Both Fox News and the Wall Street Journal are reporting new information surrounding the FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation, with sources saying the case will likely lead to an indictment.

New details surfaced Thursday, when Fox News host Bret Baier revealed new information from two separate sources with "intimate knowledge" of the case. Additionally, a new Wall Street Journal report says FBI director James Comey's pursuit of the case is based on recordings of a suspect in a separate corruption case who spoke about the Clinton Foundation's dealings.

The Journal reports that despite views from Department of Justice prosecutors who say the recordings as hearsay, the FBI moved forward believing these recorded conversations gave enough evidence to continue the probe.

While Comey has not released a public statement since he alerted Congress via email of new information surrounding the Clinton Foundation case, Fox is reporting inside information on where the FBI investigation currently stands.

According to Fox News' sources, the white collar crime division of the FBI is looking into accusations of pay-for-play interaction between then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Foundation, which had allegedly occurred for over a year. This operation allegedly favored specific donors to the Foundation's charities -- a claim the Clintons have previously denied.

At this point, one source says the FBI is deeming the Clinton Foundation a "very high priority." Interviews have been repeatedly conducted about the case, and the FBI continues to build "a lot" of evidence. Fox reports that the source went even further to say, "there is an avalanche of new information coming every day."

The classified e-mail investigation is reportedly being run by the National Security division of the FBI. The division is currently sorting through the laptop of former Democratic Congressman Anthony Wiener, and have found e-mails believed to be sent from Hillary Clinton's server.
