via NYDAILY: The FBI is “ready to indict” Hillary Clinton for her handling of classified information on a private email server during her time as Secretary of State, former House Majority Leader Tom Delay said.
“I have friends that are in the FBI, and they tell me they’re ready to indict, they’re ready to recommend an indictment,” Delay said during an interview for Newsmax TV’s “Steve Malzberg Show.” “And they also say that if the attorney general does not indict, they’re going public. So one way or another, either she’s gonna be indicted, and that process begins, or we try her in the public eye with her campaign. One way or another, she’s gonna have to face these charges.”
Despite the Texas Republican’s assertions, the FBI itself cannot present an indictment on its own — a federal grand jury would be needed to bring charges against Clinton.
SOME EMAILS ON HILLARY CLINTON’S PRIVATE SERVER WERE CLASSIFIED BEYOND EVEN ‘TOP SECRET,’ IG REPORT CLAIMS
Delay should be familiar with the legal system, as a grand jury indicted him in 2005 on a campaign finance charge. He was convicted of money laundering and conspiracy in 2010, but that conviction was later overturned.
Now a Washington Times radio host, Delay believes the Democratic front-runner for the 2016 nomination is going to face new scrutiny for her prior email use.
“The media’s not gonna be able to ignore this when you got FBI agents and others out there, talking about what they got,” Delay added.
Clinton used a home server while she served as Secretary of State — and some of the classified emails found on her server were even more sensitive than top secret, an inspector general for the intelligence community has said.
