In a shocking potential game-changer, Fox News anchor Bret Baier announced Wednesday that sources inside the FBI say an indictment is likely in at least one of the investigations regarding Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
Baier cites two separate sources “with intimate knowledge of the FBI investigations into the Clinton emails and the Clinton Foundation.”
The Fox News anchor revealed that the investigation into the Clinton Foundation has been going on for more than a year, specifically examining the potential relationship between donations to the Clinton Foundation and access to then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
That investigation is led by the public corruption branch of the criminal investigative division of the FBI. Baier notes that this investigation began and multiple interviews were conducted prior to the leaked WikiLeaks emails from the account of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. One source told Baier that “there is an avalanche of new information coming every day.”
If accurate, one particular detail may be of concern to the Clinton camp. The FBI had previously negotiated limited immunity deals for Clinton aides Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson. As part of that deal, there was a tentative agreement that their laptops would be destroyed after a “narrow review.” Baier reported that those laptops have not been destroyed and are still in FBI custody.
The newly reopened email investigation is reportedly being conducted by the National Security division of the FBI. Sources indicate that emails found on the laptop shared by former congressman Anthony Weiner and his estranged wife, Clinton aide Huma Abedin, do contain new emails not previously submitted to the FBI. This contradicts claims from the Clinton campaign.
“Finally we learn that there is a confidence from these sources that [Hillary Clinton’s] server had been hacked. And that it was a 99 percent accuracy that it had been hacked by at least five foreign intelligence agencies, and that things had been taken from that.”
