FBI to Send Investigative Report On Hillary Clinton to Congress

The FBI is expected to send to Congress Tuesday afternoon a report the bureau provided to the Justice Department last month to explain why it recommended no charges in the Hillary Clinton email server investigation, according to US officials briefed on the matter.

The decision to provide the investigative material on a case in which charges were not brought is exceedingly rare. The report will include notes from the interviews of Clinton and other witnesses in the investigation. The notes, called 302s, represent an FBI agent’s memos on the interviews and will be provided along with other investigative material.

The material is designated classified so it will need to be reviewed by congressional officials in a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, or SCIF. And due to its confidential status, it cannot legally be shared with the public.

The interviews in the Clinton email case were voluntary and the FBI practice is to not have recorded or transcribed, but instead to have them “memorialized” with notes taken by an FBI agent.
