Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Federal Inspectors Request Investigation Into Clinton Emails

The Inspector General of the State Department and the Intelligence Community Inspector General have requested that the Justice Department open a full investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email account while she held the position of secretary of state.

The officials believe that a full investigation is required to understand if she misused sensitive and/or classified information while using her own home-brew email server and personal email systems. Unlike reported earlier, this is not a criminal investigation (i.e., tied to a crime or prosecution) but a security lapse investigation.

The request was submitted to the Justice Department by two inspector generals, reports The New York Times, but as yet no decision has been made as to whether the investigation will take place. The final call will be made by the Obama-appointed Attorney General.

While Clinton insists that the email contained on her servers contained no classified information, a June 29th memo written by Patrick Kennedy, the under secretary of state for management, explained that the private account contained “hundreds of potentially classified emails.” The use of private email for state affairs is both a huge security concern as well as a blow for increased government transparency.

Following campaign-hurting criticism, Clinton said she wished for her email to be made publicity available. Since, the State Department has been wading through 55,000 pages of email, and it’s s-l-o-w-l-y been releasing them. Lending weight to Kennedy’s claims, State Department officials determined that some information in the emails had to be retroactively classified.

Clinton’s fate remains to be seen; the ball’s in the court of the Justice Department.
