Comey, Lynch meet following announcement of email review in Clinton case

Reports have also surfaced of the FBI opening an investigation into former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort's ties to Russian Federation as a Washington DC lobbyist, which the investigating agency has neither confirmed nor denied.

According to The New York Times, the Federal Bureau of Investigation. has never disclosed new evidence once a case has been closed-especially so close to a presidential election. "Through your partisan actions, you may have broken the law", Reid wrote in a letter to Comey Sunday, referring to the Hatch Act. "Secretary Clinton is for transparency here", Feingold said.

We don't know whether any of the newly discovered emails contain classified information or will lead to the FBI's starting an official new investigation.

The emails were reportedly found in an unrelated sexting investigation of Anthony Weiner, a former congressman and the estranged husband of Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

The official who spoke to the AP was not authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation by name and spoke on condition of anonymity. "For another, whatever the wisdom of Mr. Comey's actions, there is no basis for such allegations, as President Obama's spokesman said Monday". Because the letter is so vague, it can be easily misinterpreted as having damning information, despite the fact that no evidence of wrongdoing on Clinton's part now exists.

"They do not have an obligation to do that", Painter said. He had closed the investigation in July without pressing charges.

Donald Trump ignores opinion polls when they are unkind to him but he has been talking about them again lately as he shrinks Hillary Clinton's lead in the final days of the race for White House.

The US Justice Department said Monday that it will try to reach a quick conclusion of the latest probe into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's emails. In response to these egregious offenses and countless others, Trump has either denied having any blame or threatened to sue those who question him.

Mr. Trump, who had been accusing Mr. Comey of being part of a "rigged system" until last week, now says he has a "lot of guts". But that separation wasn't enough for the U.S. Office of Special Counsel.

A resurgent Donald Trump has claimed that his rival could find herself "under protracted criminal investigation and probably a criminal trial" that could last for years. Rather, the Fourth Amendment requires the initial look at the emails to generate "immediate" probable cause that they are evidence of a crime first, before their seizure is permitted and used to get a second warrant. "It's a total breach of protocol", Mook said. "But I tell you what - what he did, he brought back his reputation", Trump said, as the crowd applauded in agreement.
