WASHINGTON D.C. — The Justice Department is investigating Hillary Clinton again. Law-enforcement officials reported Thursday that the department has launched a new inquiry into allegations that the Clinton Foundation engaged in illegal activities, including "pay-to-play" political deal-making and misuse of tax-exempt assets, while Clinton was secretary of state. It will also reexamine issues surrounding Clinton's use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state, they said.

The sources said that FBI agents in Little Rock, Ark., have interviewed at least one unnamed source in the last month and will interview others in months to come. Conservative news organizations have suggested for years that certain foreign donors who gave large contributions to the foundation received undue influence over the Obama-era State Department, which Clinton was overseeing as then-secretary of state, in return. Several FBI offices gathered information about the foundation for more than a year without filing any charges.

This year, several GOP congressional representatives urged Sessions to appoint a special counsel to revisit legal issues surrounding the Clintons, but Sessions testified recently there was not yet enough evidence for it. Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said Friday that the reopening of the case now is sheer Republican partisanship attempting to further antagonize Trump's defeated rival.

"Let's call this what it is: a sham," Merrill said Friday. "This is a philanthropy that does life-changing work, which Republicans have tried to turn into a political football."

Merill blamed Trump's former advisor Stephen Bannon, whom he said "spearheaded" attempts to circulate false rumors about the foundation. He also called out current Attorney-General Jeff Sessions, whom he said is "doing Trump's bidding by heeding his calls to meddle with a department that is supposed to function independently."
