As the United States Senate is currently probing improper communication between Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Barack Obama’s former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, the famous Judge Andrew Napolitano claimed Monday on Fox News that the latter may end up being jailed for up to ten years if found guilty of misconduct.
If there’s hard proof about an improper email exchange between Loretta Lynch and former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, emails discussing the Hillary Clinton private-server investigation, Obama’s former attorney general is facing misconduct charges, i.e. she may end up with having to defend herself against misconduct while in public office.
And yes, that’s a serious felony which may land her up in jail for up to ten years, according to Judge Andrew Napolitano, a Fox News contributor. According to Judge Napolitano, but let’s quote the man himself:
“It is alleged, this document has not seen the light of day if it exists, that there are one or several emails between Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Loretta Lynch concerning the behavior that Loretta Lynch will take to further the DNC interests while Mrs. Lynch was attorney general,”
“It’s a felony. Depending upon exactly what they charged her with, it could be five or 10 years in jail. It’s very serious. It’s the equivalent of obstruction of justice. It’s the same allegation they are making about the president.”
Loretta Lynch was formally warned by by Senator Chuck Grassley via a letter last Thursday about the Senate investigation into her conduct while she was serving as Obama’s AG. Also, she was asked about her relations with Debbie Wasserman Schultz:
“During your time in the Justice Department, did you ever have communications with Rep. Wasserman Schultz, her staff, her associates, or any other current or former DNC officials about the Clinton email investigation?”
reads the official letter. Senator Chuck Grassley’s inquiry comes in the aftermath of former FBI director James Comey’s testimony in front of a Senate Committee, during which he said he felt “queasy” after being asked by Loretta Lynch to refer to the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server as a matter rather than a criminal investigation. Judge Napolitano explained:
This “terminology may be indicative of a mindset on the part of Attorney General Lynch that she was going to do whatever she could to prevent Mrs. Clinton from getting indicted.”
