President Obama Defends Hillary Clinton Amid Investigation Into Private Email Server

Obama was confronted on Fox News about Clinton's use of a private server.

“What I also know, because I handle a lot of classified information, is that there are -- there’s classified, and then there’s classified,” said Obama, emphasizing his second use of “classified.” “There’s stuff that is really top secret, top secret, and there’s stuff that is being presented to the president or the secretary of state that you might not want on the transom or going out over the wire but is basically stuff that you could get in open-source.”

When confronted about the investigation earlier this week, Clinton laughed off the prospect that she would be put in handcuffs when it concludes.

"If they want to talk to her, they can talk to her," he said. "But they haven't asked for that."

The FBI is expected to interview Clinton's closest aides and the presidential candidate may also be part of its investigation. It's not clear when the investigation will be completed.

The FBI has not formally named Clinton as a target and she has not been accused of any crimes.

“How many times do I have to say it, Chris? Guaranteed,” he said.
