Sanders superdelegate: Clinton won’t be indicted

A superdelegate supporting Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders says Hillary Clinton, the Democratic front-runner, will not be indicted over her email server.

“I really do not believe that Hillary Clinton is going to be indicted,” Erin Bilbray, a Democratic National Committee member, said Tuesday on Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Co.”

“I want to stress again: I do not think Hillary Clinton will be indicted.”

The FBI is expected to wrap up its investigation into Clinton’s email server soon.

FBI Director James Comey said last month that his agency feels no pressure to finish its probe before the Democratic National Convention in July.

“The urgency is to do it well and do it promptly,” he said “And ‘well’ comes first. [I’m staying close] to this one to make sure we have the resources to do it competently.”

Clinton said last week that the FBI has not contacted her about its investigation into her technology habits while serving as secretary of State.

She has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing with the server, adding it was never used to send classified information.

Critics argue that Clinton’s use of a private email server at the State Department potentially exposed sensitive national intelligence.

Clinton leads Sanders in the Democratic presidential race. She has 1,705 pledged delegates to Sanders’s 1,415. 

Bilbray is the daughter of former Rep. James Bilbray (D-Nev.). She mounted her own failed congressional run in 2014, losing to incumbent Rep. Joe Heck (R-Nev.).
