Although the FBI has cleared Hillary Clinton of criminal wrongdoing for her "extremely careless" treatment of classified information, the inquiries into her private email use are far from over.
Members of the House Judiciary Committee will grill Attorney General Loretta Lynch Tuesday about her decision to close the Clinton email investigation without filing charges against anyone involved. The chairman of that committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, led 200 House Republicans in a push Monday for the Justice Department to reveal more details about how it reached the conclusion that Clinton should not be charged for her conduct.
Congressional Republicans remain committed to stripping the former secretary of state of her access to sensitive materials ahead of the classified briefings that will begin for both presidential nominees after their respective conventions.
Beyond the political hurdles that lie ahead for Clinton and her aides, the presumptive Democratic nominee faces three additional probes related to her personal email practices that could further expose her conduct as secretary of state to scrutiny.
FBI Director James Comey told members of the House Oversight Committee last week that Clinton's attorneys had selected which emails they would provide the State Department by performing keyword searches only of the messages that remained on her server in 2014, not of all the emails she had transmitted during her tenure.
However, Clinton had assured the House Select Committee on Benghazi in October of last year that her legal team had read each individual email to ensure all work-related records would be turned over to the government. Comey admitted his investigators had recovered thousands of official emails that were never submitted to the State Department.
The contradiction was one of several exposed by the FBI last week, leading congressional Republicans to push for a criminal referral to the FBI for potential perjury related to Clinton's Benghazi testimony. Unlike her interview with FBI investigators, Clinton was placed under oath during the October hearing.
Other misstatements include her assertion that she transmitted nothing on her private server that was "marked" classified. Comey suggested last week that Clinton was not "sophisticated enough" to recognize the classified markings on emails that reached her inbox.
A conservative watchdog group that has already interviewed seven current or former staff members involved with the operation of Clinton's private server has asked a judge to allow its attorneys to question Clinton under oath.
A judge left the door open for such a deposition to occur in May when he permitted Judicial Watch to interview a group of aides about the email network with the caveat that questioning Clinton "may be necessary" depending on the information uncovered in the first set of depositions.
Bryan Pagliano, Clinton's information technology specialist, invoked his Fifth Amendment rights and in response to roughly 125 questions from Judicial Watch attorneys and refused to testify.
Other aides, including Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills, said in their depositions that they had little memory of the server system's origins.
Clinton must respond to the court by Tuesday.
State Department investigation
Clinton's private email use violated the State Department's record-keeping practices, the agency's inspector general concluded in late May.
While an internal State Department review was put on hold while the FBI conducted its criminal investigation, agency officials announced last week that they planned to reopen the probe into Clinton's record-keeping failures as secretary of state.
The "administrative" review could cost Clinton's aides their security clearances if State Department officials agree with the FBI that those aides demonstrated a high level of carelessness in their treatment of sensitive records.
State Department spokesman John Kirby said Friday that Clinton and her staffers could face "employment" consequences for their handling of classified material should the agency's probe uncover evidence of wrongdoing.
Comey suggested during his hearing Thursday that the individuals he investigated in the Clinton email case could be fired from the FBI had they been employed there rather than by the State Department.
