(National Sentinel) Fall Guys: For about the millionth time in their political careers, someone else will take the fall for a Clinton.
As reported by the Washington Times, a federal judge has ordered three lawyers who advised Hillary Clinton on deleting State Department emails that had been sought in an FBI criminal investigation regarding her “alleged” illegal mishandling of classified data via an unsecured private server to face a bar investigation in Maryland:
Circuit Judge Paul F. Harris Jr. said the complaints lodged against David E. Kendall, Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson were “egregious” and said the state bar couldn’t brush them aside by calling them “frivolous.”
“There are allegations of destroying evidence,” Judge Harris said at a hearing Monday morning, where he said the state’s rules require the bar to conduct investigations no matter who raises the complaint, and can’t brush accusations aside.
The complaint was brought by Ty Clevenger, a lawyer who has pursued sanctions against Mrs. Clinton and her legal team in several venues, and who is also pressing the FBI to release details of its investigation into the former top diplomat.
Other federal courts have brushed aside Clevenger’s request. Harris, however, said his request “appears to have merit” and for now at least, Maryland bar officials will have to conduct a probe into just how serious the lawyers’ efforts were to assist Clinton in deleting her emails.
Mrs. Clinton, who begins a book tour Tuesday, used a secret email account tied to a server she kept at her home in New York to conduct her official business while in the State Department. The arrangement was against department policy, and the FBI said it risked national security, but declined to recommend charges because the bureau said Mrs. Clinton was too inept to understand the risks she was running.
After the arrangement was spotted, Mrs. Clinton belatedly returned thousands of emails back to the government, then deleted the rest, claiming they were personal. The FBI’s probe, though, found thousands that were work-related but weren’t turned over.
Clinton had her lawyers scour her emails which is what has now landed them in hot water.
Should they face punishment — which could include disbarment or even jail time — it’s a safe bet that the world’s most corrupt politician will once again skate, as justice is served on someone else not named Clinton.
