The U.S. Justice Department has decided to reopen the probe into former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state in the Obama administration, offering the controversial politician a plea bargain if she confesses her crimes, said a Clinton lawyer.
A top DOJ official offered Hillary the plea bargain via her lawyer last month.
Ed Klein, a NewsMax author wrote a column titled “Hillary’s Plea Bargain” on August 8, claiming that the Hillary was offered the bargain as it was almost sure that the former secretary of state is susceptible to prosecution on “a number of counts.”
The author based his article on one unidentified source who presented themselves as Hillary’s attorney. Klein said that the talk of the offer occurred in July this year between the anonymous Hillary lawyer and “a high-ranking Justice Department” functionary.
Read part of Klein’s article for NewsMax below:
…During the exploratory talks with the prosecutor, the Clinton attorney was told that despite former FBI Director James Comey’s decision last July not to prosecute Hillary, the Justice Department has reexamined the email case and believes there are ample grounds for prosecuting Hillary on a number of counts.
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, and Hillary has not yet been charged with any crime.
Many, if not all of the major mainstream media networks have overlooked this story which has not yet been corroborated.
