The US government has expanded its investigation into the email affair of the former foreign minister and democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. In recent weeks, the State Department investigators have contacted up to 130 officials for emails sent years ago, the Washington Post said on Saturday.

In almost all cases, it was about emails that were sent to Clinton’s inadequately protected e-mail account or got there in a roundabout way. The State Department investigators had begun the inquiry almost eighteen months ago, after these efforts were temporarily paralyzed, they had been strengthened again in August last year, the Washington Post reported, citing current and former government officials.

“It has nothing to do with who is in the White House”, a senior US State Department official said, referring to President Donald Trump who is a bitter opponent of Clinton. The fact that inquiries about the e-mail affair came only now has to do with the fact that it took three and a half years to review the millions of e-mails.

Keeping the Hillary Clinton’s e-mail topic alive

However, a former government official said the investigation was a strategy for Trump’s Republicans to keep the Clinton e-mail topic alive. In addition, it offers them the opportunity to stain a bunch of democrats in foreign policy. However, prosecution does not seem to threaten those affected, the Washington Post wrote.

As Secretary of State, Clinton had not used sufficiently secured private e-mail servers. The affair was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The then director James Comey has made a sharp complaint of Hillary for extremely careless behavior, but saw no evidence of criminally relevant misconduct.

Trump is under pressure

Nevertheless, Trump demanded in the election campaign, to put Clinton behind bars and invented for her the nickname fraudulent Hillary. Clinton recently blamed her defeat in the 2016 presidential election on the fact that former FBI head Comey had launched another investigation into the email affair just before the election day.

Trump is currently under pressure for revelations over a telephone conversation with Ukrainian head of state Volodymyr Zelensky. The American president is suspected of abuse of office because he demanded in the phone call of late July investigations by the Ukrainian authorities against the Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
