DOJ Will Take a Second Look at How DOJ and FBI Handled Clinton Email Investigation

First time's the charm.

Because it wasn't really investigated before, was it?

Classified documents among newly released Huma emails found on Weiner's laptop The Trump administration is launching another probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state, a new report said Thursday.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions hopes to uncover new details on how Clinton and her aides handled classified material, The Daily Beast reported, citing a source close to the former Alabama senator.

"It's wrong and dangerous to weaponize the DOJ into a political weapon," now shriek the people who got the FBI to pay Russians for a bogus dossier and then contrived a special prosecutor for a political opponent.

And that's not all -- apparently Sessions has also ordered another look (really the first look, again) into pay-for-play allegations about the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One.

The Justice Department has launched a new inquiry into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in any pay-to-play politics or other illegal activities while Hillary Clinton served as secretary of State, law enforcement officials and a witness tells The Hill.

FBI agents from Little Rock, Ark., where the foundation was started, have taken the lead in the investigation and have interviewed at least one witness in the last month, and law enforcement officials said additional activities are expected in the coming weeks.

The officials, who spoke only on condition of anonymity, said the probe is examining whether the Clintons promised or performed any policy favors in return for largesse to their charitable efforts or whether donors made commitments of donations in hopes of securing government outcomes.


The probe may also examine whether any tax-exempt assets were converted for personal or political use and whether the foundation complied with applicable tax laws, the officials said.

One witness recently interviewed by the FBI described the session to The Hill as "extremely professional and unquestionably thorough" and focused on questions about whether donors to Clinton charitable efforts received any favorable treatment from the Obama administration on a policy decision previously highlighted in media reports.

Oh, and of course this was going on as this news came out:
