"The White House's admission that the FBI is investigating Hillary Clinton's email server as a "criminal" matter shreds her dishonest claim that it is a routine 'security inquiry.' This is another reminder of her reckless conduct as Obama's secretary of state, where her attempt to skirt government transparency laws exposed highly classified information and put our national security at risk".
Tonight, Fox News Channel anchor Bret Baier interviews presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in her first sit-down on FNC since a town hall with Baier in March.
Clinton was further asked whether she thinks there is "zero chance" the FBI Investigation of her e-mail and the Clinton Foundation investigation are problematic. So we had all this information in the public record.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest said that the FBI investigation into Clinton's email practices would be "conducted independent of any political interference".
Hillary Clinton: No, not at all. VICE News filed the lawsuit against the FBI in an attempt to see what was in Clinton's email server, along with the correspondence between the Bureau and the State department.
She told a radio interviewer last Friday that there was no chance of criminal charges.
Clinton also praised her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders, echoing remarks from her victory speech Tuesday.
And she said she had no memory of signing a statement in 2009, when she took office, acknowledging that "classified" designations applied to government secrets whether or not they were labeled that way.
She also added that "nothing I sent or received was marked classified and nothing has been demonstrated to contradict that, so it is the fact".
"There is no basis for it", she argued, "and I'm looking forward to this being wrapped up as soon as possible".
Clinton herself continues to stonewall the issue, boldly repeating claims that it was allowed and that her predecessors had done the same thing even though last month's report from the State Department's inspector general has debunked them. "I certainly wouldn't do it again".
