The State Department continues to deny that any "quid pro quo" took place between one of its senior officials and an FBI agent over changing the classification of one of Hillary Clinton's emails.

FOX's Lucas Tomlinson has the latest from the Pentagon:

In a statement to FOX News, Undersecretary of State Patrick Kennedy says, "There was no quid pro quo, nor was there any bargaining. At no point in our conversation was I under the impression we were bargaining."

Now retired FBI agent Brian McCauley told the Washington Post, he remembers his conversation differently. He says Kennedy called to request one of Hillary Clinton's emails not be classified.

McCauley said he had a favor of his own, putting two FBI agents back in Baghdad. But once the FBI learned the email in question was about Bengahzi, the deal was called off.
