Republicans have also asked officials to revoke her security clearances.
The State Department has decided to restart their own investigation into how Hillary Clinton and her aides mishandled any classified information.
The presumptive Democrat presidential candidate escaped prosecution when the FBI recommended the Department of Justice not bring charges against her.
The State Department began theirs when they found “22 emails from Clinton’s private server to be ‘top secret.'” They stopped their investigation when the FBI began theirs in April:
“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.
People cannot face discipline if they no longer work at the State Department, but the officials could add information about security violations to his or her file. This means they could possibly revoke their security clearance.
The department will more than likely investigate Cheryl Mills, Jake Sullivan, and Huma Abedin, Clinton’s closest aides. They did not “identify former officials that still hold security clearances,” even though one email showed Mills still has them.
Republican senators have already asked Secretary of State John Kerry to revoke security clearances for Clinton and her staff:
“Failure to impose any sanctions for these clear violations of State Department procedure undermines the integrity of the State Department’s system for handling classified information and sends the wrong message to the Department’s employees,” the senators wrote in a letter Thursday.
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan also asked James Clapper, director of National Intelligence, to revoke Clinton’s security clearances.
