Sources familiar with the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server told NBC News some of her top aides during her time as Secretary of State have been interviewed by the FBI “within the past few months.”
Among them was Huma Abedin, who will be deposed in a separate Freedom of Information case against the State Department.
Officials say the interviews were planned ahead of time and officials say the investigation is far from over.
So far, no conclusions have been reached about whether any laws were violated in setting up or using the system, officials say.
The Clinton campaign continues to say the Democratic front-runner “has offered to answer any questions that would help the Justice Department complete its review,” and that the campaign is “confident the review will conclude that nothing inappropriate took place.”
