The FBI is ready to indict Hillary Clinton as part of its ongoing investigation into her use of a private email server to send classified material, according to a senior legal analyst.
Fox News’ resident Judge, Andrew Napolitano reacted to last night’s news that Bryan Pagliano, the aide who setup the server, is working with the DOJ.
“This is enough to shake the American political system to its foundation.” Napolitano urged.
Napolitano reasoned that the fact that the FBI has pushed for and been granted immunity for Pagliano indicates that the DOJ is more intimately involved than it at first appeared.
Immunity is usually granted to a witness when they have evidence that could implicate themselves if they testify.
Napolitano went on to explain that the immunity also indicates that the DOJ has probably already convened a Grand Jury, signaling that the FBI feels it has enough evidence to indict Clinton and begin a criminal trial.
“He (Pagliano) knows who led it and he knows who was in it, and he’s about to spill the beans to a grand jury,” Napolitano said.
The Judge added that Hillary “should be terrified of the fact that he’s been granted immunity.”
“Mr. Pagliano is their nightmare,” Napolitano noted.
Pagliano had previously pleaded the fifth and refused to answer any questions. It appears that has now changed.
Napolitano added that a Clinton indictment “will shake the Democratic Party and the American political establishment to the core.”
ABC correspondent Jonathan Karl also noted that the FBI is now “very likely” to indict Clinton:
“This is the cloud that just won’t go away,” Karl said on Good Morning America. “The latest reports are an indication that this remains very much an active FBI investigation, and although there’s absolutely no indication that Clinton herself is a target, it is very likely that she will be asked to testify, or at least come in and take questions from the FBI in the coming weeks.”
The Clinton campaign is desperately attempting to spin the FBI investigation into a positive, with campaign spokesman Brian Fallon announcing that the campaign was “pleased” that Pagliano is now speaking to investigators.
Meanwhile, Hillary herself was partying last night at a fundraiser concert featuring Elton John and Katy Perry.
