Hillary Clinton reluctantly turns over private server to FBI
Hillary Clinton on Wednesday turned over her private email server used during her service as secretary of State to the Department of Justice, after months of demands from Trey Gowdy and fellow Republicans that she turn over the server. Her decision comes as the FBI begins an investigation into the security of the classified materials sent via her private email account. A federal official confirmed last week that the FBI had begun a review of the security of Clinton’s private email server after a referral last month to the Justice Department from the inspector general overseeing the government’s intelligence community. The inspector general expressed concern about a “potential compromise of classified information.”
Republicans have expressed concerns about potential security risks resulting from Clinton’s use of a private email server since the story broke in March. Concerns have also been raised that Clinton could have used the private account to bury any damaging emails. The development in the FBI inquiry came the same day that a top intelligence official whose office has been reviewing some of Clinton’s e-mails informed congressional leaders that top-secret information had been contained in two e-mails that traveled across the server.
