Hours following the Congressional hearing in regards to the decision not to charge presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, the State Department announced they will be reopening the investigation of Clinton as well as her top aids.
In the recent hearing, the Congress grilled FBI director James Comey about Clinton’s testimony under oath, clearly believing Clinton to have perjured herself. Associated Press released a Tweet at 6:56 PM EST in regards to the reopening of the Hillary Clinton investigation regarding the handling of classified information.

The majority of Clinton’s top advisors left after her position as secretary of state came to an end in 2013, yet State Department Spokesman John Kirby stated that former officials can still face “administrative sanctions.”
The investigation will include Clinton herself, but will focus as well on confidants Cheryl Mills, Jake Sullivan and Huma Abedin.
