The US Department of Justice may announce criminal charges against Democratic Party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton around the time of the first presidential primary. The charges would arise from Clinton’s mishandling of classified information in her email correspondence during her time as secretary of state. So suggests Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Andrew Napolitano in a new Fox News interview.
In the interview, Napolitano, who was a New Jersey judge, answers “yes” in response to this query from host Steve Doocy: “Do you feel with your judicial gut [Clinton] is going to wind up getting charged?” Napolitano, a Ron Paul Institute Advisory Board member, then proceeds to predict that, “if there is enough evidence to bring criminal charges,” the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) would reveal that around the time of the first-in-the-nation New Hampshire presidential primary.
Watch here the complete interview that also features Napolitano’s intriguing comparison of Clinton’s actions in her emails scandal with actions of President Richard Nixon in the Watergate scandal:
Clinton recently fell behind Sen. Bernie Sanders in some New Hampshire polling. This, along with the prospect of criminal charges hitting her around the time of the first-in-the-nation primary, suggests the widespread declaration that Clinton is the shoo-in for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination may be as wrong as was the similar widespread declaration regarding Clinton in the 2008 presidential race.
