Fox News host Bret Baier grilled Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton Monday at the network’s town hall about her use of a private email server.

Clinton was asked several questions before Baier got to the topic of the ongoing FBI investigation that focuses on whether classified information was mishandled on her email server. Clinton is not said to be the target of the investigation.

Baier gave her a few rapid-fire questions on the topic.

“The F.BI. investigation is still hanging over your campaign,” Baier said. “I’ve heard others say that neither you nor your lawyers have been apprised that you are a target of the investigation. Is that true?”

“Absolutely true,” Clinton responded.

“Have you or your lawyers been apprised that any members of your current or former staff are targets of the investigation?” Baier asked.

“Absolutely not,” Clinton replied.

“At the time you and your staff deleted 32,000 e-mails, about half of the total volume, were you aware that the server was going to be sought as evidence by federal authorities?” Baier asked.

“No,” Clinton said, then asked to clarify the “misinformation going on around here.” She said that she has already said that using her private server “wasn’t the best choice,” and that nothing she received or sent was considered classified.

    ps. Here’s the entire exchange.

  4. They needed to offer something in the way of red meat to their brain-dead audience…It really was the only reason they probably wanted to have Hillary on if you ask me because it sure wasn’t of any interest to the Democratic base that will be voting tomorrow in Michigan.
