‘The Story’ Exclusive: Rosenstein mum on re-opening Clinton email investigation
JULY 19, 2017
Rosenstein also declined to comment on whether he had reexamined the investigation while deliberating whether to fire Comey, nor would he say whether any Justice Department resources were devoted to the question of re-opening the investigation.
Later this week, a federal court will hold a hearing in a lawsuit from the conservative group Judicial Watch seeking emails sent or received by Clinton during her tenure as Secretary of State. The group says that the State Department has been “slow-rolling” the release of Clinton’s emails from her tenure as America’s top diplomat, and claims that the messages and other records will not be fully available until 2020.
