FBI Gives Senate Interview Summaries from Clinton Private Email Server Investigation

Aug 16, 2016

Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, twice wrote to the FBI director over the agency’s investigation of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.  Today the Senate received the FBI’s interview summaries from the investigation.  Grassley made the following comment on the materials received today.   
“The FBI sent interview summaries and supporting materials.  On initial review, it seems that much of the material given to the Senate today, other than copies of the large number of emails on Secretary Clinton’s server containing classified information, is marked ‘unclassified/for official use.’  The FBI should make as much of the material available as possible.  The public’s business ought to be public, with few exceptions.  The people’s interest would be served in seeing the documents that are unclassified.  The FBI has made public statements in describing its handling of the case, so sharing documents in support of those statements wherever appropriate would make sense.  Right now, the public is at a disadvantage and has only part of the story.”
