- Loretta Lynch Will Follow FBI Recommendations
Hillary Clinton was interviewed by authorities Saturday about the ongoing investigation into her email server, her campaign said.
“Secretary Clinton gave a voluntary interview this morning about her email arrangements while she was Secretary,” Clinton campaign 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.”
A campaign aide said the meeting took place at FBI headquarters in Washington and lasted about three and a half hours.
The interview comes after Attorney General Loretta Lynch met privately with Clinton’s husband, former president Bill Clinton, for 30 minutes earlier this week aboard the Lynch’s private plane. Critics pounced on that meeting, but Lynch insisted that the meeting was brief and focused on personal topics.
Nonetheless, she announced Friday that she would rely on the recommendations of FBI investigators and career prosecutors in determining whether to press charges over the private server.
