The FBI is ready to recommend that Hillary Clinton be indicted for mishandling classified information, former House majority leader Tom DeLay said on The Steve Malzberg Show Monday. Delay echoed what both columnist Charles Krauthammer and famed attorney Joe diGenova have said in the past month about what will happen if Attorney General Loretta Lynch refuses to bring charges against Clinton. That is, FBI investigators are prepared to make a stink if Clinton’s offenses are swept under the rug.
“I have friends that are in the FBI and they tell me they’re ready to indict,” said DeLay. “They’re ready to recommend an indictment and they also say that if the attorney general does not indict, they’re going public.” The most recent revelations about the above-top-secret classification of some of the emails that ended up on Clinton’s private, unsecured system, appear to be, as PJ Media’s Andrew McCarthy described it, “gravely criminal.”
“One way or another, either she’s going to be indicted and that process begins, or we try her in the public eye with her campaign,” DeLay said Monday. “One way or another, she’s going to have to face these charges.”
Earlier this month, former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova claimed that if AG Loretta Lynch failed to indict, there would be a “massive revolt inside the FBI, which she will not be able to survive as an attorney general.” DiGenova told radio talk show host Laura Ingraham that there was a “vitriol of an intense amount” developing among the intelligence community, who would “fight to the death” to make sure Hillary and her staff face justice for mishandling the classified information. He said that two of his FBI sources told him that “they are already in the process of gearing themselves to basically revolt if she refuses to bring charges.”
Washington Post columnist and Fox News commentator Krauthammer predicted on Fox News’ Special Report a week later that there would be mass resignations if the DOJ doesn’t move forward with an FBI recommendation. “If it happens and then it’s squashed so it doesn’t actually go forward, I can imagine the career lawyers in the FBI — the career people — are going to resign en masse. It will be like the Saturday Night Massacre,” Krauthammer predicted.
