  • ABC News(WASHINGTON) -- Former President Bill Clinton and presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton both expressed regret Saturday about the former president's encounter on a Phoenix tarmac with Attorney General Loretta Lynch earlier this week.In a phone interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd, Hillary Clinton spoke out about the meeting for the first time. Clinton claimed to have first learned about her husband's conversation with Lynch in the news. She echoed what both President Clinton and Lynch have said about the meeting -- that it was a chance encounter and was a simple "exchange of pleasantries.""The bottom line for me is I respect the professionalism and integrity of the officials at the Department of Justice handling this process," she said.When pressed on whether the meeting between her husband and Lynch was appropriate, given the ongoing federal investigation into her use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state, Clinton admitted it may not have been a good idea even if the interaction was purely social in nature."Obviously no one wants to see any untoward conclusions drawn, and they've said, you know, they would not do it again," Clinton said.Moments before Hillary Clinton's interview, an aide to Bill Clinton for the first time released a statement to ABC News that expressed the former president’s regret over the decision because of how it has been perceived."The President's conversation with the Attorney General was unplanned and was entirely social in nature. But recognizing how others could take another view of it, he agrees with the Attorney General that he would not do it again," the aide said.Hillary Clinton's comments came after an interview with the FBI earlier today in Washington, D.C., as part of the investigation into her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.

  • The White House(ASPEN, Colo.) -- Vice President Joe Biden took a joking jab at former House Speaker Newt Gingrich Saturday, as his former colleague in Congress is now rumored to be near the top of Donald Trump’s list of potential running mates.Speaking at the Aspen Ideas Summit, Biden pointed Gingrich out in the crowd, asking loudly, "Newt, are you going to do it?"The crowd laughed as Gingrich jokingly sought advice from the sitting vice president."Should I?" Gingrich said.Biden then responded, "I think [Trump] needs the help, yes.""Should he be vice president?" Biden said. "I tell him, it's a hell of a job. Get a big pay raise. It's all work."In addition to comments on his "cancer moonshot" initiative, Biden also answered some questions on politics and the 2016 election.Expressing no regrets about not jumping in the race, Biden admitted he was concerned about the tone developing in the current matchup."What worries me about this election is it looks like an election that's going to be conducted that is a frontal assault on the other person," Biden said. "And I'm not sure, even where there's the substantive arguments being made, how much it will be listened to by the press. And we’ve got to get by this place, we really do for the sake of the country, we've got to get by it."
