Democratic political analyst and Fox News contributor Doug Schoen announced Sunday that in light of Hillary Clinton’s FBI criminal investigation being re-launched, he can no longer support the Democratic presidential nominee.
He made the announcement to Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner on “Fox Report Weekend,” saying that if Clinton were to be elected, the country could face a constitutional crisis.

“As you know, I have been a supporter of Secretary Clinton… But given that this investigation is going to go on for many months after the election… But if the secretary of State wins, we will have a president under criminal investigation, with Huma Abedin under criminal investigation, with the secretary of State, the president-elect, should she win under investigation,” he reasoned.
“Harris, under these circumstances, I am actively reassessing my support.” he concluded. “I’m not a Trump –”
At that point Faulkner interrupted him, asking, “Whoa, whoa, wait a minute. You are not going to vote for Hillary Clinton?”
“Harris, I’m deeply concerned that we’ll have a constitutional crisis if she’s elected,” Schoen said. “I want to learn more this week. See what we see. But as of today, I am not a supporter of the Secretary of State for the nation’s highest office.”
He later admitted that he’d known the Clintons and been their friends for 22 years, but can no longer support her “because of the impact on the governance of the country and our international situation.”
Social media went nuts with the news.

But at least one thought it was just Schoen looking out for Schoen.

FBI Director James Comey announced Sunday that his agency secured a warrant to search the emails contained on a computer used by disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner and his estranged wife, long-time Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
Since Comey announced that he was re-launching the FBI investigation into Clinton’s email scandal, most Democrats have slammed the FBI director, with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid even calling the move a possible illegal act.
