The following are 11 federal laws that Hillary Clinton and her associates have been accused of violating, whether at The State Department or in connection with The Clinton Foundation:

  1. U.S. Code § 798 – Disclosure of classified information
  2. U.S. Code § 1031 — Major fraud against the United States
  3. U.S. Code § 371Conspiracy to commit a federal offense
  4. U.S. Code § 1924 – Unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents or material
  5. U.S. Code § 2071(b) — Concealment, removal, or mutilation generally
  6. U.S. Code § 1346 — Definition of “scheme or artifice to defraud”
  7. U.S. Code § 641 – Public money, property or records
  8. U.S. Code § 1343 – Fraud by wire, radio or television
  9. U.S. Code § 1505 – Obstruction of proceedings before departments, agencies, and committees
  10. U.S. Code § 1519 — Destruction, alteration, or falsification of records in federal investigations
  11. 18 U.S. Code § 793 — Gathering, transmitting or losing defense information

As the nation is well aware, FBI director James Comey recently reopened the federal investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails.

In July, Comey stunned many political observers by holding a pre-emptive press conference and ticking off a damning string of violations—only to dismiss them on non-existent legal grounds that Mrs. Clinton did not “intend” to break the law.

Contrary to that assertion, and due to his decision not to pursue indictment not being determined in a court of law, the following laws may potentially have been broken by Mrs. Clinton, in connection with:

Hillary Clinton has given a number of statements to the public about her private email server that have turned out to be demonstrably false, even if simply based on FBI Director Comey's testimony. Further disturbing details about the case came out later in the form of the bureau's redacted notes on the email case.

In one exchange before Congress, Comey denied that Hillary Clinton had “broken the law,” but said any government agents who did what she did would be “in big trouble.”

A powerful GOP Senator, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, has gone further than saying Hillary Clinton will be “in big trouble.”

The Chairman of Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee listed two federal statutes in particular that Hillary Clinton potentially violated—18 U.S. Code 793 (f) and 18 U.S. Code 2071. These codes deal with “the willful destruction or removal from proper custody of information relating to national defense.”

The “high crimes and misdemeanors” would constitute basis for impeachment if applicable at the time of a hearing, should Mrs. Clinton become president.

Update: FBI sources are telling Bret Baier of Fox News that an indictment is “likely” in the Hillary Clinton email case.
