Twitter exploded with the announcement that the DOJ is taking a “fresh look” at the Hillary email case…We have three words: LOCK HER UP!
Lefty publication The Daily Beast reports:
Justice Department officials are taking a fresh look at Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she served as secretary of State, The Daily Beast has learned.
An ally of Attorney General Jeff Sessions who is familiar with the thinking at the Justice Department’s Washington headquarters described it as an effort to gather new details on how Clinton and her aides handled classified material. Officials’ questions include how much classified information was sent over Clinton’s server; who put that information into an unclassified environment, and how; and which investigators knew about these matters and when. The Sessions ally also said officials have questions about immunity agreements that Clinton aides may have made.
A former senior DOJ official familiar with department leadership’s thinking said officials there are acutely aware of demands from President Donald Trump that they look into Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of State—and that they lock up her top aide, Huma Abedin.

“The president’s ongoing campaign to tear down the wall between the Justice Department and the White House seems to be working,” he said.
“If the White House asks you to look into it, the answer is not to look into it for the sake of looking into it,” he continued. “The answer is to tell the White House to stay out of investigations and prosecutions, especially when it comes to your political opponents. You’re just encouraging a bully. If you encourage him to do that, he’ll just keep bullying you.”
KURT EICHENWALD CALLED THE U.S. A “BANANA REPUBLIC” BECAUSE OF THE “FRESH LOOK” AT CLINTON:
1. Trump @POTUS has now committed, beyond any doubt, an offense of such gross magnitude that impeachment is not only called for, it is essential for preservation of the Republic. In response to Trump's incessant demands, @TheJusticeDept has now, according to the Daily Beast…
