That’s it? Someone on Breitbart brought up an eyebrow raising point. If the FBI were warning off “photos, pics, and cellphones” on the tarmac in Phoenix, weren’t they running interference for the Clinton/Lynch meeting? Judge Jeanine Pirro is absolutely correct: no indictment.
WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton met with the FBI on Saturday as part of the investigation into her use of a private email server while leading the State Department, her campaign said.
“Secretary Clinton gave a voluntary interview this morning about her email arrangements while she was secretary,” Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill 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. Out of respect for the investigative process, she will not comment further on her interview.”
An aide said the interview occurred at FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C., Saturday morning and lasted approximately three and a half hours.
The news of FBI agents interviewing the former secretary of state will heighten anxiety among Democrats that their nominee could be indicted before November and serve as a reminder of Clinton’s negatives to voters already skeptical of her trustworthiness.
The meeting means the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server for official business as secretary of state is coming to an end. It’s an investigation that has cast a shadow over her campaign and also has put the Justice Department in the position of having a major say in how the 2016 vote turns out.
The interview comes at the end of a week that could have been another win for Clinton as Trump continues to struggle, but instead demonstrated her — and her husband’s — inability to avoid unforced errors and leave past controversies behind. More
