FBI Source: Probe into Hillary Clinton’s Emails Is ‘Criminal,’ Not Fact-Finding

The FBI’s examination of Hillary Clinton’s unsecured email account is more than a fact-finding mission, the New York Post reports.

“It’s a criminal probe,” the New York Post reports, citing a federal source with knowledge of the investigation.

Since news of the investigation became public, Clinton’s camp has claimed the probe was not criminal and instead just a fact-finding venture to determine if her private email server was secure.

“It’s definitely a criminal probe,” said the source. “I’m not sure why they’re not calling it a criminal probe.

“The DOJ [Department of Justice] and FBI can conduct civil investigations in very limited circumstances,” but that’s not what this is, the source stressed. “In this case, a security violation would lead to criminal charges. Maybe DOJ is trying to protect her campaign.”

The investigation threatens to further undermine Clinton’s run for president.
