Chuck Todd: ‘It Bothers Me as an American Citizen’ That FBI Didn’t Record Clinton Interview
Chuck Todd said on Saturday that he is bothered by the fact that the Hillary Clinton FBI interview wasn’t recorded.
The Hill reports:
The FBI only took written notes of the July 2 interview with the former secretary of State, and did not record it or create a transcript.
“It bothers me as an American citizen,” the usually-reserved Todd demonstratively declared Friday to a panel of guests on MSNBC’s “Meet the Press Daily.”
“It’s insane. We’re relying on notes on this!” he continued.
“The Trump campaign wants to show [Clinton] lied to the FBI. Maybe she did, maybe she didn’t. We have no proof. And never will.”
According to notes released Friday just before the holiday weekend, Clinton used up to 13 mobile devices while secretary of State, all of which cannot be found or were destroyed.
Clinton also repeatedly told the FBI she couldn’t recall key details and events related to classified information procedures.
FBI Director James Comey announced on July 5 the Bureau would not recommend indicting Clinton, but called her “extremely careless” in the handling of her State Department emails.
