2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has handed over the private email server used during her time as secretary of state to the FBI.
It follows a long back and forth with the government over what Clinton should make public. At the start, the Clinton organization handed over thousands of emails to the state department, but new top secret emails have forced the FBI to get involved and shut down the operation.
Two top secret emails were found in the private email server, which have been removed from public viewing. The FBI will sort through the rest of the emails with the state department and release them at a later date.
It ends the rather worrying battle between government and Hillary Clinton. This has been a huge burden for the main democratic candidate, who has seen her position drop and pollers claim she is untrustworthy following the email scandal.
Republicans and Democrats have continuously brought up Clinton’s email scandal during the opening months of campaigning.
Even though Clinton is not the only politician to use a private email server while working for the White House, she is the most public outlier. The White House uses its own servers to make sure government emails are checked for viruses, malware and credentials. They publish them on a monthly basis.
Hillary Clinton is still in the lead position for the democratic candidacy, despite the setback making it harder for her to campaign for Republican voters.
Bernie Sanders is starting to rise in the standings, with his focus on healthcare, police reform and economy focus resonating well with democrats.
