Hillary Clinton claimed Sunday that FBI Director James Comey concluded her statements about using private email “were truthful.”

Clinton made the claim on “Fox News Sunday” after host Chris Wallace challenged her, showing previous comments she had made about the investigation.

Wallace pointed out that Clinton said she did not use the server to send classified material.

“After a long investigation, FBI Director James Comey said none of those things that you told the American public were true,” Wallace said.

Clinton responded, “Director Comey said that my answers were truthful and what I’ve said is consistent with what I have told the American people, that there were decisions discussed and made to classify retroactively certain of the emails.”

She added: “I was communicating with over 300 people in my emailing. They certainly did not believe and had no reason to believe that what they were sending was classified. Now, in retrospect, different agencies come in and say, ‘Well, it should have been.” But that’s not what was happening in real time.'”
