The State Department has reportedly “ramped up” its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as Secretary of State; reaching out to more than 130 former officials and employees.
“The State Department reportedly intensified a probe into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton‘s private email server, contacting dozens of former aides involved in email exchanges that passed through her server,” reports The Hill.
“The probe, which reportedly reached the stage where former officials began being contacted shortly after Trump’s inauguration, was described by one senior agency official to the Post as having nothing to do with President Trump‘s vows to investigate Clinton if elected during the 2016 election,” adds the website.
“This has nothing to do with who is in the White House,” the official said. “This is about the time it took to go through millions of emails, which is about 3½ years.”
“The process is set up in a manner to completely avoid any appearance of political bias,” another official told the Post.
