If you thought the government was done investigating Hillary Clinton‘s emails, guess again.
After the FBI and DOJ closed the matter––apparently for good––the State Department announced tonight that they are reopening their investigation of potential mishandling of classified information over Clinton’s private email server.
It’s actually precisely because the FBI investigation is over that State is bringing its back, apparently go their investigation didn’t “interfere” with the FBI’s.
This means that Clinton’s aides could still face punishment for mishandling information.
The State Department had to address charges that they had a “lax” culture on classified material when Clinton was Secretary of State after FBI Director James Comey suggested that was the case.
One Republican senator touted this news and said he made a big request of State today:
Today, I asked Sec. Kerry to suspend security clearances of Clinton & her aides. Now, State is reopening the case https://t.co/98YpYoo6nZ
