Comey shames Republican silence on Trump's attacks against Justice Dept and Federal Bureau of Investigation

FBI Director James Comey looks on during the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence hearing on Russian actions during the 2016 election campaign on Capitol Hill in Washington DC

At 8:45 PM the Hill reported that the Department of Justice was opening an investigation into the Clinton Foundation. Both have previously denied the allegations of trading government policy decisions for donations.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions hopes to uncover new details on how Clinton and her aides handled classified material, The Daily Beast reported, citing a source close to the former Alabama senator.

How much classified information passed through Clinton's private server?

Donald Trump has made his feelings on the Hillary Clinton email scandal abundantly clear, leading chants of "lock her up" at almost every one of his presidential campaign rallies and directly telling Clinton that she would be put in jail during a heated exchange at one of the 2016 presidential debates. "No justice!" he tweeted last month.

At least 18 classified emails from an account belonging to Huma Abedin have been found by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on the top Hillary Clinton aide's estranged husband Anthony Weiner's laptop, a conservative group claims.

"Because you'd be in jail", Trump fired back. Remember sailors pictures on submarine?

"These are classified records that James Comey and his colleagues. knew were on the Weiner laptop, but didn't take seriously enough to pursue criminal charges against Abedin or Clinton for allowing this egregious abuse of trust that the American people placed in them", he said on Fox News's "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Thursday. But Hillary Clinton has cited the controversy surrounding Comey's October 28 letter announcing that he was reopening the investigation as politically damaging and detrimental to her presidential bid.

What, if any, immunity agreements Clinton aides struck?

The emails were released in response to a 2015 lawsuit, filed by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch against the State Department after it failed to respond to a Freedom of Information request (FOIA) seeking access to "all emails of official State Department business received or sent by former Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin from January 1, 2009 through February 1, 2013 using a non-'state.gov' email address".
