Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton met with the members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation for more than three-and-a-half hours on Saturday over the use of the private email server set up at her Chappaqua home while secretary of state.

The interview was held at FBI headquarters in Washington.

"Secretary Clinton gave a voluntary interview this morning about her email arrangements while she was Secretary," Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon said in a statement. "She is pleased to have had the opportunity to assist the Department of Justice in bringing this review to a conclusion.

"Out of respect for the investigative process, she will not comment further on her interview."

Clinton's meeting comes after a controversial incident in which her husband, former President Bill Clinton, met with Attorney General Loretta Lynch in a half-hour private, unplanned meeting at the Phoenix airport last week.

Lynch, who is overseeing the investigation, said the conversation was strictly personal and did not include any mention of the email server, but acknowledge that it "cast a shadow" over the Justice Department's investigation of the email server.

Lynch then issued a statement saying she would “be accepting” whatever recommendation FBI Director James Comey, a Yonkers native, and prosecutors bring her.
