WASHINGTON (UPI) — Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said in a rare interview with Fox News that there is “no basis” for a criminal indictment in the ongoing investigation into her use of a private email server while secretary of state.
Clinton was asked by Fox News anchor Bret Baier if there was “zero chance” the email issue, which is being investigated for the potential mishandling of classified information, would be a problem for her campaign.
“Absolutely. That’s what I’m saying. That happens to be the truth,” Clinton said.
Clinton, who rarely appears on the conservative-leaning news network in favor of interviews on CNN and the liberal-leaning MSNBC, said she is awaiting the conclusion of the FBI’s investigation.
She said she is confident the FBI will not indict her.
“That is not going to happen,” Clinton said. “There is no basis for it and I’m looking forward to this being wrapped up as soon as possible.”
Clinton has said she will cooperate with the FBI investigation and has urged her former staff at the State Department to do the same.
