The FBI has declined to give the State Department any kind of progress report on its efforts to recover documents from Hillary Clinton's private email server, NBC News reported.
A federal judge last month ordered the State Department to ask the FBI for information about what investigators found on Hillary Clinton's e-mail server.
"At this time, consistent with long-standing Department of Justice and FBI policy, we can neither confirm nor deny the existence of any ongoing investigation, nor are we in a position to provide additional information at this time," the FBI told the State Department in a letter dated Monday, according to a court filing in one of the email FOIA cases.
In fact, the FBI declined even to tell the State Department what it has already admitted publicly — that it's doing an investigation.
Clinton's emails are under investigation because she used a non-State.gov account to conduct business during her tenure as Secretary of State.
