As the FBI continues to investigate Hillary Clinton’s illicit private server, speculation grows as to whether the agency will recommend a criminal indictment, and whether the Obama administration’s Justice Department will follow such a recommendation.
If the FBI recommends an indictment, and the Justice Department refuses, it may not be the last we hear of the issue, a senior senator speculates.
The Washington Examiner reports:
The head of the Senate Judiciary Committee said Friday that FBI investigators could leak details of their probe into Hillary Clinton's emails, though he stopped short of saying they should.
"Is there going to be political interference? If there's enough evidence to prosecute, will there be political interference?" Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, asked in remarks delivered before the Des Moines A.M. Rotary club.
"If there's political interference, then I assume that somebody in the FBI is going to leak these reports and it's either going to have an effect politically or it's going to lead to prosecution if there's enough evidence."
