Hillary Rodham Clinton will turn over the personal email server she used while serving as secretary of state to the Justice Department, her campaign spokesman said Tuesday.
The decision advances the investigation into the Democratic presidential front-runner’s use of a private email account as the nation’s top diplomat, and whether classified information was improperly stored on her home-brew email server.
Clinton had previously refused demands from Republican critics to turn over the server to a third party.
Spokesman Nick Merrill said Clinton has “pledged to cooperate with the government’s security inquiry, and if there are more questions, we will continue to address them.”
Also Tuesday, Clinton gave to the Justice Department thumb drives containing copies of emails sent to and from her personal email addresses via that server.
Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall, gave three thumb drives containing copies of roughly 30,000 emails to the FBI after the agency determined he could not remain in possession of the classified information contained in some of the emails, according to a U.S. official briefed on the matter who was not authorized to speak publicly.
