Clinton campaign responds to FBI director’s letter regarding email investigation, Washington Examiner, T. Becket Adams, October 28, 2016

Hillary Clinton‘s team formally responded Friday afternoon to news that the FBI had uncovered additional emails related to the private homebrew server she maintained when she worked at the State Department.

“Upon completing this investigation more than three months ago, FBIDirector Comey declared no reasonable prosecutor would move forward with a case like this and added that it was not even a close call. In the months since, Donald Trump and his Republican allies have been baselessly second-guessing the FBI and, in both public and private, browbeating the career officials there to revisit their conclusion in a desperate attempt to harm Hillary Clinton‘s presidential campaign,” the Democratic nominee’s campaign chairman, John Pdoesta, said in a statement made available to the Washington Examiner.

FBI Director Comey should immediately provide the American public more information than is contained in the letter he sent to eight Republican committee chairmen. Already, we have seen characterizations that the FBI is ‘reopening’ an investigation but Comey’s words do not match that characterization. Director Comey’s letter refers to emails that have come to light in an unrelated case, but we have no idea what those emails are and the Director himself notes they may not even be significant.

“It is extraordinary that we would see something like this just 11 days out from a presidential election,” the statement concluded. “The Director owes it to the American people to immediately provide the full details of what he is now examining. We are confident this will not produce any conclusions different from the one the FBI reached in July.”
