The State Department is officially re-opening an internal investigation into whether Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her top aides mishandled classified information. The investigation, which was first reported by the Associated Press, focuses on how classified emails within Clinton’s private server were categorized at the time they were sent.

“Given the Department of Justice has now made its announcement, the State Department intends to conduct its internal review,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said in a statement. “Our goal will be to be as transparent as possible about our results, while complying with our various legal obligations.”

Kirby set no deadline for the investigation’s completion. Kirby said earlier this week former officials and aides can still face “administrative sanctions.” The most serious of those penalties is loss of security clearances, which could complicate Clinton’s naming of a national security team if she’s elected president.

The probe will examine Hillary confidants Cheryl Mills, Jake Sullivan and longtime trusted aide Huma Abedin, who wrote many of the emails to their boss the various investigations have focused on.
