Fox apol­o­gizes for in­ac­cu­rate Hil­lary Clin­ton re­port

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

NEW YORK » Fox News Chan­nel has apol­o­gized for an in­ac­cu­rate re­port last week that Hil­lary Clin­ton would likely be in­dicted as a re­sult of an in­ves­ti­ga­tion by the FBI into the Clin­ton Foun­da­tion.

Fox’s Bret Baier, who ini­tially re­ported on the case Wed­nes­day, said Fri­day that “it was a mis­take, and for that I’m sorry.”

Clin­ton’s crit­ics have ac­cused her fam­ily of giv­ing donors spe­cial ac­cess to the State Depart­ment when Clin­ton was sec­re­tary of state.

The As­so­ci­ated Press re­ported this week that FBI agents seek­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the foun­da­tion talked to Jus­tice Depart­ment lawyers last win­ter about al­le­ga­tions they wanted to pur­sue, but pros­e­cu­tors were wary about the strength of the in­for­ma­tion they pre­sented. It’s un­clear whether FBI agents are still look­ing into the foun­da­tion.
