Did Hillary Commit a Felony?
Hillary Clinton’s email scandal continues to yield serious questions. According to The Washington Examiner, “Clinton, like all departing federal employees, was required to fill out and sign a separation statement [Form OF-109] affirming that she had turned over all classified and other government documents, including all emails dealing with official business.” Did Clinton sign the form? The State Department refuses to say just yet. If not, why not? And if so, did she commit a felony? “There’s no question” she did, says Shannen Coffin, former counsel to Dick Cheney. “There’s no doubt … that wherever the secretary had those records – if she had them in her Chappaqua home, if she had them in her office, if she had them somewhere else – she’s got to bring all of the records to the table, and turn over any official records at the time of her departure,” Coffin said. “Not – most definitely not – two years later.” He added, “The form itself says, ‘Hey, before you sign this, understand that you are certifying something that we can prosecute you for. Making a false statement in this context, knowingly and willfully’ – which, I can’t imagine anything more knowing and willful than knowing you have 55,000 records sitting in your home – ‘if you do that, it is a felony.’” Clinton’s flippant dismissal of questions at her Tuesday press conference left many things unanswered. And she’s looking worse all the time.
