Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey has been making the rounds on various news networks in recent days. On Sunday he visited Fox News and on Monday he stopped by MSNBC. Both networks asked him to come in and discuss the Hillary Clinton email scandal and the possible fallout that may come next.
To say that AG Mukasey seems to think that this is a very serious matter would be putting it lightly. Mukasey used language that would indicate he believes that, at worst, Hillary Clinton could potentially see a prison cell, but that even the best case scenario would mean she should be disqualified from holding office.
And I don’t mean that he thinks she should be personally disqualified; Mukasey believes that the law demands that she be disqualified.
Here for your edification is “Title 18 Code 2071” which Mukasey was referencing.
(a) Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
(b) Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. As used in this subsection, the term “office” does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the United States.
On Fox News Mukasey also unmasked the lie the Clinton campaign has been telling about the FBI inquiry being about her server and not Clinton in particular.
Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey said Sunday that Hillary Clinton is indeed the focus of a Justice Department probe, calling the argument that the investigation is about her private email network when she was secretary of state “ridiculous.”
“The FBI doesn’t investigate machines,” Mukasey, a Bush administration attorney general, told “Fox News Sunday.” “It investigates people.”
“It is not a political witch hunt,” he said.
Needless to say, AG Mukasey seems quite certain (and quite confident) that Hillary Clinton has committed a crime and that she is going to face serious repercussions for that crime. The deeper this hole gets the more convinced I become that Hillary Clinton will not be the Democrat nominee in 2016. Which makes me wonder… who will be?
