The race for the White House is tightening after the FBI renewed its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email server.
Just nine 9 days before the election, the investigation has shed new negative light on Clinton, but it has also opened the country’s law enforcement agency up to heavy criticism.
FBI obtains search warrant for newly discovered emails in Clinton probeJust nine days before the election, federal investigators looking into the HillaryClinton email probe have obtained the warrant needed to start reviewing the emails. But that could take weeks.
While the FBI cleared Clinton of any wrongdoing in the handling of US national secrets back in July, it has now uncovered new evidence in the investigation.
That evidence, according to the Wall Street Journal, is more than 650-thousand emails found on a computer Clinton’s aide, Huma Abedin, shared with her now-estranged husband.
The FBI reportedly found them in early October while investigating Anthony Weiner on unrelated charges.
But what no one knows, including the FBI, is what’s in those emails. The FBI has now gained access to them, but reviewing them could take weeks.
Donald Trump wasted no time in calling Clinton a criminal.
In the latest opinion polls, Donald Trump is now within just a few points of Clinton, a statistical dead-heat.
And it’s clear the Trump campaign plans to keep giving American voters reasons not to trust Hillary Clinton.
