The FBI Nailed Martha Stewart With This- Will It Work In Putting Hillary Behind Bars?
Even though Hillary survived 11 hour of questioning in front of a Congressional committee,it seems she’s not yet out of the woods.
The FBI’s investigation of Benghazi continues.
And if Hillary isn’t careful, the very same statute that landed Martha Stewart in jail, could put Hillary behind bars too.
Fox News judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano said the same section got Martha Stewart in trouble with the FBI. To be a violation, the statements do not need to be given under oath.
“This is a broad, brush statute that punishes individuals who are not direct and fulsome in their answers,” former FBI intelligence officer Timothy Gill told Fox News. Gill is not connected to the email investigation, but spent 16 years as part of the bureau’s national security branch, and worked the post 9/11 anthrax case where considerable time was spent resolving discrepancies in Bruce Ivins’ statements and his unusual work activities at Fort Detrick, Md.
“It is a cover-all. The problem for a defendant is when their statements cause the bureau to expend more time, energy, resources to de-conflict their statements with the evidence,” he said.
Without question, Hillary and her staff were not forthcoming about Hillary’s emails and use of a private email server.
Their strategy from the beginning has been to delay any investigation.
In fact, it’s these delaying tactics that have caused the $5 million cost of the investigation.
The question however remains:
This worked in nailing Martha Stewart.
Will it give the FBI enough to put Hillary in prison too?
