Hillary Clinton met with the FBI for three and a half hours Saturday as part of the investigation into her use of a private email server while heading the State Department. This interview heightened anxiety among Democrats that their nominee for president could wind up facing an indictment before the November election to the White House. FBI sources said they hoped to end their investigation before the Democratic convention in mid July.
Clinton herself declined to comment on her questioning by the FBI.
The FBI interview, along with the disclosure of Bill Clinton’s initiative to see Attorney General Loretta Lynch at an Arizona airport Monday – a meeting of an hour and a half which some criticized as “improper” – shows that Clinton’s campaign is dogged by the private email probe. "I certainly wouldn't do it again because I think it has cast this shadow over what it should not, over what it will not touch," Lynch said later.
