Though Hillary Clinton is no stranger to a flight on Air Force One as a former first lady... the trip with U.S. President Barack Obama was a first since he endorsed her. But it hasn't been all clear skies leading up to this trip as the Democratic presumptive nominee. The FBI questioned Clinton over the weekend for their investigation into her private e-mail server during her tenure as secretary of state. Moments before Clinton and Obama set off to campaign in Charlotte, North Carolina, FBI Director James Comey revealed his agency's findings in the investigation. (SOUNDBITE) (English) FBI DIRECTOR JAMES COMEY SAYING: "Although we did not find clear evidence that secretary Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information." Though Clinton didn't immediately comment on the FBI's findings... perhaps weighing a more calculated reply later... her campaign appeared ready to move on and said it was, quote, "pleased" with the decision. 'Moving on' from here now means the Democratic National Convention for Clinton in just a couple weeks... now that a cloud of uncertainty over her White House bid has finally been lifted.
