The State Department has opened a formal probe into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her aides to determine whether they mishandled classified information with their email practices while serving in government.
The department’s investigation seeks to determine whether Clinton or her aides violated government procedure by using her private email server to send and receive classified information, Fox News reported Tuesday.
Clinton and her top aides still have security clearances to access sensitive information despite being under investigation.
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, confirmed to Fox News the investigation into Clinton and her staff.
