Depending On Evidence, She Could Be Charged With Concealment, Misuse Of Classified Information, Conspiracy, Obstruction, And More
If the Justice Department decides to seek an indictment of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, it could involve not two or three but a dozen or more charges, according to legal experts.
The FBI is investigating Clinton over her handling of sensitive emails during her tenure at the State Department. It is also reportedly probing possible improprieties connected to the Clinton Foundation, a charity started by her husband.
“If the FBI is doing its job, which I assume it is, and is conducting a thorough investigation, there are a number of federal criminal statutes involved,” former federal prosecutor Joseph diGenova said. “There’s just too much available. And I don’t know how many … It is conceptually impossible for charges not to be brought.”
The potential charges break down into two broad categories — those involving her use of a private server to store emails and those involving the foundation. The home-brew server has dogged Clinton for more than a year. DiGenova, who served as U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia in the Reagan administration, said Clinton’s explanation that she set up the server as a matter of convenience makes no sense.
