No One At MSNBC Is Surprised That The FBI Might Want To Interview Hillary Clinton

The Washington Post reported on Sunday that the FBI has step up its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of private email server, which could result in Clinton sitting down for an interview with federal agents very soon.

This report was hardly seen as stunning on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” which, has long been critical of Clinton’s use of a private email server.

The National Journal’s Ron Fournier pointed out that the FBI investigation “has been beyond a procedural investigation from the beginning.”

Fournier went on to say:

FOURNIER: We know Hillary Clinton has not been honest about this and we show — it’s shown in the polls that most American’s think they can’t trust her. We know she showed a disregard for the Freedom of Information Act, a total disregard for the Freedom of Information Act for the whole idea of legislative oversight and for the whole idea of the value of a historical record.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough was furious that the involvement of 150 FBI agents into the investigation of Clinton’s server had gone so under reported. Scarborough concluded, “I don’t know how James Comey doesn’t do something definitive, election year or not.”

NBC’s Kasie Hunt reported that “Democrats are privately still really nervous” about this ongoing FBI investigation.

Bloomberg’s Mark Halperin said of this report:

HALPERIN: When this interview takes place, she will be under pressure to explain. Because whether she broke the law or not, whether a democratic justice department indicts her or not or makes her a target or not, it’s clear she was cavalier about this and people are uncomfortable with what she did.

This report of a potential interview between Clinton and the FBI won’t help Clinton’s honest and trustworthy numbers, which have been problematic for her during the Democratic primary.
