Well this is a turn of events that I wasn’t expecting. The AP is reporting that the State Department has reopened a probe into how Hillary and her top aides handled classified information:
State Department reopens internal probe into handling of classified information by Clinton, aides. https://t.co/pEXLfOMDnp

The State Department is reopening an internal investigation of possible mishandling of classified information by Hillary Clinton and top aides.
Spokesman John Kirby says the emails probe is restarting now that the Justice Department isn’t pursuing a criminal prosecution. The State Department suspended its review in April to avoid interfering with the FBI’s inquiry.
Kirby set no deadline for the investigation’s completion.
But Kirby said this week former officials can still face “administrative sanctions.” The most serious is loss of security clearances, which could complicate Clinton’s naming of a national security team if she becomes president.
Oh okay since criminal proceedings are done, they don’t mind giving her a slap on the hand so that it doesn’t look like she’s totally getting away with it. Of course.
Anything they do to her will probably be very short term and will in no way impede her if she wins the presidency next year.
Just kabuki theater.
