US State Department Investigators Contacted 130 Officials to make Breakthrough in Clinton Email Case

  • Investigators of the US State Department has reportedly contacted around 130 officials (both current and former) in the last few weeks to probe Hillary Clinton's private email. The Washington Post has reported on Saturday that all the officials (including senior officials and lower-level jobs) who had sent private emails to the former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have been notified that their emails were retroactively classified and are now reportedly potential security violations. Reports say that the Hillary Clinton private email probe has been intensified after a whistleblower complaint alleged that the US President Donald Trump used his official powers to urge the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky probe the business dealings of former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden. Senior State Department officials reportedly said that the Clinton email case was not politically motivated and the probe started even before Donald Trump assumed power. They insisted that they are following standard protocol.
