Al Jazeera’s David Shuster reported Wednesday that the FBI is wrapping up its investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email server and is rapidly approaching a decision as to whether to recommend criminal charges be brought.

Shuster, who was previously with both Fox News and MSNBC, added that the decision to indict Clinton will come after she’s interviewed by FBI Director James Comey in the coming days.

Shuster reported:

While Hillary Clinton fights for the Democratic presidential nomination, law enforcement officials tell Al Jazeera America the Federal Investigation into her personal email system while she was Secretary of State has reached a critical stage.

The FBI, led by Director James Comey, has now finished examining Clinton’s private emails and home server. And the sources add that Comey’s FBI team has been joined by the Justice Department prosecutors. Together, they are now examining the evidence, analyzing relevant laws, and attempting to arrange interviews with key figures in the investigation.

Those interviews, according to attorneys, will include former State Department aides Philippe Reines, Former Clinton Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, and Clinton herself.

Soon after those interviews — in the next few days and weeks — officials expect Director Comey to make his recommendation to Attorney General Loretta Lynch about potential criminal charges.

 

Although she admitted in an ABC interview last year that it was a mistake to use her private server to conduct official State Department business, she nonetheless continues to claim that she has never sent or received anything marked “secured.”

“Because there is now every sign the Clinton email investigation is quickly headed towards a conclusion, whether it’s her exoneration or indictment,” Shuster concluded.

“In terms of timing, sources expect the conclusion to come in weeks, not months. And they add that Hillary Clinton’s interview with the FBI, which could come in days, could be crucial.”
