This time, James Comey isn’t the one saying it: There’s a new investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails.
According to Daily Mail, the State Department has commenced a formal inquiry into whether Clinton and her aides violated the law with her use of a private email server. If the State Department deems it appropriate, the security clearances of Clinton and her aides could be revoked.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley (R-IA) told Fox News that the investigation was proceeding; Grassley has already started an investigation into whether Clinton intervened in a Bangladeshi investigation in order to help a Clinton Foundation donor. Of that investigation, Grassley stated, “This new evidence of pay-to-play and special treatment reinforces the appearance that donations to the Clinton Foundation resulted in favorable treatment by Secretary Clinton’s State Department.”
Clinton’s spokesman, Nick Merrill, responded to the news of a new investigation, saying, “Nothing’s been more thoroughly dissected. It’s over. Case closed. Literally.”
As Fox News reported:
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.
