Senior FBI officials were told of new emails in early October but wanted more information before renewing Clinton probe


Senior FBI officials were informed about the discovery of new emails potentially relevant to the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server at least two weeks before Director James B. Comey notified Congress, according to federal officials familiar with the investigation.

The officials said that Comey was told that there were new emails before he received a formal briefing last Thursday, although the precise timing is unclear.

The information goes beyond the details provided in the letter that Comey sent to lawmakers last week declaring that he was restarting the inquiry into whether Clinton mishandled classified material during her tenure as secretary of state. He wrote in the Friday letter that “the investigative team briefed me yesterday” about the additional emails.


Always better to be cautious than be in a hurry!


How much more do we need to come to the conclusion that Clinton is the most corrupt candidate to ever run for the Presidency? Good grief, people would have to be completely bonkers to vote for this woman.


I don’t get it either! :eek: :shrug:


In October, this new information came up, a briefing was held, and it became public. :shrug:What is the actual news here? This is the FBI here, not the media. Accuracy is of more value than speed.
