Hillary Clinton will be indicted over conducting government business on her private email account while serving as secretary of state, actress Susan Sarandon predicted.
According to the Washington Examiner, Sarandon was making her comments while doing an interview on MSNBC. She was in the middle of discussing whether or not superdelegates, with whom Clinton has an enormous lead, might flip to Vermont senator Bernie Sanders, whom she supports.
"Nobody's even talking about this indictment. What happens with that?" Sarandon told MSNBC's Chris Jansing. "Besides the trust issue of catching her in so many lies..."
Jansing then cut her off, saying "there has been no indictment."
"No, but there's going to be. There's going to be. I mean, it's inevitable," Sarandon said of Clinton. "[W]e don't know that he's not going to get the numbers either."

Sarandon: America Better Off With Donald Trump Than Hillary Clinton?Sarandon has been hostile to Hillary Clinton this election cycle. In March, she suggested in an interview that if left between Trump and Clinton as the two major party nominees, America may be better off with Trump.
In a conversation captured by the Daily Beast, Sarandon complained to MSNBC's Chris Hayes that Clinton "doesn't even want to fight for a $15 minimum wage."
When asked if she believed Sanders would encourage his voters to support Hillary Clinton in November if she got the Democratic nomination, she said, "I think Bernie would probably encourage people, because he doesn't have any ego in this thing. But I think a lot of people are, 'Sorry, I just can't bring myself to [vote for Clinton].' "
When Hayes asked if she would vote for Clinton, Sarandon replied, "I don't know. I'm going to see what happens."
"Really?" Hayes asked incredulously.
"Really," Sarandon said, "some people feel that Donald Trump will bring the revolution immediately if he gets in, things will really explode."
Hayes asked if she thought this was "dangerous."
"It's dangerous to think that we can continue the way we are with the militarized police force, with privatized prisons, with the death penalty, with the low minimum wage, threats to women's rights and think you can't do something huge to turn that around," she responded.
Susan Sarandon: Stop 'Shaming' Women To Vote For Hillary ClintonIn April, Sarandon accused Clinton's supporters of "shaming" women into voting for her when she appeared on The View.
According to the Daily Beast, View co-host Raven-Symoné told Sarandon, "I think that's very interesting, you not feeling pressure to support Hillary. I feel like some women might feel pressure."
"There certainly was pressure," Sarandon responded. "There's been so many statements and shaming."
"And don't get me wrong, the idea of a woman president I know will happen and I hope someday it can be the daughter of someone who's not rich, who's not married to someone who was a president, that that can happen in this country," Sarandon said to cheers from the mostly female studio audience.
Sarandon said she believed that there are many women who support Sanders, but aren't vocal about it, "Because if you're a woman, everybody dumps on you like, 'How can you be a feminist' " and vote for Sanders over Hillary Clinton.
