President Obama Says FBI Investigations Should Not ‘Operate on Innuendo’


screen-shot-2016-11-02-at-10-58-12-amPresident Barack Obama finally weighed in on the reports that the FBI uncovered new emails that may be related to the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s server in an interview that aired on Wednesday.

In an interview with NowThisNews, Obama seemed to make it clear that news of the investigation has not changed his opinion of Hillary Clinton.

“I do think that there is a norm that when there are investigations we don’t operate on innuendo  and we don’t operate on incomplete information and we don’t operate on leaks,” Obama said during the interview. “We operate based on concrete decisions that are made. When this was investigated thoroughly last time the conclusion of the FBI, the conclusion of the Justice Department, the conclusion of repeated congressional investigations was she had made some mistakes but that there wasn’t anything there that was prosecutable.”
