FBI To Interview Hillary Clinton: Media Yawns
The Clinton campaign obviously turned to a friendly news publication, the Los Angeles Times, to leak news of pending interviews by FBI agents of Hillary Clinton and other top aides who worked for her regarding her handling of classified information while serving as Secretary of State. The story is replete with cautions about not reading too much into the interviews because Clinton's nuanced denial of sending or receiving classified information on her private e-mail server is based on the fact it wasn't marked classified at the time it was sent or received. Of course, communications that originate from top government officials are never marked classified at the instant of their creation; rather that's determined after the fact when archiving the documents and determining what, if any, can be released to the public. Because of the nuances of how Clinton and her top staff mishandled classified information, the LA Times assures us there is little, if any chance, she will face any criminal charges. The infighting between Republicans continue to dominate the news coverage of the presidential race as opposed to Clinton's repeated and continued wrongdoing while in public office.
