Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice could face charges now that FBI Director James Comey has been ousted by President Trump.
Only Comey stood in the way of federal indictments against Clinton and Rice.
Brian Weidner, a former FBI agent, told FOX News the door is open for the feds to bring charges against Clinton and Susan Rice, former President Obama's National Security Advisor.
"I would be surprised if they did not review all the investigations regarding [Clinton] and come up with [a] conclusion regarding prosecution," Weidner wrote in an email to Fox News. "The statute of limitations hasn't come into play yet," he added.
Comey drew widespread criticism from Republicans when he refused to bring charges against Clinton for operating an illegal email server in her home. Comey was appointed by Obama as director of the FBI. He served 3 years in that position until he was fired by Trump this week.
The FBI source said Clinton and her attorneys deliberately "slowed down" the FBI's investigation into her illegal activities.
"Only when we threatened with the search warrants, something would be given up," he wrote.
The source added, "It was so much harder than it should have been."
In an exclusive interview with NBC's Lester Holt, President Trump said he always planned to fire Comey, whom he referred to as a "showboat" and an attention seeker.
"I was going to fire Comey -- my decision," Trump told Holt.
Referring to accusations that he fired Comey to halt the probe into his supposed ties to the Russians, the president said he wasn't thinking of "the Russia thing" when he made his decision.
