Former Clinton family adviser Dick Morris has some no-nonsense advice for Hillary Clinton as the Democratic presidential candidate wrestles to contain her mushrooming email scandal: "Drop out of the race and be glad you're not going to jail."

In a Newsmax TV interview airing Thursday on "Newsmax Prime," Morris tells host J.D. Hayworth that Clinton has no excuse for exchanging classified government information on her private email account and server when she was secretary of state.

And Morris believes the number of emails containing top secret material will continue to grow as an FBI investigation into the matter grows.

"I mean, to understand the magnitude of what she's facing, just do the math. There are 305 emails that have been identified as potentially containing classified information. That's of about 5,000 that were reviewed," Morris, a Newsmax political analyst, said.

"There are still 25,000 more to go to be reviewed. In addition, there are 30,000 that have been wiped off [her server] and the FBI says it may be able to get them back. And [there are] 15,000 or so that Philippe Reins, her adviser, has, and 5,000 or 6,000 that Huma Abedin, her adviser, has.

"What does the secretary of state do for a living? National security. When you look at her emails, you're going to find an abundance of emails that contain national security, in some cases, classified information."

The sheer amount of classified information possibly stored on Clinton's server make the security breaches of former CIA directors David Petraeus and John Deutch and former National Security Advisor Sandy Berger pale in comparison, according to Morris.

His advice to Clinton: "Drop out of the race and be glad you're not going to jail."

Clinton, who has maintained her innocence, is ahead of her GOP presidential challengers but the lead is diminishing, with a CNN poll released Wednesday giving her only a single-digit lead over three Republicans, including front-runner Donald Trump.

Trump called the email imbroglio "very serious" and "probably criminal. I think almost you could say, almost certainly criminal. And it looks to me like she's not going to be prosecuted. And that's only because the prosecutors are Democrats."

But after two sensitive emails from Clinton's top aides were highlighted in a recent Fox News report, her campaign told reporters that the information bolsters Clinton's contention that she did not use a private email system for classified communication, The Washington Post reports.
