How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Does Obama’s Endorsement of Hillary Clinton Undermine FBI Probe?

President Obama’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton for president undermines the FBI investigation into the former secretary of state’s use of a private email server, Republicans claim.

Fox News’ Chief Washington Correspondent James Rosen asked the president’s press secretary, Joshua Earnest, whether there was a conflict of interest, Politico reports.

“You have other employees of the executive branch, career prosecutors, FBI agents, working this case who have now just heard how the president wants to see this case resolved, in essence. Isn’t there some conflict there?” Rosen asked Earnest.

“James, there’s not,” Earnest replied. “The reason that the president feels confident that he can go out and make this endorsement and record a video in which he describes his strong support for Secretary Clinton’s campaign is that he knows the people who are conducting the investigation aren’t going to be swayed by any sort of political interference. They aren’t going to be swayed by political forces.”

Earnest continued: “This is the reason that we actually ask career federal prosecutors to take the lead on these kinds of matters,” Earnest continued, responding to a follow-up question from Rosen. “They don’t have political jobs. They have career jobs as law enforcement officers and as prosecutors and investigators. That’s what their responsibility is.”
