According to the New York Post, one of Bill and Hillary’s most trusted legal advisers has offered a recommendation she seek an attorney to help guide her through possible indictments in regards to her email scandal.

It’s expected Mrs. Clinton could be charged with lying under oath as well as mishandling classified documents on her private email server.

Apparently their legal adviser is worried the email scandal won’t just have implications on her candidacy, but her career.

As the New York Post wrote:

The adviser, who has been a Clinton confidant for more than 30 years, laid out his concerns about Hillary’s legal exposure in a wide-ranging interview.

“This email thing is spiraling out of control,” he said. “To paraphrase John Dean of Watergate fame, it’s a cancer on her candidacy.

“Frankly,” he continued, “I am used to my advice on legal matters being taken very seriously and acted upon by the Clintons. I’ve told them repeatedly that this FBI email investigation could go in a very dangerous direction very quickly.

“I think Bill takes the matter seriously. But Hillary is still acting as though it’s a political smear job by right-wing zealots.”

One of his chief concerns is the FBI investigation is moving much quicker than anticipated.

He estimates it could be over as soon as the end of the year and this could be the death knell for her election prospects.

Which is why he said:

“Hillary needs to secure the services of an expert legal counsel — preferably a big-league defense attorney from the Republican side of the aisle,” the adviser said.

“She needs someone to find out whether the FBI and Justice Department are likely to conclude that she’s violated federal laws governing national security.”

Ultimately the adviser said Hillary might be the one to promote her undoing.

After giving her advice to seek legal counsel he was met with resistance from both her staffers as well as the former first lady herself.

He claims she seems to be aloof of the situation, really not believing it poses a significant risk to her chances of making it further in the election. process.

He said he was “tearing my hair out” over Hillary’s defiance of his advice, her insistence that the email controversy was all about politics, and her tendency to joke about the whole thing.

“By joking about her email problem and treating it like a p.r. issue, she’s only hurting herself, maybe mortally, with the prosecutors,” the adviser said. “Insulting career FBI and Justice Department investigators is a very bad and ill-advised strategy.

“You don’t want to be blindsided,” he continued. “And if you ignore it, pretend it is a partisan ploy, and act scornfully, it will blindside you.”

“But from what I know of the case, Hillary is extremely vulnerable. There is going to be blood in the water. The investigators are looking for weak links to get to the bottom of what went on with Hillary’s national security emails. And I’m afraid they will find it.”

This is something conservatives have known for some time now.

So it’s a both a  good sign to see the other side panicking.

Even better is Mrs. Clinton’s beliefs of invincibility.

She could be taken down, and it’s looking better ever passing day.
