FBI Said To Move To "Likely Indictment" Of Clinton Foundation, Fox News Reports

According to Fox News' Bret Bair, the Clinton Foundation investigation is far more expansive than anybody has reported so far and has been going on for more than a year, and notes that "The investigations will continue, there is a lot of evidence. And barring some obstruction in some way, [FBI sources] believe they will continue to likely an indictment."

Donald Trump says this is worse than Watergate. As of now, it is only potentially so. But if Hillary Clinton, this distrusted and disbelieved woman, does take the oath of office on Jan. 20, there is a real possibility that, like Nixon, down the road a year or two, she could be forced from office.
