Joe Scarborough, co-host of “Morning Joe,” suggested today on his eponymous program that presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has not yet suspended his campaign because he expects that the FBI will rule about its official probe into her use of a private email serve during her stint as Secretary of State.
“So, we were talking around the table what’s he doing here … there’s an Indiana poll that shows that race is pretty close,” Scarborough said. “Yeah, a four-point lead, so that’s tight. And he is right about super delegates, it would take something — like an FBI ruling — and who knows?”
Continuing, Scarborough said “Maybe that’s what he’s waiting for because obviously then we’d switch all the super delegates in his favor, giving him the nomination.” Hee added, “if [the investigation] didn’t go the way the Clintons wanted it to go.”
Scarborough also questioned why it is that FBI officials are apparently “dragging their feet” in indicting Clinton, while he said “there is a clear mishandling of classified information.”
“You talk to people in the intel community and they say that anybody else would be in prison right now,” Scarborough said. “Talk to anybody in the intelligence community that’s been doing this for 20 years they will all say, “If anybody mishandled classified information that way, they would be in jail.’”
Over the weekend, Sanders predicted that the coming Democratic national convention this July will be contested because Clinton will be unable to win with pledged delegates only.
