BRET BAIER: Two separate sources with intimate knowledge of the FBI investigations into the Clinton emails and the Clinton Foundation tell Fox the following: The investigation looking into possible pay-for-play interaction between Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the foundation has been going on for more than a year. The Clinton Foundation investigation is a “very high priority.” Agents have interviewed and reinterviewed multiple people about the foundation case, and even before the WikiLeaks dumps, these sources said agents had collected a great deal of evidence. Pressed on that, one sources said, “A lot of it,” and, “There is an avalanche of new information coming in every day.” As a result of the limited immunity deals to a number of top aides, including Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson, the Justice Department had tentatively agreed that the FBI would destroy those laptops after a narrow review. We are told definitively that has not happened. Those devices are currently in the FBI field office here in Washington, D.C., and are being exploited. There has been some angst about Attorney General Loretta Lynch and what she has done or not done. She obviously did not impanel or go to a grand jury at the beginning. They also have a problem, these sources do, with what President Obama said today and back in October of 2015.
BRIT HUME: We’ll get to that later on but he downplayed it today. He said something that suggested he’s changed his tune a bit about [FBI] Director [James] Comey. This does not sound like something that’s going to be completed anytime soon, which suggests that if Hillary Clinton is elected, she will take office with not one but two serious investigations of her past conduct hanging over her.

BAIER: Definitely. And I pressed again and again on this very issue, and these sources said, “Yes, the investigations will continue, there is a lot of evidence.” And barring some obstruction in some way, they believe they will continue to likely an indictment.
