The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has expanded its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state, according to a report.
The ongoing investigation is now focused on determining whether the possible “intersection” of Clinton Foundation affairs and State Department business may have violated public corruption laws, three intelligence sources told FOX News on condition of anonymity.
Critics say that the foundation’s donors wielded influence over Clinton while she was in the State Department and that they benefited from their contacts inside the administration.
“The agents are investigating the possible intersection of Clinton Foundation donations, the dispensation of State Department contracts and whether regular processes were followed,” one source said.
Another intelligence sources told the Fox News that the FBI is trying to make sure a prosecution is pursued against Clinton because “many previous public corruption cases have been made and successfully prosecuted with much less evidence than what is emerging in this investigation.”
FBI director James Comey has said that his bureau is taking the investigation very seriously and politics will not play a factor in it.
The new venue of probe is in addition to the focus of the ongoing investigation into the classified information shared in Clinton’s emails.
The State Department has recently released another batch of 5,500 pages of Clinton’s personal emails from her time as secretary of state, raising the total pages released so far to over 40,000.
Clinton’s decision to use a private server potentially put thousands of pages of State Department emails at risk, but it also shielded her correspondence from congressional and Freedom of Information Act requests.
