As Hillary Clinton approaches the end of primary season, her biggest challenge yet could be approaching: has learned that the FBI is nearing the end of their investigation into her email scandal.

The results of the investigation are expected to be announced prior to the election in November, but so far the forecast isn't looking good.

Rolling Stone reported that many political insiders are speculating that Clinton could even face a potential indictment prior to the Democratic convention in July. Cenk Uygur, the co-founder and host of online news program The Young Turks said, "If you've got a dozen people investigating you, odds are they will indict you" and that only the "grossly ignorant" would rule out the possibility of a Clinton indictment.

Clinton and her team have seemed to disagree, emphasizing that the scrutiny she faces is little more than a "security review" or "security inquiry." She also has announced that she is not "worried about it and no Democrat or American should be either."

But FBI Director James Comey spoke out to contradict Clinton's interpretation, and stress the seriousness of the probe.

"I don't know what that means," Comey said on Wednesday. "We're conducting an investigation. That's the bureau's business. That's what we do."

When asked about Clinton's use of the term "security inquiry," Comey emphasized again that it was an investigation, and that he was "not familiar with the term 'security inquiry.'"

The FBI director went on to say that he understands the public interest in the probe and that he feels pressure to do it "well and promptly."

Clinton denies any wrongdoing, saying that she never mishandled classified information on her private server.
