April 22, 2016: A senator suggests FBI could combat political interference with leaks.

Senator Chuck Grassley (R), chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, says of the FBI’s Clinton investigation: “Is there going to be political interference? If there’s enough evidence to prosecute, will there be political interference? And if there’s political interference, then I assume that somebody in the FBI is going to leak these reports and it’s either going to have an effect politically or it’s going to lead to prosecution if there’s enough evidence.” He adds, “I wouldn’t be encouraging it because if it’s a violation of law, I can’t be encouraging a violation of law. This is kind of my own opinion, this is something I’ve heard.” (The Des Moines Register, 4/22/2016)
