Rev. Al Sharpton takes Hillary Rodham Clinton at her word that she won’t be indicted over her email scandal, but said if she does he would hope that a well-known party unifier would step in to replace her.
He even named names in an interview today: Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn.
At a media roundtable hosted by the Christian Science Monitor, he said he feels confident that Clinton won’t be indicted after her likely nomination in July, citing her firm denial at Wednesday night’s Democratic debate.
I don’t think that will happen, he said of an indictment that would force her to leave the race.
But if she was, he was asked for a fresh candidate who might be able to step in to unite the party and he immediately suggested Biden.
There’s a very fresh face right around the corner in Joe Biden, is that fresh enough for you? he said in the interview held just two blocks from the White House. He added that Biden is fresh enough to me.
