It has been reported that the Clinton interview, which lasted for several hours, should the last before the FBI hands up it call to the lawyers of the Justice Dept. on the Clinton emails/server case….
The final outcome will probably be sometime in the next few weeks…
The State Dept. Inspector General has also run his separate investigation which concluded that the Sec of State SHOULD have not used the private server, but her actions where not against the law….
There are several civil Freedom of Information suits ongoing seeking access to more Clinton emails that could last well into next year….
The F.B.I. interviewed Hillary Clinton on Saturday morning for its investigation into whether she or her aides broke the law by setting up a private email server for her use as secretary of state, her campaign said.
“Secretary Clinton gave a voluntary interview this morning about her email arrangements while she was secretary,” Nick Merrill, a campaign spokesman, said in a statement. “She is pleased to have had the opportunity to assist the Department of Justice in bringing this review to a conclusion.”
The campaign declined to elaborate on the substance of the interview, which lasted about three and a half hours at F.B.I. Headquarters in Washington. Shortly afterward, two black S.U.V.s were seen returning to Mrs. Clinton’s house in the capital.
The investigation has loomed over Mrs. Clinton’s presidential campaign, as Republicans have seized on the issue to question the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee’s judgment.
On Friday, the campaign of Donald J. Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, blasted out an email titled “The Facts on Clinton’s Secret Server” that included articles about the emails marked classified that had been sent or stored on Mrs. Clinton’s private server.
The central question in the Justice Department effort is whether the actions met the legal standard for the crime of mishandling classified information.
Mrs. Clinton’s sit-down with the F.B.I. came amid controversy over a meeting between her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who ran into each other on Monday at the Phoenix airport while Mr. Clinton was fund-raising for his wife’s presidential campaign.
