FBI agents in New York were reportedly given a green light after the presidential election to continue an investigation of the Clinton Foundation.

Officials at FBI headquarters ordered New York field agents to "go forward" with its probe focusing on corruption and money laundering, The Daily Caller reported Wednesday, citing an unnamed former official.

"There were no instructions to shut it down, to discontinue or to stand down on the investigation, but to continue its work," the source told The Daily Caller, adding the order came from bureau's headquarters in Washington after the Nov. 8 election.

The Daily Caller reported the same source said the probe was being conducted in as many as four other cities – Little Rock, Ark., Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and Miami. The status of those inquiries was unknown.

President-elect Donald Trump indicated prosecuting rival Hillary Clinton or her foundation would not be a priority, though he did not rule out probes were under way.

The spark for the FBI investigation appeared to be secret recordings of suspects in Los Angeles involved in money laundering activities who mentioned the Clinton Foundation, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Bureau agents also conferred with Peter Schweizer, whose book "Clinton Cash" chronicled money flow into the foundation, but senior Justice Department officials reportedly were skeptical of the Clinton Foundation case, the Journal reported.
