charles krauthammer

On Thursday on the popular show (What show on Fox isn’t popular?) “Special Report”  Charles Krauthammer echoed the words of Judge Napolitano as well as giving a summary of the situation over Hillary’s emails.  He articulated the legal woe she could be facing in the following statement:

KRAUTHAMMER: It’s not over. It’s got legs. It’s got long legs. It’s got legs because the AP has now sued the State Department to get access to her emails. Because three committees in the House are going to sue to get access or subpoena her emails because we are now in a position where we are arguing over what is the proper meaning of the word ‘is.’

I said that a week ago and I did it as a joke. With the Clintons, you can’t make this stuff up. We are actually return to it depends what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is, and I think what the Judge [Andrew Napolitano] is explaining…has raised is a very serious issue. If she did not sign the document, then what she did, the one on separation, then what she did is to leave without turning over government documents, which I believe is a felony. I don’t see how you could interpret it either way. If she signed it, it’s perjury. If she didn’t, then she left with government documents, which is illegal. So, now we have the legal issues.

I’m sure the Clintons will invent a parsing of the words, it depends what a document means. It depends what ‘is’ is. But I do want to say one thing about what the Obama people are saying in astonishment. I suspect that ‘what the hell’ is a loose translation of what they actually said.

The democrats are sweating bullets and they hope that if this is going to take her down, that it will happen quickly.  The problem for them is if it forces Hillary out too late, they will be unable to replace her and still have a chance to win in 2016.  This has legs because the deep pocketed Associated Press has filed a lawsuit over the emails and they are still pissed at the Obama regime for bugging their offices and are unlikely to back down or fold under pressure.
