Hillary's long hot summer: State Dept reopens email probe

Trump Autumn is coming. However, Hillary is having the summer from hell. I imagine she thought all of her problems would be gone once the Justice Department announced that it would not pursue criminal charges against her.

But there is a new crisis for HRC closer to home, or rather, her former home.

From AP:
The State Department is reopening an internal investigation of possible mishandling of classified information by Hillary Clinton and top aides, officials told The Associated Press on Thursday.

Although the former secretary of state's closest confidants have left the agency, they could still face punishment. The most serious is the loss of security clearances, which could complicate her aides' hopes of securing top positions on her national security team if she becomes president.

The State Department started its review in January after declaring 22 emails from Clinton's private server to be "top secret." It was suspended in April so as not to interfere with the FBI's inquiry. State Department spokesman John Kirby said the probe is restarting after the Justice Department's announcement Wednesday that it won't bring any criminal charges.

"We will aim to be as expeditious as possible, but we will not put artificial deadlines on the process," Kirby said. "Our goal will be to be as transparent as possible about our results, while complying with our various legal obligations."
If Obama nominated Clinton for secretary of state again, she would not get confirmed by Congress. Hillary has a unique plan to avoid criminal prosecution: getting elected president.

But a wise American electorate should know what to do.
