The FBI is expected to release to the public as soon as Wednesday the report it sent to the Justice Department in July recommending no charges for Hillary Clinton as part of the bureau’s investigation into her private email server, CNN reported Tuesday.

Clinton was interviewed by the FBI for over three hours regarding her use of a private server while at the State Department. The interview was not recorded and the former secretary of state did not take an oath, but FBI agents present did take notes while questioning Clinton. The notes will be released in response to multiple Freedom of Information Act requests.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch declined to press charges against Clinton last month, citing the FBI report.

CNN reported on the FBI sending its report to Congress earlier this month:

Also to be released is Hillary Clinton’s 302, the FBI agent notes from Clinton’s voluntary interview at FBI headquarters. The report is about 30 pages, and the 302 is about a dozen pages according to the officials.

Not yet being released are additional notes from interviews of Clinton aides or other investigative materials that were sent to Congress."

Congress received the notes and documents on Aug. 16 detailing why the FBI recommended no charges against Clinton.
