State Dept Finds 30 Violations, Infractions Related to Hillary Clinton’s Emails
New reports reveals findings of State Department probe into Hillary's email misuse
A new report from the State Departement has revealed that the ongoing probe into Hillary Clinton's email server misuse has found 23 “violations” and 7 “infractions.”
The State Dept. has identified “multiple security incidents” involving at least 15 individuals in the handling of Hillary Clinton’s emails as part of an ongoing probe into her use of a private email server.
The incidents were detailed in a report sent to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R–IA), who pushed the inquiry earlier in the year.
“To this point, the Department has assessed culpability to 15 individuals, some of whom were culpable in multiple security incidents,” Mary Elizabeth Taylor, the State Department’s Assistant Secretary in the Bureau of Legislative Affairs, wrote in a letter to Senator Grassley.
Back in 2015, we first learned that Hillary Clinton had deleted (bleached) 32 thousand emails from her computer, claiming they were “personal.”
According to the New York Post, the State Department said in a letter on Monday that they’ve identified 30 security incidents regarding the handling of Hillary Clinton’s emails.
The letter, sent from an assistant secretary at the department to Sen. Grassley, said multiple “violations” and “infractions” have been issued as part of their investigation into Clinton’s emails, Fox News reported.
“DS has issued 23 violations and 7 infractions incidents. … This number will likely change as the review progresses,” Taylor wrote in the letter.
The State Department added that they expect the ongoing probe to be closed on Sept. 1 and acknowledged it’s been unusually long, according to the report.
“Given the volume of emails provided to the Department from former Secretary Clinton’s private email server, the Department’s process has been necessarily more complicated and complex requiring a significant dedication of time and resources,” Taylor wrote in the letter, Fox reported.
Former FBI Director James Comey said in 2016 that he would not pursue charges against Clinton after the bureau’s investigation into the handling of her emails, but called her conduct “extremely careless.”
President Trump tweeted about the Fox report early Tuesday, writing that the news was “really big.”
“Wow! The State Department said it has identified 30 Security Incidents involving current or former employees and their handling of Crooked Hillary Clinton’s Emails. @FoxNews,” Trump wrote.
“This is really big. Never admitted before. Highly Classified Material,” he added.
"Will the Dems investigate this?"
