Obama on FBI: ‘We don’t operate on leaks’

The president has delivered backhanded criticism of the FBI for its conduct of various inquiries into the email hygiene of Clinton and those around her.

“We don’t operate on incomplete information,” Obama said in an interview with NowThis News, written up in the New York Times. “We don’t operate on leaks. We operate based on concrete decisions that are made.”

Obama continued: “When this was investigated thoroughly the last time, the conclusion of the F.B.I., the conclusion of the Justice Department, the conclusion of repeated congressional investigations was that she had made some mistakes but that there wasn’t anything there that was prosecutable.”
