Clinton’s Secret Server Scandal Endures As The FBI Steps Up Its Investigation

- November 13, 2015

The FBI Investigation Into Clinton's Secret Server Is Expanding "By Examining Possible Overlap Of The Clinton Foundation Charity With State Department Business," Potentially Violating Public Corruption Laws. "The FBI is widening its investigation of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's use of a private email account while she was U.S. secretary of state to determine whether any public corruption laws were violated, Fox News reported on Monday. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has been looking into whether classified material was mishandled during Clinton's tenure at the State Department from 2009-2013. It will expand its probe by examining possible overlap of the Clinton Foundation charity with State Department business, Fox reported, citing three unidentified intelligence officials." (Doina Chiacu, "FBI Expanding Investigation Of Clinton Private Email Use: Fox," Reuters, 1/11/16)

The FBI's Inquiry Into Clinton's Secret Server Has Evolved From A "Preliminary Fact-Finding Stage." "The FBI's recent moves suggest that its inquiry could have evolved from the preliminary fact-finding stage that the agency launches when it receives a credible referral, according to former FBI and DOJ officials interviewed [sic] by POLITICO." (Rachael Bade, "FBI Steps Up Interviews In Clinton Email Probe," Politico, 11/10/15)

The FBI Has "Stepped Up" Its Inquiries. "Even as Hillary Clinton tries to put questions about her private email server behind her, the FBI has stepped up inquiries into the security of the former Secretary of State's home-made email system, and how aides communicated over email, POLITICO has learned." (Rachael Bade, "FBI Steps Up Interviews In Clinton Email Probe," Politico, 11/10/15)

  • The FBI Spoke With A Top State Department Aide About "Whether Anyone At State Was Concerned About Classified Information Being Put At Risk By Communicating Over Email." "The FBI around early October requested documents from a company involved in the server arrangement after Clinton left State. It also interviewed a former high-ranking policy official at State about the contents of top Clinton aides' emails … The official, who spoke to POLITICO on the condition of anonymity, said the questions explored whether anyone at State was concerned about classified information being put at risk by communicating over email … Confirmation of the interview and document requests is the first public indication that the agency is moving ahead with its inquiry - and possibly expanding it." (Rachael Bade, "FBI Steps Up Interviews In Clinton Email Probe," Politico, 11/10/15)

Tom Fuentes, Former Assistant Director Of The FBI: "It Sounds Like A Full-Blown Investigation…" "This sounds to me like it's more than a preliminary inquiry; it sounds like a full-blown investigation … when you have this amount of resources going into it … I think it's at the investigative level." (Rachael Bade, "FBI Steps Up Interviews In Clinton Email Probe," Politico, 11/10/15)
