Andrew McCabe had no conflict in Hillary Clinton email probe — Federal Bureau of Investigation documents

Nick Merrill, a spokesman for Ms Clinton, said the probe's goal was to "distract from the indictments, guilty pleas, and accusations of treason from [US President Donald] Trump's own people at the expense of our justice system's integrity".

The Clinton Foundation is again under investigation by the FBI, but a spokeswoman for Hillary Clinton has called it a "sham".

It was not immediately clear what prompted the renewed investigation, although a representative of the foundation implied in a statement to CNN that it was likely politically motivated. "This is a philanthropy that does life-changing work, which Republicans have tried to turn into a political football", Merrill said.

Federal authorities are actively investigating allegations of corruption related to the Clinton Foundation, the charity of Bill and Hillary Clinton, according to a United States official briefed on the matter. It began with a long-debunked project spearheaded by (former Trump adviser) Steve Bannon during the presidential campaign.

The US Justice Department has opened a new inquiry into the Clinton family's non-profit organisation, the Clinton Foundation, US media report.

Spokesmen for the Clintons and the foundation insisted on the false nature of the allegations.

It was not immediately clear what specific donations or interactions agents were scrutinizing, and there was some skepticism inside both the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation that the case would ultimately lead to any charges.

"It was not until (McCabe) assumed the position of deputy director in February 2016 that he had oversight of the (Clinton) investigation, well after (Jill McCabe's) campaign had concluded". The Clinton Foundation has demonstrably improved the lives of millions of people across America and around the world while earning top ratings from charity watchdog groups in the process.

He said Attorney General Jeff Sessions was doing President Trump's bidding to distract from the Russian Federation probe.

The investigation into the Clinton Foundation has nothing to do with the probe into Ms Clinton's use of a private email server, CBS News reports.

Both as a candidate and during his time in office, U.S. President Donald Trump has repeatedly called for an inquiry into his former political rival.

The debate he was referring to the second presidential debate between Trump and failed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in October 2016.
