FBI officials have confirmed that they will interview Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email server before the California primary.
According to CNN, the FBI interviewed top Clinton aide Huma Abedin over the server, along with other senior aids.
Bryan Pagliano, who originally built Clinton’s private server, has agreed to provide testimony to the Department of Justice in exchange for legal immunity.
FBI officials stated they had yet to procure sufficient evidence that any laws were willfully broken, though the investigation is still ongoing.
As of May 5, the investigation is still limited to Clinton’s handling of classified information on her private email server, and the security of the server itself. While the former Secretary of State has cooperated with federal authorities in making thousands of emails public, 22 of the emails in her private server were classified as “top secret” and deemed too sensitive to national security to release to the general public.
The announcement of the upcoming interview comes just a day after NBC published its interview of Romanian hacker Marcel Lehel Lazar, who goes by the moniker “Guccifer.” He claimed that he not only successfully hacked into the former Secretary of State’s server, but that as many as ten other hackers had penetrated its security as well.
Sources with the FBI, however, deny that any breach took place.
According to CNN, the FBI is expected to complete its year-long investigation within the next several weeks. The Department of Justice will then decide whether or not to issue indictments against Clinton or her senior staffers. Should the investigation result in any criminal charges for Clinton staffers before the Democratic National Convention in July, it could throw Clinton’s perceived inevitability of securing the Democratic presidential nomination into question.
