Hillary Says Email Scandal 'Moving Toward a Resolution'

"I've been more transparent than anybody I can think of in public life."

Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton appeared on CBS Face the Nation on Sunday and told the audience things are wrapping up regarding the scandal over her homebrewed email server.

"I think we're getting closer and closer to wrapping this up," Clinton said.

Moderator John Dickerson asked about Bryan Pagliano, the IT staffer who helped set up her personal server and was recently granted immunity by the FBI. Clinton said she was "delighted" he was cooperating.

"There is no basis for that. It's a security review," she said. "I'm delighted that he has agreed to cooperate, as everyone else has. And I think that we'll be moving toward a resolution of this."

She went on to say she hoped that the more than 2000 classified emails found on her homebrewed server would lead to a discussion about how materials were classified.

"This really raises serious questions about this whole process. So I'm hoping that, you know, we'll get through this and then everybody can take a hard look at the inter-agency disputes and the arguments over retroactive classification," she said. "Remember, I'm the one who asked that all my emails be made public. I've been more transparent than anybody I can think of in public life."

Clinton also did not call on Sanders to exit the nomination race and clear a path to victory for her.

"Well, I think that's up to him," she said. "I'm just very pleased at where my campaign is right now. I was really gratified by the results yesterday, we'll net delegates. And we're feeling good about the upcoming contests."

Hillary was asked about low Democrat turnout in the primary process to which she answered, "I don't know exactly what that means," she said of the turnout drop. "You know, I've gotten more votes than anybody running on either side. I've gotten more votes than Donald Trump, although I'm sure he doesn't want to hear that. And we've gotten it from a wide, broad base."
