The FBI interviewed presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for three-and-a-half hours on Saturday morning as part of its investigation into whether her use of a private email server during her time as Secretary of State broke the law. The interview was conducted at FBI Headquarters in Washington D.C.
People on Twitter were quick to point out that a sit-down with the FBI isn’t casual just because you do it on a long weekend:

The Clinton camp described the interview as more of a friendly visit and insisted it’s the beginning of the end of Clinton’s email troubles. Nick Merrill, a Clinton campaign spokesperson, said in a statement:
Secretary Clinton gave a voluntary interview this morning about her email arrangements while she was secretary. She is pleased to have had the opportunity to assist the Department of Justice in bringing this review to a conclusion.
Nice of her to help out.
