According to a Clinton attorney, the Justice Department has reopened the Hillary Clinton email investigation and is offering her a plea bargain if she will agree to plead guilty to charges of breaking the law!
The discussion of a plea bargain took place late last month. It was offered by a high-ranking Justice Department official to the Clinton lawyer.
The Clinton attorney was told: During the exploratory talks with the prosecutor that the Justice Department has reexamined the email case. They believe there are ample grounds for prosecuting Hillary on a number of counts.
This despite former FBI Director James Comey’s decision last July not to prosecute Hillary.
Under the Justice Department’s plea offer, Hillary would be required to sign a document admitting that she committed a prosecutable crime. In return, the DOJ would agree not to bring charges against Hillary in connection with the email probe.
Also as part of the agreement, the Justice Department would not proceed with an investigation of Hillary’s pay to play deals with foreign governments and businessmen who contributed to the Clinton Foundation or who paid Bill Clinton exorbitant speaking fees.
The Clinton attorney cautioned that normally a plea is offered by a prosecutor only upon arraignment. Hillary has not yet been charged with any crime.
The article, titled, “Hillary’s Plea Bargain,” was penned by Ed Klein, former New York Times Magazine editor-in-chief. He claims that not only has the Clinton email investigation been reopened, but that Clinton was offered a plea bargain if she will admit that she “committed a prosecutable crime.”
Snopes is reporting that the claim is currently unproven and that Klein has been wrong in the past.
What they fail to mention tho is that he has been right a WHOLE lot more than he has been incorrect.
Klein on Tuesday also noted that he didn’t think Clinton would take the plea bargain.
Speaking with “America Talks Live’s” Miranda Khan, Klein said:
“Sometimes she has trouble admitting that she’s Hillary Clinton, you’re absolutely right. This is a woman who never, ever admits that she did anything wrong.”
“We’ve all seen how she has blamed everybody but herself for her loss in 2016 at the presidential election. So you’re right, I totally agree with you that the chances of her accepting such an offer are practically zero,” he said.
Despite doubling down on his remarks about the Clinton investigation, there seemed to be a discrepancy in communication. He told Khan that the Department of Justice was “considering” reopening it, not that they had reopened it.
“They are seriously thinking of reopening this investigation. Therefore if she doesn’t take the plea agreement, which I agree with you, she almost certainly won’t, I think they will then proceed with this investigation. This is going to drag on for a long time and in a way balance the investigation that’s going on with President Donald Trump and his campaign advisers regarding so-called collusion with the Russians.”
So who knows? We do know that the Justice Department is not through. There is still an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation.
We can all hope! I called Hillary for comment. She yelled, “What difference does it make!”, right in my ear!
What do you think about the claim that Clinton received a plea offer from the Department of Justice? Have you seen further evidence to support or disprove this claim? Do you think Clinton is guilty? If so, would you support a plea deal? Let us know in the comments section below!
