Former New York Times Magazine editor-in-chief Ed Klein says for the first time, Hillary Clinton’s closest advisors have been contacted by the FBI regarding the investigation into the Democratic presidential front runner’s ongoing email scandal.

Appearing on Newsmax Tuesday night, Klein says Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills and Jake Sullivan have all been contacted — the “inner, inner circle of Hillary” — and told them “they are going to be interviewed by the FBI about these emails.”

According to Klein, “each one of them has lawyered up and has decided to distance themselves from Hillary’s campaign so that their problems will not spill over into her campaign.”

Huma Abedin is Clinton’s deputy campaign manager and Hillary is rarely seen without the advisor close by.

“This may be one of the biggest stories about the emails so far,” Klein told “Newsmax Prime” host JD Hayworth.

“Are any of them willing to take on criminal blame to try and keep Hillary and political consequences at a distance?” Hayworth asked.

“Hard to say,” Klein responded.

At Newsmax, Klein says after a six month investigation by more than 100 investigators, the FBI has settled on the trio for further scrutiny.

“It may not be long before the FBI asks Hillary to testify under oath,” according to Klein.

    Under oath? You don’t think that matters to to the one of the biggest criminals in the country do you?

    • Marty65

      Her husband, when President was guilty of lying under oath. Had to surrender his law license. So look where they are now. She is running for President and they are worth tens of millions of dollars. You think she is going anywhere? You think she cares about testifying under oath? She takes testifying about Benghazi as a badge of honor and brags about it. ( Remember how hard she worked to look bored and annoyed at the hearing). They know how to obstruct, obfuscate, stonewall, lie and delay, and they will do all of the above – anything to get the patron saint of her party to the presidency.

          Hillary’s Clintoris on Goldman Sachs, while wagging her finger menacingly at the camera–“I DID NOT have financial relations with that company1”

    The staff lawyered up, which is smart. Will they take a bullet for Hillary? Possibly. Will she for them? No way. She’ll throw anyone under the bus to avoid prosecution or jail.

    What a joke, “under oath” not with this bunch of lib progressives a-holes!

  • JosieGirl2929 .

    Goodness! How much more “investigating” and “interviewing” must there be to settle on the fact that this woman is guilty of putting the American people in Danger? Just as she put Ambassador Stevens (and other Americans) in danger?

    Investigate all you wish, but remove her from running for office. We do not need a woman of seriously questionable behavior (in reality, guilty as can be) . . .

    As President.

    Hillary Clinton Should Not Be Running for ANY Public Office!

    Certainly NOT for President of OUR U.S.A.!

    Huma Abedin, Jake Sullivan & Cheryl Mills. One (or more) of the three removed the classified markings / headers from Top Secret and SAP documents. I’ll guarantee that the FBI knows exactly which one(s) did it, because of Login & passwords which are stored ad infinitum. That is good for a minimum of 10 years in a Federal prison, possibly even longer. A lot longer.

    The FBI knows how to turn someone in a predicament like this into a “stool pigeon” who will rat on the others in exchange for legal immunity from prosecution. The FBI are “pro’s” at this. They won’t show their entire hand to the lawyers representing the 3 subjects of interest … but they can show them just enough “hard evidence” that it will leave no doubt that a Federal prison cell is looming right around the corner … then, the FBI dangles “a carrot”, offering legal immunity from any prosecution to the first one (of the three) to step up to the plate to be the whistle-blower. They’ll make a point of saying that they will only offer this immunity to one of the three … the first to ask for it, gets it.

    Faced with THAT scenario … do you think that Huma or Jake or Cheryl will jump at the opportunity ? Human nature being what it is, I would bet money, a lot of money, that one of the three will crack and volunteer to be a whistle-blower for the FBI, rather than rot in a jail cell for Hillary … who may well land in one in any event even if none of the three step up to the plate to help the FBI.

    I wonder how Hillary is sleeping, lately ? Of course, she likely heard about the FBI approaching Huma, Jake & Cheryl within minutes after they left their respective homes.

    They’re building the case against her.

  • donnie

    keep dreaming our government is so corrupt that they are immune to prosecution.

    Huma abadeen mother is a leader of the Muslim brotherhood.

    This is what the left have in their inner circle

  • Capt_Morgan

    Hillary and the State dept are culpable. Staye never asked her to set up a .gov account. So they can’t claim ignorance to her private server. And hillary signed the statement saying she gave up all government correspondence. They are both guilty!

    Oaths mean nothing to these people.
