Will the FBI Revolt over Indicting Hillary?
Don Surber reports on former federal prosecutor Joseph diGenova:
He told radio talker Laura Ingraham: "They have reached a critical mass in their investigation of the secretary and all of her senior staff. And, it's going to come to a head, I would suggest, in the next 60 days."
DiGenova seems to be a reliable source given his background (he helped prosecute John Hinckley) and his clientele.
"It"s going to be a very complex matter for the Department of Justice, but they're not going to be able to walk away from it," DiGenova said. "They are now at over 1,200 classified emails. And, that's just for the ones we know about from the State Department. That does not include the ones that the FBI is, in fact, recovering from her hard drives."
DiGenova is not saying what the charges are, but he said he believes the FBI will have enough to charge her. However, the White House has to sign off before they seek an indictment.
"I believe that the evidence that the FBI is compiling will be so compelling that, unless [Lynch] agrees to the charges, there will be a massive revolt inside the FBI, which she will not be able to survive as an attorney general. It will be like Watergate. It will be unbelievable," DiGenova said.
(Hat tip, Glenn.)
Don admits right away that DiGenova is indulging in speculation. And to that I'd add that I'll believe it when I see it -- and not one moment before. This Administration plays Executive Branch Hardball harder than any Administration before it. The FBI had years to "revolt" while under Eric Holder's thumb, and showed no signs of doing so. When the fate of the next Democratic president is at risk, the stakes are that much higher and so will be the pressure to do whatever Lynch and Obama decree.
On the other hand, this is already the craziest presidential race in my lifetime, and I'm mentally prepared for it to get crazier still.
