The FBI is investigating the security of Hillary Clinton's private email server (video below).
Two unidentified government officials claim the feds contacted Platte River Networks in Denver, Colorado, to check the email setup, reports The Washington Post.
The officials say Clinton is not being investigated for doing anything wrong.
Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall, was questioned by the FBI about a flash drive that he had, which contains emails that were sent by Clinton while she served as secretary of state in the Obama administration.
“The government is seeking assurance about the storage of those materials," Kendall told The Washington Post. "We are actively cooperating.”
Platte River Networks' attorney and the U.S. Justice Department officials declined to comment.
CBS News reported this morning that the U.S. Justice Department sampled 40 emails of some 30,000 emails provided by Clinton from her private server. Justice officials found that four emails contained classified information, so officials now want to see if there are others.
Nick Merrill, a spokesman for Clinton’s campaign, said the Democratic candidate, “did not send nor receive any emails that were marked classified at the time. We want to ensure that appropriate procedures are followed as these emails are reviewed while not unduly delaying the release of her emails. We want that to happen as quickly and as transparently as possible.”
Several Republican candidates for president and/or their staffs have also used private email addresses or servers.
