• Hillary’s Legal Adviser: She Thinks It’s A Joke, But This Is What She Really Needs

    A trusted Hillary Clinton legal adviser is urging her lawyer up and hire a criminal defense attorney to represent her because is extremely vulnerable and may get indicted for mishandling classified documents on her private e-mail server and for lying under oath.

    “From what I know of the case, Hillary is extremely vulnerable,” the Clinton confidant told the New York Post. “There is going to be blood in the water. The investigators are looking for weak links to get to the bottom of what went on with Hillary’s national security emails. And I’m afraid they will find it.”

    The legal adviser, who been a Clinton aide for more than 30 years, said he is “tearing my hair out” out of concern for Clinton because she is defiant, taking the controversy lightly, insisting that the email controversy is all about politics and joking about the whole thing.

    From the NYPOST:

     “This e-mail thing is spiraling out of control,” he said. “To paraphrase John Dean of Watergate fame, it’s a cancer on her candidacy.

    “Frankly,” he continued, “I am used to my advice on legal matters being taken very seriously and acted upon by the Clintons. I’ve told them repeatedly that this FBI e-mail investigation could go in a very dangerous direction very quickly.

    “I think Bill takes the matter seriously. But Hillary is still acting as though it’s a political smear job by right-wing zealots.”

    In separate phone conversations with Bill and Hillary, the adviser said he warned them that Justice Department prosecutors handling Hillary’s case expect the FBI probe to wrap up much sooner than expected — maybe as soon as the end of this year.

    His advice to Hillary: lawyer up now before it’s too late. “Hillary needs to secure the services of an expert legal counsel—preferably a big-league defense attorney from the Republican side of the aisle,” the adviser said. “She needs someone to find out whether the FBI and Justice Department are likely to conclude that she’s violated federal laws governing national security.”

    The Clinton confidant said that his advice has met a lot of resistance among members of Hillary’s campaign staff. But Hillary has been the biggest problem. He described her as being in a state of denial.

    He said he was “tearing my hair out” over Hillary’s defiance of his advice, her insistence that the email controversy was all about politics, and her tendency to joke about the whole thing.

    “By joking about her email problem and treating it like a PR issue, she’s only hurting herself, maybe mortally, with the prosecutors,” the adviser said. “Insulting career FBI and Justice Department investigators is a very bad and ill-advised strategy.

    “You don’t want to be blindsided,” he continued. “And if you ignore it, pretend it is a partisan ploy, and act scornfully, it will blindside you.”
