Bernie Sanders’ wife, Jane Sanders, has urged FBI investigators to hurry up in disclosing their findings on the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
During an interview with Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto Coast to Coast” show, Sanders said “it would be nice” if the FBI sped up its investigation of the potentially illegal use of an email server when Clinton was Secretary of State.
“We said right from the beginning, right after the debate where he said, ‘enough of your damn emails,’ he also said, ‘there’s a process…it’s going forward,'” Jane Sanders said Thursday on Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto Coast to Coast.”
“It’s an FBI investigation…we want to let it go through without politicizing it and then we’ll find out what the situation is and that’s how we still feel. I mean, it would be nice if the FBI moved it along,” she said with a laugh.
Which is odd, because Democrats (and the DOJ) would be delighted it he investigation is stalled indefinitely as has been the case under what many have speculated is political pressure.
Clinton told CBS’ “Face the Nation” in March that the email scandal was “moving toward a resolution” and predicted that the investigation was “getting closer and closer” to being complete. Close… just 8 more months, ideally with the election in the rearview mirror.
Meanwhile, in her interview, Jane Sanders also said that her husband and Clinton have “very different visions for America”, repeating the same complaint popularized by Trump, namely that the delegate selection process isn’t fair.
“It doesn’t seem fair that superdelegates can play such an outsized role,” she said. “We don’t like the concept of the superdelegates. It’s pretty much an insurance policy for the establishment.”
Her surprising statement comes after Sanders only won one out of five primaries on Tuesday. He won Rhode Island while Clinton won Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania, expanding her delegate lead. One can see why suddenly Bernie Sanders’ better half is agreeing with the republicans that it is time for Hillary’s dirty email laundry to be made public.
Sadly for Jane, as of this moment, online betting markets see about a one in five chance that Hillary will be charged.
