On Wednesday night, Fox News reported that, according to FBI sources, an indictment of Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton is likely. Anchor Brett Baier claimed that “barring some obstruction in some way”, an indictment is likely, though no time-frame for the process was suggested and no verification of the reports has been offered. It is still unclear if or how this will affect her candidacy. One source allegedly told Baier “there is an avalanche of new information coming every day.”
I said sources described an “avalanche of evidence” in case & barring obstruction they’d likely continue 2 push to try for an indictment” https://t.co/2TjzxdJod1

The FBI investigation into what has been labelled “pay-for-play” has been going on for over a year. Based on two sources, the Fox News report claimed the investigation being performed by the FBI white-collar-crimes division was being expanded to include probes into the Clinton Foundation trading political favors for significant donations.
The sources also told Fox News that Mrs. Clinton’s private email server, which she used to handle classified information as secretary of state, had been breached by at least five hackers attached to foreign intelligence services and that material had been stolen from her server. If true, this would be a recent development since FBI Director James Comey said in July that he could not say definitively whether her server had been breached.
