“Mrs. Clinton should be treated like anyone else who is apparently — I’ll take that back — obviously violating the law.” That’s what Judge Andrew Napolitano told Megyn Kelly on her Fox News show Monday night. The network’s judicial analyst was referring to the former secretary of state’s email practices that remain highly controversial as lawyers wrestle over the release of Mrs. Clinton’s official communications.
During a segment on The Kelly File, Judge Napolitano explained why a just-issued order from a federal judge could present serious legal jeopardy for the Democrat frontrunner in the 2016 presidential contest, as well as for two of her closest aides when Hillary headed the State Department. The four words that the judge cited in that court order that are so extraordinary and potentially explosive are, “under penalty of perjury.”
“I cannot emphasize to you too much the significance of this federal judge — appointed to the bench by her husband — using the phrase, ‘under penalty of perjury,’ reminding her for the first time, Mrs. Clinton, you will be under oath.”

Judge Napolitano also noted that when the government suspected that Gen. David Petraeus, the disgraced former head of the CIA, kept secure documents in his home, the FBI raided it. As far as we know, no such raid has occurred in Hillary’s home where her private email server was kept. That, despite the fact that the government doesn’t suspect she has secure documents, it’s known that she did.
