October 29,2016 (Washington D.C.)—FBI Director James Comey has notified Congress that it is renewing its investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of e-mails on a private server.
The action comes after emails were found on a computer shared by top Clinton aide Huma Abedin and her estranged husband, ex-Congressman Anthony Wiener. Huma had used the computer to send e-mails to Clinton. The computer was seized as part of an investigation into Wiener for allegedly sexting a teenage girl. It is unclear whether any of the emails were sent by Clinton, or whether they are new or duplicates of e-mails already examined before an earlier probe was dismissed, or if any contained classified material.
Both Democratic and Congressional leaders have called on Comey and on Attorney General Loretta Lynch to promptly provide further disclosure and clarity.
