Does Obama endorsement undercut Clinton FBI probe?

I'd have to say yes. Obama said he has given no directive to the DOJ or FBI, but when he comments publicly that there is no case against Hillary, his words have the authority of a directive. The signal is clear to Loretta Lynch. TD

Politico  "President Barack Obama has guaranteed that the FBI's investigation into his former secretary of state’s private email server will be carried out without political influence, but his endorsement of Hillary Clinton Thursday resurrected the issue — for some, at least.

"Fox News' Chief Washington Correspondent James Rosen brought up the probe during Thursday’s White House press briefing, asking Press Secretary Joshua Earnest if Obama’s endorsement would trickle down and affect the Department of Justice employees involved in the investigation.
“You have other employees of the executive branch, career prosecutors, FBI agents, working this case who have now just heard how the president wants to see this case resolved, in essence. Isn't there some conflict there?” Rosen asked Earnest.
“ 'James, there's not,” Earnest replied. “The reason that the president feels confident that he can go out and make this endorsement and record a video in which he describes his strong support for Secretary Clinton's campaign is that he knows the people who are conducting the investigation aren't going to be swayed by any sort of political interference. They aren't going to be swayed by political forces.' ” . . .

Obama 'Cannot Wait to Get Out There and Campaign for Hillary'
. . . 'Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said Obama's endorsement "makes clear what Hillary Clinton has telegraphed this entire campaign – she is running to give President Obama’s failed polices a third term' " . . .
