Benghazi Republican 'hopeful' that Clinton will be indicted
WASHINGTON - A Republican member of the House Benghazi committee says he is "hopeful" that the Justice Department will indict Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for having classified information on her private email server.
Rep. Mike Pompeo of Kansas says there is increasing evidence that "an enormous amount of information" on Clinton's private server is classified. He told conservative radio host Lars Larson that there is "only one answer that can be reached, and I am hopeful that will be the outcome that the FBI achieves."
Pompeo's comments came as the panel interviewed former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta behind closed doors on Friday. The remarks are the latest by a congressional Republican suggesting an unfavorable judgment against Clinton before the committee or the FBI concludes their respective investigations.
