If Hillary Clinton thought her election loss was the end of her troubles, she has another thing coming.
At the inauguration, Congressman Jason Chaffetz – who chairs the House Oversight Committee – made a major announcement.
And it was really bad news for Hillary Clinton.
Chaffetz posted a photo to his Instagram account announcing that the investigation into Hillary Clinton will continue.
“Congressman Jason Chaffetz, head of the House Oversight Committee, published a photo of himself greeting losing Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton at Friday’s inauguration ceremony, teasing, “the investigation continues,” with no other comment.
“So pleased she is not the President,” Chaffetz wrote on Instagram, where he posted the photo. “I thanked her for her service and wished her luck. The investigation continues.”
As House Oversight chairman, Chaffetz played a significant role in investigating Clinton following the revelation that she had used an unsecured private email server to save classified documents she came into contact with in her capacity as Secretary of State. Chaffetz has personally demanded an FBI investigation into Clinton, arguing that Clinton’s claim she was unaware of her breach of security protocol did not match the evidence the FBI had initially uncovered. Chaffetz was extremely critical of FBI director James Comey’s decision not to prosecute Clinton for her actions, and vowed to continue the investigation following Clinton’s defeat in the 2016 presidential election.”
Chaffetz’s post confirms the previous statement he made in the beginning of January that the inquiry into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal would continue.
“House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz said Monday he will continue to investigate Hillary Clinton’s use of a primary email server while leading the State Department, but claimed he “won’t be a cheerleader” for President-elect Donald Trump.
“Just because there was a political election doesn’t mean it goes away,” the Utah Republican said of the Clinton investigation.
He called the classified emails that surfaced on the server “the largest breach of security in the history of the State Department.”
This isn’t the only investigation the Clinton’s are facing.
The FBI’s New York field office is also continuing their probe into the Clinton Foundation.
The Daily Caller reports:
“Officials at FBI headquarters instructed its New York field office to continue its corruption investigation into the Clinton Foundation following the election of Republican candidate Donald Trump, according to a former senior law enforcement official.
The instructions ordered agents to “go forward” with their ongoing inquiry into the Clinton Foundation which is focusing on issues of corruption and money laundering, according to the source.
“There were no instructions to shut it down, to discontinue or to stand down on the investigation, but to continue its work,” the former official told the Daily Caller News Foundation in an interview.
He said he received this information about a week ago and that the order originated from the bureau’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. well after the November 8 election. He did not know who at FBI Headquarters issued the order.”
