Fear of Espionage Prompted FBI to Investigate Clinton’s Use of Emails

The FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server while she as secretary of state was prompted by fears of espionage.

Vice News obtained two secret letters the FBI sent to the State Department that revealed why an investigation was launched.

The Intelligence Community’s Inspector General feared that Clinton’s e-mails may have been “compromised” and shared with a “foreign power or an agent of a foreign power.”

A Section 811 referral “arises whenever there is a compromise of classified information — for whatever reason,” said Steven Aftergood, director of the Project on Government Secrecy at the Federation of American Scientists. “It could include espionage, but it could also include negligence, inadvertence, or something else…. Section 811 does not assert a violation of criminal law.”
FBI Director James Comey said last month that the bureau uncovered no “direct evidence” that Clinton’s server “was successfully hacked.”
