Comey told Congress in a letter made public on Friday that his agency was reviewing new emails that appeared to be linked to Clinton, who had been probed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation over her use of a private server and how she handled classified information while serving as America's top diplomat. They have been under intense pressure from officials in both parties to do so since Friday, when FBI Director James Comey revealed the existence of the emails in an explosive letter to Congress.

The notification, two weeks before the election, came over the objections of Justice Department officials and drew scathing criticism from former prosecutors and Democrats in Congress.
