Hillary Clinton must feel as though the noose is tightening around her neck, her career and her legacy. Even as her campaign continues to limp along forced to compete for the Democrat presidential nomination with an aged and unaccomplished socialist, her legal troubles continue to mount. Over the last week the government has finally admitted that not only was there classified information on Clinton’s private server – she literally authored more than 100 classified documents herself! Along with the revelations came the news that one of her key aides had just made a deal with the FBI, promising himself immunity as long as he would testify as a witness in the Clinton server case.
It does beg the question — if the Clinton team had nothing to worry about, why would a key member of their team need immunity?
Now Judge Andrew Napolitano says that Hillary Clinton should be “terrified” about the latest twist in the FBI’s case against her.

As Judge Napolitano explains, the only way that Clinton staffer, Bryan Pagliano, could secure “immunity” is if the FBI and Department of Justice prosecutors were already working together and had convinced a federal judge that the information he held was important enough that he should be promised immunity from prosecution. Judge Napolitano also explains that there are particular issues stemming from Pagliano’s testimony that seem to indicate that Clinton could be prosecuted for espionage because of how ineptly she handled our nation’s most important secrets!
Along with the news that Pagliano had been granted immunity came the realization that Clinton herself had been responsible for leaking classified information on her unsecure servers.
Hillary Clinton wrote 104 emails that she sent using her private server while secretary of state that the government has since said contain classified information, according to a new Washington Post analysis of Clinton’s publicly released correspondence.
The finding is the first accounting of the Democratic presidential front-runner’s personal role in placing information now considered sensitive into insecure email during her State Department tenure. Clinton’s authorship of dozens of emails now considered classified could complicate her efforts to argue that she never put government secrets at risk.
In roughly three-quarters of those cases, officials have determined that material Clinton herself wrote in the body of email messages is classified. Clinton sometimes initiated the conversations but more often replied to aides or other officials with brief reactions to ongoing discussions.
I’m not sure how any Democrat voter could even consider casting a vote for Hillary Clinton at this juncture, and I’m completely incredulous that the DNC hasn’t forced her to withdraw already. Apparently she’s a Hill upon which the Democrat Party is willing to die.
