Hillary Clinton to be Interviewed by the FBI?
by

The FBI Clinton probe is, according to sources, nearing a close, which will be a big relief to the reported 147 FBI agents that are currently assigned to Nancy Drew and the Case of the Chappaqua Server. In just a few short weeks, there will be 147 beach vacations booked, probably lasting all the way through November.

But if the number of agents, obtained by the Washington Post, demonstrates anything, it’s that the Clinton case is actually pretty serious. No one assignes 147 FBI agents to just anything, unless it’s on a television show like Quantico. And while the Clinton camp has maintained that the story is nothing but the fever dream of a Republican political consultant, it’s now the candidate who is in the crossfire. According to the Los Angeles Times last night, Hillary Clinton herself is scheduled for a very private rendevous with a couple of curious government investigators.

No dates have been set for questioning the advisors, but a federal prosecutor in recent weeks has called their lawyers to alert them that he would soon be doing so, the sources said. Prosecutors also are expected to seek an interview with Clinton herself, though the timing remains unclear.

The interviews by FBI agents and prosecutors will play a significant role in helping them better understand whether Clinton or her aides knowingly or negligently discussed classified government secrets over a non-secure email system when she served as secretary of State.

Well, that’s bad timing. Sanders managed to snag every last primary and caucus this weekend, meaning that Clinton is now only about 250 delegates ahead (if you don’t count the Superdelegates she’s had locked in since last September), and the primary season is about to slow down dramatically. Only a handful of states will have a contest between now and May 1st, and most states are now holding their conventions. Things are wrapping up, and Bernie Sanders, who was given the momentum by a Snow White-like “sign from above” last week, can make the case that the popular vote is in his favor, no matter what Clinton has locked away. A drawn out, contested convention – or a dramatic, public protest – won’t look great, especially when the DNC is making every effort to be the “professional” and “sane” alternative to the Dumpster fire that is the RNC.

Could an indictment be on its way down? Possibly. The FBI could interview Clinton and decide she’s at fault. They could decide she’s completely clueless about the entire operation and its significance and let the whole party off the hook. Or they could fall somewhere in between, indicting her staff and friends, but leaving her alone. Interestingly enough, there seems to be no indication from the White House on which side they’d like to see the investigation fall. That could mean they’re preparing to defend Clinton. Or it could mean that they’re secretly helping Joe Biden shine his Trans Am in a Philadelphia garage, preparing him to drive onto the DNC’s show floor and declare his intention to rescue the Democratic party from certain doom. 

Stay tuned.
