Fox News anchor Bret Baier admitted on Thursday that he had been wrong when he reported that Hillary Clinton would “likely” be indicted by federal authorities, a claim that sent conservative websites into a frenzy.
“We talked to two separate sources with intimate knowledge of the FBI investigations,” Baier explained on his Wednesday program. “The Clinton Foundation investigation is far more expansive than anybody has reported so far… Several offices separately have been doing their own investigations.”
“They are actively and aggressively pursuing this case,” the anchor insisted. “The investigations will continue, there is a lot of evidence. And barring some obstruction in some way, they believe they will continue to likely an indictment.”
That news immediately exploded on conservative–leaning sites.
But on Thursday, Baier said that his characterization of the news was simply not true.
