Clinton: ‘Absolutely’ zero chance FBI investigation will be problem

Hillary Clinton on Wednesday emphasized that the FBI investigation into the private email server she used while secretary of State will not be an issue for her in the presidential election.

“Absolutely. That’s what I’m saying. That happens to be the truth,” Clinton said on Fox News when asked whether she thinks there is “zero chance” that the FBI investigations into her email server and the investigation into the Clinton Foundation could be problematic for her.

{mosads}An appearance on Fox News is rare for Clinton, who typically does interviews with CNN and left-leaning MSNBC.

During the interview, days after Clinton became the Democratic Party’s presumptive presidential nominee, Fox News’s Bret Baier pressed Clinton about the private email server.

Clinton said she is sure she will not be indicted after the FBI investigation, reiterating previous comments she made on the issue.

“That is not going to happen,” she said. “There is no basis for it, and I’m looking forward to this being wrapped up as soon as possible.”

She said she knows the FBI has been interviewing a number of people and has urged cooperation.

“I’m looking forward to also participating,” she said.
