FBI begins investigating security of Hillary Clinton’s private email server and safety of its classified information, report says

The FBI has begun looking into the security of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s private email correspondence, according to a report.

Federal investigators contacted the Denver-based company Platte River Networks, which helped manage the former Secretary of State’s personal system, according to the Washington Post.

Some government officials have said that they are worried that hundreds of emails that passed through Clinton’s service contained classified information from her time in the State Department and that the info was possibly compromised.

The FBI also made contact with Clinton’s lawyer David Kendall, who confirmed contact with the FBI, about a thumb drive with copies of the former Secretary’s work emails.
