State Department to restart internal review of Clinton's email use

The U.S. Department of State will restart its internal investigation into former chief Hillary Clinton's email use, now that Justice officials have declined to pursue charges against the Democratic presidential candidate.

"Given the Department of Justice has now made its announcement, the State Department intends to conduct its internal review," spokesman John Kirby said in a statement Thursday.

  • The department had been conducting its own investigation into the matter but suspended it to avoid interfering with the Justice Department's review.

U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said earlier this week that her department has opted not to file charges against Clinton for using a private email server while she was President Barack Obama's secretary of state.

FBI Director James Comey, who answered questions related to the investigation in Congress Thursday, made the recommendation to Lynch that Clinton face no charges.

A State Department review could potentially lead to certain sanctions against Clinton, including disciplinary action.

"I cannot provide specific information about the Department's review, including what information we are evaluating," Kirby said. "Our goal will be to be as transparent as possible about our results, while complying with our various legal obligations."
