'You can see the brouhaha this is causing,' says former prosecutor
The federal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private server and her transmitting of classified information was revived Friday, as FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to congressional leaders and relevant committee chairmen that new evidence has emerged in the case.
“In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation,” wrote Comey.
“I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday, and I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation,” he added.
Comey also made it clear the FBI has not thoroughly examined all the new evidence, since it just came to his attention on Thursday.
