Hillary Clinton FBI Interview—Sharon Kyle

According to the report, Hillary Clinton voluntarily agreed to be interviewed but White House correspondent Kelly O'Donnell tweeted "Use of word "voluntarily" in the context of @HillaryClinton FBI interview means there was no subpoena." The three-hour meeting was conducted this morning at the FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C.

This FBI interview comes on the heels of the much talked about meeting between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former president Bill Clinton. The pair met on Lynch’s airplane on the tarmac of Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport on Monday. According to Lynch, neither she nor Clinton had planned the meeting, which happened serendipitously when the two were at the same airport at the same time. Lynch claims that Clinton walked across the tarmac and got onto her plane.

Bill Clinton appointed Lynch to be the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York in 1999. According to Lynch, their social meeting lasted about 30 minutes and all that was discussed was the grandchildren, their travels, and former Attorney General Janet Reno, who served in Clinton’s administration. Since the news of this meeting came out and perhaps because of the shadow it has cast on the email server investigation, Lynch has said she regrets having had the encounter with Clinton. The Attorney General says she now plans to distance herself from the case but she is not recusing herself.

We'd like our readers to weigh in on this. Our survey question for this week has to do with what may possibly be the final step in the FBI's investigation into the potential mishandling of classified information on Hillary Clinton’s private email server when she served as President Obama's Secretary of State. We want you to answer the survey question below but then we'd also like to know if you believe the Bill Clinton/Loretta Lynch meeting was serendipitous or was it in way calculated and by whom. Also, let us know if you believe that Lynch and Clinton only had a social conversation.
