Comey: Nothing New Found in Emails to Recommend Charges

Comey: Nothing New Found in Emails to Recommend Charges

By    |   Sunday, 06 November 2016 03:38 PM

FBI Director James Comey told lawmakers Sunday the agency hasn't changed its opinion that Hillary Clinton should not face criminal charges after a review of new emails, reports say.

The news was reported by both CNN, and Fox News, which tweeted out an announcement from Utah GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz.

Comey sent the letter Sunday, just two days before Election Day.

In July, he chastised Clinton's use of the private mail server but said that the bureau would not be recommending criminal charges against the Democratic nominee.

The new letter follows one Comey sent late last month in which he said agents would be reviewing newly discovered emails that may be connected to Clinton.

Comeys bombshell announcement that it had reopened the investigation into Clinton's private email server based on newly discovered emails in its separate investigation of Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin, rocked the Clinton campaign 11 days before Election Day.

"Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we
expressed in July," Comey said in the letter to top Republicans on the
House Oversight Committee, CNN reported.

Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon said her campaign is validated in its belief that nothing would change.

"We were always confident nothing would cause the July decision to be revisited. Now Director Comey has confirmed it," he said, CNN reported.
