aides handled classified material.
Comey in July 2016 said Clinton's use of a private email server was "careless" but said Clinton and her staff engaged in no "intentional misconduct", and announced that the Federal Bureau of Investigation would not recommend criminal charges against her.
The new probe was prompted by President Trump's repeated calls on Twitter and elsewhere for another FBI investigation into "Crooked Hillary", the source said.
The Department of Justice has made a decision to review again Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server and her handling of classified information while secretary of state, the Daily Beast is reporting.
"The Justice Department is supposed to operate independently of the White House, and even if this is just a perfunctory step that they're taking to try to appease the president, that in and of itself is an abuse of the DOJ authority", Fallon said. "No justice!" Trump tweeted early last month in a typical barb aimed at his former opponent. Clinton's private e-mail server is also reportedly being looked at, at least to some degree, as DOJ officials are said to be exploring whether the previous email investigation left anything unresolved.
"Because you'd be in jail", Trump fired back.

Last Friday, the State Department released a batch of almost 2,800 work-related documents from the email account of Huma Abedin, who served as the deputy chief of staff to Hillary Clinton.
The emails were released in response to a 2015 lawsuit, filed by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch against the State Department after it failed to respond to a Freedom of Information request (FOIA) seeking access to "all emails of official State Department business received or sent by former Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin from January 1, 2009 through February 1, 2013 using a non-'state.gov' email address".
