Clinton has announced plans to attend Trump's inauguration in Washington next week.

The Justice Department inspector general on Thursday revealed that it would launch an investigation into the FBI’s conduct leading up to the 2016 elections. 

The investigation will look into what impact, if any, various public disclosures about the FBI’s probe of Clinton’s private email server had on voters.

Clinton’s campaign has blamed FBI Director James Comey for the former secretary of State’s loss.

Comey sent lawmakers a letter 11 days before Election Day, telling them investigators had found new emails possibly relevant to the FBI’s Clinton probe.

The FBI director ultimately revealed the emails turned up no new evidence that Clinton mishandled classified information at the State Department.

Clinton supporters have suggested Comey’s announcement may have aided Trump’s narrow win in several battleground states despite her lead in the popular vote.

The FBI typically does not publicly comment on ongoing probes, leading critics to slam the disclosure as an unprecedented break with bureau policy.
