http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/fbi-interview-hillary-clinton-coming-days-email-scandal/story?id=40291561

The Justice Department's goal is to complete the investigation and make recommendations on whether charges should be filed before the two major party conventions take place toward the latter half of July, the source said.

3. If it goes south and the worst case happens what do you think will happen?

Will Hillary's delegates back Berrnie or will it go to Elisabeth Warren or Joe Biden.

7. Warren. Sanders blew his chance with his ungracious refusal to endorse.

14. I'm not sure but I think we'd be in uncharted territory.

Has any nominee ever been indicted before a convention? Sounds like it could be a good premise for a novel.

My guess is that Sanders would fight like hell but the Clinton delegates and the DNC would fall in behind a respected elder statesman--a Joe Biden or Jerry Brown type. (Nah not Brown--too independent minded).

My wildcard candidate if things go south--Nancy Pelosi.

BTW, I don't think she'll be indicted but thanks to Bill's mucking around with the AG this is not going away as quickly as one would hope.

17. All you guys above realize this is the END of the dreams

of some that Bernie could somehow win by accident? The "case" will be that Hillary continues campaigning through July, is formally chosen as our nominee at the convention (balloons and confetti will drop as people cheer and lights flash, etc.), and continues campaigning.

6. It needs to happen, regardless of the outcome

 

if it's bad news for Hillary it's also bad news for Dems. I wanted Bernie to win the nomination, but not this way.

8. That's great news.

The sooner this is over, the better.

Does anyone actually think that HRC knowingly and willfully mishandled classified documents or (alternatively) exercised gross negligence in their handling?

These are among the necessary conditions set forth in Title 18. Absent those prerequisites, no crime has been committed.

If you think that these necessary conditions have been fulfilled, then you would also have to conclude that many of the people who sent emails to Clinton at her private server address are also open to prosecution for the same offense.

13. Question because

I'm pretty much a cavewoman when it comes to server issues. How would the respondents to anything Clinton sent out necessarily know anything about her server? Could they not just assume all was in order and aboveboard?

18. Lol. Didn't your mommy tell you? There is no indictment fairy.

Sorry, but I suspect you're old enough to face the truth.
