DOJ prepares new probe of Clinton’s email server

The Trump administration is launching another probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state, a new report said Thursday.


Attorney General Jeff Sessions hopes to uncover new details on how Clinton and her aides handled classified material, The Daily Beast reported, citing a source close to the former Alabama senator.
The new probe was prompted by President Trump’s repeated calls on Twitter and elsewhere for another FBI investigation into “Crooked Hillary,” the source said.
“Many people in our Country are asking what the ‘Justice’ Department is going to do about the fact that totally Crooked Hillary, AFTER receiving a subpoena from the United States Congress, deleted and ‘acid washed’ 33,000 Emails? No justice!” Trump tweeted early last month in a typical barb aimed at his former opponent.

The source said it was unclear whether the Justice Department would still be interested in Clinton’s emails without Trump’s pressure.
The revelation of the new probe came after the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch released emails it obtained from Justice that show that top Clinton aide Huma Abedin had sent classified emails to a personal laptop she shared with her husband, convicted pervert Anthony Weiner.
Brian Fallon, a former spokesman for the Justice Department and Clinton’s presidential campaign, told the website he suspects that Justice officials are reopening the probe “to give Trump and his allies something to talk about and point to, and something to give Fox News to devote segments to.”
“I think that even that is extremely dangerous, and that the Justice Department should not be opening itself up to the perception that it is bending to political pressures from the White House,” Fallon continued. “The Justice Department is supposed to operate independently of the White House, and even if this is just a perfunctory step that they’re taking to try to appease the president, that in and of itself is an abuse of the DOJ authority.”
Nick Merrill, Clinton’s spokesman, said Trump was just manufacturing a distraction from bad news engulfing his administration — including the bombshell new book by Michael Wolff, “Fire and Fury,” which paints a dismal picture of the president’s White House.
