FBI clears Clinton — again — in email probe
The FBI director, James Comey, informed Congress yesterday that his agency had found no evidence of wrongdoing in a recently discovered trove of emails from Hillary Clinton.
“Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusion that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton,” Comey wrote in a letter to the leaders of several congressional committees.
The letter from Comey comes just weeks after the FBI director had previously written to Congress to inform that his administration was reopening the investigation into Clinton’s emails.
Brian Fallon, a spokesman for Clinton’s campaign, took to Twitter to acknowledge the development.
“We were always confident nothing would cause the July decision to be revisited,” Fallon wrote. “Now Director Comey has confirmed it.”
Kellyanne Conway, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, took to MSNBC to criticize Comey..
“The investigation has been mishandled from the beginning,” Conway said. “[Clinton] was reckless, she was careless, she was selfish.”
