Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton faces a "grave situation" legally as her email scandal continues to unravel, Fox News' Judge Andrew Napolitano said Wednesday.

The biggest sticking point is based on a report that two emails from the former secretary of state's private server — now in the hands of the Justice Department — were deemed "top secret," the cable network's legal analyst said.

While the term is well known, it's unlikely that most of us are aware of the national security implications of "top secret" — but Napolitano broke it down on "Fox and Friends":

  • "Top secret" means if the information is revealed, it could cause "grave harm" to national security.
  • "Secret" means revealed information could cause "serious harm" to national security.
  • "Classified" means revealed data could cause "some harm" to national security.

"General Petraeus was indicted, prosecuted and convicted for having confidential — the lowest level — materials in a desk drawer in his house," Napolitano said before juxtaposing that Clinton reportedly had "top-secret materials" on her home computer server.
