Hillary Clinton on Friday said that she may have mischaracterized FBI Director James Comey’s statements about her truthfulness during the investigation into her use of a private email server.

Clinton was asked at the National Association of Black Journalists-National Association of Hispanic Journalists Convention if she misrepresented Comey’s conclusions in two recent interviews she gave.
“I may have short-circuited it, and for that I will try to clarify,” she responded.
At the close of his investigation, Comey announced that the FBI had found over a hundred emails containing information that was classified at the time they were sent. The conclusions clashed with Clinton’s repeated claims that no emails she sent or received had been marked classified at the time they were transmitted.
Comey laid out a number of findings that contradicted many of Clintons’ claims about her email server and handling of classified information.
But in an interview with Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” this week, Clinton suggested the FBI director had concluded that she never misled the public.
