Judge Napolitano explains why Loretta Lynch could be facing 5-10 years in prison: ‘It’s a felony’
Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano said Monday that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch could face a lengthy prison term if found guilty of “misconduct in office” for intervening in the FBI’s criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
Former FBI Director James Comeytestified under oath to the Senate Judiciary Committeeearlier this month that while his bureau was in the midst of their investigation into Clinton, Lynch, who at the time was the attorney general, instructed him to publicly refer to the Clinton investigation as a “matter” instead of an investigation.
According to Napolitano, whose comments came on Fox Business, that “terminology may be indicative of a mindset on the part of Attorney General Lynch that she was going to do whatever she could to prevent Mrs. Clinton from getting indicted.”
“There is enough evidence here, just on the basis of the little snippets given to the Senate Intelligence Committee by former FBI Director Jim Comey, that Mrs. Lynch was either conflicted or working at odds with the Justice Department and in behalf of Mrs. Clinton’s campaign and the DNC when she told them to use different terminology for the investigation,” Napolitano explained.
