Is reopening Clinton Foundation probe legit?

By all reports, the FBI has reopened the investigation into the Clinton Foundation. There have been witnesses interviewed about the Foundations activities in possible pay to play with the Hillary Clinton led State Department. All investigations under the Obama administration were quashed. President Trump has been pushing to have Crocked Hillary investigated. Is the DOJ still politicized, only by a different party?
