There will be even more "explosive revelations" coming from Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's email scandal, MSNBC "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough said Monday, just a few days after the Justice Department withheld 22 emails after determining they were "top secret."

"A couple people held their breath when we talked about it the other day," Scarborough commented. "Everybody in the government, everybody in the media, everybody that runs anything knows how advanced this investigation is and nobody's telling the American people about it...We talked about it. Then that afternoon, explosive revelations came out and there are more."

Bloomberg Politics Managing Editor Mark Halperin, a panelist on the show, commented that further developments on the legal front could possibly allow Clinton's main competition, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders to win primaries, even if he loses Monday's Iowa caucuses, and he'll be able to do it with "lots of money" and debates on the schedule, after raising $20 million in January alone.

"There's an undefined element in [the Democrat's] campaign that will impact the campaign sooner or later and that's what's going to happen in the Justice Department," said Halperin. "I mean, you can just sense among Democrats … they're right on the edge of their seats trying to figure out what will happen and what determining factor that's going to play in the nomination process."

Further, Halperin added, "There are more problems with [Clinton's] emails, more questions about how it was handled. Look, the legal calendar, we don't know what it is."

Panelist John Heilemann also noted that in the past 48 hours, Sanders has been speaking about Clinton's emails, where just a couple of months ago, he famously commented, during a debate, that "the American public is sick of hearing about your damn emails."

"Asked about it a couple of days ago, he said, 'Oh, I don't think it's irrelevant at all, there's a process playing out here.'" said Heilemann said of the Vermont senator.  "You can easily imagine Sanders not attacking her personally on this but him now saying, 'Hey look, this is something we have to think about and bring into a discussion in a more active way.'"

"When Bernie Sanders is hearing from top leaders in the Obama administration that this is further along than expected, he doesn't want to be caught saying it's not a big deal and then having the FBI suggest it is," Scarborough responded.

"There's just too much buzz around it from all different levels of government, media, and everything to ignore it, and Bernie is no longer ignoring it," show panelist Mike Barnicle agreed.
