FBI Releases Summary of Clinton Investigation
The FBI announced on Friday that they’ve released 1) the summary of their July 2 interview with Hillary Clinton, and 2) a summary of their investigation into her alleged mishandling of classified emails during her time as Secretary of State.
You can read the full statement here:
Today the FBI is releasing a summary of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s July 2, 2016 interview with the FBI concerning allegations that classified information was improperly stored or transmitted on a personal e-mail server she used during her tenure. We also are releasing a factual summary of the FBI’s investigation into this matter. We are making these materials available to the public in the interest of transparency and in response to numerous Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. Appropriate redactions have been made for classified information or other material exempt from disclosure under FOIA. Additional information related to this investigation that the FBI releases in the future will be placed on The Vault, the FBI’s electronic FOIA library.
FBI director James Comey has already declined to recommend criminal charges against Clinton, the Democratic Party’s nominee for president. The case has garnered widespread attention for its obvious political complications.
We’ll examine the documents, and let you know if we find anything noteworthy. Anyone interested can read the investigation summary below. It’s searchable, too, so have at it. See the interview document here.
