Hillary Clinton is the presumptive nominee for the Democratic Party. She is comprehensively in front of Bernie Sanders.
But she has big problems. The biggest one is the noises coming out of the FBI:
Federal Bureau of Investigations Director James Comey is ‘increasingly convinced’ that Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton broke the law with her private email setup, says the New York Post, citing unnamed ‘career agents.’
The paper charges that Comey is contemplating pushing for charges but doesn’t have the backing of the Obama White House, who would like to see Clinton elected over Republican frontrunner Donald Trump.
Without such political will, agents have begun whispering to their friends in the private sector, telling them Comey is getting stonewalled, writes reporter Charles Gasparino.
The official government line is a ‘no comment’ from the FBI.
Any evidence that the FBI uncovered has still not been made public.
The government says no final decision has been made, however the case is clearly progressing as Clinton aide Bryan Pagliano, who worked on her private server, was granted immunity by the Justice Department earlier this month.
‘You don’t start granting people close to Clinton immunity unless you are seriously looking at charges against your target,’ one of Gasparino’s sources said.
Clinton has publicly said that using a private email account attached to a homebrew server was a ‘mistake.’
Mainly ‘because it’s caused all this uproar and commotion.’
