Bernie Sanders is only one vote away from the Democratic nomination, and perhaps the White House: the FBI’s vote.
There is only one candidate under an active FBI investigation, our Hillary. That investigation, into the classified material that flowed through her private email server, holds criminality potential right up to and including violations of the Espionage Act. No one knows what the FBI has found, and no one knows what Obama will allow to be done with the information, but in a number of scenarios it is potentially game-changing. While it is unlikely that Hillary herself will go down (as if), a finding that she lied about her actions, and/or an indictment of one of her staff, is at least possible.
So it is just sweet that Bernie’s wife Jane, in her delightfully underspoken way, said Thursday that “it would be nice” if the FBI speeds up its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server. “We said right from the beginning, right after the debate where he said, ‘enough of your damn emails,’ he also said, ‘there’s a process…it’s going forward,'” Jane Sanders explained.
“It’s an FBI investigation…we want to let it go through without politicizing it and then we’ll find out what the situation is and that’s how we still feel. I mean, it would be nice if the FBI moved it along,” she said with a laugh.
Clinton meanwhile has repeatedly said she’s not concerned about any ole’ investigation and maintains the FBI has not reached out to her to schedule an interview over the server. That was just after the State Department announced it would halt its internal review of Clinton’s emails and defer to the FBI. Clinton told CBS’ “Face the Nation” that the email scandal was “moving toward a resolution” and predicted that the investigation was “getting closer and closer” to being complete.
Well, FBI, we and Jane are waiting…
