The FBI has confirmed that it is investigating Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.

In a letter obtained by several news agencies, FBI General Counsel James A. Baker said that "the Bureau has acknowledged generally that it is working on matters related to former Secretary of State Clinton's use of a private e-mail [sic] server."

The letter, addressed to Mary McCleod, the State Department's principal deputy legal adviser.

Meanwhile, Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Monday also reaffirmed that the FBI's probe into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of state is free of outside political influence.

She told The Associated Press on Monday that the FBI investigation is independent and is being conducted by career lawyers looking at the facts and evidence.

Republicans have been critical of the Democratic presidential candidate's use of personal email when she led State.

Baker's letter says the FBI has not "publicly acknowledged the specific focus, scope or potential targets of any such proceedings."
