Hillary Clinton email probe by the US State Department restarting its investigation into the handling of classified material as secretary of state.
The likely Democratic presidential nominee learned this week that Hillary Clinton will not face criminal charges over her use of private email.
The FBI said that although she had sent and received sensitive material there was no evidence of intent.
Now that inquiry is over, the State Department will reopen its review.
As well as the former secretary of state, it will also include some of her former aides, all of whom have now left the department.
Hillary Clinton – and some of her most trusted senior advisors – will twist in the wind a while longer. The State Department’s renewed inquiry into possible mishandling of classified information in emails is not nearly as serious as the recently closed FBI criminal investigation, but it keeps the email server story alive for an indeterminate period of time.
While the most serious consequence – loss of security clearance – seems impossible (bordering on absurd) to enforce on Mrs. Clinton were she to be elected president, it could prevent her from placing any affected staff into high levels of her administration.
And, needless to say, any sort of administrative sanction Mrs Clinton or her staff receives – such as an official letter of reprimand – would instantly become a political weapon in the hands of her Republican adversaries.
Shortly after FBI Director James Comey announced he would recommend no criminal charges against Hillary Clinton, her campaign issued a press release saying they were glad the matter is resolved.
