Democratic Presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton addressed questions about the current FBI probe into her private email server. The question asked, has the FBI contacted her to schedule an interview to discuss the issue?
According to Politico:
“No, no they haven’t,” the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” when asked if the FBI had sought to interview her.
“Back in August, we made clear that I’m happy to answer any questions that anybody might have, and I stand by that,” she said.
Clinton also defended her use of a private email server when she was secretary of state, saying she had since made her emails public.
“It’s just a wrong set of assertions and conclusions,” Clinton said about complaints she’s too secretive.
“I have said repeatedly it was not the best choice. It was a mistake,” she said. “But I think that anybody who’s actually looked at this has concluded that I’ve now put out all of my emails.”
Clinton also said her campaign and that of her rival, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, were still discussing scheduling another debate that Sanders has been pushing for before the New York’s Democratic presidential primary.
“We’ve offered dates and we’ve done it over the last several weeks,” Clinton said, adding her campaign had proposed Thursday, April 14, and Sanders Sunday, April 17, two days before the primary.
It’s clear Mrs. Clinton either feels really confident that she won’t be charged for illegally possessing over 1,300 classified emails on her server, or is hiding her concern.
Either way, the coming weeks should be interesting as it appears that the FBI is getting ready to make a recommendation to the Justice Department.
