The Case for Clinton's Indictment

One former U.S. attorney thinks the odds are pretty likely.

Will Hillary Clinton be indicted? This former U.S. attorney thinks so. Joe DiGenova, a Ronald Reagan appointee, says the FBI has “reached a critical mass in their investigation of the secretary and all of her senior staff, and, it’s going to come to a head, I would suggest, in the next 60 days.” He argues she’ll be indicted because Attorney General Loretta Lynch won’t be able to avoid it. “It’s going to be a very complex matter for the Department of Justice, but they’re not going to be able to walk away from it,” DiGenova said. “They are now at over 1,200 classified emails. And, that’s just for the ones we know about from the State Department. That does not include the ones that the FBI is, in fact, recovering from her hard drives. … I believe that the evidence that the FBI is compiling will be so compelling that, unless [Lynch] agrees to the charges, there will be a massive revolt inside the FBI, which she will not be able to survive as an attorney general. It will be like Watergate. It will be unbelievable.” Finally, he said, “The evidence against the Clinton staff and the secretary is so overwhelming at this point that if, in fact, she chooses not to charge Hillary, they will never be able to charge another federal employee with the negligent handling of classified information. The intelligence community will not stand for that. They will fight for indictment and they are already in the process of gearing themselves to basically revolt if she refuses to bring charges.” Of course, only time will tell, but it sure would be earth-moving if he’s right.
