"We are looking at a range of things, everything from the misdemeanor that was charged against General Petraeus, which is putting classified information in an unprotected, classified setting, that's a misdemeanor. Then there is destroying government records. Then there is taking information related to the national defense and treating it with gross negligence such as it becomes disclosed. And finally, there is obstruction of justice."

---Judge Mukasey on what charges Hillary Clinton could face over the possible use of a private server for classified emails

Former Attorney General under President George W. Bush, Judge Michael Mukasey, called into Kilmeade & Friends to discuss the latest on Hillary Clinton's e-mail server and what it means that Bryan Pagliano, who worked on Hillary's 2008 White House campaign and set up the unsecured server in 2009, has been granted immunity by the Justice Department.

Mukasey on Attorney General Loretta Lynch saying the Justice Department has no deadline for concluding the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation

(KILMEADE) Do you sense there is any timing with the election coming up to get this done before November or after November?

(MUKASEY) I don't sense it in that I don't have inside information that tells me one way or the other but I would think they are not proceeding without regard for that date even though the Attorney general (Loretta Lynch) said we are not going to submit to any arbitrary deadlines. That's not an arbitrary deadline, that's a really significant date.
