After almost eight years, President Obama is finally being asked tough questions that the media usually back away from.

In an exclusive interview with “Fox News Sunday’s” Chris Wallace, Obama said that there are no politics at play as far as the multi-agency investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email account goes.

Wallace asked if Obama himself could “guarantee” that the Justice Department would not protect Clinton in any way.

“I can guarantee that. Not because I give Attorney General Lynch a directive, but that is institutionally how we have always operated. I do not talk to the Attorney General about pending investigations. I do not talk to FBI directors about pending investigations. We have a strict line and always have maintained it,” Obama insisted, according to FoxNews.com.

Wallace pressed the important issue, to be sure.

“I guarantee that there is no political influence in any investigation conducted by the Justice Department, or the FBI, not just in this case, but in any case,” Obama told Fox News Sunday. “Nobody is above the law. How many times do I have to say it?”

Yet, Obama still doesn’t believe Clinton’s use of a private email server violated national security.

“There’s carelessness in terms of managing emails, that she has owned, and she recognizes,” the president said, according to Fox News.
