Hillary Clinton Interviewed For 3.5 Hours At FBI Headquarters Over Private Email Server
The presumptive Democratic nominee for president voluntarily met with FBI investigators to discuss the biggest controversy dogging her campaign.
As the investigation into the biggest controversy to dog Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign nears its end, the presumptive Democratic nominee voluntarily met with FBI officials in a lenghty Saturday morning meeting.
Clinton was interviewed for 3.5 hours at the FBI headquarters in Washington, according to her campaign.
"She is pleased to have had the opportunity to assist the Department of Justice in bringing this review to a conclusion," Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill told the AP. "Out of respect for the investigative process, she will not comment further on her interview."
The email controversy has lingered throughout the entirety of Clinton's campaign and stems from her use of a private email server she used for the entirety of her tenure as Secretary of State.
Clinton has called her use of a private server a mistake while arguing that preview Secretaries of State had used them before her.
The meeting comes days after the candidate's husband and former president Bill Clinton shocked many critics with his decision to sit for a chat with Attorney General Loretta Lynch aboard her plane in Phoenix.
While Lynch has insisted her conversation with Mr. Clinton was "social" in nature, critics have called the impromptu sit-down inapproriate at best. Lynch heads the U.S. Department of Justice, which includes the FBI.
Lynch has subsequently promised to accept the findings and recommendations of career prosecutors who have spent months investigating the Clinton email case.
Meanwhile, Clinton's rival, Donald Trump, said Mr. Clinton "opened up a Pandora's Box," by meeting with Lynch.
"And it shows what's going on. And it shows what's happening with our laws and with our government," the presumptive Republican nominee said.
