Dick Morris: Indicting Hillary in Email Probe More Political Than Judicial Issue

Newsmax TV's "Newsmax Prime"

The question of whether Hillary Clinton could be indicted in the email scandal is "more of a political decision than a judicial one," political strategist Dick Morris told Newsmax TV on Friday.

"The FBI will investigate … and will come to a judgment as to whether she violated the law," Morris told "Newsmax Prime" host J.D. Hayworth. "Assuming that they decide that she did, then they refer it to the Justice Department, which has to decide whether or not to prosecute.

"That decision will be made by Loretta Lynch, the United States attorney general, who is of course a political appointee of President [Barack] Obama.

"Now, we go back to the political side of the equation," Morris continued, "particularly if Clinton remains the Democratic presidential front-runner and becomes the eventual nominee.

"They're probably not going to indict her because it would be to take the election away from the voters and have the Justice Department decide it — and certainly not to knock out a Democratic Party nominee is something this administration wouldn't do."

However, if "she's mired in a tough contest or if somebody else is ahead or if there's a real sense that she's not able to carry it off," another candidate — possibly Vice President Joe Biden — could step in.

That way, Morris told Hayworth, "an indictment might be a very interesting way to get her out and might all be wrapped up then into a plea bargain: Get out of the race, turn your delegates over to Biden, and there'll be no indictment.

"Hillary would rather die than make that kind of a deal, but it's maybe a choice she has."
