WATCH: Judge Napolitano Explains Hillary Clinton’s Legal Noose

Hillary Clinton is in a heap of big trouble.  That’s the between the lines reading Judge Andrew Napolitano has of a number of investigational developments going on inside the government on a number of levels.

Thanks to the Benghazi Committee finally figuring out that any official emails then Secretary Hillary Clinton sent or received at the time of the attack – while she was secretary – were not in the possession of the State Department, the steady drip, drip drip of the servergate scandal has taken form.  For that, Hillary Rodham Clinton has every reason to be resentful.  With that discovery, the gig was up.  Any control she attempted to have over the content of her communications as Secretary was gone.

Since the State Department has been involved with locating all the electronic correspondence, what has been discovered in the meantime is that top secret information passed through the server itself despite Mrs. Clinton’s denials that such a scenario was possible.  By law, this is called treason as the server was unsecured.

So, where does this leave Mrs. Clinton from a legal perspective?  Judge Napolitano explains.

“The legal noose around her neck is tightening and it is a noose of her own creation.”  (Much better metaphor than she made her bed, now she has to lie in it.)

In so many ways, on so many levels, it is very difficult to be sympathetic to a figure whose blatant disregard for the law and just about everything and everyone around her has been on display for a couple decades.  The protestations that the investigation by the government is a witch hunt and that the real issue is separating the personal from the professional are just a non-starter after classified information was found in the cache.  That is a direct contradiction to sworn testimony – and THAT is called perjury.

At this point, the number of felonies facing Mrs. Clinton regardless of what she tells the Benghazi Committee on October 22 are stacking up.  James Comey, the Director of the FBI is getting daily updates on where the investigation is, and he assures the public that said investigation will be complete in January.

The question is: just how many felonies will Mrs. Clinton be charged with if the government so chooses the indictment route.  (It might be time to set up the betting pool on this one.)
