FBI Director James Comey said Sunday that the bureau won’t change the conclusion it made in July after it examined newly revealed emails related to the Hillary Clinton probe.
“Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton,” Comey wrote in a letter to 16 members of Congress.
The investigative team had “been working around the clock to process and review” emails found on former New York congressman Anthony Weiner’s laptop — using a program that targeted only the
emails to and from Clinton’s closest aide, Huma Abedin, within the time when Clinton was secretary of state.
In a statement, a Justice Department spokesman said, “The Department of Justice and the FBI
dedicated all necessary resources
to conduct this review expeditiously.”
The news comes after the FBI
announced it would review a new batch of emails that appeared to be “pertinent” to the investigation
that was suspended in July, which had looked into Clinton’s use of a private server.
