    The FBI is probing new emails related to Hillary Clinton, FBI Director James Comey said in a Friday letter.


    "In previous congressional testimony, I referred to the fact that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had completed its investigation of former Secretary Clinton's personal email server. Due to recent developments, I am writing to supplement my previous testimony," Comey wrote.

    "In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation. I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday, and 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 added.

    What is this? Less than two weeks before the election? Got to be either Comey thinks Trump will win and decided to try to save his career or it's so bad that he thinks Hillary will lose because of it. And what does that nut Julian Assange have on her that so bad, she'll go to jail?

    Actually, they're finding more stuff from the wikileaks material that's causing an additional pile-on.

    It must be quite significant for the FBI to reopen the case.

    ...as I suspected the media will be all over attacking the messenger and his timing rather than focusing on the issue of a presidential candidate (if liberal) being the subject of criminal investigation - involving issues of national security, no less...

    Actually, I was listening to CBS Radio in NY and they were interviewing someone (didn't catch his name) and they asked if this could hurt Mrs. Clinton and help Mr. Trump. He said absolutely and this was basically handing Mr. Trump the solution to the election on a silver platter and at the very least this will remove votes from her. I love what someone posted on Facebook today: "I'm going to vote for the candidate NOT being investigated by the FBI". :D

    It will do nothing. The emails in question have nothing to do with her. This is about Anthony Weiner and his messages to that underage girl.

    Amazing how dishonest this thread and the story is. The emails in question are Anthony Weiner's. The only "related" to Hillary connection is that he is Huma's(her assistant's) husband.

    SHAMELESS.

    Yeah, right, the FBI is taking the unusual steps of reopening the criminal investigation on Hillary - even though the emails in question have nothing to do with her. That makes since...

    Me thinks perhaps Zaac is blinded by "shameless" love and in denial...

    I do agree. The FBI knew about Weiner's antics while they were first investigating her. This is about emails to her that apparently were not given to the FBI. Hiding much? Honestly, were this the Republican candidate, his tombstone would already be written and the election would be over.

    Democrats in July: The FBI has ended the email investigation. It's over.

    Democrats today: FBI is not reopening the investigation since it never ended.

    The FBI had a mountain of evidence to convict Hillary before this. What makes anyone think they are going to change their mind with any thing else that comes up? Hillary has her hooks into every justice department there is. She is untouchable.

    This isn't going to change anything. Seems the emails are not Hillary's or some may be duplicates already in the possession of the FBI. Press is dialing back on this one. The confusion was caused by a GOP Congressman, Republican Jason Chaffetz who said the investigation was going to be reopened. He was wrong. The case has never been closed. Giving Chaffetz the benefit of the doubt he was either playing politics or exhibiting ignorance.

    From: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry...ail-investigation_us_58138552e4b0990edc30cb36

    The emails were found on devices belonging to Clinton aide Huma Abedin and former Congressman Anthony Weiner, The New York Times first reported and The Associated Press confirmed. Weiner has been under federal investigation over allegations that he traded sexually explicit messages with an underage girl. He and Abedin separated in August.

    There is also shame on the press for not checking the information before publishing.

    This is more evidence that the Clintons are nothing but criminals It must be so bad that even President Obama cannot contain it. Bill and Hillary are guilty of treason, perjury, theft, and probably murder. What kind of person has such a low view of the office of President of the United States that they would even consider voting for such garbage.

    I wonder when Comey is going to commit suicide by shooting himself in the back of his own head 17 times? Aka, Arkancide.

    More likely he found something tangentially related to his initial investigation (ex. emails that went through Clinton's private server) and was duty bound to report it to the House committee.

    I believe the FBI was originally going on that they would prove criminal intent and they didn't have that evidence - albeit short of a plainly clear confession from Hillary she could probably lie her way out of it. BUT, I suspect that now they have something showing criminal intent involving that private server and most likely perjury and withholding evidence as well concerning Hillary's claims of not having (intentionally) sent classified material. I believe the FBI must be confident they now have the evidence they need or they wouldn't have taken the measures they did.

    Of course, Hillary and her supporters will claim it is nothing more than a conspiracy against her while hoping to maintain damage control by fabricating and downplaying suggestions through the remainder of the election. Hillary's lies have already become embarrassingly obvious though starting with her announcement that the letter was sent only to Republicans as she begins to set up her conspiracy theory lie defense.

    Note that Pence also called on the evidence being released because he is smart enough to know that otherwise there is nothing to stop Hillary downplaying it...Common sense should tell objective observers that the FBI would have NEVER reopened this case if the evidence wasn't significant and Comey knew he would have been under attack for withholding this new evidence until after the election was most assuredly the motivation to release it now.
