The FBI has released a 58 page report on its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.
The information was given to Congress last month and made public after numerous FOIA requests.
Though 58 pages were released, large portions and sometimes entire pages were redacted.
The FBI statement reads:
Today the FBI is releasing a summary of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s July 2, 2016 interview with the FBI concerning allegations that classified information was improperly stored or transmitted on a personal e-mail server she used during her tenure.
We also are releasing a factual summary of the FBI’s investigation into this matter. We are making these materials available to the public in the interest of transparency and in response to numerous Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.
Appropriate redactions have been made for classified information or other material exempt from disclosure under FOIA. Additional information related to this investigation that the FBI releases in the future will be placed on The Vault, the FBI’s electronic FOIA library.
Fox News reports:
According to the files, some of which were redacted, Clinton told investigators during her interview in early July she could not recall numerous details.
The documents also said the FBI could not obtain 13 Clinton mobile devices that may have been used to send emails from her personal email address.
Further, the documents show Clinton claiming to be unaware of certain fundamental aspects of how classified information is marked.
The bureau released a summary of Clinton’s July 2 interview with the FBI, as well as a summary of the FBI investigation itself.
“We are making these materials available to the public in the interest of transparency and in response to numerous Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests,” the FBI said in a statement. “Appropriate redactions have been made for classified information or other material exempt from disclosure under FOIA. “
The FBI provided portions of the file to members of Congress last month, but faced pressure to make some of the documents public.
FBI Director James Comey announced in July that the bureau would not pursue criminal charges in the case, while calling Clinton’s actions as secretary of state “extremely careless.”
Before the announcement, the FBI interviewed Clinton for several hours.
