The Justice Department has offered Hillary Clinton a plea deal in their investigation into her email server scandal. The deal hinges on Clinton admitting she broke the law. Ed Klein broke the story in a report on Newsmax.
It appears President Donald Trump was serious when he said he would reopen the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal activities. Now, it appears they have enough evidence to prosecute and convict Hillary, and is ready to give her a deal to possibly avoid jail time.
It is unclear how the Clintons reacted to the offer. Considering how neither one has never admitting to doing anything wrong, they would likely take their chances in court than admit to anything.
The Justice Department has reopened the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified material on her private email system while she was secretary of state, and is considering offering her a plea bargain if she will agree to plead guilty to charges of breaking the law, according to a Clinton attorney.
The discussion of a plea bargain took place late last month and was offered by a high-ranking Justice Department official to the Clinton lawyer.
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.
