Time to move on folks...3 years? Seriously? And Benghazi - how many years was that? If a Republican administration, supported by a Republican congress was not able to find any wrong doing....there probably isn't any. Trump is silent on this. Hillary Clinton cleared of mishandling classified information after 3-year email probe, Trump silent A major investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state found no evidence of deliberate mishandling of classified information. The finding by the U.S. State Department, released on Friday by Republican Senator Chuck Grassley's office, follows a three-year investigation, for which Clinton handed over roughly 33,000 emails. Assertions of wrongdoing had been a major cornerstone of President Donald Trump's 2016 election campaign—with repeated chants and demands to "lock up crooked Hillary"—however, Trump made no mention of the findings on Friday. The investigation was launched by Grassley in 2017 when he was chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Grassley remained critical of Clinton's handling of classified information after it was revealed she had been using a private email to conduct official business when she was the top U.S. diplomat from 2009 to 2013. The Iowa Republican pressed on with his investigation despite then-FBI Director James Comey stating in 2016 that he would not recommend any criminal charges. Comey did, however, criticize Clinton's use of a private email server as "extremely careless." The Justice Department's inspector general also said that FBI specialists had not found evidence that the server was hacked. This latest report concluded there was "no persuasive evidence of systemic, deliberate mishandling of classified information."
