Hillary on FBI: ‘I Can’t Control What the Republicans and Their Allies Do’

‘I think it’s important for voters to know what are they doing’

TODD: "Two more quick questions. The 'Des Moines Register' editorial, in praising you and your experience, did bring up the e-mail issue as one of those things that they're frustrated with how you responded to it. Let me just ask you this week. Last week you were asked about the FBI investigation. Are you concerned? You said you haven't been contacted by them. Are you concerned this investigation is taking too long, that it's putting an extra cloud over your candidacy and until it gets behind you, you're going to have these issues. And Michael Bloomberg even cited it as a reason why he's thinking about running."
CLINTON: "No, I'm not concerned, because I know what the facts are. I never sent or received any material marked 'classified.' I cannot control what the Republicans leak and what they are contending. And I thought it was interesting, Chuck, you'll as a political observer understand why, back a couple months ago Kevin McCarthy spilled the beans that the Benghazi investigation was all about bringing me down, something that I suspected but I went ahead, testified for 11 hours, answered all their questions and even they admitted there was nothing new. Now, Senator Grassley shows up at a Trump rally yesterday in Iowa. He's the chairman of the judiciary committee who has -- and his staff have been behind and pushing a lot of these stories, and announces he's there for the simple reason, to defeat me. I can't control what the Republicans are doing. But I know what the facts are and I will just keep putting them out there. This is something that I think is very clear about what happened and I know it will be over and resolved at some point but I can't control what the Republicans and their allies do, but I think it's important for voters to know what are they doing."
