In a letter to Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck GrassleyCharles (Chuck) Ernest GrassleyErnst endorses bipartisan Grassley-Wyden bill to lower drug prices Overnight Health Care: Nevada union won't endorse before caucuses after 'Medicare for All' scrap | McConnell tees up votes on two abortion bills | CDC confirms 15th US coronavirus case Mnuchin defends Treasury regulations on GOP tax law MORE (R-Iowa), the State Department said it had issued 23 violations and seven infractions, finding 15 unidentified individuals to be involved in Clinton’s use of a private email server.

The department said the letter to Grassley, who is leading congressional oversight of the security review, was issued as an update on the “lengthy” and “serious” investigation.

“Given the volume of emails provided to the Department from former Secretary Clinton's private email server, the Department's process has been necessarily more complicated and complex requiring a significant dedication of time and resources,” the letter reads.

The State Department’s review began after the FBI looked into Clinton’s use of a private server while serving as secretary of State.

Trump frequently spoke of Clinton’s private email use ahead of the 2016 presidential election, centering the deletion of 33,000 emails from the server.

He vowed that if he beat Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, he would order the Justice Department to prosecute her.

The State Department is expected to wrap up the probe by Sept. 1, and it said the number of violations and infractions issued “will likely change as the review progresses.”
