Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch plans to announce on Friday that she will accept whatever recommendation career prosecutors and the F.B.I. director make about whether to bring charges related to Hillary Clinton’s personal email server, a Justice Department official said. Her decision removes the possibility that a political appointee will overrule investigators in the case.As someone who has been following this case closely (BAE Systems, anyone?), I believe that Hillary will be indicted not only for mishandling of classified information but for influence peddling. The highly-politicized DOJ was the only stonewall between the FBI and the courts, and now that's gone.
The Justice Department had been moving toward such an arrangement for months — officials said in April that it was being considered — but a private meeting between Ms. Lynch and former President Bill Clinton this week set off a political furor and made the decision all but inevitable.
Why did Bill do it? There's a conspiracy theory that he does not want to be "First Husband" and this would seem to bolster that argument.
