The nation's top law enforcement officer says the FBI isn't in a rush to complete its probe into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private email server before the presidential nomination conventions.

In a speech in Buffalo, FBI Director James Comey says of the ongoing investigation that he's staying "close to this one to make sure we have the resources to do it competently," the Niagara-Gazette reports.

And though he refused to specifically comment on the probe, he asserted there was no pressure to complete it before conventions this summer that will pick the presidential nominees for both parties. Clinton is currently the Democratic front-runner.

"The urgency is to do it well and promptly," Comey said, the newspaper reports. "And 'well' comes first."

The FBI investigation is looking to determine if Clinton and her aides distributed sensitive materials knowingly from the private email server she used at the time, which was outside the State Department's secured system. Clinton has denied sending out emails that were marked as classified.

The State Department has released all 3,871 pages of Clinton's emails that it possessed; 22 contained "top secret" information, it said, but they were not classified top secret at that time.
