Reports were confirmed on Saturday morning that the Federal Bureau of Investigation interviewed Democratic presumptive presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for over three hours at FBI headquarters regarding the unsecured email server that she used and sent classified information over while Secretary of State.
Clinton campaign spokesman Nick Merrill released the following statement regarding the three and a half hour meeting (as read on Fox News):
Secretary Clinton gave a voluntary interview this morning about her email arrangements while she was Secretary. She is pleased to have had the opportunity to assist the Department of Justice in bringing this review to a conclusion. Out of respect for the investigative process, she will not comment further on her interview.
FBI Director James Comey told Fox News’s Catherine Herridge in May that he was not familiar with the term used by the Clinton camp, “security inquiry.” He told Herridge that “We do investigations here at the FBI.”
The interview was anticipated as reports came out that Clinton was scheduled for a meeting. Key witness Cheryl Mills, Clinton’s former Chief of Staff in the State Department, was seen leaving Clinton’s residence this morning around 10 a.m. according to Fox News, which showed video of Mills leaving the home.
