My understanding is that process being followed is:
- currently 100 FBI agents are investigating the email issue
- the FBI will file a report to the DOJ (hopefully this is leaked if not public)
- that report may recommend a criminal indictment(s)

Refining the question a bit: if the FBI recommends an indictment should a Special Prosecutor be brought in?








For answering the question well, we have to ask for what regulations guide the appointment of special prosecutors.

While googling I can find http://www.americanbar.org/publications/criminal_justice_section_archive/crimjust_standards_pinvestigate.html#2.16 which does explicitely lists cases where a special prosecutor can be brought forward that are about investigations of judges and defense counsels that defend clients under the jurisdiction of the prosecutorís office.

I don't think being an influentlial politician fits into either of those classes. Both of them also are not about ideological conflicts of interests.

Do you think there a policy document for the DOJ that specifies that special prosecutors should be appointed in cases like this?
