The investigation has cast a shadow over her campaign, and 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 has put the Justice Department in the position of having a major say in how the 2016 vote turns out and serves as a reminder of Clinton’s negatives to voters already skeptical of her trustworthiness.
“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. 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.
