the probe will look intoook in whether fbi director james jam comey properly followedwe department policies.mentolic if you'll recall com mee and c his team were investigatinges whether hillary clinton miss m handled classified informationna by using that private e-mail server. >> simone path joins us.pathoins is this something we've seeninge in the past simone where youre have a major action taken and then you have the t investigation at the end of an n administration. >> this is pretty unusual. we don't ks noisw what the effet oi going to be. there's the possibility of criminal charges here againstgan fbi director comey but we'reute' really talking here about abo guidelines whether he violateioa the some sort of protocol protoo about discussing criminalt disc investigation about abo publicizing them and about a maybe straining a little bitrain more into the political as a you'll recall the latesteatest allegations came out 11 daysonst before the election after 1lectt early voting had alreadylready started, some that irked the clinton campaign to the extreme. >> simone, when this information came out and thenhe spring forward to right afterhtt the election hillary clinton clt
this particular information by a james comey that shifted theftee election into donald trump'srump favor. so, despite whatever the outcome of thides ispnvestigatia is, it's still not going tong change the outcome of the election so what's the point? p i mean, could we see comey, i cy don't know, fired or what dor w you think? >> we certainly could. it's up to president-electp to donald trump whether he wants to keep him on orrump n wot.r nt as you said of course, youe,ou know, the election is a done a n deal. deal there is no concrete evidencetec and there never really will beyl whether this was the deciding factor. you can certainly argue thatce there are many morertai issues s play during the 2016 election, additional oversights by the clinton campaign preparing for 2016 political train that theyhe weren't expecting so whetherhe this is some sort off silverbullet that is going to t put their qualms to rest iuaes think is sort of a lost causeosc you. >> talk about the future ofk ab director comey,ou you saw theaw trump campaign going back and bk forth. they didn't like comey
