safeguard US government secrets has “gotten stronger” in recent weeks. In particular, Napolitano mentions the disclosure of two “smoking guns” emails from Clinton that respectively tell subordinates to send secret information via unsecured means and to strip the secret classification marking from a document before sending it to her.

Napolitano concludes that “the FBI will soon make a recommendation to the Justice Department about whether or not [Clinton] should be indicted.” This would be consistent with Napolitano’s suggestion back in August that the Justice Department may announce criminal charges against Clinton, who is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, on the eve of the first-in-the-nation New Hampshire Primary.
