The FBI has released files relating to its investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s use of private email while serving as Secretary of State.

The 58 pages of notes included Hillary Clinton’s interview and details about her private server at her New York residence.

In July 2016, the FBI ended a year-long inquiry into whether Hillary Clinton broke the law by using a private server.

James Comey concluded that though Hillary Clinton and her staff had been “extremely careless” with classified information, there was no evidence that she knowingly shared sensitive material.

Hilalry Clinton has claimed that her use of private email was allowed.

According to the FBI files, Hilalry Clinton told the investigators she “did not explicitly request permission to use a private server or email address”, but that members of the State Department were aware of her use of a private address “because it was displayed to anyone with whom she exchanged emails”.

The documents also include information on how the private server was set up in the basement of Hillary Clinton’s home in Chappaqua, New York.


Though the documents, which included summaries of interviews with some Hillary Clinton staffers, offered more insight into the FBI’s investigation, large portions of the files were heavily redacted.

Questions over Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server have dogged her presidential campaign on the trail over the last year.

A spokesman for Donald Trump said the notes “reinforce her tremendously bad judgment and dishonesty”.
