Addressing volunteers at Daytona Beach, Florida, Clinton mentioned on Friday that the FBI director had sent a letter addressed to the U.S. Congress informing it that the agency is again reviewing her emails.
The FBI had decided in July that it was not going to seek prosecution of Clinton for her mis-handling of classified materials on a private email server while serving under President Barack Obama as Secretary of State (2009-2013).
Clinton slammed the bombshell news saying that it was pretty strange to put something like this out with such ‘little information’ at the last minute before the election. She called Comey’s investigation as strange, unprecedented and deeply troubling saying devoters deserved to get the full facts.
Her notoriously controversial conservative opponent, Republican candidate and billionaire Donald Trump has publicly lauded the FBI’s plan to reopen the investigation calling Hillary’s alleged criminal activities ‘worse than Watergate’ and a ‘grave miscarriage of justice’
Trump declared to a cheering New Hampshire crowd Friday that Hillary’s corruption was on a scale that Americans have never seen before and that they “must not let her take her criminal schemes into the Oval Office.”
Shortly before Trump’s firey speech, U.S. Congressman Jason Chaffetz tweeted Comey had informed him that “the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation.” He also announced the case had been reopened.

Comey, in a letter to key Republicans chairing House committees, stated he could not predict how long it would take for the bureau to complete the investigation.
According to CNN, Comey’s letter to Congress notifying them of the Bureau’s email probe has attracted criticism from the DOJ’s Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General who have stated it as being contrary to departmental policies and procedures.
Comey later defended his actions by basically saying that this was not normal procedure however he felt an obligation to notify the Congress as he had repeatedly testified in recent months that the Bureau’s investigation was completed.
