FBI to probe new emails in Hillary Clinton case

By Lisa Lerer

The FBI will investigate whether there is classified information in newly-discovered emails related to its probe of Hillary Clinton's private server.

Donald Trump immediately pounced on the turn of events, telling supporters at his first campaign rally of the day, that he has "great respect" for the fact that the FBI and the Department of Justice are now "willing to have the courage to right the horrible mistake that they made", in concluding the investigation earlier.

Yesterday's disclosure raises the possibility of the FBI reopening the criminal investigation involving the Democratic presidential nominee, which the agency said was complete in July.

In a letter sent to congressional leaders, FBI Director James Comey said that new emails have emerged, prompting the agency to "take appropriate investigative steps" to review information that flowed through the private email server Mrs Clinton used while serving as secretary of state.
