Hillary Clinton is not off the hook just yet, it turns out. The State Department announced Thursday evening that they will reopen their investigation into the presidential candidate's mismanagement of classified data.

Though this week seemed like a win for Clinton, with the FBI choosing not to prosecute her and James Comey defending his decision during a an intense grilling from congress today, the Associated Press reported that the former secretary of state's aides and confidants could face punishment.

The State Department began its probe in January, but suspended the review in April to avoid interfering with the FBI's investigation. Now that FBI announced Clinton will not face criminal charges, the State Department probe is back on.

John Kirby, a spokesman for the State Department said "We will aim to be as expeditious as possible, but we will not put artificial deadlines on the process."

Kirby said former officials could still face "administrative sanctions" and that "there could be repercussions."

Story developing.
