The results of the State Department's years-long probe into Hilary Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state were made public on Friday.
The report, which was released by the office of Republican Senator Chuck Grassley, found no evidence of deliberate mishandling of classified information.
The investigation centered on whether Clinton jeopardized classified information by using a private server rather than a government one.
The answer: the use did increase the risk of hacking, but there was "no persuasive evidence of systemic, deliberate mishandling of classified information." President Trump used the email controversy to his advantage during the 2016 campaign, suggesting Clinton used the private server in order to hide something.
SOUNDBITE (ENGLISH) THEN REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE DONALD TRUMP, SAYING: "Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing." As part of the State Department, nearly 600 security protocol violations were uncovered, but none of the emails were marked as classified at the time they were sent and the State Department said "individuals interviews were aware of security poliices and did their best to implement them in their operations."
