Hillary Clinton’s private email server won’t go away.
Even with the election over, there is still an ongoing investigation by Congress into her conduct.
And one meeting may indicate she is still in serious legal jeopardy.
House Oversight Committee Chair Jason Chaffetz was summoned to the Oval Office for a meeting.
According to The Washington Examiner no oversight issues were discussed:
“House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz had a private meeting with President Trump and White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus in the Oval Office Tuesday, but they did not discuss the Utah Republican’s chief role as a government watchdog.
“Before my bum even hit the chair,” the president said no oversight; you can’t talk about anything that has to do with oversight and I said, ‘fair enough,” Chaffetz said after the 30-minute meeting.
When the two met briefly in Philadelphia last month during Republicans’ annual retreat, Trump gave him the same order, Chaffetz said.”
So what did they discuss?
Chaffetz has said his investigation into Hillary is still ongoing.
NBC News reports Chaffetz declaring:
“Just because there was a political election doesn’t mean it goes away, so of course I am going to continue to pursue that,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told reporters.
Chaffetz called finishing the investigation into Clinton one of his top priorities for the committee and noted the State Department has been “terribly slow and inefficient” in turning over documents forcing this to be dragged out.
“It was potentially one of the largest breaches in security in the history of the State Department. It cannot and should not be repeated ever again,” he said. “There are still open questions that we need to finish up so they won’t happen again.”
And in January, the FBI released 300 pages of documents from the investigation into her conduct.
The documents showed the FBI was skeptical of the State Department’s attempts to hunt around for officials who would be inclined to favorably rule that Hillary’s emails didn’t contain classified information.
Documents also contained information showing State Department official Patrick Kennedy offered a trade in exchange for the FBI marking Hillary’s emails with a lower level of classification.
Critics contend the documents clearly showed the State Department was concerned about Hillary’s emails containing classified information and were desperate to conceal the truth.
Will anyone ever be held accountable for this behavior?
Chaffetz has maintained Hillary isn’t out of the woods yet with his committee.
If nothing is off limits, then Chaffetz is free to pursue his inquiry wherever the facts may lead.
And that is really bad news for Hillary.
