Help Trump FIGHT Impeachment [ACT NOW]
The State Department is ramping up its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state, contacting dozens of her former aides.
Per The Hill:
The Washington Post reported Saturday that as many as 130 former Clinton aides have been contacted by State Department investigators in recent weeks, with many being informed that they have been found “culpable” for transmitting information that should have been classified at a higher level than it was originally sent.
Former Obama administration officials described the probe to the Post as an extraordinary investigation fueled by political animosity.
But current officials speaking on the condition of anonymity told the newspaper that the probe was structured to avoid the appearance of political bias.
The probe, which reportedly reached the stage where former officials began being contacted shortly after Trump’s inauguration, was described by one senior agency official to the Post as having nothing to do with President Trump’s vows to investigate Clinton if elected during the 2016 election.
The FBI investigated Clinton’s use of a personal email system during her time as secretary of state. The bureau ultimately determined Clinton had not committed any crimes but described her practices as “reckless.”
