The FBI will interrogate Hillary Clinton about her emails soon


Officials told CNN (via RT.com) that the Federal Bureau of Investigation will meet with Hillary Clinton sometime before the California primary, which takes place June 7.

USA officials who have been briefed on the investigation say that the FBI has found no evidence that Hillary Clinton broke the law with her private email server.

The Clinton campaign said on Thursday that they've been cooperative with the Justice Department review from the beginning.

The FBI investigation has caused Clinton considerable political pain as Republican rivals insist her use of a private email server should lead to her indictment.

The probe remains focused on the security of the server and the handling of classified information and hasn't expanded to other matters, the officials said.

On Wednesday, in an unrelated civil case, a federal judge in Washington said he may order Clinton to testify under oath about whether she used a private email server to evade public records disclosures.

The FBI has since launched a criminal investigation amid Republican charges that use of the unsecured system endangered national security.

Huma Abedin, who served as Mrs Clinton's deputy chief of staff during Mrs Clinton's tenure as the United States top diplomat between 2009 and 2013, was questioned in April, according to the official.

Earlier this week, U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan paved the way for the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch to depose Clinton aides Abedin, Cheryl Mills, and Bryan Pagliano over the next two months.

Clinton, who's running for the Democratic presidential nomination, says she is cooperating with the probe.

It is not known how much longer the investigation will take.

There's a sense within the Sanders campaign that Clinton could become a less-than-desirable nominee because of her email drama as the convention approaches. He has always denied that any classified information was at risk of being hacked.

However, the hacker provided no proof of his claim to have hacked Clinton's server. Sullivan also ordered that it may be necessary for Clinton herself to sit for a deposition with Judicial Watch attorneys. But, you know, back in August, we made clear that I'm happy to answer any questions that anybody might have.
