The FBI is reportedly getting ready to release notes from its three-hour interview with Hillary Clinton.
Congress submitted the request for information after a July panel at which House members questioned FBI Director James Comey about the interview. Members had expressed the concern that Clinton's statements to law enforcement were different from those she had made to the public, an allegation that Comey was unwilling to confirm.

While there is no transcript of the interview with Clinton, the bureau is prepared to hand over extensive notes from the session by the end of this week, Fox News reported Monday. Comey had said following the interview that "no reasonable prosecutor" would bring a case against Clinton for her mishandling of classified information, but later acknowledged to Congress that Clinton said things in public that he did not view as true, including the idea that she did not send or receive any messages marked as classified.
The development comes shortly after reports that Preet Bharara, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, is leading an investigation into the nonprofit Clinton Foundation over allegations that foundation officials coordinated improperly with officials at the State Department.
Bharara, whose distance from Washington is viewed as giving him more independence than attorneys at the Justice Department, gained a reputation for prosecuting crime in the financial industry, as well as politicians in New York. His record includes convictions for several associates of Bernie Madoff, as well as the state senate majority leader who recently received five years in prison on charges of corruption.
