A month ago, Trump took a direct shot (one of many, actually) at his own “Justice” Department for not following up on what many in the country believe to be a fraudulent investigation by the FBI that cleared Hillary Clinton of crimes far greater than those which Special Counsel Mueller has alleged against Trump allies like Michael Flynn.

Alas, according to an exclusive report from the Daily Beast, citing sources close to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Hillary’s email problems may be just getting started as the DOJ has allegedly decided to “take a fresh look” at the FBI’s investigation of her private server.

Justice Department officials are taking a fresh look at Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state, The Daily Beast has learned.

An ally of Attorney General Jeff Sessions who is familiar with the thinking at the Justice Department’s Washington headquarters described it as an effort to gather new details on how Clinton and her aides handled classified material. 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. The Sessions ally also said officials have questions about immunity agreements that Clinton aides may have made.

Stephen Boyd, who heads the Justice Department’s Office of Legislative Affairs, appeared to hint at the department’s interest in Clinton’s emails in a letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte on Nov. 13. In the letter, Boyd wrote that that Sessions “directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate certain issues” the chairman was concerned about. He also wrote that those prosecutors would “make recommendations as to whether any matters not currently under investigation should be opened,” and that they would sen dthose recommendations directly to the attorney general and his top deputy, Rod Rosenstein.

A spokesperson for the Justice Department refused to confirm or deny the story from the Daily Beast.
