New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D.) reminded people on Thursday that Hillary Clinton has "gone through more investigations than I can count," adding she would be the next president.
De Blasio, who ran Clinton's successful 2000 U.S. Senate campaign, spoke about the topic of political probes while being pressed on comments he'd made about them being inevitable in public life.

"The next president of the United States has gone through more investigations than I can count," he said. "I had the honor of working for her once upon a time, and I would remind you. Go to the end of the road on all those investigations. You will find positively nothing, and she's about to be the next president of the United States."
De Blasio's political nonprofit, the Campaign for One New York, is under investigation for whether it illegally lobbied the city in 2015. The New York Times reported Wednesday that the state ethics panel doing the probe served a subpoena on City Hall seeking "communications among the mayor, his aides, the nonprofit, its donors and consulting firms that worked for it."
