James Comey told Congress that a new investigation related to Hillary Clinton’s private email server had not unearthed any information that would warrant any charges being brought against her.
“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.
Hillary 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 ithttps://t.co/BMQQx9eRzw

Sundays news comes just over a week after the FBI Director dropped a bombshell into the presidential race by revealing newly-found evidence in the Hillary Clinton email probe.
Comey’s letter to congress said that agents “have been working around the clock to process and review” the emails, which had been found on a computer owned by former Rep. Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of Clinton’s close aide Huma Abedin.
He said: “During that process, we have reviewed all of the communications that were to or from Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of State,” adding that “Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton.”
It took the FBI 15 months to review about 50,000 emails. They reviewed 650,000 in 8 days–about 1 per second? I’m calling bullshit. #Rigged!
