Huma Abedin, a close aide to Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton, has been questioned by FBI agents investigating whether classified material was mishandled on the private email server used by the former secretary of State and her aides, according to a person familiar with the investigation.

Abedin was interviewed for about two hours at the FBI’s field office in Washington on April 5. It is the latest indication that FBI agents have completed much of their background work and are nearing a conclusion in the inquiry.
