Former Congressman Tom DeLay Says FBI Is Ready to Indict Hillary Clinton

Tom DeLay, a former Congressman, says he’s been informed that the FBI is ready to indict Hillary Clinton.

DeLay said in an appearance on NewsmaxTV that his friends in the FBI relayed to him the information.

If the attorney general does not indict, they’re going public.

“They’re ready to recommend an indictment and they also say that if the attorney general does not indict, they’re going public,” he claimed.

“So one way or another… she’s going to be indicted and that process begins or we try her in the public eye with her campaign. One way or another, she’s going to have to face these charges.”

The claim comes a couple weeks after former Republican federal prosecutor Joe DiGenova said he believed Clinton would face an indictment “in the next 60 days.”

It also came just before a reporter accused the Obama administration of delaying the probe into Clinton’s use of personal email while secretary of state until the first four states have voted in the Democratic primary.

Jason Leopold, a reporter at Vice, objects to the State Department’s scheduled March 1 release of the final 4,000 or so emails from the server, reported the Washington Times.

“If the court allows State to delay release of thousands of pages of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s official work emails, a substantial portion of the electorate will be forced to vote without the benefit of important information to which it is entitled about the performance of one of the candidates for U.S. president while serving as secretary of State,” said in his court filing.
