Last Friday, Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey told senior congressional members in a letter that the FBI had found additional emails relevant to its probe of Clinton’s use, as US secretary of state from 2009 to 2013, of a non-government email server that was installed in her home.
The investigation was reopened after a cache of 650,000 emails was found on the laptop of former congressman Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of Clinton’s longtime aide Huma Abedin. FBI investigators will determine if the emails contain classified information, Comey wrote in his letter to lawmakers.
On Monday, Kadzik updated members of Congress on the revived probe, promising that the Justice Department and the FBI would work closely and swiftly to evaluate the emails.
Podesta’s involvement with Kadzik and his family has resurfaced after WikiLeaks released thousands of emails by the Clinton campaign chairman, who also served as White House chief of staff during Bill Clinton’s presidency.
In 1998, Kadzik represented Podesta in an investigation involving Monica Lewinsky, the White House intern with whom former president Clinton had an affair.
