According to Fox News, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is again under federal investigation by the State Department for allegations that she and her staff mishandled classified information.
Fox News reported that “The department’s investigation aims to determine whether Clinton and her closest aides violated government protocols by using her private server to receive, hold and transmit classified and top-secret government documents. The department declined to say when its inquiry began, but it follows the conclusion of the FBI’s probe into the matter, which did not result in any actions being taken against Clinton or any of her aides.”
Clinton and her associates will be allowed to retain their security clearances while the investigation proceeds, although those privileges might be revoked based on the outcome of the probe.
Fox News noted findings of the FBI’s investigation that could impact the current probe:
“During the FBI’s investigation of Clinton’s use of top-secret and classified information on her private server, Comey said there were seven email chains on Clinton’s computer that were classified at the ‘Top Secret/Special Access Program level.’ Another 2,000 emails on her private server were found to have contained information deemed classified now, though not marked classified when sent. In addition, the server also contained 22 top-secret emails deemed too damaging to national security to be released.”
Clinton’s spokesperson contradicted the report that she is under investigation again, claiming that “Nothing’s been more thoroughly dissected. It’s over. Case closed. Literally.”
