Now that Hillary is off scot-free, FBI does massive email dump to State Department

With Hillary Clinton in the clear, the FBI handed over to the State Department “thousands of documents” it compiled in its investigation into the former secretary of state’s use of a private email server.

The FBI is planning to give even more documents on Aug. 5 as the State Department looks over them in its own internal investigation to determine which are personal and which are “agency records,” CNN reported.

The department has not said if it will make all of the emails public.

“Just as we appropriately processed the material turned over to the Department by former Secretary Clinton, we will appropriately and with due diligence process any additional material we receive from the FBI to identify work-related agency records and make them available to the public consistent with our legal obligations,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said.

Clinton, now the Democrat’s presidential nominee, avoided being charged with a crime, but was publicly scolded by FBI Director James Comey for being “extremely careless” with classified information.

The first set of emails given to the State Department includes the majority of Clinton’s emails, while the next batch will include other documents and emails of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin, according to CNN.
