The Federal Bureau of Investigations probe into Hillary Clinton’s email account and her use of the private server and other devices during her four years as secretary of state has now been labeled as criminal, according to a federal source.
A federal source close to the investigation told The New York Post
“It’s definitely a criminal probe. “I’m not sure why they’re not calling it a criminal probe.”
The source went on to comment that “The DOJ (Department of Justice) and FBI can conduct civil investigations in very limited circumstances,” but that’s not what this is.
“In this case, a security violation would lead to criminal charges. Maybe DOJ is trying to protect her campaign.”
The FBI has also been in contact with David Kendall, Clinton’s lawyer, to ask about a drive that contained emails she sent during her time as secretary of state. “The government is seeking assurance about the storage of those materials. We are actively cooperating,” said Kendall in a statement.
