The FBI is investigating Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail security after controversy.

The FBI is looking into Hillary Clinton’s email setup. The security arrangements are especially of utmost importance. A Denver technology firm got contacted about the issue. The firm had been responsible for the email account.

Clinton’s lawyer got approached by FBI agents as well, according to The Washington Post. He owns a thumb drive containing crucial emails sent by Hillary while she was Secretary of State.

The FBI's interested in the matter at the Justice Department’s prompting. Intelligence personnel said that many of the emails were not in the government’s possession. They could end up in the wrong hands.

The FBI agents said that Hillary was not blameworthy. It was not her fault. Her lawyer said that he was cooperating with the authorities to set matters right. It was a delicate operation that needs  handling with care.

The Denver company spokesperson did not comment on the whole shebang. The process of investigation has yielded rich information. Clinton installed a private means of linkage that lay beyond government surveillance. This remains a bone of contention in Hillary’s campaign.

The original email set up in Hillary’s New York home got used during her first campaign in 2008. It is meant to replace her husband’s email. Now the FBI knows that several scads of information passed through the email. And most of the info was of a secret and confidential nature.

A spokesperson for Clinton’s campaign refused to address the situation. Hillary has asked for the release of the emails for public viewing. It looks like she has nothing to hide. The controversy surrounding Clinton’s emails started a year ago. Since the government is ignorant about many of her emails, this is cause for concern.

Many erstwhile secretaries of state divulged their emails. Clinton got asked to let her own share of data be public information. But she had deleted a majority of them. This was a problematic issue.

Clinton spoke of how she did a few things that were strange for the sake of convenience. But this let many of her correspondence go under the government radar. This is illegal. Such high level decisions often go unpunished.

The high and mighty leaders have their way in all things. Hillary may not bear the blame for the glitch. Still she is responsible for not letting the government know about it all.
