As new details about Hillary Clinton’s email servers trickles out, the number of potential criminal violations she has committed continues to pile up.
Former Mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani now estimates that Clinton has run afoul of 13-15 federal statutes. The list potentially includes the improper transmission and handling of confidential information, mail fraud statutes, wire fraud statutes, and obstruction of justice.
“The case is getting so strong now that it’s going to be really hard to have an intellectually honest decision and walk away from it,” the former federal prosecutor claimed on Thursday’s Hannity adding that, “she has also proven that she is completely grossly negligent in the handling of sensitive information, and we want someone like this for President of the United States?”
As we reported earlier this week, Hillary Clinton is reportedly being advised to seek the services of a criminal defense attorney. With the case against her mounting, she might be wise to heed such advice.
Here’s a brief rundown of some of the laws the former Secretary of State has potentially run afoul of:
