WASHINGTON—The Federal Bureau of Investigation on Friday took the unusual step of releasing internal documents from its now-closed investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email arrangement.
In a statement, the FBI said it was making public a summary of Mrs. Clinton’s July interview with agents, as well as a factual summary of the bureau’s findings in the investigation.

“We are making these materials available to the public in the interest of transparency and in response to numerous Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests,” the agency said in a short statement.
The FBI closed the investigation into whether Mrs. Clinton or her aides mishandled classified information earlier this year without recommending any charges.
FBI Director James Comey said at the time that while Mrs. Clinton had been “extremely careless” in choosing to use a personal email server for all her government business, no reasonable prosecutor would pursue charges in such a case.
