“The Trump administration is investigating the email records of dozens of current and former senior State Department officials who sent messages to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email”
Hillary is one lucky woman. Anyone else who set up a private server for conducting government business, including classified communications, would be in prison right now.
But thanks to James Comey stepping out of line and letting her off, Hillary got away with her private shadow government scheme.
The prosecution of Hillary may not be on the front burner, but the investigation into the email practices of her office is not over. The Washington Post reports, State Dept. intensifies email probe of Hillary Clinton’s former aides:
The Trump administration is investigating the email records of dozens of current and former senior State Department officials who sent messages to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email, reviving a politically toxic matter that overshadowed the 2016 election, current and former officials said.
As many as 130 officials have been contacted in recent weeks by State Department investigators — a list that includes senior officials who reported directly to Clinton as well as others in lower-level jobs whose emails were at some point relayed to her inbox, said current and former State Department officials. Those targeted were notified that emails they sent years ago have been retroactively classified and now constitute potential security violations, according to letters reviewed by The Washington Post.
In virtually all of the cases, potentially sensitive information, now recategorized as “classified,” was sent to Clinton’s unsecure inbox.
While the investigation has been ongoing for a while, WaPo notes that it picked up steam in August, leading to griping that it’s politically motivated:
To many of those under scrutiny, including some of the Democratic Party’s top foreign policy experts, the recent flurry of activity surrounding the Clinton email case represents a new front on which the Trump administration could be accused of employing the powers of the executive branch against perceived political adversaries.
It’s unlikely anything will come of this. But you can’t take away our dreams.DONATE
