MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said he was “surprised” that the Associated Press is now calling Hillary Clinton the presumptive Democratic nominee because the superdelegates said to support her still haven’t voted. (RELATED: AP: Hillary Clinton Has Enough Delegates To Win The Democratic Nomination)

“Calling her the presumptive nominee, we don’t know what happens between now and the convention,” he said Tuesday on “Morning Joe.” “The superdelegates vote at the convention. You can’t put those in her column until we see what happens. There are other things going on. There are investigations going on. I think you wait until actually the superdelegates vote.” (WATCH: Napolitano: ‘Ample Evidence’ To Indict Clinton, Only Lynch Or Obama Could Prevent It)

“Trump’s the presumptive nominee, but I guess …” Brzezinski began.

Scarborough broke in, “But Trump is over his number and he doesn’t have to wait to see how people are going to vote at the convention.”

Clinton is currently under FBI investigation for her use of a private email account and server while she was secretary of state. According to Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano, there is “ample evidence to indict” Clinton for espionage.
