Former FBI Official Predicts Hillary’s Indictment Will Come During ‘Heat Of The General Election’

Six months after the FBI began their investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server, sources believe that an indictment might fall during the “the heat of the general election campaign.”

Former FBI assistant director Ron Hosko told The Hill that he doesn’t “know that there’s any magical cutoff date,” and that the protracted length of the probe is not unusual for such investigations.

Furthermore, University of New Hampshire political science professor Andrew Smith notes that the drawn-out investigation does not indicate a lack of a case against the former secretary of state.

“It does give pause to Democrats who are concerned that there may be another shoe to drop down the road,” Smith told The Hill.

Hosko’s prediction comes only days after Clinton herself stated that she “never sent or received any material marked classified.” (VIDEO: Hillary — ‘I’m Not Concerned’ About The FBI’s Investigation)

“This is something that I think is very clear about what happened and I know it will be over and resolved at some point,” Clinton told Chuck Todd on Sunday.
