This Saturday, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton took a break from her campaign and met with the Federal Bureau of Investigations for more than three hours. Apparently, the former secretary of state was investigated regarding her use of a private email server, while leading the State Department.
“Secretary Clinton gave a voluntary interview this morning about her email arrangements while she was secretary,” campaign spokesman Nick Merrill said in a statement. “She is pleased to have had the opportunity to assist the Department of Justice in bringing this review to a conclusion. Out of respect for the investigative process, she will not comment further on her interview.”
It could end sooner than expected
According to CNN Politics, this whole email scandal had a negative impact on Hillary Clinton‘s campaign, making a lot of potential voters to question her overall trustworthiness.
Despite FBI’s refusal to comment about the meeting, it’s definitely a sign that the investigation is coming to an end and we can only wait for them to conclude its probe.
Of course, it’s less likely that in the upcoming weeks, Hillary Clinton‘s campaign or the FBI will announce that no charges are being brought against her, according to some source familiar with the investigation, quoted by CNN.
It has been previously reported that this will happen, since there isn’t any evidence until now to warrant charges. It is also very possible that the Justice Department is planning to end up the investigation before the Republican and Democratic conventions.
A negative conclusion could end Hillary’s campaign
On the other side, if Hillary Clinton would be accused, the Democrats might end up picking another nominee.
Finally, it’s worth mentioning that Donald Trump believes that it’s impossible for her to get away with this. “What she did was wrong! What Bill did was stupid!” the businessman said in a tweet.
