MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The US congressional investigators have found new violations inside the FBI’s inquiry into the email scandal around Hillary Clinton, The Hill newspaper reported.

According to the newspaper, the FBI documents read that the "sheer volume" of classified information in Clinton’s emails prove criminality as well as false testimonies by one key witness in the case, an employee of a computer firm.

This witness later admitted erasure of the archive of Clinton’s messages in 2015 after they were subpoenaed by the Congress.

Clinton used a private server and email accounts for official business during her tenure as secretary of state from 2009 to 2013 contrary to US regulations and established practice. The investigation into the case was closed in July 2015 after the FBI concluded that Clinton was "extremely careless" in handling her email system but recommended that no charges be filed against her.

The FBI reopened the probe prior to the 2016 US presidential election over newly discovered emails that may be pertinent to the case. However, the agency stood by its earlier conclusion not to prosecute Clinton.
