Now The FBI Is Looking Into Clinton's Private Email Server

The FBI has contacted Hillary Clinton's lawyer about files Clinton stored on her private email server while she was secretary of state.

Clinton's lawyer, David Kendall, told The Washington Post the FBI has contacted him about a thumb drive he's holding.

That thumb drive, of course, holds copies of some of Clinton's work emails while she was Secretary of State. (Video via U.S. Department of State)

Now, as the Post points out, just because the FBI's involved doesn't mean Clinton did anything wrong. The agency is simply looking into the matter, and Kendall told the paper Clinton's camp is cooperating.

There was some confusion earlier in July as to how involved the Justice Department was getting in Clinton's email issue after The New York Times erroneously reported the former Secretary of State had been subject to a criminal referral.

The inquiries slightly broaden a string of revelations related to Clinton's use of a private email server during her time in office and whether some of those emails contained classified information.
