Clinton ‘Not At All Worried’ About FBI Probe
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton continued to brush off concerns that she could face legal trouble for her use of a private email server while Secretary of State.
Clinton told Chuck Todd on Meet the Press that she is not at all concerned about the probe. “Because I don’t think anything inappropriate was done. And so I have to let them decide how to resolve their security inquiry, but I’m not at all worried about it,” she said.
“But, you know, back in August, we made clear that I’m happy to answer any questions that anybody might have. And I stand by that,” she continued.
The Hill reports:
The Los Angeles Times reported last week that the FBI and prosecutors have begun the process of setting up formal interviews of longtime Clinton aides in an effort to help investigators better understand whether classified material was knowingly or negligently discussed over the nonsecure email system.
Clinton on Sunday also dismissed a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel editorial from last week that said her “horrible track record on transparency raises serious questions for open government under a Clinton administration.”
The newspaper’s editors said the issue may disqualify her from public office.
“Well, it’s just a wrong set of assertions and conclusions,” Clinton said on NBC. “And as you may know, I’ve received the vast majority of newspaper endorsements. They all have the same information. They have all analyzed it. A lot of them have conducted interviews.”
Clinton reiterated that she “sent emails to government employees on their government accounts.”
“I had every reason to believe they were in the government system. It was a matter of convenience,” she added.
“I’ve said repeatedly: It was not the best choice. It was a mistake. But I think that anybody who’s actually looked at this has concluded that I have now put out all of my emails. Go and ask others for their emails. Ask everybody else who’s in public office. I’m the one who’s done it, and I did it because I thought it was the right thing to do.”
