It looks like President Trump may not have forgotten about that campaign promise after all.
Chants of “Lock Her Up” were key moments of every Trump rally. One of my favorite parts actually.
And perhaps the best moment of any debate was when Trump shot back at Hillary saying “Cause you’d be in jail.” Most people say that was the moment Trump won the election. Here it is if you’d like to relive a perfect 17 seconds:
For a while, it felt like Trump may have forgotten his campaign promise to investigate Hillary Clinton, but perhaps that all is changing.
From the NY Daily News, an investigation has been opened up and it is “ongoing”:
Lock her up … still?
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her aides could lose their still-active security clearances pending the results of a State Department probe into their alleged mishandling of classified info over a private email server, Fox News reported.
The department began its review as part of a longstanding “continuous and ongoing program for oversight of the handling of classified information” after the FBI wrapped its own probe, according to a May 23 State Department letterresponding to inquiries from Sen. Chuck Grassley, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The open review of the debated-to-death email issue, which the department waited to launch “to avoid prejudicing the FBI investigation,” is “ongoing,” the letter said.
And from FoxNews, confirming the newly opened investigation:
The State Department has opened a formal inquiry into whether former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her aides mishandled classified information while she was the nation’s top diplomat, Fox News has learned. Despite being under investigation, Clinton and her staffers still have security clearances to access sensitive government information.
The department’s investigation aims to determine whether Clinton and her closest aides violated government protocols by using her private server to receive, hold and transmit classified and top-secret government documents. The department declined to say when its inquiry began, but it follows the conclusion of the FBI’s probe into the matter, which did not result in any actions being taken against Clinton or any of her aides.
Depending on the outcome of the current State Department inquiry, Clinton and her aides could have their access to sensitive government documents terminated.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, confirmed to Fox News the department’s formal inquiry.
Meanwhile, Grassley’s committee launched its own inquiry into Clinton’s handling of emails, an inquiry that began in March. Grassley cited among his concerns the July 5 statement of former FBI Director James Comey that the agency found Clinton and her staff members were “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.” Grassley also contended there is “evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information…”
During the FBI’s investigation of Clinton’s use of top-secret and classified information on her private server, Comey said there were seven email chains on Clinton’s computer that were classified at the “Top Secret/Special Access Program level.” Another 2,000 emails on her private server were found to have contained information deemed classified now, though not marked classified when sent. In addition, the server also contained 22 top-secret emails deemed too damaging to national security to be released.
