Ever since she lost the presidential election to Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton has been trying to plot behind the scenes to get him impeached. Unfortunately for Clinton, however, her efforts just backfired in a huge way.
Daily Mail reported that the State Department has opened a formal investigation into Clinton and her aides over the possible mishandling of classified information. Clinton and her staffers all still have security clearances which could be revoked depending on the outcome of the investigation.
The probe will look into whether Clinton and her team violated government rules with her use of a private email server during her time as Secretary of State. The inquiry was confirmed by Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa.
“Due to privacy considerations, the Department cannot provide any information regarding any current or former employees’ security clearance or access to classified information,” a spokesman for the State Department said.
As usual, Clinton tried to play the victim and act as if the government is out to get her.
“Nothing’s been more thoroughly dissected. It’s over. Case closed. Literally,” said Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill.
This came weeks after Grassley launched an investigation into whether Clinton meddled in a Bangladeshi corruption probe to help a Clinton Foundation donor during her time as the U.S.’s top diplomat.
“This new evidence of pay-to-play and special treatment reinforces the appearance that donations to the Clinton Foundation resulted in favorable treatment by Secretary Clinton’s State Department,” Grassley said.
