Two Inspector Generals request criminal investigation of Clinton email server

New York TimesTwo inspectors general have asked the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation into whether sensitive government information was mishandled in connection with the personal email account Hillary Rodham Clinton used as secretary of state, senior government officials said Thursday.

Given that Clinton was Secretary of State and used this unusual email arrangement as her only email address during that time, it's pretty much inconceivable that nothing classified or national-security-sensitive was ever sent to or by her using that address. The question will be whether there is political will to pursue the investigation (which really boils down to whether Obama is sufficiently opposed to Hillary following him as President to kneecap her), and if so, whether mishandling of those emails can be proven given that Clinton has presumably shredded the server by now.

Sharyl Attkisson has more on the bias inherent in the system.

The investigation conducted by the Intelligence IG was not very difficult, finding four classified emails after reviewing only 40 (with tens of thousands remaining):
The HillThe four emails “were classified when they were sent and are classified now,” Andrea Williams, a spokeswoman for the inspector general, told the newspaper. The watchdog office has reviewed only 40 emails from Clinton’s server, out of a total of more than 30,000 she sent and received while helming the Department of State.

The Wall Street Journal obtained the whole report, if you happen to be a subscriber. The New York Times has already been caught rewriting their article to use the passive voice at the Clinton's request.
