• Rudy: Hillary Clinton Should Be Under Investigation For Five Different Crimes

    Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani blasted the Department of Justice on Wednesday for failing to hold Democrat presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton accountable.

    Rudy said that if he was still a U.S. Attorney, the former Secretary of State would be facing far more legal trouble for her use of a private email server. He contends she should, in fact, be facing at least “five different” criminal charges.

    “I’d have her under investigation for about five different crimes,” Giuliani said during an appearance on CNN’s “New Day” program. “I think it’s outrageous that the Justice Department is not moving forward with this.

    Clinton’s time as secretary of state, Giuliani argued, raises some grave questions about the Clinton Foundation’s relationship with a number of international companies.

    “It’s clear that she had a conflict of interest, her husband getting hundreds of millions of dollars, she’s making decisions about companies and about corporations that he’s getting money from,” he said. “I think they filed a joint tax return.”

    Giuliani further argued that the destruction of the drive which contained 34,000 emails, some of which were government-related, constituted “obstruction of justice” and could be viewed by a court as an “inference of guilt.”

    “I believe she should be under investigation by the United States attorney in the Southern District of New York for obstruction of justice, for destroying government property,” he said.

    He compared Clinton’s case  to that of former Army Gen. and CIA Director David Petraeus, who was forced to resign his office, fined $100,000 and placed on probation for two years for mishandling classified information by sharing it with the woman who was his mistress as well as his biographer.

    However, Giuliani maintains that what Clinton did was worse.

    She not only “mishandled” government information, but intentionally destroyed records and emails, he said.

    “Hillary Clinton, there are five acts we are talking about. Petraeus gave away one or two little things. She destroyed a drive with 34,000 emails on it,” he said. “In a trial court, I could argue to a jury that is an inference of guilt.”

    Apparently, the Justice Department doesn’t think deleting 34,000 emails with potentially classified information is a criminal act, at least, not when a Clinton does it.
