Journalist Mark Halperin cited sources inside the FBI to assert that the Hillary Clinton email investigation is going to yield potentially “cataclysmic” results for the Democratic candidate.
In a “Morning Joe” appearance Friday morning, Halperin shared his findings with host Joe Scarborough.
“All of our sources high up are telling us — and Nicolle is hearing the same thing, that this investigation’s far more advanced than we the public knows. What are you hearing?” Scarborough asked Halperin.
“Well, there are three things people are keying off of, Joe. First of all, there’s a lot of chatter amongst FBI agents, many of whom have never been big fans of the Clintons, but a lot of FBI agents seem to be saying something is happening here,” Halperin replied.
Second is, from a legal point of view, you look at some of the recent developments we’ve talked about here on the program, it’s hard to see how the Justice Department, the FBI, doesn’t want to interview Secretary Clinton. And that interview alone short of an indictment, short of anything else, that would be a huge political development, it would undermine confidence in some Democrats in the notion of going forward with Secretary Clinton.
And the last thing is there are some people in the White House who are starting to talk about this. It’s not clear to me whether they know what’s happening or there’s just their intuition but the body language among some Obama administration officials is: this is more serious and something’s going to happen. Again, the timing of it could be, if not cataclysmic, pretty bad for Secretary Clinton.
