    Aides of former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have been questioned by the FBI regarding her use of a private email server for work-related matters, local media reported on Thursday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — FBI authorities interviewed closest advisers, including Huma Abedin, CNN reported citing officials briefed on the investigation. However, the date for Clinton’s questioning has not been set yet.

    On Wednesday, Federal District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan issued an order saying that Clinton may be asked to testify on the nature of her personal server.

    The Democratic party front-runner has come under intense scrutiny for using a personal server and email account for official purposes during her tenure as top US diplomat from 2009 to 2013.

    The investigation into the matter has found that Clinton shared more than 100 emails about highly classified US government programs and other sensitive information via her unsecured communications contrary to established rules.
