FBI probe of Clinton Foundation probe continues as former secretary of state leaves office
An FBI investigation of the former secretary a former U.S. senator from New York is continuing after she left office.
FBI agents have been working on a number of unrelated cases since former President Bill Clinton left office in January.
The former senator has been a leading proponent of a new federal probe of the Clinton Foundation.
Clinton has denied any wrongdoing.
The investigation has been in the works for years and the investigation is continuing, a U.N. official told Reuters on Friday.
A spokesman for the Clinton campaign declined to comment.
FBI agents have searched Clinton’s home and offices since January, according to U.K. news agency the Daily Telegraph.
In April, FBI agents searched Clinton Tower in New York City.
A spokesperson for the office declined to say when the agents went to Clinton’s New York home.
After a week of interviews, FBI officials concluded that there was probable cause to investigate the Clinton family’s business dealings, according a statement to Reuters.
They said they were not looking at the Clinton foundation.
The FBI declined to release a copy of the letter to Clinton from the FBI.
Federal prosecutors in the Eastern District of New York announced in July that they would investigate whether Clinton violated ethics rules by accepting donations from foreign governments.
“This investigation is an important step in our broader investigation into potential violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) by the former president and former Secretary of State,” said James Gagliano, the head of the FBI’s public corruption unit.
Last month, the FBI launched a new probe into whether there was a conflict of interest involving the former chairman of a company Clinton co-founded.
