It looks like the FBI may be conducting a new investigation into the Hillary Clinton email scandal. This is according to FBI director James Comey. Director Comey gave these comments in a letter to congressional leaders Friday. The Washington Post wrote about this saying:
"The FBI will investigate whether additional classified material is contained in emails sent using Hillary Clinton’s private email server while she was secretary of state, FBI Director James Comey informed congressional leaders Friday.The announcement appears to restart the FBI’s probe of Clinton’s server, less than two weeks before the presidential election, an explosive development that could shape the campaign’s final days.
In a letter to congressional leaders, Comey said that the FBI had, in connection with an “unrelated case,” recently “learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the Clinton investigation.”Comey indicated that he had been briefed on the new material yesterday. “I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation,” he wrote.The FBI had previously closed its Investigation in July with no charges, though Comey had concluded there had been classified content exchanged on the server and that Clinton had been “extremely careless.”
This adds a new twist in an already hectic campaign season. The prospect of having a presidential candidate who is under a second federal investigation is abnormal to say the least. Stay tuned for more with us at the Red River.
