There’s no case here: Clinton on FBI probe
Hillary Clinton has forcefully challenged the FBI's new email inquiry, declaring during a campaign rally in battleground Ohio, "There's no case here." Clinton's comments on Sunday were her most pointed yet on the subject, and they underscored her campaign's decision to fight back aggressively against FBI Director James Comey.
On Friday, just over a week from Election Day, Comey alerted Congress that the FBI has obtained new material that may be related to its dormant investigation into whether classified information passed through Clinton's private email server while she served as secretary of state.
The FBI plans to review the emails to see if they contain classified information and if so, whether they were handled properly. The Justice Department said yesterday it would "dedicate all necessary resources" to concluding the review promptly.
Clinton accused the FBI of having jumped into the election "with no evidence of any wrongdoing with just days to go." She said that if the bureau wants to look at the emails, which appear tied to her longtime aide Huma Abedin, "by all means, they should look at them."
