BREAKING – Hillary Clinton met Saturday morning with the FBI regarding the agency’s investigation into her use of a private email server for official correspondence while secretary of state.
The voluntary meeting lasted about three-and-a-half hours and was conducted at the FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C, according to the Clinton campaign.
Clinton “is pleased to have had the opportunity to assist the Department of Justice in bringing this review to a conclusion” campaign spokesman Nick Merrill said in a statement. He also said Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, will not make further comment about the interview.
Clinton’s use of the private server and email address -- particularly whether the setup was used for classified information and how secure they were -- has cast a shadow over her campaign from the start.
The FBI investigation is purportedly coming to a close, and the Clinton interview is considered among the final steps in the case.
Earlier this week, the entire, ongoing email scandal grew when Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton, initiated an impromptu meeting with Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who decides whether to bring charges in the case.
