Clinton: No contact from FBI in email server investigation

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton said in an interview broadcast Sunday that she has not been in contact with the FBI over its investigation into the private email server she used while secretary of State.

{mosads}“No one has reached out to me yet, but last summer, I think last August, I made it clear I’m more than ready to talk to anybody, anytime,” she said on CBS’s “Face the Nation. “And I’ve encouraged … all of … my assistants … to be … very forthcoming. And I hope that this is close to being wrapped up.”

“So nobody said, ‘Hillary Clinton, we’d like to sit down and talk to you’ from the FBI?” host John Dickerson asked.

“Not at this point,” Clinton responded.

Many of the former secretary of State’s top aides have been interviewed in the past few weeks, as the FBI investigation appears to have entered its final stages. Clinton herself is expected to answer questions in the coming days or weeks.

Clinton said she would tell voters concerned about the issues what she has said “for many, many months.”

“It’s a security inquiry. I always took classified material seriously. There was never any material marked classified that was sent or received … by me. And I … look forward to this being wrapped up.”

Clinton reiterated that it was a mistake to use the private email server.

“And I will say it again, as often as I need to. It seemed like a convenient … idea at the time, but certainly it wasn’t. … I always take classified material seriously. There’s no argument about that that I’m aware of. And I will continue to do so — and within whatever parameters are required for the president, which I know a little bit about, having served with President Obama.

“I think that if you don’t keep learning you’re going to stagnate and just not move forward,” she said when asked about larger lessons learned. “And I know I’ve got to do my very best to … answer any questions that are raised about me in any context. I’ve been doing that for 25 years, so I do have a lot of experience … with it.”
