Things are heating up for Hillary Clinton, and that might not be a good thing.
Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay has indicated that the FBI is “ready to indict” Hillary Clinton for the email scandal she has been embroiled in for the past year.
DeLay spoke with Newsmax TV’s Steve Malzberg:
I have friends that are in the FBI, and they tell me they’re ready to indict, they’re ready to recommend an indictment. And they also say that if the attorney general does not indict, they’re going public. So one way or another, either she’s gonna be indicted, and that process begins, or we try her in the public eye with her campaign. One way or another, she’s gonna have to face these charges.”
Despite what he says, a federal grand jury would be the one to indict Clinton, not the FBI.
It’s important to remember DeLay, himself, is no stranger to the courts as he was convicted of money laundering and conspiracy in 2010. However, that conviction was overturned.
The FBI is investigating whether top secret information was passed through her home server, which is a big no-no. The State Department has released almost 55,000 emails they were ordered by the court to release. They are expected to release the remaining emails on the 29th; however, they have asked for an extension as this last group of emails represents “the largest number of pages to date” with them also being “the most complex to process.”
So, does this matter for Clinton and her bid for the presidency, or is it BS? Well, of course, it matters. Can someone even run for president when they’ve been indicted? Stranger things have happened, and this is the most peculiar election in history after all.
However, with former New York City major Michael Bloomberg hinting at a run for the presidency as an Independent, it sounds like more than just Conservative fodder and hopes to me. People are nervous and rightfully so.
For me, if someone is suspected of breaking the law, they should face investigation and possible judgement regardless of what political dynasty they come from. I promise that’s not the Bernie Sanders supporter inside me talking. I’d hold the same opinion for him as well as I would any Conservative candidate.
Only time will tell what’s ahead for Clinton.
