WASHINGTON, D.C. — Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may not be off the hook just yet in regard to her handling of classified emails.
According to a report published Thursday by The Daily Beast (https://www.thedailybeast.com/justice-department-looking-into-hillary-clintons-emails-again), the failed Democratic presidential candidate is once again under investigation for unlawfully storing classified government emails on a private server located in her home office.
As published in The Beast’s report, the focus of this new examination, according to the Daily Beast:
How much classified information was stored on Clinton’s private server?
Who aided Clinton in transferring that information into an unclassified area, and how?
What did Obama era FBI agents know about the matter and what, if any, immunity agreements were struck between the Justice Department and Clinton’s former aides?
The probe by Attorney General Jeff Sessions is reportedly being reopened at the urging of President Donald Trump, who has made no secret of his desire to see his former campaign rival brought to justice.
“Many people in our Country are asking what the ‘Justice’ Department is going to do about the fact that totally Crooked Hillary, AFTER receiving a subpoena from the United States Congress, deleted and ‘acid washed’ 33,000 Emails? No justice!” Trump tweeted on December 2.
Also being investigated, according to the report, is top former Clinton aide, Huma Abedin.
“Crooked Hillary Clinton’s top aid, Huma Abedin, has been accused of disregarding basic security protocols. She put Classified Passwords into the hands of foreign agents. Remember sailors pictures on submarine? Jail! Deep State Justice Dept must finally act? Also on Comey & others,” the president tweeted on January 2.
The decision to reopen the investigation into Clinton comes in the aftermath of Trump accusing key members of the FBI of being part of the deep state after seemingly giving Hillary Clinton a pass after their initial review.
“People should be encouraged that the new leadership at the Justice Department is actually interested in a nonpartisan, above-board Justice Department that treats every citizen equally,” Mark Corallo, former DOJ spokesman for the George W. Bush administration, told the Daily Beast.
“It’s about time they’re doing a review of this whole mess.”
