The FBI on Monday released 100 new pages of material from its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email system, opening the possibility that classified information may have been mishandled.
The new notes and interview summaries are likely to shed new light on the bureau’s yearlong investigation into Clinton and her allies and spark additional outrage from congressional Republicans.
Despite claiming that the former secretary of State and her aides had been “extremely careless,” FBI Director James Comey has insisted that his investigators did not find evidence to support a criminal charge against the Democratic presidential nominee. The Justice Department ultimately decided not to press charges over the matter.
However, Republicans have refused to accept the department’s conclusion and have accused officials, including Comey, of creating a double standard for Clinton.
