Hillary Clinton should be indicted for mishandling classified information on a private system, according to Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, although he doubts the Obama administration will take that step.
"The Attorney General is a political appointee, serves at the pleasure of the president," the Texas Republican, a former state attorney general, told conservative talk radio host Hugh Hewitt. "I find it hard to believe that she would indict Secretary Clinton during this time. But it's clear the FBI views this as a very, very serious matter as they should."
Cornyn asked Attorney General Loretta Lynch to appoint a special counsel to investigate Clinton months ago, after the inspector general for the Intelligence Committee found classified information on Clinton's private server and referred the case to the Justice Department. His latest comments follow a report that the inspector general informed lawmakers that Clinton's server contained information beyond the level of top secret.
