In case anyone thought Hillary Clinton might finally face justice White House spokesman Josh Earnest all but ended those thoughts.
During his daily briefing Earnest was asked by a reporter if he could “say with certainty and confidence that Secretary Clinton will not be indicted because of this email scandal.”
Earnest was careful with his answer but indicated prosecution was unlikely.
“That will be a decision that is made by the Department of Justice and prosecutors over there,” he told the reporter. “What I know that some officials over there have said is that she is not a target of the investigation, so that does not seem to be the direction that it’s trending. But I’m certainly not going to weigh in on a decision or in that process in any way. That is a decision to be made solely by independent prosecutors but again, based on what we know from the Department of Justice, it does not seem to be headed in that direction.”
Watch the exchange below.
