A watchdog group has intensified its demand that Attorney Gen. Loretta Lynch appoint a special counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton's private e-mail server after The Washington Free Beacon reported that she received nearly $75,000 in campaign contributions from Department of Justice employees.

That is the agency that would normally decide what action to take if the FBI recommends pressing charges against Clinton in the case.

The money given to the Democratic front-runner's campaign from Justice Department workers is nearly eight times as much as the combined funds received from them by the other two candidates remaining in the race, Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump and Democratic rival Bernie Sanders. It is also nearly five times as much as Clinton received from those in the department in her unsuccessful 2008 run for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Citizens United president David Bossie told the The Washington Free Beacon he did not see "how Democratic political appointees can fairly investigate who is about to become their nominee for president."

Lynch contributed more than $10,000 to Democratic candidates in previous years.

Former State Department Inspector Gen. Howard Krongard insisted to The New York Post that there will never be an indictment of Clinton because, in addition to Lynch, her case would have to go through three "additional loyal Democratic women, Assistant Attorney Gen. Leslie Caldwell, who heads the department's criminal division; Deputy Attorney Gen. Sally Yates; and top White House adviser Valerie Jarrett."

In the latest development in the e-mail case, CNN reported that the Republican National Committee claims the State Department has not found, during the period Clinton was secretary of state, emails sent and received by IT staffer Bryan Pagliano, who set up her private server. The committee is suing the department for those records.
