Report: Criminal inquiry requested over Clinton’s email – CNNPolitics.com … – CNN

(CNN)A criminal investigation could be opened in relation to the personal email account that Hillary Clinton used during her time as secretary of state, according to a New York Times report late Thursday.

Inspectors general for the State Department and the intelligence agencies have asked the Justice Department to open an investigation into whether sensitive government information was mishandled in connection with Clinton’s account, The Times reported, citing senior government officials.

The inspectors general are independent officials who conduct audits, investigations and inspections in the agencies for which they’re responsible.

Clinton’s use of the personal account for official business instead of a State Department one stirred up a political storm after news of it emerged in March.

Clinton has denied handling classified material on account

The request for the Justice Department investigation comes after a June 29 memo from the inspectors general that said Clinton’s private account held “hundreds of potentially classified emails,” The Times reported.
