ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION). STORY: Republican vice presidential nominee Gov. Mike Pence on Tuesday (September 6) slammed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while she served as secretary of state. He told supporters in Springfield, Missouri that her decision to use the private account were proof that her judgment and temperament were not fit for a U.S. president, unlike Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. According to records released by the FBI on Friday, Clinton told the bureau's investigators in a July interview that she could not recall getting any briefings on how to handle classified information or comply with laws governing the preservation of federal records. Contradicting Clinton's comment that she never exchanged classified information over her private email server, the FBI said that at least 81 email threads contained information that was classified at the time, although the agency said the final number may be more than 2,000. While the FBI has scolded Clinton over the handling of classified information, the agency recommended that no criminal charges be filed against her. Clinton, who is facing Trump for the White House in the Nov. 8 election, has been dogged for more than a year by the fallout from her decision to use an unauthorized private email account run from the basement of her Chappaqua, New York, home.
