On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Wolf,” Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) stated that the FBI’s “serious investigation” found “serious problems” with presumptive Democratic presidential nominee former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information.
Sanders said that the FBI “seems to have done a pretty thorough investigation.”
When asked if he thought the FBI came to a “fair conclusion,” Sanders answered, “I don’t know the answer to that. I mean, it seemed to be a reasonable — he’s a serious guy, and I think it was a serious investigation.”
Later, he was asked, “So the question is, do you have confidence in the way Hillary Clinton handled classified information during her four years as secretary of state?”
Sanders responded, “I think what the FBI report said is, there was serious problems. And you know, that’s what the case is.”
After criticizing Republicans for politicizing the issue, Sanders conceded that the FBI was very tough on Clinton, and it’s the FBI’s job to be “objective” and “fair.” And that the FBI did “what appears to me to be a serious investigation.”
Sanders added that both presumptive nominees, Clinton and Donald Trump should have access to classified information as the nominees.
