David Kendall, the Democratic frontrunner's lawyer, was also contacted by agents last week regarding questions about the security of a USB drive he has which holds work emails Clinton sent while serving in the Obama administration, according to the Post.

“The government is seeking assurance about the storage of those materials. We are actively cooperating," Kendall confirmed to the Post.

Clinton's use of a private email to conduct official government business has drawn intense scrutiny from the public, government officials and Republican 2016 hopefuls.
