WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — “I remain a Democrat and proud of the work I did for six years for President Bill Clinton between 1994 and 2000 and I write with extreme sadness,” Schoen wrote in The Hill, a news outlet focused on Congress and US politics. “But I cannot in the waning days of the election make the case that Secretary Clinton should be elected.”
According to Schoen, a win by the Democratic nominee on November 8 could yield a presidency that will be marked by a constitutional crisis as Clinton deepens her entanglement in Federal Bureau of Investigation probes of emails sent and received during her tenure as US secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.
On Friday, FBI Director James Comey notified members of the US Congress that the bureau has found additional emails relevant to its investigation into Clinton’s use, as secretary of state, of a private email server. FBI investigators will ascertain if the newly uncovered emails contain classified information, Comey wrote.
Clinton has been widely criticized over her use of the home-based server and email account for official business as a cabinet secretary, but in July Comey announced that although her conduct had been careless, criminal charges against her were not warranted.
