Washington: US pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Hil­lary Clin­ton has been ques­tioned by the FBI over her use of emails while she was sec­re­tary of state, her cam­paign says. A spokesper­son said it was a vol­un­tary in­ter­view.

The FBI is in­ves­ti­gat­ing Mrs Clin­ton and her aides over whether they mis­han­dled clas­si­fied in­for­ma­tion on a pri­vate email server she used while serv­ing as sec­re­tary of state.

Mrs Clin­ton de­nies han­dling clas­si­fied in­for­ma­tion in her pri­vate emails. She said she set up the email ad­dress for rea­sons of con­ve­nience, be­cause it was eas­ier to do ev­ery­thing from her Black­berry than to have sev­eral phones or tablets. How­ever, a state depart­ment in­quiry ac­cused her and other former US sec­re­taries of state of poorly man­ag­ing email se­cu­rity. The justice depart­ment is now seek­ing to es­tab­lish whether this con­sti­tutes a crim­i­nal of­fence. BBC
