Obama on FBI: We don't operate on innuendo*
"I do think that there is a norm that when there are investigations, we don't operate on innuendo and we don't operate on incomplete information and we don't operate on leaks," Obama said in the interview, which was taped Tuesday. "We operate based on concrete decisions that are made."
Report: Indictment ‘Likely' in Clinton Foundation FBI Investigation
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.”
Will Obama Pardon Hillary?
....Clinton's only option for a pardon is to be indicted, tried and convicted. There most definitely isn't enough time between now and Election Day (or until when Obama leaves office), for this scenario to play out.
NOTE by Glenn Spencer
I have been advised by a retired attorney that any of the 94 U.S. Attorneys can file an indictment, after having presented evidence to a grand jury. Such an indictment may have been already filed against the Clinton Foundation.
