FBI Completes Review of Newly Revealed Hillary Clinton Emails, Finds No Evidence of Criminality
November 7, 2016
FBI Director James Comey said Sunday that the bureau won't change the conclusion it made in July after it examined newly revealed emails related to the Hillary Clinton probe.
"Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton," Comey wrote in a letter to 16 members of Congress.
The investigative team had "been working around the clock to process and review emails found on former New York congressman Anthony Weiner's laptop— using a program that targeted only the emails to and from Clinton's closest aide, Huma Abedin, within the time when Clinton was secretary of state.
In a statement, a Justice Department spokesman said, "The Department of Justice and the FBI dedicated all necessary resources to conduct this review expeditiously."
The news comes after the FBI announced it would review a new batch of emails that appeared to be "pertinent" to the investigation that was suspended in July, which had looked into Clinton's use of a private server.
Multiple federal sources told NBC News that the emails were found as a part of an ongoing probe into Weiner's alleged illicit communication with an underage girl.
On the Clinton campaign's plane, spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri said she was "glad to see" that Comey had affirmed the conclusion reached in July and that the "matter is resolved."
The Trump campaign didn't immediately respond to NBC News' request for comment.
On Twitter, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a Trump surrogate, started the campaign's pivot back to the "rigged system" claims they shared earlier in the election season.
