Clinton May Concede as FBI Ignites Probe

“In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of email that appear to be pertinent” to Clinton’s investigation, Comey wrote to the chairs of several relevant congressional committees, adding that he was briefed about the messages on Thursday. “I agree 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.”

The FBI spent about a year investigating Clinton’s use of an unauthorized private email server for her work as U.S. secretary of state between 2009 and 2013 after it emerged that there were classified government secrets in some of her emails.

The government forbids transmitting classified information outside secure channels. In July, Comey said there was evidence that Clinton and her staff may have broken laws, but that no reasonable prosecutor would bring charges.

“In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation,” Comey wrote in the letter released on Friday. He provided no further details about the nature of the emails or the other case.

The FBI’s head said on Friday that the agency would investigate additional emails that have surfaced related to Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email server to determine whether they contain classified information, adding that it is unclear how significant the new materials may be.

In a letter to several U.S. congressional committee chairmen, Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey said that he “cannot predict how long it will take us to complete this additional work.”
