FBI interviews loom for Clinton, aides, says report
The FBI is arranging interviews with some of Hillary Clinton s closest aides over her use of a private email server at the State Department, a new report says.
Prosecutors are also expected to seek an interview with the Democratic presidential front-runner herself, though nothing has been scheduled so far, according to The Los Angeles Times.
No dates have been set for questioning Clinton s advisers either, but a federal prosecutor in recent weeks has notified their lawyers that such meetings are pending, according to the Times report.
It cited two people familiar with the probe, adding that the timing for speaking with Clinton remains unclear.
The email controversy has dogged Clinton’s campaign even as she has moved closer to winning the Democratic nomination. The report on the FBI’s push for interviews suggests its probe will continue for weeks, making it more likely the issue will not be resolved before the end of the primary.
Her rival for the Democratic nod, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), has not used the email issue as an attack line. But in a general election, it will surely be used by the Republican nominee.
Clinton has said it was an error in judgment to have the private server, but has argued she did nothing illegal and that no classified material was sent over the server
