Clinton unlikely to face perjury charges in email scandal


But Hardin, who worked as a prosecutor for 15 years before opening his private practice in Houston, said the Justice Department rarely moves to charge people with perjury before Congress, and they’re unlikely to make a decision one way or the other before the election.

Even if they did bring her to trial, the defense is likely pretty straightforward: she believed what she was saying at the time, even if it turned out to be inaccurate.

The fact that Clemens was even charged with perjury – lawmakers said he lied when he told a panel in 2008 that he’d never used steroids or human growth hormone – makes his case an outlier.

According to a widely cited 2007 study by P.J. Meitl in the Quinnipiac Law Review, only six people had been convicted of perjury to Congress going back to the 1940s – and two of them were related to the Watergate scandal, another from Iran-Contra.


Anyone who gets their hopes up for this new investigation is only setting themselves up for failure.

This entire ordeal is a failure.

The fact that many of these Republicans, some of them lawyers, are misleading people on the aspect of intent is concerning.

So its ok to charge a baseball player for lying to congress about a drug test but not the SOS for lying about classified info?

That is quite a reach.

2008????hmm wasn't that a democratic majority house?
Congress investigates baseball and that is an efficient use of tax dollars, but investigating possible mishandling of classified info is a waste of money.

You call it a failure before an investigation even begins?

I got a feeling this endorsement for hillary is going to have a better outcome for trump in the long run.

Your reasoning is irrelevant. The fact of the matter is that this perjury investigation won't produce any new results.

Whats a failure is that Even if any other american did what clinton did even without intent to do so they would be at the very least fined or jailed.

Clinton get basically told,bad girl bad!

The law needs to be changed to include ANY INSTANCE of leaking and or anything classified. Point is even if she didnt intend any harm she should still be punished. We do the same to Drunk drivers and other law breakers.

Unless its the democratic nominee right?

WHat a bunch of hypocrites.

Yes, it's a failure because people are being misled and the Republicans are dragging this out for the sake of a dog and pony show.

It's Benghazi all over.

Incorrect.

80% of cases like this are never prosecuted.

No it is clearly an investigation to find out if she lied to congress.

If congress can investigate a baseball player why not a sos?

They already know that it is going to be impossible to prove she intended to deceive with her comments.

It is a dog and pony show to satisfy the Right Wing nuts that feel defeated after the Benghazi and email failure.

All irrelevant. None of that changes the fact that Congress won't be charging Hillary with perjury. You can bitch and moan about it all day. Talk about Democratic congresses and baseball, but it's all irrelevant. You can't argue around the fact that proving intent in a perjury case is near impossible.

when you have the majority, you can prosecute her. If the republicans keep the majority day one she gets impeached and they can get her for her mis statements and mis remberings because the burden of proof is lower.

What a sell out


The same can be said of the Bernie supporters who are now going to vote for Clinton.

Maybe he didn't take The Green Party's offer because he still believes he has a shot at the democratic nomination. It's perplexing...why the heck hasn't he dropped out? He still hasn't dropped out even after endorsing Hillary.

I remember democrats and the media demanding Hillary drop out, in 2008. She actually won the popular vote, but was basically forced to drop out by June 7.

Bernie is far behind where Hillary was, in 2008 -- so why hasn't he dropped out? It's mid-July already. More importantly, why hasn't the DNC and media hounded him relentlessly to drop out like they did Hillary?

The inconsistency there bugs me.

I dont think he has dropped out because he is displaying resoluteness so he has a good chance at VP
