February 26, 2016: Clinton calls the FBI’s investigation into her emails a “security inquiry,” not a formal investigation.

In an interview, she says the two are frequently confused with each other. She adds, “I am personally not concerned about it. I think there will be a resolution of the security inquiry.”

However, the New York Times will comment several days later, “The FBI’s case did begin as a security referral from the inspectors general of the State Department and the nation’s intelligence agencies, who were concerned that classified information might have been stored outside a secure government network. But multiple law enforcement officials said the matter quickly became an investigation into whether anyone had committed a crime in handling classified information.” (The New York Times, 3/2/2016) (MSNBC, 2/26/2016)
