Fox News judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano said Wednesday that there is "ample evidence" to indict former secretary of state Hillary Clinton over her private email server.
Napolitano, speaking with Fox News host Bill O'Reilly, asserted that Clinton knowingly violated a statement that she signed under oath on her first day on the job, pledging to care for state secrets and know how to recognize them when they arise.
Napolitano cited instances of Clinton's email server, which was stored in the basement of her Chappaqua, New York, home, crashing, which left her BlackBerry temporarily disabled and unable to send or receive emails.
"She went dark and had documents verbally read to her, rather than transmitted to her through the State Department email system," Napolitano told O'Reilly.
When Clinton was approached by State Department IT staff about using a government-issue BlackBerry in the meantime, according to Napolitano, the Democratic presidential front-runner declined, via her assistant Huma Abedin, noting concerns about the Freedom of Information Act.
"Now, what does this tell the FBI?" Napolitano asked. "This shows intent."
He added that the revelation to which he is referring is noted in one of the emails released by the Justice Department.
"So that actually shows a calculation," O'Reilly concluded. "And a calculation shows that she was trying to get around the rules."
