DOJ Is Taking Another Gander Into Hillary Clinton's Use Of A Private Email Server

During her time as Secretary of State, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton used a private email server for reasons that remain unclear. There have long been concerns that her use of technology that could be ripe for the picking from outside hackers essentially exposed classified information - or at the very least severely compromised the handling of it.

An endless amount of mental capital has been devoted to finding out exactly why Clinton did what she did, as well as whether or not her actions were illegal and prosecutable.

In addition to the aforementioned mental capital, an ungodly amount of resources have been devoted towards determining if there is in fact anything to see here. Actual information on whether or not that is the case has been relatively scant, but there has been a tremendous amount of speculation about it.

As such, the prevailing narrative suggests that Clinton’s actions have been swept under the rug, but questions remain about how much damage was actually done by her use of the server, as well as how much of that speculation is hyperbole.

In July 2016, then-FBI director James Comey attempted to put the matter to rest once and for all, but he wound up creating even more questions. Comey essentially exonerated Clinton, but he did slap her on the wrist during an awkward press conference in which he indicated she was awfully careless about things.

Curiously, he would reopen the investigation just before the 2016 presidential election before abruptly closing it again without providing any more clarity on things. Fast forward to today, and we still have no actual answers on the scandal itself, but that may finally change.

As the Blaze shares, reports indicate that the Department of Justice is reopening its investigation into the matter. President Donald Trump has called for that to happen a number of times, and there’s a school of thought that suggests the DoJ’s renewed interest is a direct result of that.

“Many people in our Country are asking what the ‘Justice’ Department is going to do about the fact that totally Crooked Hillary, AFTER receiving a subpoena from the United States Congress, deleted and ‘acid washed’ 33,000 Emails? No justice!” the president tweeted in early December.

MSNBC analyst Matthew Miller is among those that have taken umbrage with the president’s seeming encouragement to the DoJ.

“If the White House asks you to look into it... The answer is to tell the White House to stay out of investigations and prosecutions, especially when it comes to your political opponents,” he said.

So are we actually going to get crystal clear answers on the whole thing this time around? Will anyone that was in fact negligent actually be held accountable?

Answers to both of those questions remain unclear. In the current political climate, any attempts to open up an investigation into Clinton will immediately be viewed as an attempt to draw attention away from the never-ending investigation being conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Either way, the Clinton email server issue is a gigantic mess. There’s a ton of confusion about the whole thing, as well as a popular belief that Clinton is being held above the law for her careless actions. We’ll patiently wait and see how this all plays out, but there’s a really good chance there will be a ton of speculation about it along the way.
