Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Bloomberg’s Mark Halperin said that there were signs there was something happening regarding the FBI’s investigation of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s email server while she was secretary of state and the FBI was also interested in interviewing Clinton.
Host Joe Scarborough asked Halperin what he was hearing after acknowledging that White House officials had conveyed to him the investigation was “far more advanced than we the public knows.”
“Yeah, well, there are three things people are keying off of,” Halperin explained. “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. 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 and would undermine confidence in some Democrats in the notion of going forward with Secretary Clinton.”
“The last thing is, there are some people in the White House are starting to talk about this,” he added. “It’s not clear whether they know what’s happening or it’s just their intuition but the body language among some Obama administration officials is, this is more serious and something is going to happen. Again, the timing of it could be if not cataclysmic pretty bad for Secretary Clinton if Senator Sanders is still alive.”
