Trump tried to access Hillary Clinton's stolen email correspondence

During the 2016 election campaign, U.S. President Donald Trump discussed with his subordinates ways to access Hillary Clinton's stolen email correspondence.

This is stated in the materials of the investigation of US special prosecutor Robert Mueller, reports CNN.

It is reported that the American media in court have made it possible for the US Department of Justice to publish materials on an investigation into possible ties between Trump and Russia during the 2016 elections, which was conducted by special prosecutor Mueller.

The first part says that Trump during a conversation with his subordinates demanded to get emails, which, according to US intelligence, were stolen by Russia. Then, Trump's ex-security adviser Michael Flynn said that he could use his intelligence sources to receive correspondence.

In mid-October 2019, the U.S. Department of State completed an internal investigation into the correspondence of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, which lasted three years.

In 2015, the FBI found out that Hillary Clinton, while serving as US Secretary of State, used her personal email inbox for official correspondence.

The then head of the FBI, James Komi, sharply criticized Clinton for her "extremely careless" behavior, but did not see any evidence of criminal intentions.

In November 2016, Komi stated that the FBI would not resume the Clinton e-mail investigation.
