The Justice Department’s internal watchdog has been scrutinizing why former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe seemingly delayed an investigation of emails related to Hillary Clinton’s personal server in the final weeks of the 2016 campaign, The Washington Post reported Tuesday.
In the fall of 2016, FBI agents discovered thousands of work emails sent to Weiner’s laptop by his wife, Huma Abedin, while investigating Weiner for explicit messages he sent to a teenage girl. On Oct. 28, FBI Director James Comey wrote a letter to Congress informing them that he was reopening the Clinton email investigation to determine whether the messages found on Weiner’s laptop contained new evidence in the case.
A week after his initial letter, Comey informed Congress that the emails on Weiner’s laptop had not changed the bureau’s decision not to charge Clinton in the email investigation. However, the conservative group Judicial Watch has said that the FBI found at least 18 emails that contained classified information.
