Hillary Clinton has been suspiciously calm for someone being investigated by the FBI. She refused to even answer a question regarding a possible indictment at the last Democrat debate, and President Obama has thrown his support behind her – as have many high-profile Democrats.It’s unlikely that anyone with a political reputation would endorse Hillary unless they were certain it’s more likely she’d be spending the next eight years in the White House instead of the clink.
As Mediaite is reporting, a verdict will be reached sooner than we thought.
Wednesday night, Al Jazeera host David Shuster said the FBI has completed its examination of Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton‘s private email server after an investigation lasting nearly one year. The former Fox News and MSNBC reporter states investigators are nearing a verdict whether to seek criminal charges against the Former Secretary of State, Senator and First Lady.
Per Shuster:“While Hillary Clinton fights for the Democratic presidential nomination, law enforcement officials tell Al Jazeera America the Federal Investigation into her personal email system while she was Secretary of State has reached a critical stage.
The FBI, led by Director James Comey, has now finished examining Clinton’s private emails and home server. And the sources add that Comey’s FBI team has been joined by the Justice Department prosecutors. Together, they are now examining the evidence, analyzing relevant laws, and attempting to arrange interviews with key figures in the investigation.”
Shuster finishes his report this way: “Because there is now every sign the Clinton email investigation is quickly headed towards a conclusion, whether it’s her exoneration or indictment. In terms of timing, sources expect the conclusion to come in weeks, not months. And they add that Hillary Clinton’s interview with the FBI, which could come in days, could be crucial.Mediaite reports Comey will be conducting the interviews himself.
Soon after those interviews — in the next few days and weeks — officials expect Director Comey to make his recommendation to Attorney General Loretta Lynch about potential criminal charges.”It’s hard to imagine Obama’s FBI jailing one of their own. It’s like a casino – except the White House always wins.
