Democratic senators demand the Federal Bureau of Investigation release more information on Clinton email probe
Oct 30 2016 by Kathy Alvarado
On a conference call with reporters Saturday, Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta accused Comey of failing to be "forthcoming with the facts".
Clinton said that Republican nominee Donald Trump is "fear mongering" over the email situation and told supporters to "reject Trump's dark and divisive vision". "Put it all out on the table, right?" she said.
Entering the final days of the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton must have been sure she had deleted away her email controversy from voters' minds and was sailing toward a landslide win.
Hillary Clinton's campaign lashed out at the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Saturday, saying there is no indication that a cache of recently discovered emails under review by the agency is connected to the Democratic nominee. Moreover, despite the widespread claims in the media that this development had prompted the FBI to "reopen" of the case, it did not; such investigations are never actually closed, and it is common for law enforcement to discover new information that needs to be examined.
Justice officials concluded the letter would be inconsistent with department policy that directs against investigative actions that could be seen as affecting an election or helping a particular candidate.
Landing with a thud, the email issue again threatened to undermine an advantage Clinton seemed to be gaining over Trump and raised the possibility that the Republican might be able to seize momentum during the final days before the November 8 election. The New York Times and other outlets reported that the emails were discovered as the agency was looking into Anthony Weiner's alleged sexts to an underage girl. Although Comey could not put a timetable on how long it will take to review the new material, a source tells USA TODAY that is unlikely it will be completed before Election Day.
On Friday, Comey announced that the FBI had discovered emails in an unrelated probe that might relate to its investigation of the private email server Clinton exclusively used as secretary of state.

Four senior Democratic senators are calling on the Justice Department and the FBI to promptly release more information on emails identified by FBI Director James Comey as pertinent to its investigation of Hillary Clinton's personal email server.
"That's because the Justice Department is trying so hard to protect Hillary", Trump said at a rally in battleground Colorado.
"I think he should immediately explain exactly what these new emails are and who they're to and who they're from and the subject matter, because there's no indication at this point that secretary".
The two separated earlier this year after Weiner was caught in 2011, 2013 and again in 2016 sending sexually explicit text messages and photographs of himself undressed to numerous women using the alias "Carlos Danger".
"In trying to strike that balance, in a brief letter and in the middle of an election season, there is significant risk of being misunderstood, but I wanted you to hear directly from me about it", said Comey, according to the note to employees.
Weiner is the estranged partner of key Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
The FBI says it recently came upon new emails possibly pertinent to that investigation. Donna Brazile, now the interim chair of the Democratic National Commitee, tweeted out a Washington Post editorial in July that "Republicans are damaging rule of law by attacking FBI Director Comey".
"I don't know whether your family's watching this, but I hope that they are as proud of you as I am, because you are the epitome of what a public servant is all about".
