It’s only a matter of time before Hillary Clinton is called to testify on the FBI investigation surrounding her private email server. She certainly would like to be Madam President before that happens, to remove any political consequences her testimony brings.
Unfortunately, if there was any real threat of her going to prison over this, the Democrat establishment wouldn’t be backing her. Still, as Twitchy reports, the timing of when she’ll be called to testify over this could still put a dent in public opinion ahead of the election in November.
It might be hard to believe, but Sanders is doing conservatives a huge favor by motivating progressive Democrats to join in their demand that Clinton’s scandals be investigated. And if the timeline in Judicial Watch’s approved discovery plan plays out as scheduled, Hillary Clinton might be called to testify just weeks before the Democratic National Convention.

Although the judge has left open the possibility of Clinton testifying based on information learned during discovery, top Clinton aides will be called upon to testify first. They include Clinton’s chief of staff Cheryl Mills, deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin, Bryan Pagliano, who set up and maintained Clinton’s server, and three others.
Judicial Watch reports that the discovery will take place over the next eight weeks, meaning it would conclude in July, followed by a determination whether to call Clinton to testify — meaning that things could really heat up for Clinton this summer.
It turns out a famous statement from Sanders was wrong. People really DO care about her damn email after all!
