Clinton questioned by FBI as part of an email probe

Clinton questioned by FBI as part of email probe

Washington (CNN)Hillary Clinton met with the FBI for three and a half hours 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 Saturday morning and lasted approximately three and a half hours. The FBI declined to comment on the interview.

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. The question now becomes how long it will take for the FBI to conclude its probe.

Sources familiar with the investigation had previously told CNN the Justice Department's aim was to wrap up before the Republican and Democratic conventions later this month. The timing is crucial, because if Clinton were to be indicted before the convention, Democrats could perhaps nominate another candidate.

The news of FBI agents interviewing the former secretary of state could heighten anxiety among Democrats that their nominee might be indicted before November. It also serves as a reminder of Clinton's negatives to voters already skeptical of her trustworthiness.

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.

House Benghazi Committee Republicans on Tuesday released their report on the September 11, 2012, attack where four Americans died, which drew significant media attention but lacked significant new information that changed the dynamic of the race. The panel's biggest discovery was finding the email address and server over a year ago.

Clinton has maintained that no emails marked as classified at the time were sent on the server, and that information in some emails was retroactively classified. And her campaign has actively portrayed the congressional investigation into Benghazi as a partisan exercise, highlighted by last October's 11-hour hearing where Clinton testified.

But the FBI interview, along with news that Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch met at an Arizona airport Monday, shows Clinton can't move past the email issue -- a story that overshadowed the launch of her campaign in early 2015 and helped Bernie Sanders find running room still won't go away.

Pay Us Back! Republicans Have Spent $20.5 Million Of Your Money On Benghazi Probe
By Jason Easley on Sat, Apr 9th, 2016 at 11:57 am
The House Republican investigation into the Benghazi attacks has passed its 700th day and spent $6.5 million in taxpayer money to uncover no new evidence. It is time for Republicans to pay us back every cent that they have wasted.

THE FBI have to investigate, because the Repub's have brought up these allegations in Congress, having been continually being cheered along by their mates in the conservative-controlled US media and varoious gossip and scandal sites...

EVEN WHEN there's nothing to it, creating any rumours and doubts is simply more  'grist for the mill' for the Repub' propagandists in the lead up to the Presidential election..

Sadly, it is the classic politics by diversion.  Conservatives represent special interests, liberals represent the interests of all people.  In order to hide their cheating of the public, they have to put on these side-shows.  It creates the impression that there is villainous activity on both sides, thereby faintly justifying themselves.

But it's part of the pattern of lies...WMD's in Iraq, yellowcake from Nigeria, Obama is a Muslim, death panels in the Affordable Care Act, and Obama was born outside of the US.  Then they follow through with Benghazi or emails, and they chant the biggest lie of all....they all do it!

It is the conservative strategy all over the world.  How to cheat the public right before their eyes, and get away with it!  Ever notice that the Refuseican Congress has done nothing about infrastructure repair, immigration, ISIS, terrorism, guns and mass murders, not to mention poverty, education, the homeless, feeding children and such needs, but they can spend $100's-millions on charades like these.  It's obvious they need to go.

That was a unique circumstance, in which Tony Blair lied to the world.  He was the US lapdog, and would have let anyone scratch his ears.

I can't tell you how much US liberals detested Britain for standing with the Repugnican baby-killers in that war.  Methinks it will be the last US war unless an real military attacks the US mainland like Pearl Harbor..

Defense department indeed. Evil or Very Mad

Why would they?  They are doing an honest job, which is more than you can say about Tories.

If Conservatives are not devineing a lie to cover their tracks, they are totally losing the plot as they did with Brexit.  That's why your Tory PM resigned.  A feal face-slapper for him...

Isn't that broad sprayed-generalizations, POV expressed by Tommykins, exactly like the narrow minded Repug's that are only able to belch out 'talking points' that they hear instead of being able to have clarity of thought? 

That type of mind-set is the reason that there's still 'Birther' BS making the rounds on FB with the date of 2008 on them; but still collecting more ignorant signatures from lesser thinking humanoids to lazy to do any type of 'FACT CHECKING' on their own Suspect

Idea

TOMMY'S the typical Conservative stooge...

Easily led into blaming Labour/Unions/liberal lefties/"communists"/"socialists"/ environmentalists/foreigners for all and any problems that he sees in his little world, whether real or imagined..

And never actually thinking about any of the regurgitated far-right nonsense he constantly spouts on here.

Well, the sad - shocking number of like minded that's crawled out of those under world dwellings ...as the numbers of 'Cheeto-Jesus' supporters have grown; I'm reevaluating my stance on a required litmus test prior to being allowed to vote  Twisted Evil
