"...what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?” “A Republic, if you can keep it

Congress WILL get to see notes from Hillary Clinton's three-hour interview with the FBI over private email server scandal

  • The notes from Hillary Clinton's July 2 interview with the Federal Bureau of Investigation could arrive on Capitol Hill as early as Monday
  • Republicans have been wanting to see notes from Clinton's interview, which wasn't under oath, so no transcript exists 
  • On July 5 the FBI recommended to the Department of Justice that no charges be filed against Clinton over her private email server 
  • Members of Congress will receive notes from Hillary Clinton's interview with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, CNN is reporting

    Clinton spoke to the FBI on July 2, just three days before the bureau's director James Comey announced that he would recommend the former secretary of state not be charged with a crime in the private email server case. 

    Comey did, however, label Clinton's homebrew email setup 'extremely careless.' 

    His July 5 announcement – which led to the Department of Justice officially dropping the case – also resulted in Comey having to testify before Congress, which he did two days later. 

    There, he was asked about Clinton's interview with the FBI.

    Comey divulged that the three-hour interview hadn't taken place under oath and thus no official transcript would be available.

    Notes from the interview, however, existed and Republicans have been trying to get their hands on those for the past month. 

    CNN noted that the Obama Administration has been debating how to release the documents since Clinton is now officially the Democratic nominee for the White House. 

    Republicans have harped on the email scandal for over a year now and it's done some damage to her reputation as she pursues the presidency.

    In a Bloomberg Politics poll that dropped last week, respondents found Clinton's email scandal to be the most worrisome part of her candidacy.

    Fifty-eight percent said they were bothered by Clinton setting up a private email server as secretary of state, a bigger percentage than those who said they were troubled by her handling of the Benghazi terror attack in 2012, in which four Americans were killed. 

    For months Clinton claimed that she never sent or received classified information on the private server, but Comey's congressional testimony countered that.

    'Secretary Clinton said there was nothing marked classified on her emails, either sent or received. Was that true?' asked Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy at the Capitol Hill hearing. 

    'That's not true,' Comey had replied. 

    'Secretary Clinton said, "I did not email any classified maerial to anyone on my email. There is no classified material." Was that true?' Gowdy continued.

    'There was classified material emailed,' Comey answered. 

    Twice now Clinton has gotten herself in political trouble for sticking to her original script.  

    In a Fox News interview with the network's Chris Wallace, Clinton told the 'Fox News Sunday' host that Comey 'said my answers were truthful' when she talked to the FBI.

    'And what I've said is consistent with what I have told the American people,' she added. 

    At another point she told reporters during a brief Q&A that she might have 'short-circuited' when answering questions about the emails. 

    The notes will give new insight on what she actually said to the FBI to explain why she decided to set up a secret server instead of using a government-run email account. 

    The notes could make their way to Capitol Hill as soon as tomorrow.

Me Here...There were now notes taken?  That seems odd to me.  I thought when FBI director Comey stated to Congress that none of this was done.  So has the FBI now created notes to back up the great many Hillary lies?
