The notes taken during the more than three hours Hillary Clinton spoke with the FBI over her private email server will soon be in the hands of lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
Members of Congress will receive notes from the “interview” as early as Monday, CNN reported.
Inexplicably, the bureau does not have a complete transcript of the interview, as FBI Director James Comey has already told Congress. He also informed lawmakers that Clinton was not under oath at the time — it’s not like there’s anything important being discussed.
Several Republican members requested the notes after Comey testified before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in July.
According to Politico:
Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) sent Comey a letter the same day requesting the entire “investigative file” on the Clinton email issue. Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) also asked Comey for all 302 reports related to the case, requesting that they be turned over by the end of last month.
“I’ll commit to giving you everything I can possibly give you under the law and to doing it as quickly as possible,” Comey said at the time.
Politico noted that the Obama administration was “urgently debating how to respond to congressional demands for the official report” out of concerns about “giving lawmakers access to politically sensitive records” — see Republicans.
Congress is currently on a seven-week recess, so it’s not clear how soon to expect a response to the CNN report.
