PROGRESSIVES TODAY — It’s probably wise for Democrats to consider this possibility. It’s not likely but it could happen and if it does the election will certainly be affected.

Hillary Clinton FBI Investigation: In Potential Nightmare Scenario For Democrats, FBI Indictment Could Come After Clinton Given The Nomination
Hillary Clinton is on a path to win the Democratic nomination, but the looming FBI investigation and the possibility of an indictment against the former Secretary of State is casting a pall over the race that could end up sending the Democratic Party scrambling later this summer.
Clinton is under FBI investigation for her alleged use of a private email server during her time as Secretary of State to share classified information. Though a growing number of legal experts believe that the investigation will end with an indictment for Clinton, it’s the timing that may be the biggest concern for the Democratic Party.
FBI Director James Comey said this week that the bureau is in no rush to finish the investigation before this summer’s Democratic National Convention.
“Somebody asked me if the Democratic National Convention is a hard stop or a key date for you? Are you doing this aimed at that? And I said, no,” he said via NBC News. “We aspire to do all our investigations in two ways — well and promptly, especially investigations that are of great interest to the public. We want to do them promptly.”
Comey added that there is growing pressure for the FBI to ensure that it is indeed completed “well and promptly,” but between the two he would make sure it’s done well.
This has the potential to make an already interesting election even crazier.
We’ll see what happens.
