“Evan, hold on, can you fact-check?” Baldwin asked reporter Evan Perez on “CNN Newsroom” on Friday. “Evan Perez? Hammers? Fact-check that for me, on the fly.” 

“Yes they did, Brooke.” Perez responded. “As he mentioned, there were 13 mobile devices and 5 iPads that the FBI said that in some way were used with her private email server, and they did in some cases just destroy them with hammers when they were done using them.” 

The FBI on Friday released a detailed report on its investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of State. 

The report included notes on the agency’s three-hour interview with Clinton.
