Report: FBI Director Says Clinton Email Probe Not ‘Security Inquiry’ Despite Clinton Claims To Contrary

Fox  News Chief Intelligence Correspondent Catherine Herridge reported on Wednesday’s “Happening Now” that during an off-camera briefing FBI Director James Comey stated that the FBI does investigations, not security inquiries, despite Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s characterization of the inquiry into her email conduct as a “security inquiry” earlier in the week.

Herridge stated that in response to a question on whether the FBI’s investigation is a “security inquiry,” “Director Comey said to us point blank: ‘I don’t even know what that means, a security inquiry. We do investigations here at the FBI.'”

Herridge pointed out that this, Clinton referred to the FBI’s investigation as a “security inquiry.”
