'Reports also show the political leadership at the Department of Justice is trying to protect Hillary Clinton, and is interfering with the FBI's criminal investigation.' The attorney general came under scrutiny over the summer as the FBI finished its review of Hillary Clinton's emails and home brew server for allowing Bill Clinton to board her plane in Phoenix, Arizona. Another DOJ official with longstanding ties to Podesta - he was the former Bill Clinton chief of staff's lawyer during the Monica Lewinsky scandal - was caught in Wikileaks emails giving his friend a 'heads up' on a congressional hearing on Clinton's server. Trey Gowdy, chairman of the House's Benghazi committee, told Fox he has 'many differences' with the Justice Department official, but he isn't worried about a conflict of interest.
The FBI's investigation into the Clinton Foundation is just one of five its pursuing that directly or indirectly involves former President Bill Clinton and his wife, the Democratic nominee for the White House.
It then gave 0,000 to the wife of the now FBI deputy director for her own political ambitions Who is he: Currently Democratic governor of Virginia.
Has previously been prolific Clinton fundraiser and chairman of the Democratic National Committee, and chairman of Hillary's failed 2008 run for the White House.
Mc Auliffe was a board member of the Clinton Foundation from at least 2004, so he will surely be caught up in investigations conducted by the FBI's Washington DC field office into whether it was used as a front for influence-peddling.
That political action committee then went on to fund another campaign - that of Dr Jill Mc Cabe, whose husband Mark is currently the deputy director of the FBI.
A probe of Anthony Weiner's sexts to a 15-year-old led the FBI to stumble upon new emails from his estranged wife Huma Abedin's account that linked back to the original, Clinton classified information review.
Comey said last week that he authorized agents to reconsider that case as it reviews the recently discovered emails.
Who is she: Currently vice-chair of the Clinton campaign she was has worked with Clinton for 21 years, since she was 19, as among other things, intern, 'body woman', chief of staff and senior adviser.But if the search finds new evidence of breaking laws about the handling of classified material, there is nothing to stop a prosecution of Abedin - or anyone else. Her overlapping series of roles while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State has been unmasked by emails published either as a result of lawsuits against the State Department, or hacked from John Podesta's account.It was also revealed that while she was at the State Department where she was Clinton's gatekeeper, Abedin received emails from Doug Band - Bill Clinton's right-hand man at the Clinton Foundation - asking for help and access for 'friends' or 'friend of ours'.He was the assistant FBI director when Jill Mc Cabe was running for state senator in Virginia.The PAC controlled by Mc Auliffe, which had received money from Clinton Foundation donors, gave Jill Mc Cabe more than 0,000, prompting her husband to stand back from the Clinton Foundation investigation.
