Video: FBI Notes on Clinton

CNN’s Jake Tapper takes a look this week at the FBI’s summary of its investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email system for government business. As we wrote, the FBI contradicted some past statements made by Clinton and her campaign:

  • The Clinton campaign previously had indicated that her personal emails were deleted before Clinton received a congressional subpoena on March 4, 2015. But the FBI said her emails were deleted “between March 25-31, 2015″ — three weeks after the subpoena. The campaign now says it only learned when the emails were deleted from the FBI report.
  • Clinton repeatedly had said “everybody in the government with whom I emailed knew that I was using a personal email.” But the FBI said “e-mails from Clinton … did not display her e-mail address,” and only 13 people directly emailed her.
