The FBI spent longer questioning Angelina Jolie about child abuse than questioning Hillary Clinton about emails

The FBI reportedly spent four hours questioning Angelina Jolie over accusations that her husband, Brad Pitt, abused their son Maddox on a private plane in September, Marie Claire reports. "The agents wanted a breakdown of everything that happened from when the plane took off to when it landed," a person familiar with the family told Us Weekly. "They're looking into charges of assault."

While the news is concerning for heartbroken fans of Brangelina, it might frustrate critics of Hillary Clinton, too. As Fox News points out, the FBI's interrogation of Jolie actually lasted half an hour longer than its interview with Clinton last July over Clinton's use of a private email server when she was secretary of state. In that probe, Clinton spent just three and a half hours speaking with FBI officers.

In the end, the FBI recommended no criminal charges against Clinton; Jolie and Pitt's investigation is ongoing, with the FBI speaking to key witnesses for another several weeks. "They will present the case to the prosecutor, who will evaluate whether they feel the need to bring charges against Brad," Marie Claire reports.
