    The city of New Orleans will remove four statues of Confederate-era events and figures in an effort to divorce itself from symbols that some see as problematic. The first statue, the Liberty Place Monument, was taken down early Monday morning.

    Clinton was interviewed on July 2nd at FBI headquarters in Washington. FBI Director James Comey announced the following Tuesday that the FBI would not recommend prosecuting her.

    He said the notes were classified Top Secret. An FBI official said Monday that FBI lawyers have been reviewing whether the notes can be turned over and whether any redactions were necessary.

    The notes are not verbatim transcripts of the interview. Under the FBI's long-standing policy, agents do not make audio or video recordings of their interviews. Instead, summaries of the interviews are written on FBI Form 302.
