Clinton Email Investigation Wraps, FBI Interview Looms

The Federal Bureau of Investigation completed its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s personal email server and will interview her soon to decide whether to file criminal charges, reports Mediaite.

 

FBI director James Comey will likely interview Clinton in the next few days. Former Clinton Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills and former State Department staffer Philippe Reines may also be interviewed by FBI investigators and Department of Justice prosecutors.

“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,” reports Al Jazeera America reporter, David Shuster, on the 7:00 p.m. EST nightly newscast Wednesday.

Because the Clinton email investigation is under a time constraint with the 2016 presidential election quickly approaching, sources expect to see the year-long investigation conclude–whether an indictment or exoneration–in the next few weeks. In order for that to occur, Clinton must go before Comey in a matter of days for an interview that could affect the entire race for the White House.

Depending on the findings of Clinton’s, Mills’, and Reines’ interviews, Comey will make his recommendation to Attorney General Loretta Lynch regarding potential criminal charges.

Comey’s recommendation to Lynch could include a description of the evidence; what laws, if any, might have been violated; and how confident he is in the results of the probe, the sources familiar with the investigation tell TIME.

“If the evidence is there, it’s there. If it leads to something inconclusive, or nothing, he’s not going to recommend filing charges,” said John Giacalone, the former Executive Assistant Director of FBI’s National Security Branch.
