An FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton's conduct could go past the election. 

“What's happening in the investigation is, I think, the FBI is running into a problem that is too much to investigate,”  Darrell Issa, Former House Oversight Committee chairman told Fox News, the Washington Examiner reported.

“I believe they are going to have to make a summary finding as to her violation of the national records act, her taking of the documents, and of course a classified portion.

... coordinating her activities and President Clinton's activities and Chelsea's activities in the Clinton Foundation, they're probably going to have to leave that until after the election.”

The FBI investigation stems from revelations that Clinton mishandled classified information for almost a year while serving as secretary of state. The investigation expanded to examine whether or not her operations at the State Department improperly coordinated with the Clinton Foundation.

“The foundation business is [a] complex … series of events in which foreign governments have given large amounts of money simultaneously or nearly simultaneously,” Issa said, according to the Washington Examiner. 

“It's complex, it's the kind of thing that can take the FBI a long time."

Issa previously spoke of the FBI’s recommendation of an indictment for the former first lady.

“The Director is somebody who cares a great deal about national security and with the body of evidence, he really has no choice but to refer this for indictment,” he said, Town Hall reported.

“We have communications back and forth to the President from Hillary Clinton's private email, we have 1300 sensitive documents, 22 classified at the highest level, this is well past anyone claiming that they didn't know.

In this case she made a choice. She made a choice to have a private server, she made a choice to use it with highly sensitive material, she made a choice to receive and re-transmit documents that should have been classified and have later been classified. These choices are what the prosecution will really be about."
