Federal Bureau of Investigation launches new probe into Clinton Foundation

The Hill's John Solomon reported that the officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said "the probe was examining whether the Clintons promised or performed any policy favors in return for contributions to their charitable efforts or whether donors promised to make donations in hopes of government outcomes".

The very existence of such a probe will likely lead to accusations from Democrats that the Republican administration is pursuing old, dead cases to punish political enemies.

The move comes as President Trump has long called for prosecution of Clinton, his rival in the 2016 election, and GOP lawmakers since have echoed his demands for more Clinton investigations as the Russian Federation probe of Trump and his own campaign heats up.

McCabe, who briefly served as acting FBI director following Trump's May firing of James Comey, is expected to retire from the bureau later this year.

At least one witness has been interviewed in recent weeks, according to the news site.

Separately, there are reports that the Justice Department is looking back into Mrs Clinton's use of a private email server while she was America's top diplomat.

By that time, according to the people familiar with the matter, agents were already investigating the Clinton Foundation. In 2016, Justice Department prosecutors rejected a request from FBI agents to expand and intensify the foundation investigation, these people said.

Founded in 1997 by former US President Bill Clinton, the Clinton Foundation has become a multi-billion dollar organisation.

Nick Merrill, Clinton's chief spokesman, slammed the FBI's decision to re-open the case as "disgraceful", contending it is a distraction from collusion allegations facing Trump. It began with a now long-debunked project spearheaded by Steve Bannon during the presidential campaign. "It continues with (Attorney General) Jeff Sessions doing Trump's bidding by heeding his calls to meddle with a department that is supposed to function independently".

President Donald Trump has multiple times called for further investigations into Hillary Clinton, who he ran against in the 2016 presidential election.
