FBI grills Hillary Clinton for 3 hours in connection with email server controversy

Speed News Desk | Updated on: 3 July 2016, 15:28 IST

Presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was interviewed by the FBI on 2 July at the agency's Washington headquarters.

During the three-hour-long interview, which the Clinton camp has dubbed "voluntary," she was questioned about her use of a private email server while she served as the secretary of state in the Obama-led administration

According to media reports, Clinton's campaign released the following press statement:

"Secretary Clinton gave a voluntary interview this morning about her email arrangements while she was Secretary. She is pleased to have had the opportunity to assist the Department of Justice in bringing this review to a conclusion. Out of respect for the investigative process, she will not comment further on her interview."

Meanwhile, Donald Trump took to Twitter to slam Clinton and said claimed that the system was "rigged".

The incident came into the light in March 2015 when it was revealed that thousands of official emails were sent or stored in Clinton's private email server. Of these emails, some were marked as "secret" while some were reportedly marked, "top secret."

However, Hillary Clinton claimed that she was innocent and had called the incident unintentional.
