FBI's deputy director to retire in early 2018, Trump reacts

Report Department of Justice reopens investigation into Hillary’s email server

Officials' questions include how much classified information was sent over Clinton's server; who put that information into an unclassified environment, and how; and which investigators knew about these matters and when. Republicans on the committee say McCabe outlined some irregularities that suggest the outcome of the investigation was rigged in Clinton's favor.

The Justice Department is taking another look at Hillary Clinton's private email server, according to a report. During the investigation, the FBI recovered some work emails which had not been turned over to the State Department by Clinton.

Some observers believe that Mueller, as part of his investigation, may be looking into whether Trump obstructed justice in the firing of former FBI Director James Comey in a bid to forestall his inquiries into the behavior and contacts with Russians of his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

"How can FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, the man in charge, along with leakin' James Comey, of the Phony Hillary Clinton investigation (including her 33,000 illegally deleted emails) be given $700,000 for wife's campaign by Clinton Puppets during investigation?"

But Trump's tweet is incorrect. A large number of emails that Clinton did not disclose during her tenure were revealed during the hearing of the lawsuit.

Republicans charge that an anti-Trump bias exists in the bureau's ranks, citing the campaign donations to McCabe's wife and, more recently, the release of hundreds of text messages between FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday appeared to suggest that Huma Abedin, a former top aide to Hillary Clinton, should face jail time, days after the State Department posted emails found on her estranged husband's computer that included confidential government information.

She was at the center of a political storm in 2016 after the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced that it was reopening its probe into Clinton's email scandal after they found pertinent emails related to the case on a laptop shared by Abedin and her estranged husband Anthony Weiner.

Tuesday's outburst by the President also sheds new light into his apparent belief in, or willingness to perpetrate, the idea for political reasons that there is a "deep state" - a secret cabal of government and intelligence officials conspiring against him and his presidency.

Emails previously revealed Abedin gave foreign leaders and activists special access to Clinton when she was secretary of state after they donated to the congenitally corrupt Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation. The FBI had also found classified emails on Anthony Weiner's laptop.

But there was no indication that Abedin "had a sense that what she was doing was in violation of the law", Comey added, and investigators couldn't prove any sort of criminal intent.
