Napolitano On Hillary’s Emails: Obama Could Be Subpoenaed To Testify

Judge Andrew Napolitano believes there’s a possibility of President Barack Obama being subpoenaed to testify against Hillary Clinton as part of the investigation into her use of email while secretary of state.

Appearing on Fox News’s “Shepard Smith Reporting” on Tuesday, guest host Harris Faulkner asked if Obama could be subpoenaed to testify against Clinton, to which Napolitano replied, “I am fairly confident that some of those top secret e-mails that Mrs. Clinton sent and received came from and went back to the president. If he didn’t know where they were going and if he’s not a witness in this case, I don’t know who else might be.” (RELATED: State Dept. Withholding 18 Emails Between Hillary, Obama [VIDEO])

Napolitano went on to say that the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server and a private email account while secretary of state “is about to come to an end.” (RELATED: Reports: Some Of Hillary Clinton’s Emails Are ‘Too Damaging’ To National Security To Release)

“As soon as the New Jersey and California primaries are over on Tuesday, she will have her interview. She says she’s looking forward to it. She can’t be possibly be looking forward to it. They know a lot more about this case, the people interrogating her than she does.” (RELATED: Hillary Clinton’s Emails Contain ‘Operational Intelligence’ That Put Lives At Risk)

Faulkner followed up, “How much pressure is there on the attorney general Loretta Lynch right now?” (WATCH: Napolitano: ‘Ample Evidence’ To Indict Clinton, Only Lynch Or Obama Could Prevent It)

“There will soon be a great deal of pressure from some of the most important professionals in the FBI to allow prosecutors to present this evidence to the grand jury and let the grand jury decide whether or not to indict.”

Later, Napolitano said that if Obama “knows his e-mails are in there, can he participate in the decision whether or not this case goes to the grand jury or should he step aside and let Loretta Lynch call it? Theoretically, under the law Attorney General Lynch should call it. This should not reach the White House.”
