It seems that Hillary Clinton’s email scandal is getting ready to come to a crucial point.
On Wednesday, Mediaite reported that Al Jazeera America’s David Shuster said Clinton could face the FBI and Director James Comey “in a matter of days.”
“Because there is now every sign the Clinton email investigation is quickly headed towards a conclusion, whether it’s her exoneration or indictment. In terms of timing, sources expect the conclusion to come in weeks, not months. And they add that Hillary Clinton’s interview with the FBI, which could come in days, could be crucial,” he said (Emphasis added).
According to Shuster:
While Hillary Clinton fights for the Democratic presidential nomination, law enforcement officials tell Al Jazeera America the Federal Investigation into her personal email system while she was Secretary of State has reached a critical stage.
The FBI, led by Director James Comey, has now finished examining Clinton’s private emails and home server. And the sources add that Comey’s FBI team has been joined by the Justice Department prosecutors. Together, they are now examining the evidence, analyzing relevant laws, and attempting to arrange interviews with key figures in the investigation.
Those interviews, according to attorneys, will include former State Department aides Philippe Reines, Former Clinton Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, and Clinton herself.
Soon after those interviews — in the next few days and weeks — officials expect Director Comey to make his recommendation to Attorney General Loretta Lynch about potential criminal charges.
Clinton has admitted making a mistake in using a private email server, but maintains her innocence.
As Mediaite’s Joe Concha noted, the outcome of her interview “could end up changing the entire race for the White House.”
