Clinton: "I Have Said During The Interview And In Many Other Occasions Over The Past Month That What I Told The FBI , Which He Said Was Truthful, Is Consistent With What I Have Said Publicly. " NBC'S KRISTEN WELKER: "This week you told two separate news organizations that FBI Director James Comey said quote 'my answers were truthful, and that what I said was consistent with what I have told the American people,' that assertion, as you know, has been debunked by multiple news organizations, which point out that Director Comey did say there was no indication you lied to the FBI, but he didn't weigh in on whether or not you were truthful to the American people. So my question for you is are you mischaracterizing Director Comey's testimony, and is this not undercutting your efforts to rebuild trust with the American people?" CLINTON: "Kristen, I appreciate your asking that, because I was pointing out in both of those instances that Director Comey had said that my answers in my FBI interview were truthful, that's really the bottom line here. And I have said during the interview and in many other occasions over the past month that what I told the FBI, which he said was truthful, is consistent with what I have said publicly."
