A newly released audit from the State Department’s inspector general is critical of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton use of a private email server.

It’s not the first time Clinton and her staffers have found themselves the subject of an IG investigation.

For the Record obtained an October 2012 IG memo showing that Under Secretary of State Patrick Kennedy and then-Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills worked to block internal investigations by the State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service. The cases involved allegations of sexual misconduct and pedophilia by an ambassador and an ambassador-designate accused of sharing sensitive information with his girlfriend, a reporter for the Wall Street Journal.

Rick Higbie, an agent with the Diplomatic Security Service and a State Department whistleblower, told For the Record that the goal was to make it easier to dismiss the cases later.

“Under Secretary Kennedy and the chief of staff — I believe she was the chief of staff — in the secretary’s office, Cheryl Mills, were directly involved in doing everything that they could to stop investigations, to influence investigations, to impact their ability to go forward,” said Higbie. “Then later apparently, the easy way to deal with this is to say, ‘There is no evidence. What evidence?’”
