FBI director confirming inquiry into Clinton email setup
By ERIC TUCKER
WASHINGTON (AP) – FBI Director James Comeyis confirming that the FBI is looking into the security of the setup of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s email.
But he’s not answering questions about the investigation.
Comey held a wide-ranging conversation with reporters on Thursday, and it was during that session that the director – for the first time – acknowledged the existence of the FBI inquiry.
Comey isn’t going into detail, and he’s not answering questions about when the inquiry might end or exactly what steps the FBI is taking as part of its review.
The FBI has taken possession of the private email server that Clinton used as secretary of state.
Comey says he’s confident “we have the resources and personnel assigned to this matter” and he’s getting regular updates.
