FBI Director James Comey says that Hillary Clinton’s description of the agency’s investigation into her email scandal is not true.
According to The Hill:
“The head of the FBI on Wednesday appeared to challenge Hillary Clinton’s characterization of the federal investigation into her private email server.
Clinton and her allies have repeatedly called the probe a routine “security inquiry.” But Director James Comey told reporters that wasn’t an accurate description.
“It’s in our name. I’m not familiar with the term ‘security inquiry,’ ” Comey said at a roundtable with reporters, according to Politico. “We’re conducting an investigation … That’s what we do,” he said, according to Fox News.
Comey reportedly declined to say whether or not the investigation is “criminal” in nature.
The months-long federal probe appears to be entering its final stages, following reports in recent days that a number of Clinton allies have been interviewed. Clinton herself is expected to answer questions from FBI investigators and federal prosecutors in coming days or weeks.”
