“I’m not worried about it,” he said, pointing to her release of emails and tax returns.
“She’s always been willing to talk to authorities.”
The Hill reports:
The FBI interviewed Clinton Saturday for three and a half hours as part of the ongoing investigation.
The interview does not signal whether or not the Justice Department will press charges, but Brown said he doesn’t think an indictment is coming.
“I don’t think it will happen,” he said.
Brown also called last week’s meeting between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton “unfortunate.”
“I wish it hadn’t happened. But I think the FBI will do its job… And I think that — I think there won’t be an indictment. And I think that means she did what many secretaries of State have done in the past.”
“I mean, she released more emails and more pages of emails and more records than any of her predecessors of secretary of State, even before she was actually running for president. I think that speaks to her integrity.”
Brown then launched into an attack against Clinton’s likely general election rival, presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, saying “elections are about contrasts.”
“I think what the story is missing is all that we don’t know about Donald Trump. He won’t release his taxes. We don’t have his real healthcare records,” Brown said.
“He hasn’t filled in any of the blanks in what he’s going to do. We see every week or two, we see another story of a small business that went out of business because Donald Trump.”
