Bloomberg Politics host Mark Halperin hinted at major developments in the Hillary Clinton email scandal on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Friday, citing White House and FBI sources.
When discussing the contentious national debate about whether Clinton broke the law, host Joe Scarborough alluded to government sources telling him the FBI’s Clinton email investigation was “far more progressed” than they are letting on.
Scarborough said that he and co-host Mika Brzezinski “have been hearing it from the top officials in the Obama administration for actually several months now… and [guest Nicolle Wallace] is hearing the same thing: that this investigation’s far more advanced than we the public know.”
Halperin agreed, saying there was “a lot of chatter amongst FBI agents, many of whom have never been big fans of the Clintons, but a lot of FBI agents seem to be saying something’s happening here.”
“There are some people in the White House who are starting to talk about this,” he continued. “It’s not clear to me whether they know what’s happening or there’s just their intuition, but the body language among some Obama administration officials is this is more serious and something’s going to happen.”
“Again, the timing of it could be, if not cataclysmic, pretty bad for Secretary Clinton, especially if Bernie Sanders is still alive,” Halperin concluded.
