Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert told the Washington Examiner that he believes the FBI will not recommend an indictment for Hillary Clinton in the email probe case.

The Republican lawmaker said he believed the FBI would announce that they were "just laying out the evidence," and leave it to the Justice Department to issue any indictment.

"Director Comey is a pretty straight-up guy, and I don't think he'll pull any punches," Gohmert said, referring to FBI Director James Comey. "But I could also see him avoiding all the controversy by just saying, here's all the evidence, it's not our job to indict."

Gohmert, a Texas state judge who spent ten years in the Army's Judge Advocate General Corps, said he believed evidence shows Clinton should be indicted.

However, he explained that he didn't believe she would be, unless she spoke negatively about the president.

"If she were to turn around and start criticizing Obama herself, I could see her being indicted very quickly," Gohmert told the Examiner.

The FBI has been investigating Clinton for alleged mishandling of confidential emails during her time as secretary of state.

Gohmert mentioned that if Clinton doesn't win the presidency, he hopes the next president takes up her case.

"We've got to have a Republican president come in and say, this is a cesspool here in the executive branch, and we are going to clean it out," the Texas legislator said.

Gohmert has expressed before his belief that Clinton should be indicted: in January, Right Wing Watch reported that Gohmet told Breitbart News the Obama administration has evidence against Clinton, and "if they want to use it, they can."

Gohmert supported Ted Cruz for president, but said on Fox Business that he would support Donald Trump if Trump apologized for his treatment of Cruz and Carly Fiorina.
