State Department Reveals Emails Recovered from Clinton Aide Huma Abedin's Laptop

Report Department of Justice reopens investigation into Hillary’s email server

There was no effort to put any of her people through the legal wringer to see what they might say under duress.

Investigators previously determined Clinton's email habits didn't break the law.

.

The issues of impropriety have been raised in reports from media outlets ranging from the NY-T's to The Daily Caller, and conservative author Peter Schweizer's "Clinton Cash" also fueled demands for a renewed investigation.

Those emails - some of which contained classified information - spurred the FBI in October to reopen its investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, though the bureau would ultimately conclude the messages gave them no reason to change their conclusion not to recommend charges against Clinton or any of her aides. Almost 2800 emails were released by the State Department in response to the 2015 FOIA lawsuit.

In a tweet, Trump also urged the Justice Department to act in prosecuting Abedin and former FBI director James Comey, who the president fired in May amid the mounting investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election and contacts between Moscow and Trump's campaign.

Trump made Clinton's use of a private email server a top campaign issue. And that brings us to another unusual aspect of the FBI's handling of the case.

Gal Gadot to present at Golden Globes
The women protesting Hollywood's culture of sexual harassment at the Golden Globes won't have to stand alone. For example, 22 of the 70 actors have never been nominated, let alone won, a Golden Globe.

Trump's new attack was just his latest assault against the former Democratic nominee and her staff in a sequence that has continued long after the end of the 2016 election campaign. On Tuesday, he seemed to suggest Clinton's aide Huma Abedin should be jailed after the State Department released emails from Abedin containing classified material that were found on the computer of her husband, the disgraced ex-congressman Anthony Weiner.

Last summer, Comey admitted he orchestrated the leaking of his notes - which were his work product and therefore government property - regarding conversations with Trump to the New York Times.

Comey in July 2016 said Clinton's use of a private email server was "careless" but said Clinton and her staff engaged in no "intentional misconduct", and announced that the Federal Bureau of Investigation would not recommend criminal charges against her.

Tuesday's outburst by the President also sheds new light into his apparent belief in, or willingness to perpetrate, the idea for political reasons that there is a "deep state" - a secret cabal of government and intelligence officials conspiring against him and his presidency.

Asked to comment on the president's Tweet, Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said she could not "confirm or deny the existence of any ongoing investigations". He's also blamed Comey, who he fired in May, for allegedly letting Clinton get away without any charges.

But there was no indication that Abedin "had a sense that what she was doing was in violation of the law", Comey added, and investigators couldn't prove any sort of criminal intent.
