Fox News Special Report anchor Bret Baier reports that two sources with “intimate knowledge” of the Clinton Foundation FBI investigation say that an indictment is “likely” down the road in the case. “I pressed again and again on this very issue, and these sources said, ‘Yes, the investigations will continue,’” if Hillary Clinton defeats Donald Trump on election day, Baier said Wednesday night. His sources added, as he said, “There is a lot of evidence.”
“And barring some obstruction in some way, they believe they’ll continue to likely an indictment,” Baier said.
Baier made the bombshell announcement in an appearance with his fellow anchor on Brit Hume’s program On The Record, after earlier on his own program breaking the news that the FBI was indeed investigating the Clinton Foundation and the investigation was expansive, wide-reaching, and has gone on for a year.
Twin reports—from Fox’s Baier and from CNN’s Pamela Brown, who along with her fellow CNN Justice Department correspondent Evan Perez said she talked with a dozen sources in positions of knowledge—confirmed that the criminal investigation into the Clinton Foundation is active, ongoing, and expansive at the FBI. It has apparently been going on for a year, and politically motivated officials at the Department of Justice—controlled by Attorney General Loretta Lynch—have reportedly tried repeatedly to shut it down. But according to another bombshell report from the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday night, FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe would not shut it down, calling it a “validly predicated investigation” in conversations with DOJ officials.
Jason Miller, senior communications adviser to GOP presidential nominee Donald J. Trump’s campaign, issued a blistering a statement in response to the news:
Today’s reports that the FBI has an open investigation into the Clinton Foundation shows the true extent of the corrupt Clinton cash machine. Even more concerning than that is the fact that the Obama Department of Justice is refusing to allow an overt investigation until after the election. Not only is it completely disqualifying for a candidate for president to be facing two separate FBI investigations less than a week before the election, but the fact that the Obama Administration is so blatantly trying to tip the scales of justice toward Clinton should give every American pause.
A Clinton campaign spokesman has not responded to a Breitbart News request for comment in response to Baier’s report of a likely indictment looming after the election.
The FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation is separate from, but running parallel to, the now reopened criminal investigation into Clinton’s illicit home-brew email server that she set up in violation of State Department guidelines.
