The FBI paid a visit to long-time Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin in the ongoing federal email investigation.
Abedin, who served as Deputy Chief of Staff at the State Department under then-Secretary of State Clinton, was interviewed by the FBI, according to an anonymous source, Fox News reported Thursday.
The investigation by the FBI and the Justice Department has focused on whether Clinton mishandled sensitive and classified information in using her private email server while she was secretary of state. As one of Clinton’s inner circle, Abedin would have been exposed to her boss’s communications.
The interview of Abedin and other aides who were closest to Clinton may indicate the probe is nearing an end, though it is not clear if the Democratic candidate will personally face investigators, according to Fox.
“From the start, Hillary Clinton has offered to answer any questions that would help the Justice Department complete its review and we hope and expect that anyone else who is asked would do the same,” Brian Fallon, Clinton campaign spokesman, said in a statement. “We are confident the review will conclude that nothing inappropriate took place.”
Spokespersons for the Justice Department and the FBI have declined to comment while a a federal judge in Washington on Wednesday said he may order Clinton to testify under oath, Fox reported.
Clinton has maintained that what she did was not a violation of the law as it was allowable by the State Department. She admitted using the private server was a mistake but dismissed the possibility that she could face charges for her actions.
Whatever the Democratic front-runner may choose to believe, the email scandal facing her is not something she has been able to easily shake off.
