Justice Department Probes FBI Handling of Clinton Emails

The FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email practices is under scrutiny by the Justice Department, according to CNN.

The television network reported that officials are looking into how FBI Director James Comey and other bureau officials conducted the examination of messages Clinton sent and received on a private server while she was secretary of state.

The Democratic presidential nominee’s campaign and party leaders have accused Comey of politicizing the probe. Just 11 days before the election, he announced that agents were combing through Clinton-related emails on computer devices that the candidate’s long-time top aide, Huma Abedin, used. Two days before voters went to the polls, Comey told reporters that the investigation was closed because the bureau did not find anything illegal. However, Democrats cried foul, claiming the director had already harmed Clinton’s White House bid.

According to Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz, his agency is investigating the FBI at the request of various congressional lawmakers as well as voters. Aides to Horowitz told CNN that the probe will focus on whether Comey violated federal policies, if Justice Department or FBI personnel wrongly made public secret government information, and whether the FBI should face sanctions for publicizing particular requests for documents under the Freedom of Information Act just days before the election.
