|And here we go again.|
Justice Department officials are taking a fresh look at Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she served as secretary of State, The Daily Beast has learned.
An ally of Attorney General Jeff Sessions who is familiar with the thinking at the Justice Department’s Washington headquarters described it as an effort to gather new details on how Clinton and her aides handled classified material. Officials’ questions include how much classified information was sent over Clinton’s server; who put that information into an unclassified environment, and how; and which investigators knew about these matters and when. The Sessions ally also said officials have questions about immunity agreements that Clinton aides may have made.
A former senior DOJ official familiar with department leadership’s thinking said officials there are acutely aware of demands from President Donald Trump that they look into Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of State—and that they lock up her top aide, Huma Abedin.
Just like clockwork.
Trump and his White House are under all kinds of increased scrutiny, so they throw out their favorite distraction.
Millions of taxpayer dollars, and thousands of man hours have already been wasted on this bullshit, and the Republicans came up empty.
To do this again, while there are serious investigations concerning their man in the White House, is a nakedly transparent attempt at distraction.
